cigarette burns on the carpet, stains on the carpet, very small room, shower curtain not screen, air conditioning unit screeching!
There is nothing better in this city so its the only option! Hotels in general are very poor in the UK....the quality of the materials that they use in their buildings is really the cheapest of the cheapest.....a 3 start hotel in Germany looks better than a 5 star in the UK......the water pressure in the showers is always an issue and my bidet at home is bigger than the bathtubs!
superb views good location car parking charge
The hotel was very nice, clean and couldnt have asked for a nicer place to stay
The hotel was clean, modern and staff were very helpful. The hotel location is a five minute walk from the quay side and a five minute walk to the bus station - were you can get a bus that takes ten mins to get to the metro centre. Didn't like the fact the hotel had no free parking facilities. You need to pay for the car park which costs around £6 per night
on check in there was only one member of staff so we waited quite a while to check in and there was a lot of noise right into the early hours of the morning from other guests
The room was roomy and spotless. Lovely bathroom and excellent shower. We have a good view of the City as well. The staff were friendly, courteous and helpful.
Reception/housekeeping staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Good location in the city. Good facilities. Bar/restaurant staff were rude and unwelcoming. Our friends were allocated a disabled room with a disabled bathroom which was not requested or needed as clearly neither of them were disabled or required such a room. We do not feel that this was acceptable.
Location to attractions
Location was just what I wanted Meeting friends and enjoying a very nice meal in Chinatown The Dragon House
Comfortable, quiet and calm.A lot of oldfashioned charm with helpful staff. Good service in restaurant.
Ease of access directly to city, facilities, bars, staff, the fact that it is an independent hotel & not a chain
its location and the high standard of the hotel. I would have liked to check in an hour earlier.
We enjoyed the extra luxury of staying in a prime location in the city, we got upgraded to the bridal suite and no extra cost whic was fantastic and everyone was polite and very helpful, we would certainly come again and would be happy to recommend the hotel. we also loved the bathroom, the shower was great. we did not have breakfast as it was rather expensive and all the reviews said it wasnt worth it,
It's proximity to the city, you couldn't get closer to the shopping and sights if you tried! The hotel was very basic, it had no atmosphere and looked shabby and in nead of a refit. A distinct lack of luxury swing as it has a 4 star rating!
Friendly staff and easy parking
Very helpful doorman who provided free map of Newcastle and information leaflet plus friendly advice Confusing 'levels' rather than floor numbers. Unusual for breakfast not to be included in room price.
Excellent facilities and service. Fantastic breakfast! None
I really liked the comfort of the rooms. To be honest I had no problem with the hotel as such.
Parking of Car for the last night was paid for by Hotel. Car Parking Policy was not explained on Check-In even though the car Registration Number was completed on the Check-In Registration Form at the time. Breakfast staff (and most probably the supervisor) require to be trained: It took 3/4 of an hour and 3 reminders to get my breakfast of Kippers processed. The Staff commonly pass by tables with out clearing used / empty plates & bowles until the cooked breakfast plate is to be served or the tables are vacated. It is expected that the cooked breakfast plate be cleared once the contents has been eaten and pending the completion of drinking the balance of the tea / coffee pot!
Staff were excellent Hotel rooms were too hot
Its excellent location,good breakfast,helpful staff The decor was purple, grey and black - altogether too gloomy
The ambiance of the hotel, very peaceful and relaxing. A double booking had been put through on your website which caused some confusion at check in as they had allocated 2 rooms for us.
large room, comfortable bed. parking at car park over the road, despite it being inexpensive. Public areas generally a liitle dark.
Good stay overall. We (there were 3 of us on business) arrived at around 1 Pm and were told check in was 2 Pm so waited, only then to be told it was 3 PM. I still got my room at 2 Pm but my collagues had to use the spa to freshen up as we had a business meeting at 2.30 PM. I asked for a wake up call at 7.30 am but did not get a call. That said, still a good hotel overall and staff were friendly.
Bar and Bistro staff very good service indeed. Nothing was too much trouble Dvd player in room wasn't working. Reported it 4 times and not got fixed. Had to checkout with dvd still stuck in machine so lost it. Hotel reception not very apologetic but gave me car park for free.
Being close to Quayside. The room was well stocked with all he amenties needed for a night's stay and although we did not eat in the hotel, room service and the menu looked appropriate. We were placed in a room designed for the disabled so the bathroom layout and design was not what we expected. The room also had an ajoining door. The people who were in the next room were still talking at 4am - not 'rowdy' but loud enough to disturb our sleep.
The location. Room looked shabby and very dated with thread bear seats, an uncomfortable bed,grubby bathroom with a tap that leaked water all over the sink area.We were woken repeatedly through the night by people shouting and banging on doors.This is not what you expect from such an expensive hotel,extremely poor value for money!
The location of the hotel was excellent and the room was adequate and the reception staff were helpful. This was our third stay at the hotel and it appears to be letting its standards slip, there were not enough bar and waiting staff and the tables were all full of uncollected plates etc,we had to wait an age to get served if the barmaid was off her mobile long enough, the breakfast was similar not enough staff, expensive, and generally cold and pour quality/
The design of the room the full length window overlooking the river. The ease of getting to The Sage and the shopping centre. Staff were extremely attentive. We would definitely stay again. Nothing there isn't anything I can find fault with
very comfortable bed communal areas very smart and pleasant bathroom past its best and shower facilities poor- not what I would expect from hotel of this level view from room very poor
Posistion was fantastic, our rooms had floor to ceiling windows, top floor with a fab view of the river
General ambienece and location
Close proximity to the city centre and the river views from the room Wireless internet is only in Hotel Lobby and costs £20 per day(this is not rocket science and Hotel are out of order here). Bed was a bit hard and AC was a bit hot (control problem) and overall decor/fittings etc are dated and worn and reflect the time the hotel has been trading in this location. Car parking is an excellent bonus and lots of private space available for guests. Concierge is great and knows his stuff. (In general Hotel needs refurbishing but overall a clean and tidy place to stay).
