Relaxing 3 days.
Visiting Newcastle for business/leisure, so chose this hotel for proximity to business location, but the short walk to light rail interchange made it easy to explore the City and nearby beaches when
time permitted. Our king bed room was comfortable, spotlessly clean with a glimpse of the harbour. Being a new hotel, everything felt fresh and up to date. Breakfast was excellent, limited lunch and dinner options were available, but with so many cafes restaurants in Newcastle we explored further afield. The success of this very new hotel though for us is led by the staff. Each and every person we encountered were professional, warm, and always happy to assist in any way. Particular mention of Erin DutyMgr, and Linda on reception, whose warm welcome and farewell, bought a warmth to what could otherwise be just another business hotel. No ocean views for holidaymakers here, but for our first stay at a Holiday Inn Express Hotel, it has more than delivered on our expectations. Thanks everyone. [Less]
