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...

We travelled as a family of 4 including 2 teenagers and a dog.The family room was a good size ,well equipped and warm. Breakfast was very nice,the full English was nicely cooked and good quality. 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...

The room was fine, but the duvets and pillows were lumpy and the bed uncomfortable. The corridors could do with decorating. The place could do with some general maintenance, the sink was cracked, the bedroom door hard to lock. The grouting in the bathroom was dirty. Beware the out of date food at breakfast, particularly the yoghurts and pastries. We...

We stayed for two nights at this hotel. We arrived at the front door only to be told we had to,park around the back...easier said than done, we had to find it first. We were shown to our room on the first floor, it was clean & warm with a comfortable bed but very tired. We ate there both nights...
