We were a coach party visiting the local area. The staff were very helpful. The restaurant catered for all tastes with very large servings. There is a local shoppping centre for anything you need. It seemed to be well placed for the places we wanted to visit

After meeting with Mary last year we knew The Gibside Hotel was the perfect venue for our wedding on 02/05/15. Mary is very warm and friendly but also very professional in her job and for this with her staff we had our perfect day.

Stayed her recently 4 nights on a coach tour of Northumbria. Nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Restaurant was very good with attentive staff, especially headman Paco. The bedroom was clean with a huge bed and the bathroom looked new and was spotless. Even the ceiling was tiled! My partner's only complaint was the lack of a lift but... More

The hotel is on a busy road which runs through Whickham, the entrance is behind Front Street which is the road that goes through Whickham, so when you see the hotel what you think is the front is actually the rear.,the entrance is in Rose Villa Lane. Plenty... More

Cannot fault this hotel. Rooms were very clean and the bed was very comfortable and relaxing. Newcastle city centre is about 15 mins away. U would pay between 10 and 15 quid in a taxi (this varies at weekend) would definitely be back at gidside. Hotel staff are very friendly

Rivals any 4* hotel in the city centre. Room, bar and restaurant were stylish and spotless paid £63 for a superior room. Excellent value for money and only 10 minutes from the city centre. Ideal base for a weekend getaway. We had a lovely Saturday night
