The hotel has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Made to feel very welcome. No hassle or fuss and in a good location for some good restaurants. My girlfriend for her jewelry and the maid found it and handed it in to reception who rang us to tell us. Very honest staff. Thank you

I lived in Newcastle for 3 years as a student and during one of those years I lived in Jesmond and because it is a decent area I expected the hotels to be decent too. The only good things about the hotel were the location (city centre prices were sky high so Jesmond was the obvious 2nd choice), the receptionists... More

I was put off the hotel when reading the reviews but the hotel was already booked so there was little I could do. However, I am glad I didn't choose somewhere else as the prices were reasonable, the walk into the city centre is short and the staff are very friendly. I booked two rooms for 4 people for 2... More

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, the room furniture was broken, carpet heavily stained, dirty and cold. The hotel dining room was nothing short of looking like a building sight, breakfast was awful and the little food there was ran out. I felt sick as I looked at the dining room walls. The hotel caters for... More

We booked this hotel last minute and didnt bother looking on tripadvisor as we know the location which is very upmarket so assumed it would be fine. The bottom of the toilet was all stained black,there were scuff marks all over the bath, the shower head was clogged... More
