Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Contrary Clean tidy with great service
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.

Nice room, it is worth upgrading to a club room for the extra space and comfort.
Clean rooms, pleasant friendly staff.
Stay on a regular basis.

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.

Again we (my wife and myself) stayed at the Holiday inn Jesmond
and as usual the stay was everything we expected. We have been visiting this hotel since Holiday inn took over from the previous owners. Although we are not "long term stayers" in a hotel, we have been going for two weekends per year, usually March and November, for years. The quality and cleanliness of the hotel is second to none. The friendliness and respect shown by the staff are to be commended. Although we did not dine in the restaurant in the evening we had breakfast in the morning. The food was very good and suited my appetite, the dining room staff were very efficient and tended to us quickly and courteously. In short the Holiday Inn Jesmond is to be congratulated and I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone.

Stayed Saturday and Sunday 16/17 November 2013 much better than a premiere inn but then again cost mire. That said you get what you pay for. Good food and nice rooms. I was very happy with it. And from there you can walk into the city centre. Will stay again for sure.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gwyr Very convenient hotel for city centre
The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and the bed very comfortable. The room was a little on the small size but adequate for our stay as we didn't need to be in the room very much. It had a good sized television and complimentary tea ,coffee, hot chocolate, orange juice and water as well as biscuits. I had difficulty using the heating system and the lighting was poor particularly in the area of the wardrobe and drink making shelf.

Well appointed comfortable bedroom which the hotel let me check-into 2 hours early. There was a great, friendly atmosphere in the bar - champions league night - and the food in the Italian restaurant was excellent. I will certainly be back.

As ever, the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. We enjoyed a pre-theatre pizza (both of which were truly delicious). In our view this is the most stylish of the Holiday Inns we use. We will be back (again)!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jojo2000 Pleasant surprise
This was a holiday inn above the rest. Excellent room facilities with complimentary mini bar selection. Room cosy and comfortable and of high standard. It was a pleasure to retreat back to the hotel when the weather was too bad to sight see. Perfect for a weekend away price wise, with added bonus of easy access parking - complimentary of course!
Next visit to Newcastle I will be back.

The expectations for our one night Saturday stay were far exceeded by the easy secure parking, good sized room and peaceful night.
Staff were friendly and helpful. Easy access to city centre with an approximate 10 minute walk with easy access to Metro for the less athletic!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shamut My favourite HI (but improve the internet please)
Great hotel, close to both town and airport, great beds, friendly staff, v.clean, nice (although neverchanging) big breakfast. Close to big parks if you like jogging. Sweets and coffee in the room. Seems much nicer/fresher/roomier than other Holday Inns (from my limited experience).
Acceptable restaurant for dinner, GREAT BURGER at ZIO.
But please guys, seriously, do sth about your internet. It is free (NICE) and everywhere in the hotel, but why do you have to put the password so many times and why is it SO SLOW? I know about the limited speed of free internet but in reality it is worse than that. Ok for facebook and reading news but you'll have hard time listening to music etc.

The in room wifi is so slow as to be unusable.
It makes working impossible.
The paypal alternative is not mentioned by staff or on the website. It seems strange that a platinum guest needs to open a paypal account and they pay extra to use a service that the advertisement leads to the mistaken belief is free.
