“Using LNOF made arranging the weekend so much easier, not just for me but for the rest of the lads too. We were placed in a great hotel in Newcastle with friendly and helpful staff who were in good spirits with us! The paintballing we booked was good, but the nightlife was the main attraction. So many bars, clubs and pubs that accommodate for everyone. Most important of all is the guys of LNOF! They were so helpful in regards to the booking, we had to make a few adjustments in the time we booked to when we actually went, they were very accommodating to us. All in all, a good weekend and I will highly recommend anyone to use LNOF! ”
“Where do I begin? We went up to Newcastle on the Friday and checked in before going out on the 'toon'. One point of note is that there is a bond of £30 per person per room however, if everyone behaves this will be returned without question. Despite this, still had a wicked night (from what I can remember) and the bar in the hotel open until 5am was just sensational.
Sufficed to say, being up for paintballing at 9am the next day was a bit of a chore but worth it. The only problem really was that the games were a bit far apart and the paint was quite expensive (you HAVE to buy a further £16 worth per person when you arrive, otherwise they don’t let you play - and also, they wouldn’t give us the paint for members of our group who couldn’t make it in the morning due to work commitments, which I thought was a bit harsh to be fair.....) but otherwise, a fun day.
On the Saturday night we took full advantage of the pre-paid entry into the clubs and bars and, to our amazement, in the LiquidEnvy 'super-club' where we ended up, all drinks were 60p - doubles at a £1!!!! The rest I will leave to your imagination......!
A good time all in all and well worth it for the price we paid. Thanks Last Night of Freedom!”
“The hotel was ideally situated and a vast improvement on one used for a previous stag-do in Newquay this year (don't worry: that wasn't a LNOF affair). The rooms were excellent, well-lit, with plenty of space and excellent shower facilities. More to the point, it was possible to actually sleep in the beds, which may sound obvious, but if you'd been in Newquay you'd understand my point.
I should probably mention the staff at this juncture. All of the staff were highly professional and extremely helpful at all times. Quite how they managed to deal so brilliantly with such a huge number of drunk stag / hen do parties is beyond me, but they did. Maybe they deserve a medal, I don't know ...
Newcastle was a fantastic city in which to have a stag thingummy. The town was clean and tidy and the people were all very nice, even though we couldn't understand a word they said. (Just kidding ... we had a Geordie to English translator with us.)
If you're after a wild night-life, or maybe just a restrained night out on the beer, it is the ideal place. It caters to all tastes (even some quite dubious ones), and has a veritable plethora of pleasing public hostelries and clubs. I would particularly recommend the pubs by the Quayside but there are some excellent clubs in the middle of town too, particularly that one on the main drag where - for reasons best known to themselves - both Wolverine and Spiderman were drinking. The trouble is, I've forgotten the name of the place.
Best of all, no matter where you end up, you're never too far away from the hotel to walk back, which is a relief after spending the equivalent of the Third World's national debt on beer and kebabs. Well ... I say that, but if you wake up in Cleethorpes in the morning, you're probably a little too far away to walk back, unless of course you're a very keen walker.
In terms of activities I would suggest that it is wise to keep it simple and not try to do too much. The quad biking is brilliant and I cannot promote it enough. The bloke that runs it is a certifiable nutter - don't tell him that you work in an office if you want him to leave you alone - and needs to put in several more hours work before he takes his stand-up routine on the road with him. But on the plus side, he knows what he's doing, and his wife makes a great cup of tea.
All in all it was a big success, as indicated by the blood-drained, alcohol-drenched sea of hungover visitors at breakfast on Sunday morning.”
