We got a warm welcome at the Magpie's Guest House. Great friendly staff, clean comfortable room and very good breakfast with lots of choice. Will visit again next time we are over from Canada. Good position for restaurants too.

Me and a mate travelled up to watch the football in Newcastle over the weekend. We had tried booking a place in the centre but as it was done last minute we had to look a bit more outside the city centre. It turned out to be a very good move and i would definitely book to stay here again.... More

The breakfast was perfect, and we all felt extremely welcome and relaxed, as staying away from home with young children can be stressful. Would definitely stay again, and advise anyone... More
