stayed her for a birthday treat. I was greeted in hotel bedroom by a complimentary "happy birthday tray" adorned with a few sweet treats! Thank you, it was a nice surprise! The room was clean and bed very comfortable. The shower was a nice big size. We enjoyed the steam room, Jacuzzi and pool. A very pleasant stay and would stay again.
Bottle Bank, Gateshead NE8 2AR, UK – 0191 490 9700
I stayed one night only. The atmosphere inside and outside the hotel is really good. The food and welcome reception is fantastic, plus a unique view over the bridge and the river. The downside is you need to pay additional for internet access! and the water in the jacuzzi was cold! These are not expected from Hilton!
Been here on several occasions for food, both afternoon tea and evening meals. The view of the Tyne bridge from the restaurant is impressive, although to be honest I prefer the view from the Six restaurant on the roof of the Baltic Mill nearby. The food is generally to a good standard but the menu is pretty average and not outstanding or upmarket food. So if you are looking for a better dining experience maybe consider trying the Six Restaurant, 21 or House of tides along the quayside nearby. And sometimes the rice or pasta ain’t always perfect, salads can be limp. And you may have to wait....oops Their car park ain’t free either btw, just for a meal you’ll be charged around £5 per vehicle. And £12 for an overnight stay. They also have a licensed bar, and yeah it’s a lot more expensive than a conventional bar so beware if you go mad on the drink. Bring the credit card 💳 and you’ll be fine 😉

A great downtown location just a few minutes easy walk from the station, the metro and the bus station. We got a really warm welcome and when Paul on reception knew we were having a city break he gave us a very helpful introduction. The room was comfortable. The food was good but not brilliant. We enjoyed our stay in Newcastle and the hotel helped make the experience so positive.
Stayed 2 nights with a large group of over 90. Each year we have to book a hotel for an outside event and we have had varying experiences over many years. This hotel was by far the best we have used in a long time. Lovely food, clean, great reception service, great general service, friendly helpful staff including restaurant, bar, taxi valet lady and the night porter who went above and beyond his normal duties. Although our weekend was busy, it was nice to come back to the relaxing atmosphere at the hotel.

We went for the 37p wing deal, available Wednesday's and Friday's. The wings were surprisingly meaty and there was a lot of types to choose from but most of them were spicy / salty and so I think the selection could be more varied. Drinks are not cheap but expected for a hotel bar in its location however with the wing deal the overall bill was under 30 for 3 people. The round booth table we sat at was tight and not at all comfortable, did not leave a lot of room especially for a larger fella like me. Overall good but would not make it a regular.
This is a really strange aquarium. There’s an elaborate drinks reception before they take you to visit the sea creatures, which lots of shouting people went to. Everyone was so amped up for visiting the fish! It probably lasted a bit too long because I ended up having a lot of pre-fish drinks and it made me miss the start of the tour. I tried to get through the doors at the back but people kept stopping me so it must have been an entourage-only deal. I did a few laps of the place while I waited for another guide and took in the sights. There was an overwhelming presence of lads swallowing identical pints. I approached one of the groups and asked about the fish. “I can drink like a fish”, one of them screamed at me in response, his eyes pointing at different parts of the ceiling. He’d clearly got way too worked up so I left him to it. All of the TVs had football on which I thought was a lamentable waste of an opportunity to whet our appetites for aquatic goings-on with some well-placed fish footage. The really smart thing to do would be put on clips of fish that live at the aquarium so that when you go in you get to meet famous sea life from TV. Some particularly sadistic people had cooked fish brought out to their table. I assume they were at the end of the tour and this was a situation similar to when you get to the end of a museum and they bottleneck you in the gift shop while you look for the exit, except instead of yo-yos and mini versions of the exhibits you get offered the aquariums ex-residents. Or maybe when you’re enjoying the fish and you spot one you really like the look of the staff give you the option to take it to the next level. I didn’t actually get around to visiting the fish tanks or trying the eponymous Shark Bars, but did watch two soaking wet men attack each other which pretty much satisfied my desire to see something get bitten.

Oh my! Pub a few doors down recommended this place to go eat. Food was exceptional can't really say any more. Now this must be a first, downstairs was the bar (empty) and upstairs was the restaurant area (not one empty seat) well done to this establishment and it's staff I was very impressed.
Went in for a light lunch and some drinks. Had a delicious hand-raised pork pie with amazing piccalilli. Good local beer selection and traditional decor. A great spot!
Old George Yard, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 1EZ, UK – 0191 260 3035
Good drinkers boozer. Gets rammed on a weekend but there's a reasonable amount of room over a few floors. It looks much better after refurbishment. There's also outside seating and occasional live acts perform in that area during the summer months. I've rehearsed with my band several times in the function room and that too is decent, if a bit on the small side. Maybe not 'dead cool' but quite well priced for a city central bar plus it serves decent grub.
Centrally located, has a wide range of cask beers, well priced. Food is straight forward pub food, and is served quickly. Enjoyed what I had. There are multiple rooms, so easy to find a good table somewhere.

2 Manor House Rd, Newcastle upon Tyne NE2 2LU, UK – 0191 281 1396
For the price, this is a nice little b and b. Stayed in single ensuite rooms. Bathrooms were a bit small but functional. Breakfast was very good, catering for vegetarians too. Proprietor was friendly, helpful and lovely. Car parking was no extra cost as hotel provides permits free for the duration of your stay. We stayed on a very hot weekend in July and the rooms were very hot, so I think a fan in the room would have been welcome, other than this I would stay again as it's very close to the city but not right in the centre so no problems with noise when sleeping.
We found The Avenue Hotel very nice and comfortable, room very clean and breakfast was really good cooked by hotel owner. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Will definitely use again Many thanks

Jen, I just wanted to say a ‘BIG THANK YOU’ for letting me stay at your lovely home Westview again recently. I’ve visited Newcastle three times now, and both yourself, and Geoff and have always been so welcoming, I appreciated your kindness, and my stays have felt like ‘home from home’. A little gem in a big city! Your rooms are clean, warm, and very comfortable. Breakfasts too are top notch, and nothing was too much trouble. West View is located in a quiet residential part of Newcastle, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. So again, many thanks!
So glad that I stayed at Westview. Jen and Geoff were wonderful hosts, very easy going and full of advice about where to go anything I needed. Being a woman travelling alone, it was so nice to feel safe in a city, just like staying with friends. The room was lovely and the food was delicious, the dogs were cute too. Will definitely return soon. Regards Janet (sally :)

Friendly welcoming owner & staff, very helpful & accommodating. Great value, great price thank you. Will definitely come back again when the Arsenal play in Newcastle next season.
Nice clean and friendly. Priced fairly. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or to stay again. Breakfast is good.
If you would like something truly different you might like to have a look at Airbnb. These are mostly B and Bs provided by people on a very informal basis. The may have a spare room, a yurt, a cottage or a barge with space they can receive guests for a night or a month! The website is highly professional. You can really see what you are going to get. Very well worth a look. Airbnb also show 'conventional' B&Bs as well. Enjoy!
