Sports fans can visit nearby St James’ Park and music lovers can enjoy concerts at the Sage Gateshead Hall, both within walking distance of the hotel.
During construction great care was taken to preserve some of the old brick walls to retain the original building’s charm. Motel One Newcastle has taken its design inspiration from old industrial charm blended with stylish modernism. This is showcased by the carefully conserved old brick walls contrasting beautifully with sparkling chandeliers and the reception’s black and white stripes of Newcastle United Football Club.
The hotel’s One Lounge breakfast area d�cor has been inspired by the iconic seven bridges over the Tyne. In the bar the decor is influenced by Robert Stephenson’s invention, the steam train Rocket. Signposts similar to those found within Newcastle city centre are found in the lounge, creating a real sense of identity between the city and the hotel. Comfy Italian leather furniture provides the perfect place to relax with a special selection of single malt or gin and tonic after a busy day in the city.
Rooms located in the carefully preserved and renovated historical part of the building showcase a modern style blended with velvet curtains and beautifully detailed wallpaper, perfectly combining the old and the new. Rooms in the newly built section of the hotel are designed in the contemporary Motel One style. All rooms guarantee sweet dreams with 100% Egyptian cotton bed linen.
The bathrooms are all elegantly fitted with granite and glass Dornbracht washbasin fittings, as well as a monsoon rain shower.
Complemented with exclusive Artemide Tolomeo lighting and LOEWE flat screen TV, each room provides a peaceful escape from the city outside. Clever functional design ensures there is plenty of storage space.
