Clayhanger Guest House
Reviewed May 12, 2014

We stayed for two nights Easter weekend and had a warm welcome and a comfortable stay -- the accommodation is well situated for walking into the town, and there was car parking round the back of the property. The cooked breakfast was good. There was some refurb work going on when we arrived but it didn't affect us.

I returned to stay at Clayhanger having used it before. We have always enjoyed our stays and the new owners made us equally welcome. The refurbishments have been well done and the lovely breakfast, friendly service and helpful tips on where to go out to eat with older people who didn't feel up to the walk into the main town were great. We will be trying to book up again for our next visit to our daughter who is at the university. We feel really looked after at Clayhanger and would recommended it to everybody - we like it's quirky layout and lots of finishing touches that you don't get at other guest houses.

Room Tip: We've always had good rooms!

I stayed at the Clayhanger for 4 weeks whilst working at the local hospital. The owners were very welcoming and polite, and the breakfast was very good. The single rooms are very small but clean and comfortable. Slightly more expensive than expected for the area, particularly for the single rooms. All-in-all a pleasant stay.

The B&B is recently refurbished and the new owners Dave and Andy are warm and welcoming. Rooms are clean and tastefully decorated with all the amenities one requires. Crisp fresh sheets of top hotel Standard. I recommend the staffs oatcakes for breakfast cooked by Dave.

We stayed one night in three rooms at Clayhanger. We wanted double rooms, but they only had two twins and a single free. One of the twins was converted into a double and my sister got her single opposite from the shared bathroom as her room was not en-suite. All very helpful.

The rooms are quite small, but just fine for a short stay. The shower in our room worked well, though you will end to bring shampoo or ask downstairs.

Some of the rooms are quite close to the stairs, so might be quite loud. We slept very well, but one of our party had quite noisy neighbours, so maybe some of the rooms have thin walls?

Breakfast was good with friendly service. The bacon and coffee seemed to be of good quality.

I am staying here whilst working on a placement at UHNS (hospital), easy walking distance. Parking available here.
The room is well furnished, a very comfortable bed and sink in room, it is all very clean and comfortable. The shower in the shared bathroom is excellent. Wi fi is good even on the top floor.

But more important are the people - Andy, Dave & Margaret are so hospitable, welcoming and helpful, they make you feel right at home. Breakfast is great and home made jams etc. delicious

The Clayhanger is a relatively new acquisition and they are upgrading things on an on going basis.

It is easy walking distance to Newcastle centre and plenty of buses from bus station there.

All in all I would thoroughly recommend the Clayhanger to anyone considering staying in this area
