One of the main questions that flyers ask is what is best – should I stay at an airport hotel with parking on site or stay at a hotel near Newcastle Airport?
Each option has its benefits and disadvantages. Of course, no matter how close you are to the airport you’re still likely to need shuttle transport from the hotel to the terminal and of course, the cost is likely to be higher for the standard of service you’ll receive in terms of room size. Some travellers also prefer to stay a few miles away from the airport so that they can enjoy a quieter and more relaxed stay away from the hubbub as onsite airport hotels can be far busier places.
