Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Room was modern and clean. At the top of a hill about a mile from the waterfront, but on bus route. Looked over posh residential street, very quiet. Brilliant breakfast. You could have juice, cereal, full breakfast.

We chose this hotel as it is located within the quaint village of westoe, it looked very charming and was local to visiting family for a gathering, I also advised three other members of our family to book... but I was very disappointed. Firstly the outside looks charming, I got quite excited as to what this beautiful building would look...

It was good to have a private car park. The Wi-fi was excellent which is a godsend when taking teenagers. We enjoyed our stay and...

Second time visit this time for just one night so booked a single room. Room small (as stated clearly on web site) but more than adequate for a short stay. Hotel is clean although decor looking in need of tlc. It's clear that a programme of refurbishment is taking place but this didn't affect my stay. Good car parking facilities...

I stayed at this hotel on Saturday with my daughter. The place is so run down and needs a complete overhaul. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. However, they appeared to be very short staffed. On Sunday morning one person was waiting on tables; clearing up and manning reception. It was cheap to stay here but I would never...

Good things about this hotel. The food is excellent, and although the place is shabby, it's a lovely old building and would cost a fortune just to keep together so we should be grateful we still have it. Also the location is the most beautiful street in South Tyneside and I love history so it was fun and interesting. The...

I looked at the site and thought the pictures of the room shown and the exterior of the property made the hotel look quite inviting...how wrong I was. Firstly I booked a single room and was given a converted broom cupboard!!! The room was tiny and the furniture and decor tired. There was no flair, the walls were scuffed by...
