Rex Review
The location is great - apart from the adjoining street with it's awful pubs (not including the lovely Windsor Hotel) Bedrooms are fine. Love the old fashioned feel to the hotel, BUT can never understand having a dreadful nightclub (The Deep) going on for most nights of the week, with its' awful 'music' which goes on till 3 in the morning effectively blocking off most of the bedrooms for a good nights' sleep. Very pleasant dining room and fabulous breakfast. Love the décor in the corridors with the delightful fairy pictures.
Big seaview windows, lovely comfortable bed(s), peace and quiet (when the nightclub is not on)
Cross the road and you're on the beach. Short metro ride to Newcastle city centre. Accepts dogs. Great.
