Stayed bed and breakfast, didnt use restaurant other than breakfast. Lovely Luxury room...clean, comfortable and airy. Breakfast was gorgeous, hot breakfast made to order fresh. Drinks, fruit, cereal and yoghurt choices were good too. only small criticism was the superking bed was two single beds hooked together so there was a dip in the middle where the gap between mattresses...

Reviews for wheelchair users are few and far between so decided to put our input to help others in our situation. Speaking personally this hotel is not suitable for a full time independent wheelchair user. My partner is a full time wheelchair user and we have visited many hotels with so called adapted facilities. Please do not disregard all Best... More

My husband stays here occasionally when on business in Newcastle and this time I went along with him to do some shopping at the Metro center. Check in was very friendly and smooth and we were quickly given keys to our room which was a fair distance from the reception and up a flight of stairs. The room was reasonably... More

We visited Gateshead to attend a family wedding and I can honestly say it was one of the best we have been to. This hotel was fab, even had the ceremony inside as well. The wedding meal was lovely, plates and food piping hot, and service at the bar was swift, despite the numbers in attendance. Did not stay on... More

Stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of August to attend a family wedding. The room was a good size, with a comfortable bed and well appointed bathroom with all the usual toiletries. The only negatives were the Wifi connection and the limited free parking. We found the staff particularly helpful when booking; with special mention to the househeeping staff,... More

We stayed for a night as part of the Great North Run and the hotel was great. The team were really helpful with taxis and lovely with the kids. The prices were inflated due to the GNR but not anymore than other hotels within the area. The room was large and had everything we needed but the mattress was in... More

I stayed here on a very short trip to see friends. I had a junior suite which was surprisingly lovely. The staff were incredibly helpful. I would recommend if you want somewhere comfortable that us close to local attractions like the Metro Centre, Gateshead, Newcastle, Beamish or even Northumberland & Durham

Spent two nights here on a business trip. Room was nice, usual soap and shower stuff, tea and coffee. The only issue I had was the wifi connection. Restaurant and bar meals were good. Breakfast was a bit / lot over priced at over £12.
