My office booked this hotel for me for one night (thankfully) as I was in the area working away from home. The hotel is on the edge of an industrial site and gipsy site and although it is on the side of the tyne the views are nothing to write home about. I arrived early, between 1.00 - 2.00 pm... More

Do not stay: unprofessional, unfriendly, rude staff. No-one on reception at time of arrival. Unable to pay by debit/credit card as payment by cash only. Not advised time of breakfast or where to find the room. Room was smelly, cheap and tired in need of updating and new fixtures and fittings. Could not get shower to work, it was either... More

Unfortunately, all of the above was true in our case. We stayed here for a wedding and in fairness they ran the night time do... More

I stayed here on 8/3/14 for my friends 21st birthday. There were 6 of us in 3 rooms and this was organised by my friends friend. I looked at the reviews on here a week before I came and saw that there were more bad than good reviews so made me a bit uneasy about staying there. So we got... More

Where to begin with this hotel. We arrived on the 13th of december 2013 and were asked to pay for the stay as laterooms dont deduct the money there and then, which is standard so when offered to pay by debit card we were refused as in 2013 the hotel didnt accept debit cards. What? Luckily there was a cash... More

Absolutely horrible hotel. Do not waste your money staying here. Staff are rude, unwilling to accept responsibility for poor service and disgusting state of rooms. Location is far from Newcastle. next door to a gypsy site which left me feeling quite nervous, especially as the rooms are very insecure. My key actually opened several doors on our floor (friends were... More
