...not so great if you are not. As a couple on a weekend break in August we perhaps should have expected weddings at the hotel, and indeed there was one on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so work around that AND the booming afternoon tea trade mainly taken by non-residents. As a hotel guest there really was nowhere to go, and at one wedding when my husband and I had found a quiet spot outside, we were shortly joined by a bride (she was absolutely lovely) and I felt we were intruding on her special day. Luckily our room (deluxe in a newer annexe to the hotel) was spacious, quiet and comfortable. We dined at the hotel on our first evening, which was outstanding, although the view from the conservatory was...wedding guests!! It is a very nice hotel in a very pretty part of Newcastle and I would certainly stay again - out of wedding season.
- 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
