OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

Situated opposite the River Tyne, the hotel has a large garden terrace to catch some sun rays in summer with superb views overlooking the waters. You can walk to the central train station in around 8 minutes and the plethora of bars, cafes and top-quality diverse restaurants are within walking distance too. Träkol serves incredibly tasty and interesting dishes such as fermented fried potatoes, hearty bone marrow and delicate kale salads, and is well worth a visit.

By car: the hotel is 5 hours 20 mins from London and 3 hours from Manchester.

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

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The floors are open plan which creates a modern spacious feel; expect quirky artwork, often by local artists, some of which can be purchased. Alongside the reception are locally made gifts and foodie treats to buy for mementos. Cool, clean greys and whites give the hotel a calming, yet uplifting feel.

THE FACILITIES

You can make use of the River Tyne opposite by hiring kayaks and paddle boards from reception. Disappointingly, you need to get your coffee from a machine for breakfast. Fitness fanatics will love the unique e-fit concept with virtual personal training on demand and a 24-hour gym.

BED AND BATH

Floor-to-ceiling windows allow natural light to flood into the spacious contemporary rooms dressed in cool, neutral tones. Quirky colourful additions pop, such as local lingo 'am clamming' - as in 'I'm hungry' - scrawled onto mirrors, paintings and retro turquoise and red telephones by the beds.

Room types: Innside Room, Innside Twin Room, Innside River View, Innside Balcony Room, The Studio River View, Innside Studio Balcony, The Townhouse

Key amenities: ensuite bathroom, TV, hairdryer, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi

FOOD AND DRINK

The restaurant and bar are popular, no doubt due to serving a large selection of Italian wines and classics like handmade pizza, pasta and antipasti sharing platters, and many more authentic Italian options in the open-plan restaurant, but also due to the fantastic views over the River Tyne and the extensive terrace used during the summer months.

Gino D'Acampo Quayside: Italian cuisine. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Mains from £12.50.
