5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

We have stayed at the Jesmond dene house hotel Many times. We love everything about it, the setting the atmosphere the friendly attentive staff and of course the superb rooms.

We had the pleasure of meeting the hotel manager Scott who we were equally impressed with.

We usually stay in room three as I love the main part of the house the rooms are very modern and individual yet the have so much character.

Afternoon tea is a must, and the breakfast is fab, we always chose the English breakfast although you can still help yourself to the extensive buffet that consists of : smoked salmon,variety of fruit,selection of cheese,chutneys, celery and meats not to mention the pastries, & muffins. You can also help your self to fresh pure orange juice or champagne.

The decor in the entire house is fab, comfortable and of a high standard.
The interior designer did a great job.

The city centre is about 4-5 miles away in a taxi and the hotel are more than happy to organise one for you. We tend to pop into Jesmond as it has many eaterys and bars it reminds us of some of the towns/villages here in Cheshire such as Alderley Edge, Knusford or Hale. The people are extra friendly and always pleasant. There are some lovely boutiques as well if you fancy treating yourself or your partner.

I must admit we have not had chance to dine in the hotel Restaurant, apart from afternoon tea/breakfast although I have heard rave reviews and we will be doing so during our next visit for sure!

If you prefer to eat out we love Louis and the new manager Tom is excellent as is the chef. We also loved the Cherry Tree, they are both first class.

The hotel rooms have everything you could ask for and the beds/matresses are very comfortable. The Arran aromatic toiletries are so lovely we purchased
Some online for home.
I would suggest If you prefer a room with character That you kindly request a room in the main house , we have stayed in the modern junior suites and they are spacious and equally gorgeous but obviously they are new and they don't have the same character.

All the staff at the hotel are excellent,Ryan was very helpful as were the reception and restaurant staff.
There seemed to be an event on during our stay however this did not effect the service we recieved.

The hotel is 5 star quality without being stuffy or overbearing.

We have never taken our children although we have seen a few children who were well behaved and not seen to be an inconvineace. So the hotel is definitely family friendly.

We would consider ourselves well traveled and have stayed in many 5 star hotels and the Jesmond dene House hotel is well on par with the best.

We only stayed one night...should have stayed longer. Fabulous hotel nestled in lovely gardens, within easy reach of Newcastle city centre. We were made to feel so welcome, the service was excellent. We ate in the main restaurant - even the standard, house menu was delicious. We loved the interior design - very eclectic, stylish yet relaxing and comfortable. Felt like an exclusive retreat. Easy to see why this place is in the top 25 hotels in the UK.

This was our second stay at Jesmond Dene, and once again we enjoyed the ambience and comfort the house provides. Everything about the place is effortless pleasure: the staff have got it just right. Dining is every bit as good as you'd expect; special mention must be made of what must be one of the best breakfast presentations in the country.

So: well done to the management and staff - you're professional and you're getting it right. If only other hotels could do half as well....

Suggestion for improvement: the lighting in the bedroom could be better.

Delicious sandwiches, homemade fresh scones, fabulous cakes! This was the best afternoon tea I've ever had. Jesmond Dene House is a lovely place to visit if you have a special occasion to celebrate. The hotel is beautiful, the service is excellent and the food is superb, highly recommended.

Stayed 2 nights. Very good food and service as expected. All of the staff had mastered polite without being obsequious. The location is superb - a country house style near a city centre. I think the room rate is comparable with others of it's ilk hence my average rating,

Where to start? From the beautiful setting on the edge of the Dene; the historic public areas and bar; our room (especially the gorgeous airy bathroom with extra deep bath); the lovely restaurant; the beautifully-presented and tasty food, and - particularly - the friendly, professional, considerate staff - this hotel shone. The extra little touches and the wonderful staff made it a really special stay for us, and we're already thinking of an excuse to treat ourselves again.

My husband and I staying for one night in January this year, the whole experience - staff and service was superb. Whilst the Jesmond Dene is a luxury hotel is has none of the "stuffiness" of others we have stayed in, we were made to feel at home. Our family joined us for dinner which was amazing... relaxing and the quality of the food and presentation was second to none.
Overall I have to say it's the little things that most people don't notice that make the Jesmond Dene so special.
If I have one small criticism our bedroom was beautiful... but too hot and we couldn't cool it down, but I'm sure if we had asked someone would have rushed to help..
