            the bathroom was very old and not nice at all- one on the shower was a struggle to turn off the dial was so rusted

          • Older travelers

            Convenient location nice surroundings

            The food at dinner was extremely poor quality and served cold.No apology given for this when asked.

            Location, setting, choice of evening menu. Reception staff very helpful. Beautiful internal features.

            Shabby bed covers, breakfast was poor value for money The swimming pool could be made so much better --- ants along the top side and dead in the water. Wicker furniture on patio was dire! More investment needed. Very tired looking hotel with so much potential.

            Very comformtable bed. Room as everything you need for a business trip.

            You have to pay for wi-fi

            Room was comfortable, clean and included all the basics. Very thoughtful room allocation, we have a 1 yr old and we were placed on the top floor as far from the lift as possible for minimal noise. Sadly we didn't use the leisure club but excellent to have this facility for the price. Staff efficient.

            Communal areas, stair wells and corridors are a bit tired. Made us worry what the room would be like but we were pleasantly surprised.

            The Staff were some of the best we had ever met and the hotel would be at a loss to lose any of them. The Location was perfect for the whole of the North East of England and you could travel to numerious Historical, Modern and Shopping locations quickly using the hotel as your base or you could just chill out or play glof. Dog Friendly to, this is a Plus

            Found the Beds too firm/hard for our liking.

            Lovely quiet room in the cottage. Fantastic breakfast. Helpful reception staff

            Only one towel in room no plug sockets next to bed. Poor hair dryer for my wife!

            7.4

            Spacious rooms Friendly staff Nice rooms

            Lack of choice at breakfast for non fried food

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            Good sized room and large comfortable bed. Although not used, the on site facilities. Public areas traditional and relaxing. Availability of good meals, as room service, enjoyed .Very reasonably priced. Appears to be comprehensive CCTV survailence of car parking areas which is apparently a problem in that area

            Parts, such a corridor carpets and lifts have become tired and could do with some improvement although functional.

            The hotel felt under-funded and "tatty" compared with the usual hotels that I stay in such as Village and even Premier Inn. There was a long walk outside to an annex room where the trouser press was broken and bathroom "old fashioned.” The food was mediocre, particularly the breakfast where the bacon appeared to have been cooked hours in advance. Dinner was pub grub standard and expensive. No member of staff enquired if I enjoyed the stay and there were no “feedback forms” on view. The overall impression was of an overpriced hotel whose management had a complacent attitude to their customers. I recommend that the general manager stay for a night in the Premier Inn in Newcastle centre to experience good customer care and well prepared food.

            We had a lovely stay. The breakfast was lovely but we went to the nearby bridge inn restaraunt for dinner, which is highly recommended. I would definitely recommend paying for a premium room, ours was very large and warm.

            Comfortable and clean. The room was very nice.

            Some of the hotel decor/corridors/etc were very tired and worn looking. Not a major complaint but I was apprehensive about the condition of the room as a result. I need not have worried however as the room and bathroom were excellent.

          • Single

            Friendly staff, comfortable bed & clean room. For me these are the things that matter most.

            Decoration of corridors and staircases looked tired. Towels were past their best

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            I thought the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, especially the Receptionists. The rooms were comfortable and the Hotel was in an ideal position for us.

            Breakfast was a little disorganised i.e. twice shown to tables that hadn't been cleared.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            Relaxing next to the log fire.

            We were asleep in our room at 8 am and someone entered the room with a key without knocking, then left. We felt uneasy as we didn't know who it was. We reported this to reception when we left and they said it would just have been housekeeping. We didn't think this was good enough to be disturbed at this time in the morning.
