A good change

Having booked our stay at The Brighton, we were disappointed when we arrived to learn that the guest house (where we have stayed many times before) was unable to accommodate us in the ground floor room we had requested but that alternative accommodation had been arranged at Bentleys, a hotel just around the corner.

Upon our arrival at Bentleys, we received the normal warm Newcastle welcome and were shown to a beautiful and newly refurbished room - we erred the first guests to use the room and certainly could not complain at this change. We have always been happy with The Brighton but suspect that in future we will use Bentleys.

Cheap & Cheerful

This hotel was cheap and cheerful.

You get what you pay for. I thought the rooms were a bit dated. The beds were nice and the linen fresh and plentiful. Breakfast was ok. Egg, bacon sausage, beans and hash brown was served up along with toast, cereal and fruit Juice. The coffee was extremely weak and I couldn't drink it. The staff were friendly and accommodating. I would return to this hotel and recommend it to anyone working on a tight budget. It is alight.

Interview visit

The Brighton is a very warm and welcoming guest house with lots to offer.

The gentleman running it is very attentive and goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. About one mile from the town center, but it is all up hill so call a cab if you are in doubt. very comfortable rooms, low price and amazing breakfast service. Lovely woman making breakfasts, couldn't of done more. I highly recommend this place. Got the job to make it better...

Ticked all the boxes

Exactly what I expected.

Note that the laterooms website fails to include the fact that breakfast is included, so for £25 for a small single with breakfast, this was excellent value for money. It is also close enough to the city centre (just over 20 mins to get to the main train station) to be walkable.

Newcastle Weekender

This is a nice place.

Its not too far from St James Park and the pubs/clubs.

You can walk or if not its about £5 or £6 in cabs.

Comfortable and clean and perfect if you want a nice place to be for a while, rather than if you were going to be in the room all day.

Would DEF use again tho. Nice people and decent breakfast.
