Loved this place

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing stay here and can recommend it to others. The apartment was spotless and could easily have featured in a home lifestyle magazine. Stayed here for 3 nights, but wish we could have stayed longer. Great location in Newcastle City Centre. Lovely comfy bed so had a perfect nights sleep. A welcome tray with tea's, coffee's and biscuits was nice on arrival after a long drive. The Smart TV in the lounge was also a really good, it meant we could watch NETFLIX in the evening and catch up on some of our favourite Box Sets. I'm also a football fan so having BT Sport was a bonus. Loved this place and will return again soon with my partner.

Only for a short stay of a day or two

  • 2 of 5

This apartment is attractive, clean and centrally located for good transportation options. However, little thought has been given to how the apartment should function for longer stays (I was there for one month). There is no dresser to put items like underwear, socks, jewelry, etc. so those items must stay in your suitcase. Since there is no luggage rack your suitcase remains on the floor. In the bathroom there is no shelf for toothpaste, hairbrush, etc. and no hook to hang clothes. No electric outlet in the bathroom for a hairdryer. The clothes dryer did not work so you can't depend on laundered clothes being dry in the morning. While centrally located the apartment is also in an area for rock concerts and loud late night bar hopping which is not conducive to a good night's sleep. I was given the wrong code number for the building which left me out in the rain and wind waiting for someone to enter or leave the building so I could get in. These are details that do not make for a pleasant stay. However the owner did quickly replace the soiled mattress with a new one and he had the apartment cleaned once each week. That was appreciated.

Excellent Stay at St James Gate

  • 5 of 5

Had an excellent stay at St James Gate. The location was perfect with Newcastle Train Station a few minutes walk. Apartment was well equipped and Wi-Fi was great. Lots of nice restaurants and bars located close by. Stephen was a great host and very accommodating with our requirements. We will be returning.

Had to cancel

  • 3 of 5

When we arrived at the apartment, we could not get in with the code that Stephen had sent us. We called Stephen, and he said he had changed it, but forgot to email the new code to us. As soon as we opened the door to the apartment, we were hit with the smell of smoke. Upon calling Stephen again, he said his cleaning people had told him that the previous renters had not taken very good care of the place and had smoked. I can only guess there was more than one person smoking as the smell was strong.

Stephen did offer a refund, but we had to find another place to stay, and lug our luggage to the hotel I found, we were visiting from out of the country, so no car... We ended up staying at Hotel Indigo, a very lovely hotel. I did have to email a few times due to partial and not full refund, and I still ended up paying the booking fee!

Writing a negative review is not something I would normally do, but I feel this could have been handled more honestly. From my perspective, Stephen should have emailed us immediately with the information his cleaning people had shared. I can only guess he hoped we wouldn't notice, or would just deal with it. And, he should have made sure we had the correct entry key so we weren't standing in the hallway with our luggage. Again, I am guessing he had it changed after the previous tenants checked out, given the state of the apartment.

As for the actual apartment, it is sparse with just the bare minimums. The walls need to be repainted badly. There were several stains on the walls. We have rented houses and apartments from VRBO on several occasions, and this is the first time there was nothing as far as information about the area and a welcome note of some sort. Being tourists, we always appreciate the information the owner shares with us about the area. Again, what is there is very basic; not even tea or coffee in the cabinet.

After leaving Newcastle, we traveled to our VRBO rental in York, which was lovely.

Owner's Response: The guest contacted me upon arriving at the apartment to state they were not happy. As we'd had problems with the previous guest, I allowed them to find alternative accommodation and offered the guest a FULL REFUND. This was actioned straight away by VRBO (Owners Direct) and they have since confirmed the guest was refunded in full. I can also confirm that since this booking, the property has been redecorated throughout and we are in the process of creating a local guide for guests, as well as supplying tea and coffee on arrival. Please also take the time to read our other 5* reviews from previous satisfied guests.

Property was clean and equipped as expected.Quiet building with security.

  • 4 of 5

THis was our first experience renting in Newcastle and were somewhat concerned about the amenities.The owner provided excellent instructions on how to find the location , parking and entrance.The only drawback was the proximaty of parking to the rental.Its a bit of a hike especially if you are carrying shopping.You can park in the courtyard for a brief unloading .

Owner's Response: Hi Ron, Thanks for your review, the secure car park is located directly opposite the development, so its not exactly far away to be honest and as you have already mentioned there is a loading bay right outside the block.
