Most everything has been said previously - great staff, great beer, pub food, clean quiet motel style rooms, plenty of parking and handy for various things in the North-East. It was way cheaper than the city centre hotels and much more pleasant. I am not sure I would want to stay at the location for more than a couple of nights, and it would be difficult without a car. The continental breakfast was a bit of a disappointment. The bed coverings were a bit odd and heavy, but we found some blankets and were able to make up a comfortable bed, although it did have a plastic cover on the mattress.
Overall, I would probably stay again if I am in the area.
