CTD Architectural Tiles check in to Newcastle’s latest hotel

  • 9 Aug 2022

Leading commercial tile supplier CTD Architectural Tiles has helped create a stunning first impression at the new INNSiDE by Melia Hotel in the heart of Newcastle.

Located in the historic Quayside area of the city, the new hotel has been designed by architects FaulknerBrowns to complement the industrial heritage of its surroundings and features a tile package that combines natural aesthetics with enhanced durability.

Tiles from CTD Architectural Tiles’ Realstone Rain range, which has been inspired by the look and feel of English Limestone, were specified for use in the hotel’s main entrance area and staircase.

To create a focal point, the floor design features the soft tones of the Almond coloured Realstone Rain tiles with the darker Greige tiles installed in strips across the width of the floor.


The natural look of the interior design continues into the new Gino D’Acampo restaurant, where tiles from the wood-inspired Treverkever range have been used. Treverkever tiles are ideally suited for use in busy high traffic environments and on this project, have been specified in a stunning dark Musk colour option to provide an attractive contrast with the lighter coloured stone effect tiles of the main reception area.

CTD Architectural Tiles also provided the high gloss Savoy Noir black tiles for the walls of the public washrooms and the durable, non-slip Kursaal Neutral tiles as a flooring solution.

To complete the commercial tile package, CTD Architectural Tiles also supplied white gloss Rectified Ceramic tiles to finish the walls of the en-suite bathrooms of each of the four-star hotel’s 161 bedrooms. The tiling work was completed by Plunkett Tiling for main contractor Robertson Construction.


With far-reaching views of the River Tyne, the stylish new hotel has helped breathe new life into Newcastle’s Quayside and boasts a range of facilities including a fitness suite and conference rooms. 

As well as needing to complement the natural beauty of its surroundings, the specified tile package also had to meet the requirements of a busy city-centre hotel and so important considerations such as slip-resistance, durability and ease of maintenance were factored in at the outset with specialist advice provided by CTD Architectural Tiles’ specification team.
