Room was clean and comfortable but in need of refurbishment. Only place to sit and read was in the bar as there is no area set aside for guests. That why I call it an Inn. Breakfast was OK, not the best of ingredients and to my taste overcooked. Lovely garden and in a good location for exploring the North... More

Stayed here last night and apart from our terrible accident with the car, everything was bang on! Locations perfect for if your venturing into the city centre, the staff are so helpful and friendly and the rooms were immaculate! We're planning to come back to Newcastle in a couple of week and will be booking with the Dorset Arms again!... More

Stayed here this weekend. Great value for money, friendly staff, food was nice, room was clean and tidy. Overall can't fault this place. :-) think some people on here expect fillet steak for rump prices - this is a lovely little pub and hotel for down to earth, nice people.

3 people and 2 dogs for one night at the start of the Hadrians Wall walk. Friendly and accommodating. Pretty ordinary accommodation but it was clean and fine. Food was great value for money. Landlord was interesting and interested in us. Felt very comfortable.

My boyfriend spent the Easter weekend at the Dorset Arms Hotel whilst visiting family and were pleasantly surprised. I personally had only ever stayed in larger hotels previously and wasn't quite sure what to expect. We were greeted with a very warm welcome from the owner (Stan) who was very attentive throughout the whole of out stay. The bar had... More

This hotel is an absolute joke, stayed here with work and can only describe it as the pitts. The barman that seems to run the place is constantly drunk and too busy serving his friends, there's no chef in sight through the week so a meal is out the question and breakfast is thrown at you by the drunk that...
