Stayed here December 2013. Hotel was booked for me by the company that I work for. To check in, you walk up to the bar, wait half an hour and then get shown to your room. There was a lot of confusion regarding how the room was paid for. Once this was sorted, I asked for the Wifi code -... More

We stayed in a twin room for 1 night and couldn't wait to get out! There were some safety issues- electrical sockets hanging off, corridors with no lighting, no fire evacuation information, no door security in room, light switches broken. In addition, we couldn't access the wifi as no code, couldn't turn on the taps to the sink and awful... More

First off, I must say that the staff were generally friendly and helpful. The room was a good size, clean and the shower was plenty hot enough. On the down side, bearing in mind that this is a 4* hotel .... Our initial thought was that they had piled some old furniture at the front of the hotel. Actually it... More

Thank you for your review and we are pleased that you found the hotel to be good value and our staff friendly. However, we feel that your comments are unjustified in relation to 4 star hotel standards as we are not, and do not advertise as a 4 star hotel but AA assessed 4 star guest accommodation. As such, our... More

During the three years my Son was at Newcastle University, my family have stayed at a number of hotels in Osbourne Road. Mostly these have been reasonable value for money; none so fabulous to make me want to write a glowing review on TripAdvisor, nor bad enough to prompt a review either . . . Until now. Seven of us...

Thank you for your review and we note your comments. However, some points need clarification ; Our car park is has 1 car park space per bedroom and pro rata is the largest on Osborne Road. Most hotels have at least 3 times as many bedrooms as us and smaller car parks. The room referred to by this guest has... More

After we had filled in registration form the manager came and studied hotel register and told us another couple of same name had checked in.

We understand that there was indeed a problem with this booking and apologised profusely to the guests as we found them alternative accommodation. However, we did not refuse to pay the bill: the customer understandably cancelled the online booking and then insisted that we pay for the hotel next door, in effect paying nothing themselves! As for the alternative hotel... More

I recently stayed in a family room in this hotel (Monday - Wednesday) and have some issues regarding the accommodation. On arriving I made my way with my family - wife and two children (6 and 1 yrs old). There was no travel cot in the room so I asked for one to be brought up. After checking in and... More

Thank you for your review and we regret that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We have replaced the travel cot which hadn't been used for quite some time an apologise if it wasn't as clean as it should have been. We don't however, accept many of the other criticisms. The room in question has recently been redecorated... More

Stayed at The Kenilworth for one night and found it to be very good value for the money. We arrived one hour before the time we had advised the hotel, so staff were a bit short on the ground as you would expect ( room changeover ). Agree with previous guest on the hot water but the cold shower certainly... More

I agree with another guest's review. A hotel should provide hot water at all times of the day. The proprietor is well aware of this and admits the water is on a timer and cannot cope if other guests use the water before you do. Sorry, but two cold showers in one day just isn't good enough. The room was... More
