    where to stay in Newcastle

    Can anybody tell me of a decent hotel in Newcastle near Wallsend that my family could try in the february half term. Must be clean and not too noisy and serve a decent breakfast. If it has a safe car park that would be great.

    so are we talkining, say Monday to Wed/Thurs, or does it not matter when, as long as its within that week (Feb 16-20)?

    2 Adults
    1 Child

    So re: Rooms., 2 adults 1 child, would see you needing a family is that correct. How much in total (3 nights, are you looking to spend on BnB?) TBH, it should be no more than £100, if that.

    Depending on when you wanna start you visit (ie: Sunday - Tues, Mon - Wed etc)... can i recommend a Wed is included as travel on the Metro System (your main travel whilst you're here), is slighty cheaper on a Wednesday.

    Are you travelling up to N.East via train/coach or are you driving. :thumbsup:

    ]Village Hotel, ]Travelodge at Silverlink, ]Premier Inn Royal Quays are probably the nearest to Wallsend. You'll find the odd B&B in the area, worth checking at ]tripadvisor for reviews though Loads of hotels & B&B's further in the centre of Newcastle, express holiday inn, hilton, premier inn, jurys inn & a couple of travelodges.
    There is the ]Segedunum museum in Wallsend.
    I'd also keep an eye on ]NewcastleGateshead as the date gets nearer, they will update with what is going on at different venues in half term.
