“Disappointed with the overall cleanliness of the room”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

I stayed in room 15 last week. I was disgusted as soon as i walked in the room. The shower was filthy. The walls were dirty. The radiator looked like it hadn't even been wiped in a very long time and it held remnants of what looked like someones throat they'd coughed up =( The window sill was covered in dirt, god only knows what the stain was on the wall, it looked like blood but it looked like it had been there a long time, it may have discoloured with time.
A curly hair on the bathroom door, (seriously)!?
Mold and dirt all over the shower basin & glass doors which made it impossible to even use the shower.
Even the kettle had a layer of dust and sticky smears and finger prints all over it. The bedside table was covered in dust, enough that i was able to create a face of sorts in it.
The owners were lovely people but they are seriously lacking in the cleaning skills that are needed when you have paying guests.
I would not stay in this hotel again.

Avoid this "hotel" at all costs. According to local taxi drivers this place is well known for being the 2nd worst hotel in Newcastle. The booking was made as part of a hen party package, so watch out as you may end up staying here without intending to. When we arrived we found we weren't staying in the actual hotel but what appeared to be a house next door. On walking into our room, the stench of damp immediately hit us, a fly even dropped down dead in front of us, he couldn't take it anymore! The bathroom was probably the worst part of the experience. The water options in the shower were either scorching or freezing, so unless you have the skin of a Rhino, then you'll probably be disappointed. In taking a shower you'll also find that this is probably the first clean the unit has had in several weeks as lumps of mould leave the tiles and down the plug hole. There was also a sewage pipe exposed through a big hole in the bathroom floor. Needless to say, that was the quickest shower I've had on record. I've stayed in Newcastle plenty of times and there is plenty of reasonably priced accommodation available which is like the Ritz in comparison to this dump. This place is a disgrace. I wouldn't stay here again if you paid me.

Greeting by woman owner shouting at us not to let the dogs out! ( guess they were running for freedom)! Smell in reception horrid, dusty place.Room for four of us - never seen a hoover, or wiping of furniture/paintwork. Bathroom just about passable - no soap in dispensers. . The most disgusting chair on landing - looked like every excrement possible staining it. The beds.........! oh my god - unclean linen - stained, hairs, bugs - thankfully we spotted this and raided linen room on return from night out and took lots of clean looking sheets to cover pillows and quilts. Breakfast was suprisingly ok. Strange staff - makes Faulty Towers look like the Hilton!!!! Heard owner boasting of recent refurbishments (she must be on magic mushrooms!). But we had a fab weekend in Newcastle -loved it - will definately go back but wont be difficult to find a better place to stay. If you are booked here - ASK TO CHECK YOUR ROOM BEFORE YOU PAY - WHICH YOU WILL BE ASKED FOR WITHIN 30 SECONDS OF ENTERING THE DOOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: book somewhere else

looking back at previous review, we were very worried about what to expect. The owner was pleasant and informed us that we had the house next door. We found it very clean, each room was en-suite and acceptable for what we needed. Having the whole house to ourselves meant that we didn't disrupt the other hotel guests and were able to have a good time without disturbing anyone else. Unfortunately, we didn't make breakfast after sampling the joys of Newcastle night life! All in all, we were all happy with the hotel and felt it didn't warrant the previous reviews.

Great hotel that 6 of us stayed in for a weekend hen do. The staff were very helpful and breakfast was amazing, i would recommend this hotel as it is very near the city bars and clubs. Excellent metro and bus service.

Bathroom was very modern and the room standards were super clean.

We are booking to see a performance at the sage and will definitely be staying here again.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the flat screen tv this was a excellent room.
