I have just returned from the Jesmond Dene House and I cannot speak highly enough of it. I arrived after travelling from the airport which was about 15 minutes by taxi and the greeting I had from the staff was friendly and warm and they made me feel immediately at home.
I really did not want to leave the place after that. The breakfast menu is excellent, both continental and English and the quality of the food was first class. Also not just run of the mill choices, there were a few surprises which is nice to see.
The staff at this hotel must be the nicest I have come across. Nothing was too much trouble for anybody, from housekeeping to waiting staff. The standard of housekeeping are second to none with lots of attention to detail.
Morning coffee with the most sublime home made biscuits was the icing on the cake.
The food in the evening was delicious with a very popular restaurant within the hotel at very reasonable rates for the quality and service.
The room was lovely and we could hear the flow of the river from outside our room which was really restful and relaxing.
I happened to be visiting the Freeman hospital which is about a fifteen minute walk away and I think this is the closest hotel to the hospital.So my reason for visiting Newcastle was not the most pleasant but the Jesmond Dene House turned the experience into something very pleasant indeed.
In fact I think I have fallen just a little bit in love with the place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A grand house with contemporary style, a leafy setting near the heart of the city. Jesmond Dene House is neither a townhouse nor a country house hotel. It's simply 40 well-designed bedrooms and suites in a richly historic building offering understated luxury and rather good food. Overlooking the wooded valley of Jesmond Dene, the privately owned hotel guarantees peace, escapism and a refreshing change. Newcastle's city centre, however, is only a five-minute drive. The hotel recently received 4 red stars and the AA Hotel of the Year 2008-2009. ... more less
