Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amyh22 Excellent hotel
I stayed in this hotel the night before an interview. The price was good and included breakfast so it was well worth the money. There was a lot of choice at breakfast - my only problem was I couldn't take full advantage of it due to interview nerves! The location is great for the centre of Newcastle and just a 5 min walk from the station. The room was clean and comfortable as was the bathroom - would have liked to have a bath but not a major issue as the shower was good. Overall a pleasant stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Viv76 Excellent location
We had a double room with a sofa bed which was spacious and comfortable. Check-in was swift and we were given information about parking and also offered change for the car park. Breakfast was fine and you could have as much as you wanted.
Ideally situated for strolling into Newcastle where there are plenty of places to eat.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobH65 An ideal place to stay.
The Holiday Inn Express in Waterloo Square helped to make our visit to Newcastle extremely enjoyable. Its location in the centre of town made it very convenient for the train station, the shops, restaurants, the riverside walks and other places of interest.
Our room was very clean and freshly decorated and the beds were extremely comfortable. Room temperature was easy to adjust and hot water for showers was constantly available. Add to this the friendly and attentive staff, and you have the ideal venue for a stay in Newcastle.
We will certainly use Holiday Inn Express Newcastle City Centre on our next visit to Newcastle.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AJAY2014 Basic, adequate accommodation.
I have stayed in a couple of IHG hotels (Dubai for 6 months, Mumbai for 5 days, Bangalore for 16 days, lots of others up and down the UK). While I understand that the "Express" brand is a budget type of hotel, I felt that the room I was given was just too basic especially as I am a Platinum Elite Priority Rewards member. No special consideration or service was given and I thought that was something that IHG prides itself on. Anyway, staff were un-interested at best - maybe slightly perturbed or angry that I even asked for an upgraded room (it should be automatic given my Priority Rewards status). If I didn't get free Wi-Fi and breakfast, it would have been so much worse. Anyway, I won't be staying here again - especially after paying the rates that they charge for a budget hotel.

Standard chain hotel - could not fault and will use happily use again on a business trip - would not recommend for much longer than an overnight stay though due to lack of space to store personal stuff
