We spent one night here at the start of a walk of the rural section of Hadrains' Wall. It was easily accessible by bus form the main sttaion in Newcastle, and only a minute from the Hadrians' Way path, so the location is ideal. The rooms were a standard budget hotel type, clean, quite and comfortable if unspectacular. Food in... More

Went last night for an evening meal. Last time I was here was about 8 years ago the food was amazing so I thought I would go back. Unfortunately last night was a very big disappointment. We ordered potatoe. Skins to start and the cheese was microwaved onto the skins, and as it was microwaved the skins we soggy was... More

My husband and I stayed at The Keelman's Lodge on the first day of our hike along Hadrian's wall. It was a suitable accommodation but overall very average. We were helped throughout the night with whatever we needed but the room was dated, and needed a bit of cleaning and repair (think cobwebs along the ceiling. Nothing filthy but a... More

Firstly it was lovely to have a bath in the room after a day's hiking. The proximity of the Pub/Restaurant was perfect and the evening meal we had was excellent - so too the choice of beer from the brewery. A pleasant stay in a lovely clean room.

The Big Lamp Brewery and the Keelman's Lodge is a brilliant combination. A good nights sleep was combined with the finest ales and food. We enjoyed our stay here very much. The staff made us feel welcome, gave excellent service and the breakfast in the morning was very tasty. A very nice stay on Hadrians Wall Path.

Stayed here for two nights while I was walking Hadrians Wall. Very comfortable rooms with every convenience. Well appointed bathroom and very comfortable bed. Staff were very charming and friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Rural setting but very close to Newcastle

I enjoyed staying in this place. The room was clean and pleasant, the bathroom was very good, and the dinner and breakfast was tasty. Service was good, and I would definitely recommend staying here - I was at the end of the first day of walking along Hadrian's Wall, as were many people here, I'm sure!

Needs a refurb. Rooms a decent size and good shower, but looks more 80's than 90's. Service was slow and by untrained staff in restaurant. Young chap had been working there a year and didn't know they had a wine list. If you want a pint and plate of chips, fine. But if it's your last stop on the Hadrian's... More

Comfortable well appointed and quiet room separate from nearby Keelmans Hotel, but within a minutes walk. All the usual touches, WIFI, tea and instant coffee, biscuits. Friendly, and obliging staff at The Keelmans Hotel, providing great bar snacks and meals. Right on the Hadrians Wall path.

The B&B was as usual up to a good standard. Nice place in the evening can get busy. Food was at a very poor standard. Hunters Chicken was well over cooked and such a small portion could not eat this. Was told to be careful as heard it was not great and too far to walk anywhere else.
