“does the job!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

stayed at this hotel for one night with my daughter for university open day , rooms are basic but does the job, was given a 10% discount card for drinks which we decided to use for our coffees. the check in and check out process was prompt and the overall stay was quite pleasant.
Tip: if you need a good night sleep ask for rooms in the back as the front rooms can be quite noisy.

I came to the hotel with my parents who were visting from london.
We were greated by a friendly receptionist and directed to our room.
The room was extremely good value for money. It was clean and all amneties needed were present. My parents left happy with their stay.
We then were given 10% discounts cards for the bar which was lovely and all the staff were poilte and friendly.
I would definately go back to the whites hotel and bar blanc and recommend it to others.

Room Tip: the front of the hotel is better so as to avoid music from the bar

Never in my life have I written a review but on our recent stay here had to worn people how BAD this place is, its smelly, creeky, small, shower didnt work, had no bath, tv didnt work, door for bathroom was literally falling off (didnt actually fit thr frame), the net curtain was black, will say that the towels and bed was clean but thats all, the toilet had no flush it was a blob of masking that u had to touch yuk, also all tiles on floor in bathroom were cracked, all walls were smeared with dirt and carpet was horrendous, we had a groupon deal for 2 night but checked out after 1st night as couldnt of stayed there for 2, the meal included in the groupon meal was ok and the bar blanc underneath was nice and modern but they really to knock the hotel downn start again, the staff were lovley but are clearly embarrassed of the hotel as they must of asked us 10 times if our room was ok, we didnt complain to the staff as its not there fault, and couldn't of got a refund anyway as bought through Groupon. Please people DONOT stay here, you have been warned (for our second night we stayed over the road at The New Northumbria which as stunning and highly recommended) this was a little honeymoon break which we will not forget!! (Oh and andthe hairdryer and tvs pat testing ran out years ago)

Room Tip: Go to the New Northumbria over road

Good Hotel in a great location with very friendly staff. Enjoyed a 2 Night stay on the weekend of the Great North Run which is within walking distance of the starting area. Enjoyed a nice breakfast at the Hotel in the morning followed by a few drinks at night in the bar. Several bars and restaurants nearby on Osbourne road with a great Atmosphere. Definitely would stay again.

Very basic badly decored little room.Extremly minimalistic.Broken furniture.shower was hot and cold with no pressure.Hallways stunk of piss.The price of £80 a night is nothing far short of daylight robbery.Absolutely disgraceful.Wouldnt gave this this room to my worst enemy.
Only plus side was the staff in the bar were honest and friendly.

My husband and I stayed after purchasing a Groupon deal for our wedding anniversary, when we pulled up into the car park we should have realised then that this wasn't the type of hotel for us.

The outside of the back of the hotel was shabby to say the least, the carpet in the corridor leading from the hotel entrance to reception was sticking to our shoes and smelt awful. The young lady on reception was very pleasant and helpful, things were looking up!

The room numbering system was confusing and we found it difficult to find our room as our room number wasn't listed on the plaque on the door advising which rooms were on this floor.

Our room was basic, cramped and the floor was filthy.

Night 1 extremely noisy in the corridor sounded as though other guests were running up and down the corridors worst for wear due to Happy Hour next door. Also at 2.30 ish trouble outside in the car part, just outside our window, from guests who were locked out.

Night 2 was even noisier that night 1, very drunken guests getting lost and hammering on the wrong doors wanting to be let in, this continued well into the early hours. When I spoke with reception the next morning to check out they seemed genuinely concerned that we'd had an awful experience. I was asked why I hadn't contacted the night porter to raise concern earlier, I asked on what telephone was I expected to have used as there wasn't a telephone in the room and thinking about it now I don't remember there being a contact list in the room either.

The deal included a 2 course meal for 2 with wine - Oh boy to say the meal was basic is an understatement.

I appreciate we only paid £65.00 for 2 for 2 nights but when the offer advised that you've saved 70% you expect that there will be some standards.

There are so many quality hotels in the area I wished we'd done our homework and not rushed into buying a Groupon offer - Lesson learnt.

We (myself and 3 friends) stayed here as part of a Groupon deal for my birthday. Was a bit apprehensive after reading the reviews and seeing the price (£65 for a double room, 2 course meal, free glass of wine for 2 nights) but I had nothing to fear. The rooms were clean, basic but clean and what you needed for a girls nights or two away. Staff were friendly. The only let down was the food. Food was extremely poor should would advise not to eat there whatsoever, its not worth taking the risk!! There are plently of decent eating places, pubs and restaurants surrounding so went there instead where the food was extremely reasonably priced and yummy. Car Park behind for free parking was a little tricky to maneouve but cant complain. Overall had a brilliant birthday weekend just dont eat in the restaurant although they did give us an additional free stay for the poor food.
