One of the nicest hotels in the city, the Copthorne oozes class from when you walk into the massive, valuted-ceiling atrium.
We stayed in a "Club" room on the top floor which gave us a great view over the river. The swimming pool has a waterfall cascading into it at one end (pretty, if a bit noisy) and is at ground level overlooking the quayside.
The five-course behemoth meal we ate in the restaurant was supreme. It''s one of the best I''ve had, and certainly the best in Newcastle. The staff, both in reception and the restaurant, were courteous and friendly during our whole stay.
In summary - luxury at a price!
