Crowne Plaza Newcastle, Hawthorn Square, Forth Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 3SA – Visit Now
Situated behind central station in the Stephenson Quarter you will be able to find the Crowne Plaza hotel. The Stephenson quarter is named after George and Robert Stephenson, the famous father and son inventors who built the Rocket steam engine and designed many of Britain’s railways. In fact, the land where the Crowne Plaza is built is the site of the workshops where the famous Rocket Steam engine was built along with many other early British steam engines.
This has now become an area for leisure, with the Boiler Shop venue being a popular destination for nights out and music. Despite being built on old industrial land, the Crowne Plaza quite accurately describes itself as a ‘luxurious’. The modern interiors of the rooms and public areas provide a stylish and comfortable stay within walking distance of the city centre.

From your room you’ll be able to enjoy views of the Newcastle skyline, or the River Tyne and its bridges, bringing Newcastle’s unique architectural feel into your room. The hotel is well connected to the rest of the city and easily accessible. Travel by car and rail is also straightforward with Central Station and the A1 both within ten minutes of the hotel.
Once you are settled in at the Crowne Plaza, you can rest and relax with the internal spa, gym and swimming pool, which promise a restful and rejuvenating experience after any day out, whether that’s a shopping trip, cultural tour, or a day’s walking in Northumberland. Or, indeed, a high-stakes business meeting.
Just around the corner from the Crowne Plaza is Sachins restaurant, but if you do not wish to leave the hotel, their Hawthorns restaurant, again named after industrial works on the same site, provides wonderful all-day food from breakfasts to evening meals. For a pleasurable stay in Newcastle city centre, the Crowne Plaza is a solid choice.
