Those in the northeast for work have also enjoyed the exclusive access to professional business centres commonly offered by hotels in Hotwire’s 3* collection. According guests close proximity to the neighbouring city of Newcastle, this hotel is also just a stone’s throw from the MetroCentre, the Sage Centre and the BALTIC Centre of Contemporary Art.
Although often overlooked in favour of Newcastle which sits on the opposite bank of the River Tyne, Gateshead has an abundance of things to do and see for enthusiastic city breakers. This hotel is especially well positioned for those who wish to spend a day indulging in some retail therapy at the UK’s largest shopping mall, MetroCentre. Featuring over 340 of the nation’s favourite high street retailers and a variety of upmarket department stores, MetroCentre is the ultimate one-stop shopping and leisure destination. Families with young children will also love the adjacent MetroCentre Qube complex which houses an Odeon multiplex cinema with IMAX screen, Namco Funscape indoor amusement arcade and an 18 lane bowling alley. Easily accessible via numerous dedicated bus routes, its own train station and the A1 main road, hotel guests have no excuse not to check out all that the MetroCentre has to offer.
Some of Gateshead’s most popular cultural landmarks are located further along the river, close to the impressive Millennium and Tyne Bridges. The remarkable futuristic architecture of the Sage Centre is hard to miss. Running regular performances and concerts, an evening show at the Sage is a must for music lovers. Also part of the pretty quayside development is the BALTIC Centre of Contemporary Art, which is housed picturesquely in a former flour mill.
Hotel guests are encouraged to take a trip across the Tyne to the vibrant metropolis of Newcastle. Credited with boasting some of the best nightlife in Europe, Newcastle’s choice of upmarket bars and clubs is second to none.
