Ok hotel, rooms starting to look tired as is reception and bar/restaurant.
Bar shut at 23:00. I would pay a few more £ next time and stay in one of the other 2 hotels you drive past to get there.
Average hotel at an average price, typical stop over accomodation
Overall, the experience was a pleasant one, the staff were excellent, the food decent, and the room was clean.
However, the room decor was a bit tired, the bathroom extractor was not working, the tiles very faded and washed out. The room itself only had two power sockets, one on the floor by the bathroom door and one under the window, that seemed poor for the type of hotel this is. It is geared as a travelodge or travelinn type accomodation, very functional, not a holiday type hotel. The breakfast buffet featured all the usual fare however the cooked breakfast was a set plate, not a hot buffet, but was well cooked. With the road links its a good base for a few days as I stayed, but not a location as a holiday destination.
Worst hotel ever
When we arrived they had no room for us it was just lucky that the lady behind us in the queue was cancelling her room so we were given her disabled room it was also a good job that I took my confirmation from late rooms with me to prove that I booked it it was an awful dark dirty bedroom with only one plug socket so you couldn't even plugged the kettle on because it was halfway up the wall
We were very pleased to be able to take our two little dogs and happy to pay an extra £5 each per night.
The Hotel is good value for money and close to Gateshead and Newcastle. We did not use the Bar or Restaurant so cannot comment although the menu looked good. Good size bed also.
clean and tidy room, fair value, would use again
The hotel was a last minute booking due to cancellation of previous hotel after a bad storm.
The cost was the cheapest I could find at short notice, which was the deciding factor. Accommodation is outdated, but comfortable enough. The shower over the bath in our room was excellent. Breakfast was terrible and overpriced. Receptionist at check out had plenty of desire to help, but quite terrible at his job. Tried to charge teice for breakfast and just generally made it a difficult process.
Far too expensive for the quality of room...
max £40 range. Read previous review as to not too happy as lone female traveller and bedrooms disconnected from reception area. Did get ground floor and near the door as requested. Very pleasant staff and the meal was freshly cooked.
Ideally placed for Newcastle, Angel of the North and Beamish Museum
Difficulty with Satnav.
I was directed into Holiday Inn (TomTom) and my colleaugues weren't able to enter the postcode or address (Skoda original equipment). The hotel are aware of this problem and gave us the name of the street opposite - too late then
Good location but rooms bit tired. lots of people hanging around outside at nite.
Good for couple but not single female as rooms separate to reception.
