Neville Street, NE1 5DH
Once you step through the doors of the Royal Station Hotel, you step into a timeless space of sweeping staircases and sparkling chandeliers.
This landmark 19th century hotel actually had its ribbon cut by Queen Victoria and is ideally placed for exploring city highlights like Newcastle Cathedral, the Discovery Museum and the Tyne Bridge. Yet despite its heritage, it is also a thoroughly contemporary getaway with a hip, buzzing cocktail bar and up-to-date accommodations.
The hotel’s premium leisure space features a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and high-tech fitness suite.
All guest rooms offer free WiFi, satellite TV, complimentary toiletries and tea & coffee making facilities. If you want to get cosy, then you can also order room service. Superior rooms are more spacious, plus have extra touches like a mini fridge and robe & slippers.
The atmospheric, classically decorated Empire Restaurant serves up a range of unpretentious British and global cuisine.
Sample dishes include ham hock & pea terrine, butter chicken masala and classic vanilla creme brulee with shortbread, as well as grill items like the 10z ribeye steak. Sunday lunch is also served in the restaurant, while afternoon tea is offered in the lounge area’s cosy booths.
After dining, you could relax with a cocktail in the hotel’s shimmering, neon-lit Jalou bar & terrace, which features some of the city’s most celebrated DJs playing hip hop, urban dance hall and R&B.
The central location of Royal Station Hotel makes it easy to explore this vibrant Northern city, including the nearby Medieval cathedral. You can also splurge out at massive shopping centres like intu Eldon Square and Gateshead, or be a culture vulture at the Discovery Museum, Laing Art Gallery and Great North Museum: Hancock.
The city’s Town Moor offers an even bigger green stretch of green than New York’s Central Park and is perfect for a picnic. If you’re feeling active, you can also walk along a segment of the Hadrian’s Wall Path, which stretches for an incredible 84 miles from the city into the countryside. And to see a whole other side of Newcastle’s history, why not go on a spooky Victoria Tunnel tour?
