I absolutely love this place and can't believe it's taken me until now to review it. This basically my home away from home. I moved away from newcastle in 2009 and always stay here when I return for a weekend. Location - Osborne Road. Probably one of the most famous roads in Newcastle with all the nice bars and shops....

I live in London but am working in Newcastle for the foreseeable. I picked an aparthotel as I typically shun hotels due to their lack of in-room facilities. This place has *everything* I have at home - bar a Nespresso machine (hint!) and I rent week by week as travelling to London & back is about the same price as...

I booked 4 apartments here for my friends hen party and we were very happy with everything. From the first phone call to checking out, everything was absolutely great! The apartments were all beautiful and equipped with everything we needed. Housekeeping and reception were so good and helpful throughout. All guests were thrilled! Great location and parking on site too....

The apartment was well maintained, well supplied with crockery, cutlery etc. and clean with plenty of complimentary goods on arrival, such as milk, water, cereals, tea and coffee, which was unexpected, but a nice surprise and touch. Anything used was replaced when the room was serviced. Good bed and quality linen, duvet and pillows. It was also lovely and warm,...

Kensington Apartments is the ideal place to stay - either for business, weekends away, or short term rental. I stayed in the ground floor 2 bedroom/2 bathroom from September to January whilst work was being done in my house. Check in - We were showed around the apartment, and given all the information we needed (how things work, where things...

Incredible interior, but practicality let it down. Fantastic location-based a 15 minute walk/£8 taxi away from the town. Customer service was great, staff helpful and friendly. Drawbacks-no hot shower/bath water. Shower was very stiff to activate, had to call reception for instructions. My party had to bathe in a tub full of kettle water due to 'security' on the water...

This is a perfect place to stay. The units are very conveniently located to both town (3 blocks) and the metro station (3 blocks). The 24 hour staff is very helpful. And the rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable.

A good sized apartment which the children had room to play in. Friendly and helpful staff and very well maintained. Interesting decor - black and white stripes... well, I would say that.

“We had to ask for the central heating to be lowered from 25 to 21... but your preference may be the higher temp. You certainly wont be freezing at cold periods in the calendar. ”

“The only thing we'd suggest to improve is a four seat dining table (for family breakfasts) otherwise ideal and in any case it would be perfect for four adults and/or older children. We'll stay again.”
