5mins walk to centre, friendly staff up for a laugh. Must have quality👌. Rooms look like they had been done up recently , clean tidy, for a single bed was quite comfy too which was a bonus! Breakfast was nice enough too. Ideal location for arena and city centre!

I have just returned from the Holiday Inn Express, Newcastle. The rooms were nice, not huge but everything you could want and nicely decorated. Rooms had iron, board, hairdryer, free Wi-Fi, etc. Staff on reception were friendly and knowledge about the local area. Breakfast was fine, lots of choice.

Myself and my partner stopped here last night and it's a lovely hotel. It's cheap, cheerful and most importantly clean. It's in a great location in the centre of Newcastle, not too far from the bars and shops. There's a car park next door which is 90p an hour parking or £6 for the day which is cheap. Plus if...

Very good location and price, less than £70 for a family room on a Friday night in the heart of Newcastle. Breakfast included too. Rooms more than adequate reception staff very friendly and helpful. Free overnight parking and only £6 all day. Would stay again

Arrived after a long day and was made to feel very welcome. Holiday Inn is a corporate hotel so I wasn't expecting much but the warm smiles made the place special. My room was nice, breakfast was OK and I slept really well.

This is exactly what you would expect from a holiday inn. Modern, clean, friendly staff, decent breakfast. Why an "average" rating then? Well, its for things you dont expect from a Holiday Inn... The bed for example was uncomfortable (far too lumpy for my liking). Also, and most importantly, there was hair on the decorative pillow on my bed! Long...
