I liked this place overall and could stay here again. It's very well located on the Esplanade about 5-7 minutes walk to the Metro and the seaside promenade, and 5 minutes from South Parade where there are still a few good nightclubs and bars for the weekend partying.
The family (: Paul, Louise and children :) are very pleasant, helpful and do a good job of dishing out breakfast each morning to all residents who're up in time.
Ambiance and decor are nice enough: I was pleased with the setting of the tables in the dining hall, the generally simple but pleasant set up of the bathrooms, bedrooms etc. I'd love to see the showers working and fixed so that they are stable on the shower stand. Increased heating at night would be nice because for people who're not used to climate in Geordie-land, it's fairly chilly sometimes even in the "summer" because temperatures range from 18C-13C and that's not exactly balmy. Winters have minimums around 3C. So it's just cool, cooler and cold in this area. I guess that's why Geordies are more easily able to wear summer clothing when most people are reaching for a thick jacket.
The rooms have coffee making facilities, some shelf / wardrobe space, a wash basin, small desk and chair and, obviously, a bed.
Housekeeping is pretty good, there's a pleasant lady who comes over every day between 10 a.m. and noon, and does a good job. I like the shortbread cookies that came with the daily allotment of instant coffee sachets.
Breakfast is pretty good i.e. cereals, orange & apple juice, milk, coffee/tea, toast, full English breakfast (: sausages, bacon, egg, beans, mushrooms too at times :). I was happy with it. Breakfast may be complimentary depending on your deal when booking.
Wi-fi was okay although I'd like to be more stable. Still acceptable though.
All in all, very good value for money on my deal. Recommended.
