Arrived in Newcastle only to told that the hotel had to be shut down due to lack of water?!
Did not get the help I wanted and the receptionists were uninterested in helping me sort alternate accommodation.
Had to organize a new hotel at the very last minute and late in a very cold and dark night in an unfamiliar city.
I am afraid I will never stay in a Travelodge again nor recommend it to my colleagues or staff.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Travelodge Newcastle Central Hotel

Loved the Travelodge experience

from disco316
terrific, splendid, one of the great nites I ave ever had! i could go on and on bout my stay there because i enjoyed the atmosphere, the first class service from staff to the extent that i am going again in November 2006.

A good hotel

from tletter

We stayed at this Travelodge on 23 August 2006. The price was excellent as was the room itself which was clean, comfortable and spacious.

The location is very convenient to downtown Newcastle near the Tyne River. It is a short walk to catch the excellent Newcastle Metro system (Manors station) that’ll whisk you easily to the Newcastle Airport. If you have more time then Newcastle and its environs is well worth exploring using the Metro system.

Having come from staying at a University of Westminster student residence in London, we were in heaven in the Travelodge and paid less as well.


Great Location

from Menis
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for one night in July as the Travel Inn on the Quayside only takes two night bookings over the weekend. The Travelodge is in a great, central location. We took a taxi from the Airport but the Metro on the return which was so simple we should have taken the Metro in to the centre (£2.60 pp versus £18 in a taxi). We arrived quite early but were lucky to be given our room straight away which meant we had somewhere to leave our bags. The hotel is very large and it can be noisy (as per previous reports and comments taxi drivers made to us) but we didn't encounter any noise and would definitely stay at the hotel again for the convenience, cleanliness and value for money. The hotel has a bar/restaurant which serves breakfast until 11 am at the weekend. The hotel was full of hen and stag parties but it didn't effect us. There is a bouncer on the door when you get back late at night as well as security key entry (although this weekend the key entry wasn't working and the door was always open). Our only criticism was on Sunday morning we wanted to leave our bags as our flight wasn't until later that evening but the baggage room, as well as two bedrooms, were already full of bags so either get up early if you want to leave your bags or, do as we did, and go to Newcastle Central Station where you can leave your bags at the high cost of £4 per bag. Overall a great stay - we would definitely return.

wot a place!!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
a nice clean place but above all the best thing about the hotel is that it caters for large parties especially the younger age groups. It did seem a bit on the dear side but the rooms were spotless and comfotable to sleep in.

Great location

This Travelodge is ideally situated beside Newcastle's quayside and is only a short walk from the shopping streets in the city centre. These are its best points. Its bad points are that it really is for young people which suited myself, but if I had been on a sensible weekend I would not have liked to stay here. The hotel has bouncers on the doors at night time at the weekend and the local fire brigade is a constant feature to this hotel. Apparently the male species find it amusing to let the fire alarms off in the middle of the night. We also came across the local police officers after an incident which I'm glad to say i didn't see. The staff are friendly enough although the D.I.Y coffee machines were out of order. The rooms were basic but clean but don't expect to come across a hairdryer, iron, toiletries or an adequate number of towels. All in all it was cheap and cheerful and served its purpose for our weekend. Anyone over 50 stay well clear!!

ve stayed in

from A TripAdvisor Member
I organised a group booking of 30 people from the Midlands for a conference in Newcastle. We chose the Travel Lodge on price and location through an agent. Although we only stayed for one night, over 8 of our party were subject to abuse, obscene language and yobbish behaviour from midnight to 3:30am.
When we complained to the staff, we were brushed off with 'Oh that happens every weekend, we warn about it on the web site!'
My advise, NEVER book into a Travel Lodge, pay a bit extra and go to an hotel that actually cares about it's guests.

Take the earplugs!

from Oscar Brian
We booked in for one night whilst clearing a relatives house. The hotel is very well situated close to the Quayside and is modern with pleasant rooms and friendly staff. The problem for us was that the window catch wasn't just broken, it wasn't there. We had to get the hotel staff to close the window but this could only be pulled in, not locked, so the double glazing seal was inoperative. This is a hotel at a junction on a hill with lots of heavy traffic, so itwas very noisy most of the night.

