This Hotel was chosen for a special birthday for my wife. The location is nice and close to the river Tyne and has some lovely views of it. We have used the hotel in the past so I was more than a little concerned when my wife wished to use it again, mainly because of the poor service we had... More

This was like Faulty Towers.... Arrived and waited about 5 minutes for anyone to appear. We had to go to the bar and ask for someone(twice!) Rooms are ok but dated and the hotel doesn't know what it's trying to be with all kinds of mixed styles. Room and bathroom were in need of attention. No phone in room and... More

This was my 3rd stay at The Elephant on the Tyne and 2nd year in a row for the Great North Run weekend. The fact I keep returning says it all really. It’s a very relaxed place with friendly staff keen to help and make sure your stay is as good as can be. Nothing I disliked really, floors can... More

Me and my wife stayed for one night whilst we visited friends for a night out. The hotel is in a great location, right on the river and 5 mins drive to the city centre. We read reviews prior to booking and saw there were some bad reviews, but we wanted a cheap and cheerful place for just one night,... More

After staying here several years ago and enjoying the stay we were hopeful of an equally enjoyable stay, we couldn't have been more wrong. The staff on arrival were not interested at all other than to say you must pay up front, CASH Only! Not a good start. The room was very dated and if it had been cleaned it... More

My husband & I held our 25th Wedding Anniversary here on 12/7/14. I cannot compliment the staff enough, they were fantastic. The food was unbelievably good. Without exception, every single one of our guests said the food was gorgeous. The function room was decorated lovely, another comment made by a lot of our guests. I was a little concerned about...

We stayed as we were attending an engagement party there. Function & Catering Excellent set out, lovely food and efficient service - absolutely no complaints other than I would have opened some of the doors as it was boiling hot. Accomodation VERY Basic! The cleaners obviously have never seen a duster or know how to use one as our entire... More
