Room basic. Facilities tired. Maintenance not good. Cleanliness of shared facilities poor. Will not repeat the experience and certainly not at the price paid.

Location is nice, cheap pricing however there is no aircon and the rooms seem to retain heat. So at night it is still 25-30 degrees inside the rooms, couldnt sleep at all.

Painting was falling of the ceiling, shared bathroom facilities. Window looked out on to pub courtyard. Photos are not a true representation of the room. Staff were helpful.

Clean and tidy room, close to the Newcastle centre, plenty of cafes, restaurants and pubs nearby. Had access to room after hours. The restaurant within the Hotel serves a very delicious Pizza.
