Lovely hotel with lovely staff. Great selection of rooms standard, deluxe, suites and a apartment. Nice restaurant and a bar doing pub grub in a small but lively village. With a selection of pubs and restaurants . Very convenient if your working in the newcastle area. Will be staying again.

I had a very good stay at this hotel. The food was excellent and the location is decent. The room was just the right size and was cleaned daily. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Very reasonable price. I would recommend this to a friend and I would definitely stay here again next time I am in Newcastle.

My partner and I stayed here for one night on 07.03.15. We booked via the hotels website and got an amazing deal including breakfast. We checked in after paying just 20p for the car park (as we arrived at 4.45pm on Saturday we didn’t need to pay £1 as its free on Sundays). The car park is close to the... More

The hotel itself is fantastic, warm welcome with a fast check in. Room miles better than expected very large comfy bed with plenty of pillows. There is a good bar upstairs and we could not hear a thing from our room. Car park is opposite but there are quite a few steps up to the road but from there easily... More

Thank you for reviewing the hotel. Staff do not park in the area you describe. This is not our land and belongs to the restaurant next door. The taxis do not always come into the hotel and announce that they are waiting they just expect guests to be looking out for their taxi, especially on a busy Saturday night. This... More

Stayed here for one night when attending a show at Metro Radio Arena and also shopping at Metro Centre. A great value hotel with friendly and attentive staff, comfortable and cosy rooms...massive beds! Food in bar was reasonably good and fair priced, large portions, but peculiar home made chips...rather soggy and strange flavour... We booked through booking.com and prebooked breakfast.... More

After a long 5 hour drive, to be welcomed by friendly and helpful staff is always appreciated and to find the hotel and my room in very clean and well-presented condition was excellent. The bar and restaurant staff could not have been more helpful and dinner was of a very high standard. The Gibside was certainly one of the best... More

But the staff were friendly, parking sufficient and hotel clean. The room was nicely decorated with a massive bed which was lovely and comfortable. The centre is a short taxi ride away or even shorter to the nearest metro line. Enjoyed breakfast in the morning which was delicious. Whilst this hotel is dated I personally enjoyed a great sleep and... More
