OVERVIEW

Hotel Indigo enjoys a prime location just a few minutes' walk from both Central Station and the city centre's buzzing restaurants, bars and venues. The hotel's facilities are well considered, and its design draws on Newcastle's architectural gems like the Theatre Royal and Grainger Market. Better yet is the excellent service from the friendly, professional staff.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Hotel Indigo is ideally located for exploring Newcastle, a few minutes' walk from the station and the city centre and with plenty of shops, restaurants and venues in the surrounding streets. Though it's just off a main road, near several bus stops, it doesn't feel too noisy.

By car: over 5 hours from London and 3 hours from Manchester. On-site parking costs £14 per day.

By train: London Kings Cross to Newcastle takes around 3 hours. The hotel is a 4-minute taxi ride (or 4-minute walk) from the station. Book trains to Newcastle.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The building itself could be anywhere, but its interior design thoughtfully includes elements of the city's visual identity. This is most obvious in the rooms, which have feature walls showing iconic Newcastle buildings, but is also subtly incorporated elsewhere; there's plenty of use of black and white, to match the football team's colours.

THE FACILITIES

With everything you could need right outside the door, Hotel Indigo keeps its facilities streamlined - a bar-restaurant, small 24-hour gym and on-site parking. It's the service which makes the hotel special, with friendly, knowledgeable staff who strike that tricky balance of being proactive and friendly without ever becoming overbearing.
