“A perfect day.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We recently had our Civil Partnership celebrations here. A small affair we had the "Norman Shaw" private room. The service we recieved was equal to many of the Michelin starred restaurants we've eaten in- it really could not have been better and certainly the best service we've had in the North East; proffesional, attentive and discrete.
We'd asked for certain things to ber provided upon our arrival, nothing was too much trouble.
The food was equally good, and the wine really excellent.
We booked a junior suite that evening and discovered that we'd been given the diabled access suite- the room was fine however the bathroom was not the standard I'd expect from a suite (no bath) the manager, however, was very helpful and changed out room to one with a better bathroom as well as providing us with free champange, again excellent service.
Breakfast the next day was equally good. I'd certainly recommend this hotel to anyone and we'll be eating here a lot more from now on. Well done and thank you for a wonderful day.

Stayed one night with friends and had a wonderful night with great food, wine and service.The room was comfortable and well presented. The meal we had in the restaurant was excellent; we ate from the fixed price menu at £28 a head and a bottle of wine for £24, pre dinner drinks ar £10, therefore with tip £50 a head, expensive but reasonable for a special night out. Our friends went a la carte and starters were £17 each and mains £26 a head and cheese £10, pudding £8.50.They agreed that the food was excellent but the portions were small and over expensive, they agreed that they would have been better on the fixed price menu.
Service was first class, at the table and in the bar/lounge where the waiter was knowledgeable and friendly.
The breakfast the next day, included in our overnight stay, was superb with a great choice including my favourite smokked salmon with scrambled eggs.

Will definately return albeit for another special occasion.t

This is our absolute favourite place to stay. After we had our wedding at the hotel earlier this year we have become very attached! The friendly atmosphere is welcoming yet always so professional. The standards are outstanding from the beautiful bedrooms to the fabulous restaurant to the attentive staff.
I have nothing but praise for this beautiful hotel and its fantastic staff. I would recommend it to anyone planning a celebration for 100, a quiet weekend for 2 and anything in between! A truly perfect venue

Room Tip: The suites in the new house are luxurious and spacious. Very peaceful.

This was a perfect place to have a special celebration. Everything about the weekend was first class from the minute we arrived. Everybody made us feel very welcome with nothing too much trouble. The rooms were fit for a king and the Great Hall, where we dined, was spectacular. The food and wine would be difficult to better anywhere in the world. Thank you to everyone involved for making this a perfect 60th Birthday - looking forward to returning for the next one !

This hotel surpassess all expectations. The rooms are really comfortable, especially the beds, and the service is first class. The food is excellent and the staff could not be nicer. I have absolutely nothing but praise for this hotel, it is well worth a stay.

The only thing to bear in mind is that it doesn't have a gym / pool but for a relaxing business or pleasure break I really con't fault it.

My daughter is at Uni in Newcastle, I look forward to seeing her and staying at Jesmond Dene House Hotel. It is lovely, with beautifully decorated rooms, comfortable and well appointed.
The breakfast is one of the best I have had anywhere, the most amazing spread of everything you
could possibly imagine and wish for. I have had dinner and lunch here too, both very good. the staff a friendly and efficient. Hope it it keeps its high standards and great qualities.

Room Tip: Modern rooms/mini suites in the annexe, very close by and more traditional rooms in main house.

From the warm friendly welcome as you walk through the door, friendly efficient staff and the most wonderful food!! We ate from the set menu it was perfect & only £28 for 3 courses excellent value. Cannot fault this venue well worth a visit for a special occasion.
