Sandman Signature Newcastle Hotel, Gallowgate, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 4SD
While the 4-star Sandman Signature Newcastle Hotel (4Q) might be elegant and modern, it embraces its place in the historic fabric of the city. The hotel is located in the former regional office building of the Scottish & Newcastle Brewery on the site of the iconic brewery itself. Brewing since 1868 and established in 1927, the Newcastle Brewery employed generations of locals, with its Brown Ale achieving cult-like status as the post-work tipple of choice for those living and working in the ‘toon.’ With a nod to this heritage, the hotel display an illuminated blue star near the roof in homage to the brand.
There are 170 bedrooms and suites at the hotel. Each has a flat-screen television, telephone, hairdryer, safe, iron and ironing board, tea and coffee-making facilities. Superior rooms are available for a supplement, subject to availability – please call for details.

The Sandman Signature Hotel is just across the road from St James’ Park – the iconic home ground of Premier League football club Newcastle United – and mere steps from the underground station which carries the footballing mecca’s name. The Metro system is a great way to get around the city and extends as far as the international airport to the north west, the coastal resort of Whitley Bay to the north east, and south across the Tyne to Gateshead and then Sunderland beyond. The array of shops, both chain and independent, in Eldon Square and Northumberland Street are just a few minutes away on foot while Europe’s largest indoor shopping mall, the Intu MetroCentre, is around four miles away but can be accessed by car, taxi or public transport. No trip to Newcastle would be complete without a stroll on the quayside, home to the iconic Tyne Bridge and also the sleek Millennium Bridge which links the city to Gateshead and the BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art – the largest in the world – on the opposite bank, just along from the futuristic Sage concert hall which dominates the skyline. The castle and keep which gave the city its name dates back to 1178 and is considered one of the best examples of Norman stonework in Britain. The Theatre Royal is regarded as one of the grandest in the country and is the central attraction of the beautiful Georgian Grey Street, just 10 minutes walk from your hotel. It is one of only nine Grade I listed theatres in the country.
