“Seans Stag Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

The Hansen is an ideal stay for stag and hen weekends, Meg greeted us with a welcome speech and a smile, catering to our every whim, The rooms were clean and tidy and great for what we wanted, near the city centre, shop across the road and I have to mention the great breakfast...Do not stay here if its a romantic weekend away, this is what it says on the tin,a bed and breakfast for stag and hen parties. I would and will recommend THE HANSEN HOTEL to all my fiends.

If you are traveling alone or as a couple and want a quiet evening, make sure you call ahead of time to check if stag or hen parties are booked because it would not be possible to sleep with how easily sound carries through the doors and walls. Free parking will be an issue, because the currently empty lot next door where you can now park is getting new tenants. Breakfast was not all that great, but not something to pay too much attention to considering the affordability of the nightly rate and location. 10 minute walk or less to center of the city and an amazing Chinese takeaway spot just 5 around the corner called Runwell. The patio outside the hotel is a good spot to have a meal or a glass of wine. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the kindness we encountered. The name on tripadvisor is spelled wrong; it's "Hansen".

A great wee hotel, ideal for stag or hen parties. We were warmly greeted by the great Landlady who is full of life and information, the rooms are comfortable and clean and the whole place is ideal for a base to have time out in Newcastle. Breakfasts are excellent too!

The Metro is a few mins walk away or Meg will give you numbers for Taxis.

Thanks again.

Been on many a stag night and the hotel usually get fed up with the antics. Not at the Hanson hotel is amazing! as long as the place doesnt get wrecked, you will have the best time of your life, you will prob meet other stags and hen parties aswell which adds to the mayhem.

We will be back. Thanks had a great weekend

The only gay (stag) in the village and ouch me head still hurts!

20 minute walk from The Gate in the centre. Everything you need for a stag is provided; single beds (fresh sheets put on every morning) fully functional and clean shower and toilet facilities. Even a mini fridge to chill your beers. Meg, the landlady, will fill you with recommendations tailored to you (cheap drinks, strip bars, taxi firms) and understands how to run a hotel designed for stags and hens. Recommend this place for a stag in Newcastle!
