The latest addition to the Newcastle Quayside, the INNSiDE by Melia is an exciting new hotel with an enviable position right on the banks of the River Tyne, overlooking its spectacular bridges. The iconic setting, eclectic modern interior, luxurious rooms and exceptional food and drink offering make it a perfect choice for those travelling for business or leisure.

    Spain’s largest hotel group, Meliá Hotels International, officially opened INNSiDE Newcastle on 17 May, bringing a slice of continental life to the heart of the city.

    The Hotel


    Located in the heart of the Quayside, the 161-room hotel has an ideal setting, giving guests easy access to the area’s restaurants, bars, cafes and cultural venues, while also being just a five-minute stroll from city centre shopping and Newcastle Central Station.

    The hotel has lots of stylish touches throughout. They worked with local illustrator James Dixon of Lines Behind to develop a Newcastle-inspired mural, which you’ll see across the hotel’s interior, staff uniforms and in merchandise that you can purchase as a reminder of your stay.


    There’s also local artwork, supplied by a North East-based gallery, displayed around the hotel. And quirky touches, like a large post-apocalyptic wall mural by local gaming design agency Atomhawk, create a really unique atmosphere at the hotel, with the local community threaded throughout.

    Meeting room

    INNSiDE also offers on-site car parking, a 24-hour fitness room packed with state-of-the-art gym equipment and a variety of meeting rooms, including cosy and informal spaces ideal for a team day, where you can write on the (wipeable) walls!

    Importantly, in a city that is famed for its friendliness, the staff at INNSiDE are second-to-none, offering exceptional service where nothing is too much trouble.

    The Rooms


    Many of the hotel’s 161 bedrooms feature stunning views over the River Tyne, with floor to ceiling windows giving visitors the some of the best views the city offers. Rooms options include double and twin rooms; river view rooms; balcony rooms from which you can take in the best views of the Toon from your own private balcony; studios which are a home-from-home with double sofa beds as well as king size beds, and the Townhouse is a 50m2 suite with separate living space, giving so much space to relax and unwind.

    View from room

    The rooms include complimentary mineral water, mini-fridge, air-conditioning and stylish bathrooms with rain showers. Quirky features like retro-style telephones and speakers, plus yoga mats in each room, are all thoughtful touches.

    What’s more, demonstrating INNSiDE by Meliá’s commitment to sustainability, single-use paper and plastic have been eliminated throughout the hotel, with sustainable amenities available in all rooms, along with 100% eco-friendly bedlinens and towels.

    Food and Drink


    As part of a new collaboration between INNSiDE by Meliá and famous chef Gino D’Acampo, Newcastle is only the second location to launch the new Gino D’Acampo restaurant and bar.

    Guests and visitors alike can enjoy an exclusive dining experience at Gino D’Acampo Quayside, with amazing views over the River Tyne, or can choose to sit outside in the beautiful riverside terrace.


    The mouth-watering menu caters for all tastes, with sharing platters, pizza, pasta, grills and delicious main courses on the menu, as well as a highly tempting dessert menu! The restaurant also caters well for allergies with extensive alternative menus.


    Alongside the restaurant, The Open Living Lounge acts as the beating heart of the hotel, with the open plan lobby offering the ideal transitional space to allow guests skip seamlessly from work to play. It serves food throughout the day with local DJs providing the perfect soundtrack for guests.


    The breakfast options at INNSiDE are extensive, with hot and cold options available – you can create a full English, or opt for a continental approach with cold meats and cheese, and even smoked salmon. The well-presented breakfast also includes granola pots, pastries and cereal – what more could you need!

    Overall, INNSiDE Newcastle makes a fantastic addition to our Quayside, where guests can expect a high-quality, unforgettable stay.

    Our overnight stay at INNSiDE was gifted as part of its planned launch activity.
