Heating not working in the room, given electric panel heater. Thin walls and creeky floors. Main floor was well looked after but rooms need updating. Nice big comfortable king bed

Superb location for O2 academy

The County Hotel and the O2 Academy are very close to the main Newcastle train station which was extremely handy as we travelled by train to attend a rock concert at the O2. We stayed only the one night but we found The County excellent value and clean - ideal for our needs. I would certainly use the County again.

Never judge a book by its cover

Great looking hotel and staff were pleasant on arrival , went to room yes ok it was a small double which I wouldn't recommended for two people but compared to the rest of the hotel entrance ways it was totally different , paint flaking of skirtings , carrier bag over the fire alarm , fag burns in the net curtain , nothing to see out of the window . as going into the bathroom it is very small you can't shut the door unless you tuck behind toilet , so most of time you don't bother , there was always hot water when needed to wash , bathroom could have been remasticked so you don't see the dirt . As for the food it was of a good standard , but not all staff were trained into what was actually entitled to with the half bird deal , some would say all different things so training needs to be done one this or something printed on counter to stop confusion , restaurant was never busy and sometimes had to wait at the counter for a table whilst all restaurant staff were talking to each over behind the chef counter . Good selection of food at breakfast , but evening meal not much choice on menu if staying more than a couple of nights , and the soup of the day changed twice in my five day stay
