Where's the best place/area to stay in Newcastle with the one provision being that it has to be vehicle friendly. For a couple of nights in August.

Depends what you're after from your stay.

Most of the bigger city centre hotels have parking, Jesmond and Gosforth are nice suburbs a 10 minute walk from the city centre.

You could stay on the coast and use the Metro system to get into the city, it's about 20 minutes ride.

There's a lot of serviced apartments available for short hires now too.

The Tyne valley has some beautiful villages if you're after a rural setting, but it's only half an hour at most from the city.

Avoid anywhere south of the Tyne, unless you are Burt Reynolds in a canoe.

Depends what it's for. If it's boozing and you want to be in the city centre, there's stuff like the Jury's Inn. If you're with the missus and want something a bit nicer, there's Jesmond Dene House closer to town or stuff like Matfen Hall (danger of running into CT in a bathrobe) or Slaley Hall which are a bit further out.

Australians = anywhere in the UK would do - they drive hundreds of miles there just to get a beer
