Carvery was about the size of wallpaper pasting board . And whats the point of paying extra for a adult when all the... More

My review is for Sunday lunch. We come en masse on a Sunday as the car very is very reasonable and great. As home cooked as you can get. The room is large so you don't have to book in advance and lots of people do a take away.Try it !

Unfortunately parties were in full swing and we had a poor night's sleep as guests returned to their rooms throughout the night. The hotel is attached to a pub and there seemed to be people drinking heavily most of the day. The hotel was in a place convenient for where we wanted to be but is on the outskirts of... More

My experience did not start well as had booked 2 rooms via hotels.com and the hotel had no trace of my booking. They rushed to clean up two rooms and once in, I was more than baffled by the four single beds that were scattered around the room. Mattresses were not that comfortable and the bathroom looked extremely dated with... More

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.
