“great "over a pub" stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

We just dropped in to find a room, the bartender and other staff were great. We pushed to get a sea view room (the young lady seemed to be surprised we wanted one!) It was wonderful, with windows looking out to sea, only a flight of stairs to both supper and breakfast, and locals playing great music in the pub at night. We really enjoyed our stay, and our conversation with Frank and Brenda in the morning. (With good advice on where to stay the next night) The room was basic, all we needed, and the bathroom was clean, large, and new.

Room Tip: I'd go for a sea view every time!

This is a great place to stay in Newcastle. Very reasonable price, great food and lovely staff - friendly and very helpful. Room was fine - very clean with nice bathroom, tea & coffee facilities and flat screen tv and very good music on the Saturday night. No complaints at all and would love to stay here again.

It was a little difficult in making a booking by email but this was more than offset by the freindliness of all the staff. The rooms were clean and sunny and the short walk to the city center was most enjoyable with the sea breeze on your right and the Mourne Mountains on your left

Room Tip: Don't carry big or heavy suitcases as the stairs are narrow

My wife and I ate dinner here. The food was fresh, the staff were genuinely friendly, the view of Newcastle harbour is great and the price was right (they have a good senior citizen deal). We didn't feel hurried - we even sat and read books at the end of the meal!

If you want a great meal in Newcastle and great hospitality - this is the place to go! Didn't stay here but would definitely consider it. Staff are so friendly and nothing is a bother to them. View is amazing!!

#5 Family Hotel in Newcastle

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Our property is on the South Promenade at Newcastle Harbour: The harbour is among the most richly historic areas of Newcastle. Home to many longstanding families, the area around the pier has a long association with the sea. The origins of the current harbour date back to the 1820's, when a new pier was created by Lord Annesley to replace the old one. One of the chief functions of the pier was to act as a loading point for Mourne granite, which was quarried in the hills above the harbour. If you stand on the shorter arm of the pier and look up towards the mountain you can see a path cut through the trees leading to the now defunct quarry on Millstone Mountain. In the last century, stone was quarried here and dispatched down this track to the harbour by railtrucks. It was loaded on to ships (known as Stone Boats) and used to build docks in Belfast and Liverpool and the courthouse gaol in nearby Downpatrick ... more   less
