3Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
Promenade , Whitley Bay, NE26 2RL
Located directly on the promenade overlooking the sea in the thriving town of Whitley Bay and just 20 minutes drive to Newcastle. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi, onsite parking, restaurant and bar.

The property is perfect for the young and young at heart, there has been a total overhaul of the
entertainment facilities which now include 3 of the most exciting and modern bars and a nightclub situated within the hotel, the nightclub is open
Thursday - Saturday plus Sundays on a Bank holiday weekend from 10:00PM - 3:00AM. Also centrally located for all of the town's amenities, makes this the ideal base for a break on the North East Coast.

Each bedroom is comfortably styled and furnished and designed with the convenience of the guest foremost in mind. Many bedrooms offer commanding
panoramic sea views and provide the ideal base to explore and enjoy the surrounding area.

The Restaurant offers the ideal place to have something to eat, with a varied menu offering something for every taste using the freshest
ingredients you will be able to enjoy a delicious meal whilst looking out at the wonderful seaview. Please note, the restaurant is now closed Sunday -
Thursday until further notice. Sunday lunch will still be available.

The seaside town of Whitley Bay has been popular with generations of visitors, the iconic St. Mary's Lighthouse which is now a visitor centre
stands on its own island and features a nature reserve and wetland habitat. Guests also visit from all over the UK to sample the nightlife and certainly don't leave disappointed. Newcastle and the wider area is made up of a diverse variety of towns, cities, coast and countryside offering a huge selection of things to do whatever your tastes. From relaxing at the coast to soaking up world-class culture in the city centres, from getting back in-touch with nature at a woodland retreat to shopping at Europe's largest indoor shopping and leisure complex, (Metrocentre). It's rare to find anywhere so diverse that amazes visitors at every turn with its dialogue
between ultra-modern and ancient, with award-winning dining, inspiring heritage, fantastic shopping and acclaimed architecture makes up a
destination like no other.

Please note the hotels lift is currently out of order for the next few weeks.

Business stay in the North East
My single nights stay at the Rex Hotel was really enjoyable. My room was spacious and had a flat screen TV with freeview channels available. Pleased that there were Tea making facilities, always ready for a cuppa when i arrive at a hotel after work. Had my evening meal in the restaurant and when you get three courses for less than £10.00 and the quality is good you know you are on a winner. Staff were all friendly and if in the area again, this would be a hotel i would stay at.

my night at the Rex!!
while the room was big and spacious it was also freezing, as the one and only radiator didnt work. We were then given a fan heater which unfortunately blew out cold air!!
the full english breakfast was only just sufficient, normally one would keep me going all day, however I was ready for lunch considerably earlier than usual.

A very nice hotel on the sea front within walking distance of lots of shops and bars/restaurants.
Breakfast was excellant room very good but not very warm even when heater was on full and no heating in bathroom.Nightclub under hotel i stayed when it was open and didnt have a problem sleeping even though it is very busy around hotel from thursday onwards. Resturant not open in evenings but plenty around the bar only sells botted beers so quite expensive.Parking on front and 24hour reception.
