I arrived late at night. My key was available even though reception was closed. The room was very comfortable and it was also clean. I only had one concern. There was no safe in the room, unlike other Mercure hotels that I have stayed in. The staff were very good. Kelly was very helpful. She accommodated my need for privacy...

Room is in desperate need of renovation, old furnishings & the bathroom is even worse, old & cracked basin, stained old bathtub, mould in between the tiles on the wall, hard to step in & out of shower as it's in the bath...

Nothing has changed at the hotel over the past few years. The rooms are spacious, service prompt and friendly and plenty of free parking. With clear weather the view from the breakfast area over Newcastle and beyond to Stockton is amazing. The only thing I did notice was a slight mouldy/musty smell in the stairwell area. Still with a large...

I stayed there on a Saturday night with some friends. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the service fantastic and the coffee was great. I was very impressed with the standard of the room - clean, comfortable and tastefully done. The newly renovated dining and bar area is very inviting.
