        The staff were so helpful. Spoke to sarah on reception the day before arrival and asked if we could book in early. Arrived at hotel at 11.15am and was booked in immediately. So friendly and helpful.

        Price of food especially the breakfast. Extortionate and unnecessary!

        Beds are comfy. Receptionists are really nice and helpful. Really good to have a sofa in the room!

        Payment was taken one month in advance when the conditions were to pay at check out. We found hairs in the bath which was really disgusting...We left the room at 10am and when we were back at 5pm, the room hadn´t been cleaned. However, they come to clean your room at 7pm!!!! Is this normal? Obviously, we just asked for some towels as you can imagine. Hotel needs to be refurbished urgently. Although they say you can ask at the front desk, there are no amenities in the room, except shampoo and body soap. Please don´t go for a romantic break.

        We liked the surrounding grounds as we had a small dog with us and there was plenty of room for her to stretch her legs on an extending lead

      • Older travelers

        It is convenient for travel and located near to Newcastle and Durham

        Lack of investment in improving what is very basic accomodation.

        We used the hotel to attend a local birthday party and found it ideal for our visit. It was quiet, clean and comfortable.

      • Family with children

        Hassel free, no unexpected problems, met our needs exactly. Great choice at breakfast.

        Prices at the bar and although breakfast choice was excellent £8.95 each was a little high.
