“The best B+B I've ever stayed in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2012

As I cycled the 2 miles from Newcastle centre up to Clifton House Hotel, I started to become a little apprehensive. The area seemed quite run down - not exactly rough but just not looked after. But Clifton House is like an oasis in a desert, a lovely stately old building. Caterina was so warm and friendly and immediately upgraded me to a very pretty en suite room, made even cosier by well placed lamps which were on as I entered the room. Even though it was June (but a cold evening), the coal fire was lit in the cosy sitting/dining room. Again, in the morning, a coal fire and lamps on every table made the dining room cosy on a rainy day.
I stay in B+Bs a lot. Some are run down, and some are so posh I can't relax. Clifton House was perfect. I would go so far as to say it's the best I've ever stayed in - and fantastic value for money as well. Just waiting for another excuse to go to Newcastle so I can go back there.

My husband and an eldery friend have been coming to this Hotel for the last 13 years, 10 of those years under the present owners Catarina and John, we come every June for a Convention We have become really good friends with Catarina and John we are always made very welcome when we arrive and nothing is too much trouble for them. Even when we havn't been too well at different times Catarina has always been on hand to help in any way she can which is such a comfort.
We have seen over the years how they have steadily upgraded the hotel to a high standard,and we have always found the staff polite and friendly.
We also like the fact that the cooked breakfast is freshly cooked to order and you can have any combinatoin you like
It is also situated in a quiet safe area
We would recommend this Hotel to others,it must be good or we wouldn't keep coming back every year!!!!!!!

A very quiet hotel which offers a good filling breakfast. I was upgraded from a single to a double at no extra charge. It's out of the city centre, but not too far. The owner was very helpful and pointed me to a very good Indian restaurant in walking distance. I will come again.

All what you expect from Guest house and more. Lovely room, spacious and clean. Breakfast excellent and very generous.
Location is 5 min away from City Centre and similar to the airport which was great for me.
John is very friendly and helps a lot if you need direction or an early wake-up reminder.

Highly recommended

What a great find on Booking.Com. This hotel is out of the town centre and well worth a visit.
The owners are so friendly and welcoming and it is obvious they are very proud of their property and do everything within their power to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

The presentation of the hotel is beautiful from pulling on to the drive. The furnishings are very tasteful and our room, at the front of the property, was extremely comfortable and very peaceful.

You can easily get a bus into town from this hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed being away from the city centre because it was so quiet. The dining room is exquisite and breakfast well cooked, piping hot and delicious.

Would strongly recommend and will definitely return. It would be lovely to go back in the summer (ha, ha - it's now May!) and just sit and enjoy the garden. A fabulous find.

Room Tip: Our room was on the first floor, at the front of the property, overlooking the garden. I can't...

Friendly enough staff and hosts.
The location is in a sort of sketchy neighbourhood.
The Lobby and restaurant are really nice but the rooms don't match thatm -- pretty plain Jane.
The TV channels are poor.
If you're looking for Wi-Fi, forget it.
