Stayed here for 2 days while on a rugby tour in May 2014, the Staff were very friendly ,helpful and even opened the bar for our morning court sessions. Would recommend for lads\stags\hens weekends away. Not necessarily some where I would stay with the wife or with a family but perfectly suited to what we needed.

Just arrived at the hotel, when one of the door staff made a sarcastic comment to us a bout being Scottish , when answered back he took offence and told us we were not allowed in. When we questioned why he then got the police involved and we weren't allowed to stay.There was 14 of us who all paid £105... More

I am upset I have to explain again why the party was refused entry to the hotel. This has already been explained with several of the parents and the booking agent. On arrival the party were clearly intoxicated and seemed rowdy getting off the coach. A few gentlemen approached my doorman to get into the bar when he explained to... More

My friends and I stayed at the venue for a stag break for the weekend and I honestly can't fault the place! Whitley bay itself was fairly quiet as it was the winter season so we got a taxi into Newcastle for £3 each (between 4 of us) we had a resident kitty setup for the room and we came... More

I honestly thought the other reviews given by people are a tad too harsh. Yes, it does have lil cigarette smell in the room but they have tried to dampen the smell with an air fresherner in the room. The shower in my room did have a very minimal amount of mould but iam not too fussed about it. All... More

Dear sir/madam In reply to your review I would firstly like to state that every single room in our hotel is an en-suite. There are no communal toilets or showers. Unfortunately I find it hard to believe there were no light bulbs in your room, if there was none I am sure you would have came down and reported it.... More

Booked this room as I was doing the Great North Run and the hotel was close in location as Newcastle was sold out almost everywhere. The room was simply awful. For a room for 2 people, the bed was slightly bigger than a single bed. The sheets smelt of cigarettes as did the corridors. Only 1 towel was provided for... More

We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us but I feel some of your comments do not show a true likeness of the establishment. I can assure you your bed was a double bed, as for the smell of cigarettes on the sheets I find hard to believe as all are laundry are professionally dry cleaned. As... More

I am responding to this review as I think it is an unfair light upon our hotel, I can accept that out rooms are ‘basic’ as we are a party hotel and cater for that need. As for this sick on the walls and dirty bathroom I disagree, all our rooms are cleaned thoroughly and am sure that if the... More
