Happy New Year all!
For the end of 2010, and start of 2011, me and the boy booked a posh night out in Newcastle: dinner at Cafe 21, followed by MANY drinks and a stay at the absolutely fabulous, Hotel Du Vin on Newcastle’s Quayside.
Neither of us had stayed in Hotel Du Vin before, and as it is a bit further up the Quayside than most people usually venture, we weren’t sure how busy it would be.
The hotel itself is set in the industrial bit of the Quayside; I absolutely loved the setting! It has views over an old ship building yard and some of Newcastle’s architectural gems can be seen from this end of the Quayside – beautiful Victorian buildings which aren’t often seen!
After our meal, we ventured back to the hotel bar for a couple of drinks and it was VERY busy – alot of people were waiting to go into the bistro for their New Year’s Eve meal. The menu looked lovely but as we booked quite late, the restaurant was fully booked.
Here are some photos I took of our room, the grounds and surroundings of Hotel Du Vin, Newcastle.
How did everybody else celebrate New Year?
