“Nice little hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Nice little hotel, good service but the walls were paper thin in my room (number 27). This only became an issue in the morning and actually with 11:30 check did not mean I missed much sleep. However it was reasonably priced and it was easy to find.

Not too far from centre. Girl on desk friendly enough. Small reception. Room was average but comfortable enough with decent bathroom. Can be noisy with traffic outside but only if you open the windows. Overall would use again as it was value for money. Cheap and cheerful.

We only live about 30 minutes from this hotel. We booked as it worked out as cheap as paying taxi fares to get home after an evening out in Jesmond. It is Ideally located for access to the bars and restaurants on Osborne Rd and only a short journey to Newcastle city centre.

Although there is no car park we found a space in the residential area to the front of the hotel and were given a parking permit to display. Check in was straight forward and the lady on the reception desk was very pleasant. We had room 31 which was on the top floor. The hotel didn’t appear to have a lift so may not be suitable for those less mobile or with lots of luggage. The room was tiny (really more suited to being a single room than a double) but it was warm and cosy with a decent sized bathroom and very clean. I think it would be a struggle to cope with the lack of space for more than a night or two.

The only real downside to this hotel was the level of noise we experienced. Our room was facing Osborne Rd and we could hear traffic noise well into the night and were woken by it early the next morning. Rooms don’t appear to be well sound proofed either – although not the hotels fault, there were a couple of football fans in the room next door that came home singing and chanting in the early hours. We could hear every word of their conversation, even when they were in their room with the door closed. This wouldn’t put me off going back as I expect it is rare for this to happen but I would recommend ear plugs!

Unfortunately we didn’t get to try the hotels Persian restaurant as it was closed but the menu looked nice.

We paid £45 for a double room through Hotels.com with 10% cashback through Quidco, which I felt was about the right price. The prices displayed in reception were £75-£120 for a double room which I think for the size is very expensive. Overall a decent little hotel despite the noise.

Thank you for your comments and concerns.
We do advertise that there is on-street parking and permits are given on a first come first serve basis. Hotel with parking charge a premium on their room rates as this is an advantage but still there is quite a lot of parking near the hotel.
Our hotel has only 15 rooms and please appreciate that there is no room to place a lift and it would not seem economical as there are only two floors.
Our staff are happy to help when assistance is required to take suitcases or bags to rooms. Please ask when you check-in!!
As we cannot guarantee their will be no noise because Jesmond can be a busy place as it has Top restaurants and bars with-in walking distance.
Sometimes rates are reduced due to certain rooms
Thank you again for your concerns but will endeavor to improve where we can and look forward to seeing you again in the near future

I stayed for 6 nights - I had a very small room at the front of the hotel overlooking Osborne Rd which is busy with traffic and students. The noise kept me awake into the early hours each night so request a room at the back of the hotel or take ear plugs! The room was generally clean and in good order, not much storage - would have been adequate for a quick stop over but too cramped for a week. The housekeeping throughout my stay was patchy, but the front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. I didn't pay the extra £7 for breakfast each day - this seemed a bit pricy and as Jesmond has a variety of really lovely cafés I'd recommend taking a wander up the road.
Hotel is a 10 minute walk from both Jesmond & West Jesmond metro stations. It cost £3.10 to get the metro from the airport - really easy transport links.
It's close proximity to the university means this is student-ville - no doubt about it so consider this when booking!

Thank you for your comments and concerns. We cannot guarantee on the noise levels outside as Jesmond is a busy place in Newcastle upon Tyne.
Rooms on the top floor are smaller so please appreciate the price you pay as the some rooms are cheaper than others.
We will endeavor to improve in any concerns our customers have.

Thank you and we hope to see you again.

We stayed here mid-June for a long weekend away and although the weather wasn't brilliant, the hotel was! Nice rooms, pleasant service and a great location. The breakfast was also very nice and certainly recommended! I would go back again.

Stayed here in July 2012. Staff very friendly and enthusiastic. Room clean and modern,
Wifi can be used on the ground floor with excellent connectivity although would have preferred it in the room but had a weak signal, nevertheless, only a small hotel so I guess doesn't really concern much. Breakfast was great with a lot on the cooked breakfast plate.
Persian Restaurant in the hotel which serves very nice food at a very low prices.
Couldn't fault on anything on the room and excellent power shower in the morning!!
