We recently stayed at the Bowes Incline for two nights as we had to travel to the area for a funeral. Even though the stay wasn't under the happiest of circumstances it was very pleasant. The staff and chef were very friendly and extremely helpful, the rooms were clean, well decorated and equipped, comfortable and the walk ins showers were...

Great staff, lovely food, real ale was superb, bathroom clean and modern, beds comfortable and free WiFi. Why the low score? Room was boiling hot on entry, Mold around windows, WiFi showing 1 bar and then disappeared randomly. The hotel needs modernising and freshening up. Ok if just the one night and has great potential. It's just tired, and needs...

Popped in with the missus after a spot of shopping. We decided for a quarter pounder and proper chips and a hot beef stottie and gravy and a side of onion rings. Washed down with a pint and a G&T. All was lovely and I was impressed. Evening menu was extensive and we will be back to try it out...

Decided to stay at The Bowes Incline with my partner again, simply because it is a comfortable and very pleasent hotel with a marvellous bar/restaurant. The food is renowned for it's high standards and the staff are very friendly, attentive and professional. It is pretty remote, so a car is needed unless you want to use a taxi, but we...

Stayed here for two nights. Room was nice, clean and spacious. Food in the hotel was excellent with a fantastic choice. Service very good. The only downside was finding it as our sat nag took us somewhere totally different. The postcode on website was wrong and even when we got the one off their own business card it took us...

Another great find in Gateshead. 4 of us for Sunday lunch. We went for 4 different roasts. Beef, lamb, pork & turkey. All came with Yorkshire pudding. All were very substantial, the meat was tender and cooked to perfection. Nice selection of vegetables & stuffings. Staff are very helpful and pleasant and made us feel comfortable right from the start....

Before I booked this hotel I read the reviews and I must say they were highly overrated. What this is, is an average old hotel/pub in the middle of nowhere. The rooms are old and dark (bathroom is really dark). But having said all the negative I will also mention the positive. The Wi-Fi worked really well. The pub is...

Pleasant, clean hotel close to the A1, convenient for Newcastle but surrounded by green fields for walking and exploring. Restaurant on site for breakfast and dinner if you don't want to go further afield.
