This is the second time I've stayed here, nice hotel, clean and comfortable, if a little expensive.
Booked for 4 adults as we were attending a concert at the Sage.
Very pleasant stay, with very friendly and helpful staff.
Nice quiet location only minutes from the Baltic Mill, Sage or Millennium Bridge .
If you are fit and healthy this is also a great location for a walk into Newcastle City centre. (Around half an hour). Car parking is available on site for £5 per 24 hours. Rooms are a good size, clean and well laid out. There is also a gym for those who feel the need.

The hotel was ok.
Clean, functional and just right for a place to crash. Paying an extra sum for breakfast was a bit cheeky (& it wasn't that special) but paying to park was not cricket. I drove from the south of England to stay here; of course I want to park my car. I get that it's a business but milking every last penny (epitomised by enough milk for one brew each in the room) leaves a bit of a bad impression. Still, clean and functional
No issues, nice hotel
Had a pleasant stay at this hotel, nice distance from town and excellent service just a bit pricey but we were there the weekend of the rugby World Cup so I'm imaging inflated prices.
Ideal location for visiting Newcastle via Gateshead Millenium Bridge.
The hotel is in an ideal location for travelling around the area with good transport links.
A pleasant walk over the Gateshead Millenium Bridge and along the Quayside takes you into the centre of Newcastle. Accommodation is basic, clean and was quiet during our stay. Replacement supplies of tea, coffee, sugar and milk were very limited and normally required a request at reception. Our main disappointment was with the evening meal in the restaurant. We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant after a long day out but the whole experience was enough to say never again. My wife asked what the vegetables were with the cottage pie, and was told green beans, carrots and red onions. 50 minutes later, the waitress came to ask if everything was alright with our meal but stopped mid-sentence when she realised we that we were still waiting for it to arrive. When the meal eventually arrived, the vegetables were actually cauliflower, cabbage, peas and carrots - the first two being her pet hates. Our meals were not piping hot, suggesting they had been prepared and left for some time awaiting collection. Added to this, the portion size of the chicken tikka was not value for money. Our waitress passed our comments on to the chef and returned with the comment "There is nothing he can do about it". This left us feeling very undervalued as customers.
Good position not so good food
position excellent for a city break as you can easily walk into the centre.
After staying in one night to eat as weather not good we were all disappointed with quality and quantity of food for price and after saying this to the staff they didn't seem to care or know what to say or do, so wouldn't eat there again.

Lovely clean and very warm hotel.
Would have liked 2 large towels so there was one per guest.
Take money before departure left with no money in bank
