Central and comfortable
The Lambton Arms is a large former coaching inn, centrally and conveniently placed on the town's main shopping street.
I don't think the barn-like open-plan bar, which can get noisy and busy, does the establishment any favours as regards appearance or atmosphere, and did not serve real ale while I was there. But the bedrooms upstairs are quiet, spacious, well-appointed and very comfortable, and the manager and all the staff I met were friendly, efficient and went out of their way to be helpful. The inn is a comfortable, competitively-priced and well-located base for anyone visiting Chester-le-Street (my home town many years ago) and recommended as such.
Have stayed here three times now, the most recent on our honeymoon.
It's a lovely hotel to stay in. Great value for money, great food and lovely staff. We love staying here when we are in the North East. Ideal location between Durham and Newcastle with very good transport links. 10/10
We stay here regularly when we visit the North East & always find good atmosphere, very friendly & accommodating staff.
Rooms are kept clean & tidy. One negative ref room 6 a it could do with a chest of drawers in there as storage wasn't as good as some of other rooms we have stayed in.
Ideal place to stay, near to Lumley Castle where we attended a friends wedding .
Ideal for a short stay in the center of town
Engagement Party Stay
We stayed at the hotel as we were having our engagement party in the upstairs function room (which was excellent from allowing us in and out to set the room up, to the lovely buffet & friendly staff & DJ).
We had an excellent night. The room was lovely for £40, although we had booked a £50 room on LateRooms.com the lad behind the bar said you charge the same prices for all rooms. Apparently on that night laterooms had mixed things up and we werent booked in. Luckily there was space and we were only charged £40, but i wouldn't have been happy if id paid 50 online then told its tenner cheaper to book direct with hotel so you might need to work on that for consistency. However lovely clean room comfy bed.would recommend and we will be in for food/drinks in the future.
Enormous rooms and very warm. Could do with a bit of an update, but incredible value for money. Would definitely stay again
very pleasant stay.
room was excellent as were the staff.
Does what it says on the tin
I have stopped here on numerous occasions due to its location.
i was a bit miffed to see the price on a saturday has gone from £40 to £55 per double. when i asked why we were told as it has been refurbished, however on inspection all thats been done is new carpet a bit of redecorating, a new tv & lampshades ...the bathroom in my room No.6 is the same. However i still would recomend it as its value for money,clean,good breakfast & friendly staff
Old fashioned traditional hotel, lovely large rooms, comfy bed and great bathroom.
Only slight downside was street noise around 2-3am but this wouldnt have been a problem if I hadnt insisted on sleeping with the window open. Lovely hotel with a warm welcome and great breakfast
