On arriving at this hotel I was very disappointed before I even went through the reception doors. The name sign is dropping to pieces , looks appalling on the front of any hotel. We were on the fourth floor so chose to take the lift , only one was working ( out of a possible two) , which took a... More

Stayed here on more than one occassion. The decor is a bit dated now, the exterior could do with a bit of maintenance and some of the facilities need updating a little but it is acceptable for a business trip. Breakfast is a buffet so you can eat as much as you like. I use this hotel for work in... More

Having read the reviews I was quite surprised to find it wasn't as bad as i expected it to be. Yes it needs a lot of TLC but the bed was clean as was the bathroom. the receptionist was friendly but not particularly helpful. I slept well which is always a good sign. Breakfast was edible but not one of... More

Just returned from the Swallow hotel, Gateshead. Like other reviewers have already mentioned, this hotel could do with both external and internal repairs and renovation. I am sure this hotel would have been amazing back in the day, you can see this with the grand dining room and bar areas. However, like a lot of these 1960's built hotels, they... More

Having read the reviews after we had booked we were very apprehensive and felt we had made a huge mistake, however, the staff were friendly, polite and efficient. Our room was on the fourth floor which appeared to have undergone some refurbishment. Our room was adequate in size and very clean. The towels were exceptionally nice, we have had much... More

Don't book this place unless you need to save the pennies. Monday night cost £34 inc breakfast can't grumble at that, breakfast was ok but nothing special. Hotel is aged and is in desperate need of money being spent on it. For example my chair in the room had a rip in the arm with the stuffing peeping through, non... More
