Situated directly opposite Newcastle Central Rail Station and in the heart of the city, The County Hotel is the perfect location whether you are visiting for business or leisure.
The Grade 2 listed hotel has been welcoming visitors to Newcastle for well over a century and prides itself on providing friendly and genuine service to its guests. For many visitors, the hotel is the first image of Newcastle upon leaving the train station. Its historic exterior, bristling with Italianate style columns, cornices and gothic pilasters, is counter balanced with the hotel interior which abounds in warm tones and soft lighting perfectly complimented with the friendly ‘Geordie’ welcome from the hotel team.
As well as having the main line rail station on its door step offering direct services to London, Manchester, Birmingham, Scotland and beyond, The County Hotel also benefits from having a Metro Station adjacent. This brings the coast, the surrounding business districts, Newcastle International Airport and leisure attractions within a short journey from the hotel.
