          Staff friendly and helpful.

          Room was not ready at designated time (14:00).

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          The room was great and although there were two stag parties in the hotel-we never heard a thing and slept well!

          We didn't think the breakfast was very good value .We will stay at the hotel again but not buy breakfast!

        • Couple
          7.8

          Good clean room very nice cooked breakfast

        • Group of friends

          Friendly and helpful staff. Stayed at New Kent Hotel often when visiting son at Newcastle University.

        • Group of friends

          All in all it was fine and served the purpose of being near my relative.

          The bed was very badly made.

        • Couple
          6.2

          Very noisy floors, difficult to sleep. Night staff next to useless but day staff very good.

        • Single
          7.4

          Good value, well located, friendly staff and clean hotel.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Good location in pleasant neighbourhood near Metro, clean and comfortable room, quiet. Good tea/coffee making facility in room.

          Breakfast at almost £10 on top of the hotel cost was much too high. We declined this and had breakfast in the city instead. Even a cheaper option breakfast (e.g. just cereal and juice) would have been fine.

        • Single
          7.0

          I like the fact that I had windows that I could open and a very spacious bathroom.

          I don't think the car parking facilities are adequate for the size of hotel.

        • Couple
          7.0

          helpful staff

          room could have been more modern especially bathroom

        • Couple
          6.6

          The staff were very friendly and helpful

          The floorboards in the room were extremely creaky. The bar wasn't open in early evening and hence downstairs had no atmosphere so only option was to venture out as soon as we were ready.

        • Single
          7.8

          The staff were very pleasant, the room was comfortable and the breakfast was excellent

        • Single
          8.2

          Efficient but relaxed atmostphere. Staff very polite and obliging . Quiet at night and felt no concern about staying there as a single woman and returning at 12.30am.

          Nothing major. I like a window open at night but being on a quite busy road meant ear plugs were needed. I didn't sleep very soundly not sure if it was the bed or me!

        • Couple
          10.0

          the location and cleanliness of the room and hotel and the good night sleep with no external noise

          lack of car parking

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          It was clean, comfortable and generally very well suited our needs for visiting Newcastle and Gateshead. Although located near to many other hotels and bars the location was surprisingly quite and peaceful.

          There did not appear to be a lift which would have been very inconvenient for some and meant that all guests had to lug their cases up stairs that were not very wide.
