We stayed here as part of a hen do on 24-27 July 2015 and it was perfectly serviceable. We booked the cottage (recommended) and rooms 17 (double) and 57 (family room with four beds). Considering we paid £30pp per night, you can't expect 5 star luxury but the place was clean and the staff were helpful. I was really worried... More

This place is the pits. Filthy and tatty. The curtain was 1 piece of material which was raggy and dirty. My floor cloth is cleaner!! I don't know how this place got on to any web site as a hotel. I would have preferred to sleep in a field with out a tent!!

Suffocating rooms not many windows (couldn't open ours). Not enough mirrors. RUDE STAFF! Comfy and clean beds. Two plug sockets in the whole room which sleeps 6. Breakfast was rubbish. Tried overcharging us on the deposit you have to pay. Not very close to the city centre (taxi ride away). My friends room was so much better than ours. We've... More

The Bluebird Hotel is now under new management and is called Newcastle Rooms. We arrived, bracing ourselves for a dirty, unfriendly, cheap night. I loved the looks of the building in the pictures here and the location and price were perfect but the main reason I booked here was, I needed a room at the last minute and everything in... More

Ive stayed at the hotel for 2 trips now and I love it for the sheer comedy factor. It's cheap as chips and not as bad as people make out. When we arrived the wee guy was sleeping on the reception desk and they kept giving people the master key. There was a big group of lads there on our... More

Awful, awful experince. From the chaotic check-in ( the receptionist couldn't find the keys to some rooms, "acidentally" overchanged two people ) to the hasty departure the same day. This place is more of a " hostel / doss house " than a hotel. OK if your a student looking for a place to crash after a night on the... More

Yes at weekends they... More

Right,well I did have a few very small problems with my stay... - dirty walls, floor, sink, wardrobe, sheets and curtains, the ONLY thing that was clean was the mirror ... kind of. - the broken window that would not open - the broken door that took 10 mins to lock. - £20.00 deposit wanted per person before being allowed...

This place is a dump. I went down for my hen weekend with 13 girls. The rooms where disgusting. In the four bedroom en-suite there was poo in the kettle, bacon in one of the drawers. Beds where black, carpet, well that should have been thrown out. Also my friends bag got slashed. We came in from a day out... More
