What a find! Not expensively priced, beautiful room with a massive bed and nice decor. The staff were lovely and helpful, especially Dawn. There also turned out to be a bus just over the road to get into Newcastle in 20 minutes. Had a great stay.

A little Gem. Good standards all round. Nothing is a problem to make sure you leave with a good impression! Easy routes to Northumberland, Durham and Newcastle. Highly recommended and reasonable rates.
