The Sandman Signature Newcastle Hotel is in the city centre -- opposite St James' Park and within 20 minutes' walk of the Tyne Bridge, the Theatre Royal and Grainger Town, the city's shopping district, which is full of listed Georgian and Victorian buildings.

Lonely Planet says, "against its dramatic backdrop of Victorian elegance and industrial grit" Newcastle "harbours a spirited mix of heritage and urban sophistication". The Sandman Signature Newcastle Hotel occupies the former headquarters of the Scottish & Newcastle Breweries, and the company's logo -- a blue star -- still shines from the top of the hotel.

The hotel is well located for exploring the city by night: Grey Street, Chinatown, Eldon Square and The Quayside are all within a 10 minutes' walk.

All rooms have walk-in rain shower, with the exception of Executive King Suites, which has a bath tub with a shower. Executive King Suites also has its own private balcony. The King Rooms have a small fridge and a microwave, while higher room categories have a fridge, a microwave, a hob, a kettle, a toaster, a sink and dishes. There is a shop next door where you can buy essentials. Wi-Fi is free and there's a small gym on the top floor.

The hotel's Shark Club Gastro Bar, which has 32 televisions, is open until 12am on Sunday nights, 1am on Monday-Thursday nights and 2am on Friday and Saturday nights. It's popular with guests and locals, and serves pub grub including burgers, chicken wings, steaks and curries.

We recommend that you ask for a room on a higher floor if you are concerned about noise (particularly on a match day).

Nothing wrong with the actual hotel, it was just not the right hotel for us. We both felt that it was triumph of style over practicality, looked good but not a practical proposition.

Location but that's it unfortunately

Room not ready at checking in time(15.00) I am disabled and had timed my journey too arrive at 15.00 so I could go to the room and take my medication. I didn't get access until 16.00. When we did finally get to our room it was tired and dated and could have done with a much better clean.

Lovely big room, the only downside was that we were on the 10th floor and only one lift was working do we had to wait for the lift a few times.

Nice reception area and great staff, especially Kathleen in housekeeping who promptly mailed my forgotten iPad back to me and the breakfast waitress who made me a fresh pot of tea as the tea in the urn is not good.

Hated the glass doors in our room, noisy and unwieldy

Not particularly
Other Comments
Breakfast was served in a scruffy sports bar, which was not clean and certainly not up to 4 star level. Also, although we had a "junior suite" which had an unnecessary washing machine, dishwasher, full kitchen, it did not have a coffee machine or even a cafeteire to brew some fresh coffee. The machine in the reception area was not working for the duration of our stay
