Not usually the type of hotel I'd stay in. The staff are very friendly and more than willing to help you out, probably the friendliest staff I have encountered at a hotel. The hotel is very basic, but I wouldn't have expected any more for £35 per night. It's close to the city centre, within walking distance, or £6 in... More

Great place, excellent value @ £30/night for a comfy nice and warm room with a fridge to keep the beer cold *lol* and free tea and coffee. The full English breakfast in the morning is too good too miss - and included in the price. Free car park available too, very easy to get too - also via public transport.... More

The Hanson is very easy to reach by train from New Castle Airport, very close to the universities and at walking distance from downtown. There are also some good Pubs in the Nearby. The hosts arer very friendly and attentive. It has good rooms and is very cost-effective

I stayed for one night. Despite the pleasant welcome and friendly service at breakfast bottom line the room was very poor. Bed was soft; pillows worn; walls were paper thin so as guests came through the front door the whole room reverberated with drunken footsteps. No shampoo or shower soap. I was happy to leave and never return.

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
