Having read the reviews on Tripadvisor relating to Jurys Inn Newcastle ahead of my one night stay here, I was expecting the absolute worst.
The opposite is what I experienced. This hotel room cost 26 Pounds for the evening and honestly, it did what it said on the box. It was basic, clean and functional. Sure the room was outdated, didn't have an aircon and the shower overflows into the toilet floor as the layout hasn't been planned very well but those aren't massive issues and shouldn't downgrade a hotel down to a 3-star in my view.
The staff were pleasant, the bartender was delightful and they allowed me to work out of their lobby on a reliable WiFi network while I waited for my train. Can't fault them.
Simple reality is: if you're looking for a 5-star room, fork out more money and go to a 5-stat hotel. If you're looking to stay one or two nights at 25-30 pounds a night, book a room here.More
