Dorset Arms

When booking in staff didn't explain anything such as breakfast or checkout time.

I didn't feel comfortable having to walk into a crowded bar area to check into a room.

Booked to be close to family as thought this was a hotel.

Really it's just rooms over a bar noisy until 11:30. Then very quiet as it is in a housing estate. Mattress was uncomfortable poor breakfast service. Expected a bit more.

Little gem

Everything about our stay was excellent from the moment we arrived until we left.

The only issue we had, which I may say was rectified was that on arrival our room was cold athough the heating was on, I thought it was that perhaps the windows had been opened. We left our belongings and went out. When we returned at 5pm the room was cold and the heating was off. I went down and to be fair they put the heating on but the room and bathroom were too cold for me to have a shower before getting dressed for my function. The room did start to heat up overnight, but when it is 3c outside the heating needs to be on and each room controls it with the radiator.

Awesome and Friendly.

Lovely place well situated for ease of transport into town Great clean room good well stocked bar quiet area great staff and Governor Stan.

Stayed here a while back while in newcastle visiting an old friend locally and couldn't have wished for a better local friendly wee place. Couldnt do enough to make our stay more comfortable. Big parrot in a cage that you can have fun with too at the bar in all great stay and great locals will definitely be back.

Excellent Budget accommodation

The Dorset Arms is a great little number if you are visiting Newcastle.

It is very reasonable with very friendly staff and loveley locals. The food in Cinatras restuarant is very very good and the breakfast is brilliant.
