Four-star Hotel Indigo makes the perfect bolthole for a weekend in Newcastle, whether you're here on a business trip, seeing family or exploring the city's famous nightlife. Its location couldn't be more convenient, between Central Station and the bustling Grainger Town area, known as much for its impressive historic buildings as for its independent shops, restaurants and venues. The hotel's décor incorporates some of the city's most iconic sights, and features the work of local artists. Between the comfortable rooms (many with balconies), laidback restaurant and bar and convenient facilities like a small 24-hour gym, you have everything you need for a relaxing stay. The highlight, though, is the service - the staff are helpful and professional, without ever losing the friendly warmth typical of Geordie hospitality.
