Most of the cheaper guest house style accommodation is to be found in the north of the city around the suburb of Jesmond – look for places on and off the Osbourne Road. Buses leave for this area from outside the Central railway station and the Haymarket. If you’re looking for a really good bargain for your accommodation, it’s probably best to look across the River Tyne to Gateshead. A 3 star hotel such as the ‘Bewick’ on Prince Consort Road will give you a double room for £25 a night. Remember there are excellent links into Newcastle from Gateshead – 20 minutes by bus and 5 minutes on the Metro.
However, even out in the suburbs of Student accommodation Newcastle , a 2 star hotel like the Dene Hotel, about 11/2 miles outside the city centre on Grosvenor Road, will be £40 a night and a 3 star hotel such as The Jesmond, on Osbourne Road, can be £50 a night for bed and breakfast.
All the national chains of hotels are present in Newcastle. For example, Premier Lodge, located at the Quayside with a price from £65 a night, is excellent value. It has the coveted Quayside location at a price below what you’d expect from one of the national chain of hotels. A Premier Lodge is a Premier Lodge anywhere, so you know exactly what to expect in terms of the room and facilities. The Quayside Premier Lodge occupies what was once the Exchange Building. There are other Premier Lodges in Newcastle ranging from £53 a night for a typical double room. The Newcastle Novotel is some 4 miles out of the city centre with its room prices starting at £42 a night. Copthorne, Hilton, Swallow, Thistle and Holiday Inn are also to be found in the city.
If you’re determined to stay inside the heart of the city itself, prices start from about £60 per night for a 4 star hotel. The Student accommodation Newcastle is typical for the area. The Grey Street, like many of the new breed of ‘city’ hotels, is sited in an old Victorian bank and prides itself on its minimalism and style.
At the top end of the range are hotels such as ‘Malmaison’. For an old warehouse located on the Quayside it has style and luxury in abundance. Rooms currently range from £100 to £140 a night. The Royal Station Hotel, surprisingly close to the Central railway station on Neville Street, is another of Newcastle’s ‘posher’ hotels, cheaper than Malmaison, but then it isn’t on the waterfront. At prices from £90 a night it offers all the grandiose statements you’d expect from a Victorian railway hotel in the centre of a city. Majestic staircase in the lobby and a chandelier worth £25,000!
