A recent night’s stay at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead offered a stunning view across the city.
I spend quite a lot of my time in Newcastle, seeing friends, on date nights for food and attending blog events and meetings. With this in mind, I’m no stranger to staying in the city centre whether it’s for a gig so we can go out and have a few drinks afterwards without needing to worry about taxis home, or for a spa weekend. I’d never considered staying at Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, yet I drive past it going across the Tyne Bridge every time I’m heading into the city centre. I guess I always had this misconception that Hilton hotels were expensive, but with so many of them around now and the choice of Hilton, Double Tree, Waldorf Astoria etc. there’s one to suit all budgets!
Staying in one of the Executive Rooms, I had one of the best views of the city. I spent some time in the morning, perched on the windowsill gazing out across the river. Had I been in work mode, the room offered a large desk area where I could keep up to date; great for a business stay. With an executive room you may be eligible for access to the executive lounge, located on the fifth floor. This invite only area is great for enjoying a coffee, or a wine (hey if it’s an evening, I’m not judging) and looking out from a great vantage point. Kath who works in there is an absolute star too.
Offering a pool and spa facilities, bar and restaurant; Hilton Newcastle Gateshead has everything you need for an overnight stay and with one night’s bed and breakfast from £109 it’s really quite affordable. As with everything, book in advance via their website and that extra money can go towards some cocktail sharing boards. Money well spent I would say!
If cocktails aren’t your thing, then I definitely recommend you try something from their grill menu at Windows On The Tyne. The steak I had was perfectly seasoned and well, you know my thoughts on cheeseboards don’t you? Windows On The Tyne open daily offering everything from afternoon tea to dinner and drinks.
I was kindly offered an overnight stay with dinner in exchange for review.
