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

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

The Hotel is a in a really great quiet location on the Tyne however it is let down by a few things. 1) The beds has a broken springs so dips in the middle a lot! (How could of this happened?) 2) No remote for the TV so have to change channels and adjust volume on the TV itself.

I feel I have to write a review because we have just spent a lovely weekend here at our friends wedding. Yes, it's not the best hotel we've ever stayed at but I have to say the staff went all-out to make the wedding day very special for our friends. Yes, the rooms are a bit dated and basic but... More

Unfortunately the room was only 80% cleaned, the `4 poster` was a rickety cage arrangement and thechipboard floors were loose and v noisy.The bed was clean as was the bathroom.Breakfast was satisfactory.
