We have stayed at the Jesmond dene house hotel Many times. We love everything about it, the setting the atmosphere the friendly attentive staff and of course the superb rooms.
We had the pleasure of meeting the hotel manager Scott who we were equally impressed with.
We usually stay in room three as I love the main part of the house the rooms are very modern and individual yet the have so much character.
Afternoon tea is a must, and the breakfast is fab, we always chose the English breakfast although you can still help yourself to the extensive buffet that consists of : smoked salmon,variety of fruit,selection of cheese,chutneys, celery and meats not to mention the pastries, & muffins. You can also help your self to fresh pure orange juice or champagne.
The decor in the entire house is fab, comfortable and of a high standard.
The interior designer did a great job.
The city centre is about 4-5 miles away in a taxi and the hotel are more than happy to organise one for you. We tend to pop into Jesmond as it has many eaterys and bars it reminds us of some of the towns/villages here in Cheshire such as Alderley Edge, Knusford or Hale. The people are extra friendly and always pleasant. There are some lovely boutiques as well if you fancy treating yourself or your partner.
I must admit we have not had chance to dine in the hotel Restaurant, apart from afternoon tea/breakfast although I have heard rave reviews and we will be doing so during our next visit for sure!
If you prefer to eat out we love Louis and the new manager Tom is excellent as is the chef. We also loved the Cherry Tree, they are both first class.
The hotel rooms have everything you could ask for and the beds/matresses are very comfortable. The Arran aromatic toiletries are so lovely we purchased
Some online for home.
I would suggest If you prefer a room with character That you kindly request a room in the main house , we have stayed in the modern junior suites and they are spacious and equally gorgeous but obviously they are new and they don't have the same character.
All the staff at the hotel are excellent,Ryan was very helpful as were the reception and restaurant staff.
There seemed to be an event on during our stay however this did not effect the service we recieved.
The hotel is 5 star quality without being stuffy or overbearing.
We have never taken our children although we have seen a few children who were well behaved and not seen to be an inconvineace. So the hotel is definitely family friendly.
We would consider ourselves well traveled and have stayed in many 5 star hotels and the Jesmond dene House hotel is well on par with the best.
