Great place very welcoming. Stayed for 2 excellent nights with great breakfasts each morning. Feel secure as 2 police officers (with a sense of humour) also have breakfast. This is not a 5* so don't expect a 5*. Would definitely stay here again. 2 minutes from the busy town centre. They will help you if your in a group and... More

Lovely couple but the single room was too small as was the fitted sheet on the bed. I was a bit concerned about the electric. Not what previous reviewers suggested so I was surprised to find myself let down by the location and quality of the hotel.

The owner is very welcoming and friendly and I had a room at the top of the hotel. The room was clean but cramped and the fittings basic - a few health and safety issues I suspect (eg plug board screwed to the wall to reach the TV). I was there for two nights and there was no table or... More

Lovely rooms and dinning area, breakfast is brilliant! Just like being home from home, felt very comfortable. They could not do enough for you and very helpful if you need to know about the local area.----------------------------------

A great place to base yourself for exploring Newcastle and the surrounding area. Meg and George the hosts are a very friendly couple. The breakfasts were lovely and set me up for each day. You can have it any time between 7.00 a.m. and 9.00 a.m. each day. The hotel is a 5-minute walk from Jesmond Metro Station - 5... More

We were a 13 party hen do, we could not have had a better place picked for us. Meg has this hotel down to a tee, for a large group there were big rooms so we were not all separated into twins and the outdoor area is great to be able to sit together. Breakfast was great and any need... More

We stayed here for 2 nights for a graduation, chosen for the convenient location to the city centre and the university. Very basic rooms - but spotless, and the beds were much more comfortable than they actually looked. There was also a fridge and much needed tea and coffee making facilities - (we've stayed in more expensive hotels that don't... More

We stayed here for one night and the room was very clean and comfortable. The owner, Meg was very friendly and made a lovely breakfast. The hotel is very good value for money and convenient for the city centre.

The Hanson hotel was ideal for our recent hen do. Right from check in we knew we were in for the best time. Meg is the best land lady you could ever ask for on a hen do, entering into the fun of the weekend whilst still looking out for everyone and making sure that the whole group has a... More
