I have stayed at this location several times. It has been wonderful experience without any issues. The staff are very friendly and extend to make your stay as comfortable as possible. The attached Italian restaurant is an added bonus. The food is excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LozzaDCozza Clean comfortable room, staff friendly
Stayed in this hotel to enable us to visit our son. Our flight was delayed and we didn't get to the hotel until almost midnight, but the staff were warm and welcoming. A nice touch to the room, not only having tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits, but also had carton of juice, bottle of water and a kitkat each. The room was well serviced each day.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jane T66 Not as good as it was
We have stayed here a number of times but it is not as good as it was. Platinum status not acknowledged and no upgrade.
The breakfast is always fantastic however the accommodation is deteriorating each time we stay. The curtains were stained and trailing along the floor. The header tape on one curtain was hanging low as it wasn't fixed to the track for the last few inches. There was no body lotion. The information cards in the room were tatty and stained.
The location is really convenient and quiet and the breakfast great however the rooms just aren't being maintained properly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geezy10 Birthday Weekend
I booked this Holiday Inn in Newcastle Jesmond to celebrate my birthday with my friends.
I need to admit, we weren't really fussed where we were staying because we were only using the hotel as somewhere to sleep.
However, I would like to recommend this hotel as the perfect place to stay if you visit Newcastle.
It is located within 2 miles of Newcastle Central Station, the price is fairly reasonable, and the quality of the rooms are excellent.
The staff where very friendly, helped me without any issues. The bedroom was very clean, the bed itself was very comfortable. The room was very spacious and the bathroom was a fairly big size as well.
All in all it was one of my most enjoyable hotel experiences of recent.

We ate in the restaurant in the evening and in the morning for breakfast. Both meals were very good with excellent service .
Would definitely stay here again.

We regularly go to the theatre in Newcastle and the Holiday Inn Jesmond is very well located for that; add to that very stylish décor and friendly and helpful staff (and what must be the best pizza we have!) - it all adds up to a great place to stay. We will be back (again)!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robin 1001 Another good visit
Although not the cheapest hotel in the area, the Holiday Inn continues to meet our expectations. Rooms are clean and tidy. We even got the air conditioning working right this time. Restaurant and bar facilities are very good. The only problem is the poor selection of proper beer. Staff are helpful.
The hotel is conveniently located close to a metro station and car parking is currently free. Highly recommended.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by oscart Great Bed!
Good location if arriving by train - just a couple of minutes from Jesmond Metro station. Receptionist very helpful and gave us choice of double room on top floor, or exec room on 2nd floor. Couldn't resist the super king bed, even though the room was near the lift. I had asked for a room at the back of the hotel, as the rooms at the front are right on the busy road. Good blackout curtains and extremely comfy bed aided a very good night's sleep. Bathroom was quite small, but everything in good working order and a good shower.
Didn't have evening meal at hotel. Breakfast was pretty average. Plenty of choice, but as there were not many guests in (midweek) the cooked food was not very hot and the eggs had been stood too long (however, I guess if I had asked they may have cooked me some fresh ones). There was no menu on the table, but I presume if I had asked there would have been other choices.
Would definitely stay again. Easy access to city and you can purchase a Day Rover which allows for travel as far as the coast. Enjoyed a pleasant day in Tynemouth.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lommis Could have been better
Check in was slow and we were misdirected to our room. The room itself was difficult to access with heavy luggage down 2 half flights of stairs.
The room was very dark and poorly lit and lacked a full length mirror. The bathroom had no light to illuminate the mirror.
The breakfast. Selection was poor in comparison with other HI hotels and the staff seemed reluctant to break away from their conversations to clear tables and refill coffee cups.
It wasn't a bad stay but with a little more attention to details it could have been better.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beanz What a shambles
I have stayed at this hotel several times now, trust me if I had a choice I would stay somewhere else. I have never had a room that didn't have some kind of problem. The latest disaster was the shower wasn't working, I was hoping to shower & change for an important dinner meeting & the shower control was stuck. I was offered another room which I did accept, however it was a hassle having to repack my bags & move, not the relaxing time I had hoped for after a 4 hour drive, Why oh why doesn't somebody at the hotel take responsibility for checking the rooms BEFORE they put guests in them. I have had rooms with no heating, no water, no internet, no lock I could go on, but I doubt it will make any difference!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BeaNich Exactly what I needed
My only complaint was difficulty finding my room and access to lift to get there but the room itself was excellent although it took me an age to find the temperature controls (and never located the hairdryer!). Bed really comfortable - bathroom well appointed - sound from outside well muted.
Staff all very pleasant