Travel Lodge emphasise good value and no unnecessary frills, but a window that closes properly is pretty fundamental in this location. We were not the only ones with this problem so check it out before you unpack!

central and cheap

from ccraig708
we checked in and were given a card for our room but when we tried to get into our room it was already occupied... next day the same happened to us my friend was in her underwear when a group of girls tried to get into our room we complained to manager then i realised my shoes had been stolen on top of all that we had to keep goin to reception to get our cards activated... ordering food was just as bad we asked for some mayonaise and were rudely told BY THE MANAGER that it wasnt on the menu.. on a friday and saturday there is bouncers on the door they are really friendly but you have no chance of bringing somebody back for some hanky panky all in all you get what you pay for as its situated beside where its all happening

Great Location...

from Milky82
We stayed here at the weekend as we were out on the 'toon' enjoying a hen nite! The location is fantastic for anyone wanting to see Newcastles nightlife. The check in was a bit slow we had 3 rooms booked, and there were lots of other stag and hen parties waiting around and only 1 poor girl on reception! She was friendly and helpful though.
The room was basic - bed, tv, phone, shower - clean but only one towel provided?! We didnt eat at the hotel as it was quite pricey, however there is a vending machine full of late night munchies ...crisps, chocolate, drinks and even paracetmol !! Parking cost us £5 for as long as we needed and we were able to leave our bags in the storage room without any problems. All in all a pleasent stay for £50 a room you cant complain- definately reccommend for hen and stag parties on a weekend.

Absolutely fine

from Briercliffe
At £70 per room per night, i got just what i needed from this Travelodge: a well situated, clean, modern hotel that proved to be good value for money.

I will admit that it was full of stag and hen parties the weekend we were staying (of which i was part of a stag party - best man) so there is truth there, but there was no trouble or noise at night.

The double room i had was plenty large enough, clean and quite well appointed (in the new wing, i think). The shower was good, as was the bed (although pillows were a bit thin!).

The breakfast was adequate for money, and plenty of it.

Bar service was very good - the geordies are very very friendly. Plenty of ice and lemon for our drinks!!

Would have been nice if they had agreed to look after our bags somewhere in the hotel on the sunday, as our flight back was not until the evening (Blaming it on being a bomb risk, which is a load of rubbish. The bags had already been in the hotel for 48 hours, without exploding!!! They suggested lockers at the main rail station - erm, good idea if one bag did contain a bomb!!!!!)

Overall, impressed. Woudl stay again.

Top Local Tips for Newcastle

Beware! This hotel is within easy walking distance of the railway station. Just turn right when you leave the station, carry on walking down till you come to the Subway cafe opposite (I think) St Nicholas Church. Walk down the steep slope that leads to the Quayside. Once at the Quayside, just look for Cox Chare, which is on your left hand side - a cobbled street. We were charged everything from £4 - nearly £6 to drive there by cab so unless you have walking difficulties, walk!

Don't go anywhere near Newcastle when they're playing Sunderland!!!! I was on a stag do in Newcastle when they happened to be playing Sunderland. Newcastle lost 2-1 I believe and the town was like a war zone at 3 o'clock in the afternoon when it was full of shoppers and kids - VERY BAD!!! People fighting in lumps everywhere. Check the fixtures before you go, I imagine certain other teams would have a similar affect!!!!! I'm a 16 stone skinhead Yorkshire lad who's not easily intimidated buteven I found it a bit daunting. Nutters everywhere

Marsden's Grotto, Marsden, near South Shields Visit this pub/restaurant it's amazing!! It's the only place in Europe that's been built in a cave, the decor is great and there's chunks of the cave showing in the walls etc. You can only get a lift down to it and it sits right on the beach - would be amazing in the summer as they also have bands etc on. We had Grotto Beer Battered Fish & Chips which was gorgeous, fresh fish and the chips were proper chips, not frozen.
