The space

Recent conversion of Victorian railway offices. Looking over the great Stephenson construction of the High Level Bridge (1847), Newcastle Keep (1172) and St James' Park (1992). It's a wonderful building to feel a part of the exciting city. Close to the famous Quayside, The Sage, Baltic, and City Centre. Just opposite the Hilton.

Guest access

You will be supplied with a building key, flat key and room key. You will have access to the spacious kitchen/living room. Free reign of all cookware. And if you like tinkling ivories, then you are very much welcome to tinkle to your hearts content.

Interaction with guests

I live here in the flat most nights of the week. You can exist without contact though, as you have your own bathroom and i will supply all information you need during check in. If you do want to go out for a G n T/pint/orange juice though, that could be nice.

The neighbourhood

Its perfect for wandering in to town. Just away from the loutiness of Newcastle, it is a little oasis of calm. Cinema 200m away. 24 hour supermarket 200m away. Cafe across the road. Great Pubs. And i love trains. There are trains.

Getting around

Near to Newcastle Central train station, or Gateshead interchange Metro/Bus stop. Both link directly with the Airport.

Other things to note

FREE hot drink and breakfast at the Quilliam Brothers Tea House every morning of your stay!It's 20 minutes walk away (or 5 minutes on the metro). Breakfast runs from 10am - Noon.

Tom's place was reasonably priced and was central to where we were travelling i.e. The Sage Gateshead. The flat facilities were good and towels were ready on arrival. We were made to feel really welcome by the host Joe (Tom's relative) with offering breakfast for free at the Quilliam Brothers cafe and being able to help ourselves to any food in the flat. Joe's communication was good throughout. The flat was tidy. I enjoyed the cultural feel with the musical instruments and the modern decor. I'd recommend the place to anyone.

What a fab flat. Joe (Tom's cousin) made my stay hugely enjoyable - welcoming, clean, friendly etc. Thank you!

Hubby & I are just driving home after a great stay at Tom's in Gateshead. Very close to the bridge, so you can be amongst the restaurants/bars of Newcastle in 10mins, the shops in 15mins. Tom was away, but we met James at Quilliam Brothers' Teahouse who provided us with the key and gave us his number in case we had any questions. A delicious breakfast was provided the following morning free of charge (sadly closed today as it is Easter Sunday...but normally open Sundays too). Thanks very much Tom & James

Fine first accommodation with airbnb. Great location, clean friendly and much more personal experience than hotels in the area, as well as easier on the pocket. Breakfast well worth the trip. It was excellent. Si and Lisa

The place and Joe, the host, were fantastic. I came to Newcastle to present at a conference at Newcastle University. The place was perfectly located for me, as I could walk from there to the university in just 20 minutes, crossing the bridge and enjoying a beautiful walk.

This was the second time I stayed at Tom's, and it was just as good as before. The location is perfect for Newcastle, (I was at the Sage in 5 minutes), the room is tidy, clean and comfy. Kitchen is great and there was no problem letting me do a load of washing as I had been on the road for some time. Joe was very courteous and helpful. Good vibe all round. Thank you!
