                • Family with children
                  10.0

                  I was staying with my daughter while she was in a show at the Playhouse and from the moment we arrived the hotel and staff were excellent. Very central location, but without the noise or stag/hen parties in some of the hotels close by which meant you could definitely get some sleep when you finally got to bed! Comfortable room and exactly as it looked on the internet. Would definitely stay there again.

                • Older travelers
                  9.6

                  Wonderful location with magnificent sea views visible from the whole room.. Armchairs provided in the bay window to sit and enjoy the views north to St Mary's Lighthouse and south to Tynemouth.

                • Older travelers
                  8.2

                  Clean, quiet, Very pleasant staff, good breakfast

                  Inadequate car park facilities, I got a ticket.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  The room was lovely and the sea view was great. The staff were very helpful overall a very enjoyable stay

                  The only thing was the shower was very small but that did not spoil our stay in any way

                • Single
                  7.4

                  The parking was difficult and I had to park in a street a way from the hotel but this seems to be common to the area

                • Family with children

                  The location

                  Arrived late night -large room with en -suite - however early next morning got up for shower but upon examination, shower head was disgustingly covered in months of grime & gunge; it had not been cleaned for some considerable period and was in need of changing immediately plus the bathroom had opaque glass in windows but no blind or curtain so little privacy as overlooked by other rooms especially when light on. However Landlady offered another room but smaller with better shower for second night, and a £10pound discount was given. Still didn't make up for initial problem and overall suprise.- So thanks but no thanks.

                  Convenient location

                  The en-suite toilet hadnt been cleaned properly, there was poo left in it, no teaspoons for the coffee, was only given 1 bath towel for 2 people, the double bed was 2 single beds pushed together, didnt get the room that was original booked but did get a reduction on the bill

                • Older travelers
                  6.2

                  Room was clean

                  The Hotel is a little tired and could do with a refurbishment. Breakfast was poor - 1 rasher of bacon, 1 cheap quality sausage, a fried egg (no choice offered), beans and 1 mushroom cut in half. On our printed information when we booked it stated checkout between 10.00 - 11.00 a.m. At 10.35 a chambermaid came to the door to start cleaning, we informed her that we were not ready to check out, two minutes later another member of staff knocked and asked how long we would be, I replied that we would be as quick as possible he then came back and quite rudely told us that we should have checked out at 10.30 and could we hurry up as someone needed the room at 11.00 a.m.

                  staff were friendly, hotel was warm.

                  coul not connect to the wifi, had a family room but not enough milk/facilities for drinks. the shower would not turn off and some of the room/hotel needed a good dusting.

                • Family with children
                  5.0

                  The staff at breakfast were very helpful and polite. The location is right on the sea front and very close to bars and restaurants. We ate at the Italian next door but one, Davantis, which was excellent. The was car parking available on site.

                  I was disappointed with the standard of the room. The beds were made up so individual pillow cases were not used and the pillows were under the bottom sheet. There was no additional sheet between the duvet and yourself which I would have expected as I am sure the duvets are not changed with each visit. The were used shampoo bottles in the shower which I think indicated this had not been cleaned since the last resident.

                • Couple
                  4.6

                  Most definately not a 4*, (even 3* is being generous) certainly in need of an update and a really good clean. Was really worried about stopping here after reading reviews (but all other accommodation was booked up to due a large concert taking place). However, the bed and bathroom were clean - the 2 most important factors for me. The breakfast was hot and tasty but certainly not enough - 1 rasher of bacon, 1 sausage, 1 egg, 1 mushroom (sliced in half), tsp of baked beans!!!!!!. At £110 for 1 night - I expected more and certainly would never stop there again.

                  The Beds were clean and comfortable

                  Although the hotel was in an ideal location for all the amenities, I felt the hotel was of a low standard

                • Older travelers
                  5.8

                  Small but adequate room.

                  Limited parking - 5 spaces for possibly 15 rooms so we had to park on the street. Room was very small. Breakfast closed promptly at 9:30 - we just made it, but saw they didn't want to be flexible. Decor in the breakfast room was very scruffy - ie stains on the wall.

                • Family with children
                  3.8

                  We did not like anything about this hotel, it was by far the worst we have stayed in.

                  The hotel has very limited parking despite advertising it. The room was very dirty. The carpets resembled those of a public bar. The bathroom was not cleaned well with both the toilet and shower being dirty. The full english breakfast was almost inevitable and the service was terrible.

                • Older travelers
                  7.4

                  Easy access to beach and surrounding areas of interest.
