Our stay at Jesmond Dene House
Was a bit mixed.
The hotel & grounds were gorgeous, our room had quite a beautiful view and we had been upgraded for free upon arrival. The price was also very reasonable for the type of accommodation.
The hiking area behind the hotel ( I'm not sure if they're part of the Jesmond dene grounds) were also beautiful. Waterfalls & stone bridges all of it free to explore.
Some of the staff were fantastic. One gentleman sat and talked with us for quite some time. Other members of staff we a bit brusk.
It felt like they couldn't get us out of there fast enough. I'm
Not sure if its because we weren't in posh fancy clothes, rather just shorts and a tee shirt, either way.. We found those select few to be rather unpleasant.
The other down side was the meal.
What we had tasted quite good, but value for your money was more or less nonexistent.
Over all our experience was nice, not perfect, but nothing ever is!
I would visit again if I ever find myself in Newcastle!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A grand house with contemporary style, a leafy setting near the heart of the city. Jesmond Dene House is neither a townhouse nor a country house hotel. It's simply 40 well-designed bedrooms and suites in a richly historic building offering understated luxury and rather good food. Overlooking the wooded valley of Jesmond Dene, the privately owned hotel guarantees peace, escapism and a refreshing change. Newcastle's city centre, however, is only a five-minute drive. The hotel recently received 4 red stars and the AA Hotel of the Year 2008-2009. ... more less
