We have just returned from a 4 night stay in the Sandman Signature Hotel. We stayed in a suite so the room was situated between floors. As a result we found it very quiet which was great. the room was well equipped with a nice bathroom a large bed and a full kitchen and lounge. It had everything you could need for a stay. The only slight downfall was a little lack of storage for clothing in the bedroom with only a small wardrobe and 2 small drawers fro clothes. It was very close to the main shopping centre with only a 5 to 10 minute walk. The reception staff were friendly and very helpfull providing us a map of the area and some useful information. It was our 25th anniversary and a bottle of preseco had been left in the room with a card which was a lovely touch. The only downside with the hotel was the bar. This essentially is a full sports bar , not surprising really as we were directly opposite the Newcastle Football stadium . We found each night if you wanted food the staff went out of their way to look after you with a number of girls looking after the tables ONLY. However if just sat at the bar for a drink you were almost ignored. Only one member of staff was working behind the bar on 3 of the 4 nights we were there and as such people waited too long for a drink. On the last night after waiting 20 minutes without service we actually left and went to a local pub for a drink and on to a local restaurant for food rather than staying at the hotel. It was a shame that this let the stay down a little. Breakfast was however good with a full self service buffet. The tea was a little stewed from the urns provided. Overall we enjoyed the stay and would use the hotel again but would probably avoid the bar altogether in the evenings
