(3 star hotel)
from the airport
Premier Inns are known for offering outstanding value, and you certainly get your money's worth at the Premier Inn Newcastle airport. This fresh and friendly accommodation is just a four-minute walk from the terminal and although it might not be bursting with facilities, the free wifi access, free overnight parking and 32-inch Freeview TVs in all rooms are welcome substitutes.
If you've chosen the Premier Inn because you're on a budget Thyme restaurant and bar, the heart of the hotel, will be right up your street. Its lively ambience makes it the perfect place to swing your holiday in the right direction but its money-saving dinner and breakfast package is the thing we think you'll find more attractive: enjoy three courses with a glass of wine, a beer or a soft drink, and wake up to an all-you-can-eat Premier Breakfast for just £22.
Your stay at the Premier Inn can become even better value if you combine it with secured parking at Airparks Newcastle. A hotel with parking package costs little more than an overnight stay on its own so if you're planning on driving to the airport, it could be a wise move.
We recommend the Premier Inn Newcastle Airport for:
A good night's sleep - Hypnos beds, blackout curtains, triple glazing and choose-your-own pillows. The only way you'd get a better head-start to a decent night's kip would be to take a sleeping pill..
An easy start to your holiday - the Premier Inn Newcastle is a four-minute stroll from the terminal, so you can roll out of bed and rock up at the airport in no time.
Families - when family rooms cost no extra, it's obvious that this hotel's going to be a popular choice. The bar and restaurant offers a family-friendly atmosphere, and kids can tuck into a free breakfast in the morning.
Arrival at the Premier Inn
You can check in from 2pm. You should bring a copy of your booking confirmation with you.
Here are your directions to the hotel:
Take the A1, then the A696 and follow signs for the airport. At the roundabout take the fourth exit - the one immediately after the road leading to the terminal.
If you're not driving, you can get the Metro from Newcastle Central station to the airport.

Premier prices, premier position
Premier parking: Drop your car off at Airparks on the way to the airport. They'll park your car in their secured car park, where it will stay until you return. Meanwhile, you'll be on the way to the hotel in the free transfer bus.
Premier eats: After checking into your super-comfy room, head down to the Thyme Restaurant, where you'll find a host of family favourites on the menu. As you'd expect from a Premier Inn, it is all at very reasonable prices.
Premier sleeps: When it's time to hit the hay, there are triple-glazed windows, blackout blinds, cosy beds and a choice of firm and soft pillows to help you on your way.
Premier start: So after that refreshing night's sleep it's time to start your holiday. The hotel's just a four-minute walk from the airport check-in desks.
Returning to the Premier Inn
