Second stay at this hotel. Glad to see it's being refurbished, however am surprised this passes Health and Safety as you have to walk along a corridor with lots of exposed building works! The fire alarm 'accidently' went off before 8am on the Monday morning and then the builders started crashing about. Hardly conducive to a much needed lie in!!... More

My husband and I stayed at Cairn Hotel for the weekend during the Great North Run, we had a room on the second floor. The room was lovely, the en suite shower-room was excellent. Breakfast is continental style when we had both days. A large, flat-screen TV is positioned at the end of the bed, it was perfect. There are... More

We spent 3 nights in this hotel over the Great North Run Weekend. When we booked in the staff seemed only half interested in concerns we had over parking. Vehicles double park at the rear of the building as there is only permit parking on the surrounding roads. I was concerned we would be out enjoying the town and some... More

Advertise many services that are infact not available. I booked on booking.com which said there would be full english but there was none. Try somewhere... More

VERY rude staff. No hot water for the 2 days I was there - when I complained all I got was grief. Didn't bother with the breakfast as it looked that bad. Was locked out of the hotel at midnight, had to wait ten minutes to get in and was received by yet another rude member of staff. I had... More

The rooms are all the same layout with two single beds a dressing table and a good size bathroom with a full size... More

Most hotel's in Newcastle were booked up so I ended up in this one... The reception area was nice but the rest of the hotel most definitely is not! However we were told to go up to the top floor where I was pleasantly surprised to find brand new decor and a complete renovation. Our room was beautiful inside with... More
