Campanile Hotel Washington
Ranked #6 of 6 Hotels in Washington
Reviewed August 20, 2010

We booked two days and extended our stay to four days because we slept so well and the rooms were so quiet. We also had our small dog with us and he hears little noises in the night and gets upset --However, these rooms are each set down their own little hallway past the bathrooms and then the bedroom is seperated by another door. So entry door --->hallway-->bedroom door = very quiet indeed. We all slept well.
The beds were fine and no complaints there. There is a place outside the reception area where you can walk your dog. Also, you are located in a quiet estate where you can also take walkies. For distance, take the long estate walkway on the verge towards the industrial estate. We left dog in the car, while we took breakfast and dinners in the Campanile Restaurant. Was nice after sightseeing all day. Nearby amenities: Newcastle, beaches and Souter Lighthouse. You can't beat the value and price of the rooms: only 47.00 ! Highlights: Free Parking, Dogs Allowed, Restaurant on premises, WIFI

Stayed here for 3 nights for business primarily because I really struggled to find anywhere closer to Chester Le Street where I wanted to be and that was within budget.
It's fine accommodation wise although perhaps a little overpriced at £51.95 for room only.
It has its own restaurant which I didn't use, there are other limited options in the local area, the Toby Carvery and Chevys Sports Bar.
The staff were all very helpful.
The room could have done with another socket to allow phone charging and laptop use at the same time as having the TV on in the background, everything else in the room is hardwired. Check laterooms.com for deals at the last minute, thats the main reason I chose this particular hotel as well as the one cheaper night brought down the overall cost.

This place is long overdue for refurbishment. Although it has "no smoking" notices everywhere, it has that musty smell that comes from old cigarette fumes. The room carpet was stained, thin and sticky and the decor was dated and unattractive. Curiously, the shaver electricity point is very close to the wc pan - I wonder whose idea that was.

On the plus side, the bedroom and bathroom were a good size and reasonably furnished and equipped for a short stay in a hotel of this class but it really does need some money spent on it.

We stayed two nights at this hotel whilst attending my mother's funeral.
Good points first - the staff were very friendly and helpful; the food was good, both for evening meal and breakfast; there was free Wi-Fi access, and it was cheap - from £47 a twin room a night (excluding breakfast).
The main problem with this hotel is that it has not been well-designed. There are no proper vents in the bathrooms, so this means there is nowhere for the steam to escape. Even opening the window, (which lets in the constant noise of the adjacent motorway, so I can see why most people do not do it) does not enable the water vapour to escape. Result - mould everywhere, and not just in the bathroom. The first room we were given stank of mould the moment we opened the door; and there was black mould surrounding the window, which is located on the far side of the room, away from the bathroom. So we went straight back to reception and swapped rooms, the one we were given was better, but the shower was broken and spurted water all over the place. After speaking to reception next day it was changed, I suspect for one from another room; at least it made the shower work well. We noticed the smell of mould the first morning, especially from the sink overflow. My husband suffers from allergies and found his breathing was affected during the stay, presumably by the mould spores. There was a lot of dust, and visible cowebs; and I'm sure that this did not help either.
Upon leaving I reiterated the problem with ventilation to the reception staff, so I wonder if they feed the information upwards.This is a large hotel chain wth a number of hotels in UK; so I hope that they can find some money to make the changes required. We would not consider going there again, otherwise.

We had booked to stay for two nights but booked out after one.
Rooms basic and comfortable, Great shower, rather drab interior.
Restaurant very expensive, bar was closed due to a private function.
Dodgy people sitting outside the entrance or the hotel drinking cheap beer/cider

Having stayed in Campanile's in France we decided to give this a go as we only needed somewhere to sleep as we would be arriving late and leaving early. It follows the Campanile formula - basic with a comfy bed, decent sized bathroom, tea and coffee facilities, tv, wifi, hairdryer but the room is small. Check in very easy and helpful - our sat nav didn't recognise the postcode and the lady on reception was able to give clear directions. Bargain at £30 for the night.

Rooms are dated.

Room could have been cleaner.

Bed uncomfortable.

Could hear traffic from the A1.

Could hear everything from adjoining rooms and corridor.

Excellent check in staff.

Never ate there so could not comment.

Would I stay again, probably not... but I'm not complaining as I got a 3 for 2 offer it came in at around £30 a night.
