Advantages good location, looks wonderful and stylish
Newcastle is one of my favourite cities in England and perhaps because it so easily accessible. You can take the train but also fly to Newcastle and you're within half an hour in the centre. That is also where you encounter this hotel and it has a perfect location. The hotel is located in "Grey Street" and is within walking distance from the railway station and within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. For instance it’s at 10 minutes away of the Eldon Square Mall where you really can empty your wallet. The hotel is located on a busy street but you notice nothing in terms of noise. Given it’s right in the city centre there is no private parking and you need to use the parking garage further down the street.My first impression of the hotel was very good. The hotel is situated in a beautiful old Victorian (I think or something similar) and while the building looks old, it is very modern and stylish. Especially when you go inside it is modern and especially small but cosy. Upon entering the reception you will see at your right a small lobby with a few comfortable chairs. Here you can have a cup of coffee and there are a few newspapers. Next to the reception you have a small room with the elevator and stairs. Although the hotel seems very small, yet it has 49 rooms and corridors. The entire building has the old style of the building, but also a modern design in terms of floor and furniture.
The reception is located directly at the entrance of the hotel. It has a 24 hours reception which is very nice. At night the door were locked and the staff can only open the door. Very useful and clever as it is located in an entertainment area with bars and restaurants do not want drunk people at the hotel. At the reception were two men and we were kindly helped. My details were known and they only needed my credit card. After everything was settled I got the room key and we got the explanation about where it was.In a word great. We stayed in a standard room and I must say that this is not very large in feeling, but you have everything you could need and above the bed is pretty big. Luckily you have a high ceiling, which I think gives it a spacious feeling especially when you walk around. You do not feel that you for example have to duck the whole time. Upon entering you have on your right your bathroom with a bath with shower and toilet. There is a hairdryer, but also free soap and shampoo. Of course it was important that the bathroom was clean and looked very neat. Always nice to see that there were two robes which were very soft and comfortable.
On the right you're right on entering a box where you can store your gear and your clothes can hang. Here you have a kettle with the ability to make tea and coffee. A little further you have a nice plasma TV with DVD player. The bed itself is the best thing in the room and very comfortable. So it is a leather bed and have Egyptian sheets with huge pillows and mattress was just right. Not too soft nor too hard and when you lie down you sink a little way and you lie to lovely soft pillows.
