We stayed here recently overnight. The service was wonderful, and the apartment was clean, comfortable and convenient. The apartment is within easy walking distance of the Metro, so a great place to stay close to Newcastle, without being in the heart of it.

We stayed for 2 nights on a Saturday and Sunday a few weeks ago visiting our daughter at uni. The facilities at the apartment meant we could eat in on the Saturday night with her and there is enough space for the 3 of us to relax in. On the Sunday we went for lunch by the river and got...

So...visiting son at Uni for Birthday last weekend so we wanted somewhere for the whole family to stay and if he wanted to join us (get out of his awful Uni hall of residence - I bet that won't be reviewed on trip advisor!!!) we thought an apartment hotel would suit us.

We stayed here to visit our son and daughter who are students living in Jesmond. We were celebrating a birthday and wanted somewhere they could drop into with space for us all. All amenities were there, sky sports so the football could be watched with our son. Great kitchen with all utensils including glasses for fizz and anything else needed....

First stay and will be staying again. Came to visit our daughter who is a student and lives close by. The location is on a main road but if you get an apartment at the back it is super quiet. The pictures on the website slightly over sell it - the quality of the fixtures and fittings aren't 5 star...

This was the second time I have stayed here, the time before being 3 years ago. Staff are helpful, love the little bits they give you in the fridge (milk etc).
