At first we drove past this hotel as it's situated between an Italian Restaurant and a bar/club but turns out it's all part of the same place! Parked out front no problem, although seems there are only a few spaces so I would imagine there's a possibility for on-street parking. I had called ahead to ask if we could check... More

On our four weeks in England, we planned to stay here one long afternoon and night to recuperate before heading to Scotland. We were exhausted, so we grateful for our large, very comfortable room with a full sea view and a super comfortable sofa, where we collapsed (turn the sofa around to face the big bay window). There's a busy... More

We stayed a couple of nights. Friday night ate next door at the Italian restaurant, which was good. Seaview room was amazing, spacious and fabulous. The second night proved to be noisy as there is a club next door. Breakfast was good with a wide choice but not able to offer different types of milk or gluten, wheat free food.... More

We had a sea view on a thursday night and enjoyed a good night's sleep. Whitley Bay was quiet on the night we stayed and proved a good choice because the Italian restaurant next door proved to be good value. There are only a few parking spaces in front of the hotel which were taken when we arrived but you... More

Served in the Noir restaurant, my mum and I were served a lovely afternoon tea today (even using a groupon voucher). We were offered a great choice of both sandwiches and scones (nice to get a choice) with a lovely selection of mini cakes. Quality was high and the tea was twinnings - always good. The only slight downside was... More

The Hotel was clean, comfortable, the room was of a good standard and the staff were very helpful, changing our room to a large superior room with sea view, when we arrived. The breakfast was incredible, I think anyone would struggle to find a better breakfast anywhere! Plenty and an amazing variety. Downstairs was a bar area where we enjoyed... More

14 05 20 Noir 1st. visit - a Groupon ‘Tapas’ deal - and rather good it was, too! A quiet Tuesday, dull & cool outside but welcoming inside. Almost any table to choose so we sat by the window. It’s a large lounge/bar area decorated in a high contrast style Black & White, of course! Pleasant lighting and modern décor.... More
