Upon its opening in August 2011, the four-storey, 203-bedroom hotel will feature a restaurant, bar and three conference rooms holding up to 180 delegates.

General manager David Malanaphy, from the hotel’s sister property Jurys Inn Newcastle, will head both hotels and is looking to recruit up to 80 staff from the surrounding areas.

He said: “We’re delighted to be opening a second impressive new hotel in the Newcastle area in response to a clear increase in demand for accommodation in the city. We’re keen to work with the local community and the local workforce, to ensure the hotel is a valuable asset to the area.”

The group hopes the launch of the hotel will create a stronger presence for Jurys Inn in the north, alongside nearby properties in Leeds, Bradford and Sheffield.

Jurys Inn Newcastle Gateshead Quays will be the 24th property for the group, which operates 31 three-star hotels in city centre locations in the UK, Ireland and Czech Republic.
