Great value and beautiful food.mi had oysters kilpatrick which had a beautiful sauce, and a Caesar salad with prawns. Serving size was great value for money. Great Caesar with plenty of bacon, prawns, croutons and egg. Would recommend this place. Lovely dining area also, good for Two, family or a party

I was very pleasantly surprised while at the Sunnyside, where I was staying due to an early morning business trip departure time. The accommodation was stylish as well as clean. I booked a room with an ensuite - the bed was comfortable, the shower strong and hot, and there was even an espresso machine in the communal kitchen. An added... More

We spent 2 nights here, only choosing it for its close proximity to a particular venue we had to travel too. Though the location is in an area that I would probably not frequent, the accomodation was surprisingly new, modern and very very clean. The pub downstairs can be heard but music is off by 9pm on Fridays and 11pm... More

Stayed here for four weeks for work. Nice bed, nice sheets. Well priced meals. Casual, friendly atmosphere and staff. will stay here again when back In Newcastle. Hotel is on a bus route so might want a back side facing room if noise is a problem early in the morning.

From the outside it doesn't look like much but we were super pleased to find that you definitely can't judge this book from it's cover. Inside we found a very clean and fresh feel pub and the friendly staff made check-in very easy. We got a great tour and 2 free drink vouchers as we were shown to our room.... More

I stayed here recently with my partner as it was very close to the Newcastle Entertainment Centre and was very surprised by the accommodation. It has been recently renovated and is a very nice, clean and tidy little establishment, even though a few of the rooms share the bathroom and shower facilities it was still a great place to stay...
