Met our needs

The hotel is in a good location being right next to the train station and newcastle town centre. Lots of bars and shops nearby also. The lobby of the hotel is nice, staff are friendly and the chandeliers beautiful. Our room (315) was a really good size and had nice furnishing but the decor does needs a little attention as there was paper peeling off the wall above the bed. The room was also a bit too warm for us and there is no way to control the temperature other than opening the window (which isn't ideal given the close location to train station, nightclubs etc). Minor things though a we only stayed two nights.

Visit Durham, about 15 minutes on the train. Beautiful little town and a great retreat from the hustle & bustle of busy Newcastle.

Up to standard

As always from the Royal, a welcoming and helpful booking in experience. Spacious single room, with a huge and cosy bathroom. All immaculately clean, and lots of thoughtful treats. Great that the windows actually opened, and I had total control of the radiators! Excellent position, next to the station, and buses outside the door. Plenty of good food in the vicinity My one and only moan, as everywhere -- no grab rails in the shower!

great

It had a great location . My room was out back --so no traffic noise at all, and i loved hearing/ feeling the rumbling of the trains under me ( I was on first floor ) and hearing the station announcements. Felt very 'Miss Marple ' . Staff very friendly. Room very clean . Really nice that they put complimentary water etc in the mini-bar. Great location for going around the area by train.

Potential unfulfilled

An old railway hotel the building has some stunning architectural features. Décor is generally good but we were bugged by sash windows that wouldn't stay open (no aircon here#, toilets constantly running, toiletries and towels not replenished despite unnecessarily changing towels every day. Breakfast good but overall a splendidly located city centre hotel that needs tender loving care and motivation of the domestic staff - reception however were quite good.

Fabulous

100 metres from Newcastle Railway Station this old hotel has been refurbished.and is a fantastic place to stay with a good restaurant. The room was large and the bathroom superb. There waerre a few snacks in the bar fridge which were free of charge!It was close to shops and the bus station as well as a short walk to the River Tyne

Helpful staff good location comfortable room

On arrival We had to remind the receptionist that we had booked a superior room and received a room on the forth floor which turned out to be very cold.After contacting reception we were immediately given a heater which was not very effective so after further telephone call we were helped to move to a warmer room on the third floor which we found very comfortable and well equipped .Breakfast was very good the following morning and we found the hotel a really good example of the grandure of of hotels which were built at the height of railway era Sure Bradshaw would h ave been impressed as we were.Had a wonderful time I Newcastle and would return to this hotel

Not the best value for money but fantastic location

We had a nice enough stay at The Royal Station and the room was very spacious and comfortable enough. Unfortunately during our stay there was a power cut which meant we could not use the lights or TV in our room during the first nights stay. The shower took a very long time to heat up.So long that I had almost finished my cold shower before realising.It is just beside the train station so very handy if you are travelling by train and the town centre is just a 5 minute walk away. We did spend more than we usually would on accomodation because it was a special occasion but I am not convinced it was worth the extra.