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jozsef31 Every Saturday full of drunk people
I have stayed 24 nights in this hotel.
Rooms are a bit small, walls thin, you can hear your neighbour talking. Breakfast average, nothing special. Hotel staff kind and helpful. Great location, Metro 3 min walk, downtown 10-15 min walk.
I will stay in the same hotel next time, but I will ask a room in the calm side of the hotel, as every saturday night, some or many people came back from bars, and I could not have rest, as they were shouting, laughing so loud. Hotel staff could hardly handle them, so had some nights missing 2-3 hrs of sleep. At check out they offered 500 extra points. Just not worth the time to fill any paper. Anyway, weekdays ok.

We recently stayed at this hotel overnight which was near a hospital I had an appointment with. The hotel was very clean and comfortable with a vey good Italian restaurant within the hotel. All the staff were very proffesional with a very pleasant manner.
The overnight stay with breakfast was good value for money but I did think the Italian restaurant was over priced for some dishes

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anna76 Enjoyable stay
Staff very welcoming and good at solving problems. Our room went cold on the second night, and I should have rung reception immediately instead of grinning and bearing it, as it was sorted out immediately when I did say something. Very good service altogether. Note - you should not turn right into the hotel when coming from the coast road, nor right out of it going towards town. We didn't realise at first, but there is a restriction. Just go left and find a roundabout.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Freelander Christmas Party Night
We booked this as part of a Christmas Party night with some of the guests staying over in the hotel. The party function itself was fantastic. The function room was very good and the meal was perfect with all the staff being helpful and friendly. I could certainly recommend this hotel for a function.
As for the bedrooms, I can only comment on ours. The room was a good size, very clean and a pleasant temperature. All the usual facilities were there and working. Even though there were other functions going on, our bedroom was very quiet and we had an excellent nights sleep.
I have only two minor criticisms of the room. Firstly the shower was more of a drizzle, and secondly my wife was disappointed with the lighting. Apparently it is very poor for putting on makeup (ladies reading this will understand).
Breakfast was good and plenty of it, but one or two of the staff were grumpy and unpleasant.
That aside I would still recommend this hotel for anyone visiting Newcastle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable bed, modern room and good sleep
A hidden Holiday Inn in the Jesmond area of Newcastle which balanced the needs of it's party goers with those of it's guests. Great sized executive room, modern decoration, excellent breakfast with real coffee and a fab, exceedingly clean, en-suite. One minor issue was that the car parking was a 'free for all' -it needs to be barrier entry and thus, controlled.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Megrab Not ideal for extended stay
I have spent 3 weeks in Holiday Inn Jesmond. It is a nice place to stay for a short period but after a while little things can get really annoying.
I heard the music from downstairs each day in my room. That meant no sleep until midnight on weekends and other days when any event was organized.
The fridge was slightly broken, the lights didn't go off when its door was closed which also didn't help too much to have a good sleep neither. The solution was to switch it off.
In the Bathroom there was no sufficient lights for shaving, I saw dark shadows on my face in the mirror, so I did not really see what I am doing. I believe the same don't help women neither when doing makeup.
The staff, the breakfast and the services were nice but those didn't compensate for the inconvenience of the room.
It is still ok for a short stay (3-4 days) but can be very inconvenient over an extended period of time. Maybe other rooms on higher floors are better.
