Having stayed here before we were shocked by the state of the hotel. Its run down,TV in room doesn't work, towel heater cable and air con cable cut so can't use. No hot water throughout the stay. Reception claimed 5 plumbers had been called but have my doubts.I know the industry has been hit hard but hot water is a basic need. Staff were friendly but were embarrassed when responding to the no hot water.

We had booked the hotel when I got a ballot place in the Great North Run, it was a panic buy because rooms were selling quickly but we’d stayed here a couple of years ago when it was a Premier Inn and it was a nice hotel (then). As we weren’t expecting anything to go wrong we didn’t book a flexible room so consequently when the GNR was cancelled we couldn’t do anything about our room. The hotel was SO disappointing. The good point is that the location is great, right near the centre. The room was okay but like the whole hotel very tired and desperate for a refurb. Carpets are shabby, walls need a lick of paint, lift needs new floor covering and the place had an unattractive smell. We paid a lot for our room because of when we booked it but there was no restaurant or bar. Also, they had the audacity to charge a “damage deposit”!! It will be interesting to see how long it takes to get that back. Will never stay at this place again. Avoid unless you want to be really near the centre of town and don’t care about eating and drinking at your hotel.

We were booked to stay here for 1 night, we had been before but a couple of years ago when it was a Premier Inn. On check in there was only 1 member of staff, all the rest still furloughed. We went to our room and immediately returned to reception and asked if we could look at another... this unfortunately was no different. They were not fit for any guest. We advised we wanted to check out. At this point no attempt was made to resolve this by offering a 'better' room (which after a lengthy discussion with Dan he informs me there is a room which he sometimes uses that we could have been offered!!) We asked about a refund and were told to contact who the booking agent. So off we went to find somewhere else to stay. This hotel should be closed for a deep clean. It seems to us that nothing has been done since the hotel reopened. Given the current situation all the more reason to keep the hotel/rooms immaculate. * There was so much dust/dirt round the edges of the carpets all round the skirting boards, you could scrape it up with your shoe. It appeared no hoovering had been done since lockdown. * Massive cobweb (with spider) next to the bed in the corner against the skirting board. * The air conditioning/heating unit was disgusting… covered in dust, dirt and cobwebs. * Smell in the room. * The stairs in reception are filthy, they look as if they have never been cleaned/hoovered. * The flooring in the lift is dangerous. * Graffiti on the outside of the hotel. We travel a lot in the UK and abroad and have stayed in many hotels but this is the first time we have checked out without staying !! We have asked for a refund and were offered a nights stay 'to make amends' which we obviously declined. The refund has been refused. I emailed my complaint and informed Dan that I would be putting a bad review on here, in return he replied 'Now that you have threatened us with posting a damaging review on TripAdvisor. I regret to inform you that I must withdraw my offer and that anything we offer you from this point on would be seen as blackmail' Hmmm I had already turned down the offer of this!!! Since returning we have established the hotel is owned by Gainford Hotels which also owns the County and the Vermont in the city. We have stayed in the Vermont a couple of times and what a difference. What is this company doing being associated with the Newbridge? We do wonder!!

I used to stay at this hotel when it was a Premier Inn for business. First stay since it has changed hands. What an absolute dump the hotel is now. Reception area, corridors, lift are in desperate need of a lick of paint and a good clean. I didn't pay a lot for my room but you do expect it to be clean. The carpet looked like it hadn't seen a vacuum for month's, the dust above the bed and on the air-conditioning unit was about an inch thick. The family of spiders living by the side of the bed looked like they'd been in situ for many a week. In these very uncertain times when cleanliness is paramount the hotel management obviously missed the memo.My advice, stear well clear of the flea pit.

Firstly I have to say I booked this earlier in the year for a concert and all room in Newcastle the rates had shot up and this was at a good price. Due to Covid I had to rebook for September as the concert was cancelled. On arriving the outlook isn’t great and check in is ok staff are friendly. The room is basic and clean. Would I stay here again probably not but for what I paid and the price the rooms usually go for it is a fair price for what you get. Basic and clean and central to the city.
