In the Royal Quays Retail Park, just off the A19, less than 12.9 km from the heart of Newcastle's city centre, the hotel is 16 km from Newcastle Airport and has free parking. The Premier Inn North Shields has a convenient location with good access to the region's major roads. There are plenty of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars nearby.

The 2 children also get a free full breakfast when accompanied by an adult eating a full breakfast. An all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast is available each morning and includes the expected cooked items such as scrambled, fried, poached or boiled eggs, and pork or vegetarian sausages. There is also a wide continental selection. The on-site Brewers Fayre restaurant offers traditional, great-value pub favourites in a family-friendly environment.
