Was a bit worried after reading all the bad reviews but the hotel is nothing like that we had a fantastic time. Great location, good food, rooms were ok. What do people expect for 30 pp??? I will be staying again. Coming back in November ☺ thanks for a good stay

I can't even put into words how horrible this hotel was and the experience I had. I wouldn't even recommend this hotel to my worst enemy. The room smelt, TV didn't work, heating on 24/7 in the middle of summer! Rock hard mattresses, very noisy and wifi didn't extend to bedrooms (even though we paid for this). If you go,... More

We stayed in the Ravensdene Lodge in May for a friends birthday, the staff where all lovely and could not be more helpful! The rooms are basic but met our needs! Bar is open till late so great for when you come back in after a night out, the hotel itself is about a 15 minute taxi ride from the... More

Parking at the rear is spacious and presents no problems, although the entry to it perhaps should have been better signposted. Upon entering Ravensdene the overall impression was that in it's day it would probably have been quite nice, but that would have been many many years ago. We arrived quite late in the evening, about 10.00. At that time... More

Very basic, but acceptable. Imagine 20yrs ago the place was pretty decent but has slowly gone down hill. 4 army type beds in room, bedding clean. Done what was required for a stag do weekend, but certainly wouldn't choose for any other purpose. Breakfast was a very poor effort.

Scruffy outside and scruffy inside. Very basic, old and tacky. It is cheap and you get what you pay for. Dusty, dirty and just cheap. Go elsewhere and have a decent stay. I would never return unless i was on a boozy weekend in Newcastle and just wanted to doss down.

Stayed here with some friends recently for your typical Newcastle weekend. Right in the centre of everything, cheap room, cheap taxi fare to the town centre. Bar staff are excellent, really friendly and the food is all homemade - absolutely delicious!!! Will be staying again.

We stayed here on the way to Scotland and on the way back. On the first stay the room was clean but cold as no heating,. On the way back my daughters room has not been cleaned. When I complained they had no alternative rooms so they changed the bedding and the damp towels. If you want a cheap hotel... More