Location for city centre the whole building was cold, the air con was noisey, the bathroom was shabby and cold. the breakfast was poor and the unhrlpful
The interior design of the rooms and the reception area and cellar bar was outstandingly elegant, uncluttered and enjoyable. We welcomed the opportunity to go to the adjoining restaurant for dinner. The water in the shower didn't drain away and Channel 5 was unobtainable - we wanted to watch the Test Match. An iron with an ironing board would be a welcome addition.
The room was very clean and comfortable and newly furnished, staff very helpful. The panini that i ordered through room service was over cooked and hard. Also i paid cash in the morning and yet the hotel held back funds in my bank account which have not been released to date!
Decor is chic and position is terrific Breakfast service was hit and miss. No room for an armchair in the bedroom
I was impressed with the Grey Street Hotel and will definitely be staying there again.
Staff went out of their way to help me with all the problems I encountered with the hotel. Too many to detail here! See the reviews on TripAdvisor too.
The friendliness of the staff and the extremely well-appointed room, spotlessly clean. The hotel was ideal for our theatre/shopping stopover.
handy to town centre
Contemporary modern rooms, good location in Newcastle city centre and close to bars and restaurants. Breakfast delivered to room was very poor. Room was located next to air conditioning shaft which was very noisy.
Great concept. Convenient and well run. Keep up the good work and open more. None
I thought that breakfast was very well executed I asked for a alarm call which never came!
It's very luxury! The suites are modern, minimal designed, having all the facilities for a quality way of living!!!!!
Accommodating and friendly staff, a clean comfortable room with no interior or exterior noise. Complimentary welcome pack with tea or coffee available at any time was a nice touch. Breakfast time can be quite busy and maybe more staff and a quicker turn around of hot food could help this.
Staff were great
the refreshing and novel idea of the suite where its like your own personal flat
1.convenience of having a well equipped kitchen. 2. everything very well designed for function and looks. 3. excellence of all staff. the shower floor is slippery.
Absolutly perfect for the weekend, and in fact I'd like to move in! Great Accom!
Very good size suite, still looks quite new, and furnished very comfortably. Quality mattress, and good location for the Quayside/Baltic Mill. Helpful staff, and one of the better buffet breakfasts we've had. Slightly out of the city centre for shops & restaurants (apart from those on the Quayside), and not the most enjoyable walk back at night.
the black mould all over the bathroom ceiling!!!!
Checking out Everything
Situation of hotel.easy access to shops,bars.cleanliness
Breakfast was freshly cooked. Was difficult to find - situated in an area that 'has alot to be desired' Outlook was of a rail bridge and underneath it's arch's - the 'homeless' living. Not recommended for a saturday night stay - unless you like the noise/music until 3am of the pubs and clubs.
Requirements met for a one night stay.Good value for money-£45.
clean /comfortable room situation as it was very noisy until about 4am also they ran out of supplies for cooked breakfast
Staff very friendly and helpful Public areas very worn
Location of hotel Had to stand and wait 25 minutes for soneone to come and book us in at the reception No heating provdided apart from mini desk heater which did not provide much heat at all mould on the bathroom ceiling and walls and stunk curtains were not big enough to cover the window which made the room cold and draughty. Waited 40 minutes for breakfast in the morning where we sat in a cold room because of the heating not working
I like the location, the hotel is really near the centre. The bed wasn´t comfortable
Excellent location in the Quayside area of Newcastle. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room wasn't prepared and shower head was missing when we checked in. We had to be moved to a another room. A brighter decor would improve the atmosphere.
The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. I couldn't fault them. Bit noisy from Thursdays to Sundays because of Jimmyz Bar being underneath, but the live music finished at 11pm and there was secondary glazing on the windows which helped. Other than that, no problems really.
Location is great for nightlife. Receptionists friendly. Bathroom smelt of damp. Staff refused to serve breakfast at 10.25 despite breakfast being advertised until 10.30. Overpriced.
Nice place and good location and good price. Good decor and breakfast. Could have been a little cleaner, a bit dusty round the edges.
The peresonnel were really courteous, and helpful and the room was comfortable. Great breakfast... thank yuo againa to wonderful staff Nothing that springs to mind - it was a good experience all round
Its proxcimity to centre of town Bar downstairs rather noisy in rooms
it was nice and comfortable, breakfast was lovely everything was just fine
Reception staff were very friendly. The rooms and corridors were dark and the carpets dingy. The bathroom was clean and nicely tiled but my bed had a dip in the middle.and was uncomfortable. The windows were grimy. The cooked breakfast was ok but the coffee was like dish water. There was a strong smell of disinfectant in some areas. Two of our bedroom lights did not work and we had to ask for a heater because the central heating had been switched off (mid April in Newcastle was still quite cold), the heater did not work so we went to sleep without.
Central location. Very comfortable and attractively furnished room. Helpful staff. For a place which was trying very hard to be 'designer' and cool, there were some odd features - plastic glasses for fruit juice at breakfast, for example.
Breakfast & free parking. No complaints at all.
