Nice atmosphere!

I have limited mobility, the owner carried my bags to my room, explained where to find everything and took an order for my breakfast, breakfast was great and when I was ready to leave he carried my bags to the car.

I didn't feel at all uncomfortable travelling alone, there was a very nice atmosphere, I have recommended the place to colleagues who will also be in the are from time to time, accommodation is pretty basic but that was all I needed. Would definitely go again should I be in the area!

Brilliant stay!

My sister and I really enjoyed our stay at the A1 Summerville Guest House.

We had a free breakfast included in our stay which was delicious!. Paul was extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. I would definitely stay here again if I was returning to the area and would highly recommend the guest house.

Nice B&B away from centre

B&b is a bit plonked in middle of a housing estate.

Clean and tidy. Very friendly people. Breakfast well cooked and good quality (though sausage very thin and not so nice and no beans!!) there's 4 or 5 pubs round the corner including a wetherspoons if you want to stay local, or a taxi into the entre will cost around £8.00.

good quiet location if you have a car to get into Newcastle

This is a semi-detached house In Whickham, quite close to the A1 by the metrocentre turnoff, and about 15 minutes drive from the centre of Newcastle.

I understand there are restaurants within walking distance if wished. Parking is on the street, just off the main road. Paul was very helpful and did a good breakfast. The room was spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds, and a bath. A couple of small points for improvement: the towels had seen better days - time for replacement - and the radiator could do with a lick of paint, but otherwise a quiet and comfortable stay.

Friendly, excellent value

An unexpected visit to the hospital meant I didn't get breakfast.

The proprietor was really friendly, couldn't do enough to help. The breakfast room has facilities like TV, ironing board etc for guests- and a phone book which was very handy for finding a local taxi at 5.20 on Sunday morning. The bed was comfy and the room was very clean. Basic but up to date fixtures and fittings, plenty of hot water on Saturday evening. Brilliant value for money, strongly recommended.

I stayed here following the other reviews on Late rooms and would throughly recommend it.Paul was really welcoming and helpful throughout my entire stay.

The room was clean as was the ensuite. The area was quiet yet close to the A1 for travellers. Paul recommended some nice Pubs to eat in and his local knowledge was excellent. The range of breakfast choice was far more than more expensive places that I looked at and also delicious . I throughly recommend this B&b and if I return to the area I will certainly stay again.
