Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    The location is excellent,being so near to the riverside and the castle.the staff were very friendly.

    Although our room was clean and a nice size,it was unbearably hot.we tried to use the aircon but it was so noisy that we could only tolerate it for a while.it didnt seem very effective anyway.consequently it was the worst nights sleep I have had in a hotel ever.the television reception was poor even though it had a freeview box the breakfast was quick and ok but very lmited in choice..

  • Single

    Friendly local-feeling place right on the Tyne Waterfront, very good value especially compared with its fancier competitors along the Quayside.

    Minor point: washbasin looked badly cracked (though it didn't leak, so looked worse than it was) - slightly gave impression that they have difficulty coping with the weekend stag-night trade....?

  • Single

    Good location close to the quayside, the hotel is situated at the end of the Swing bridge.

    Room was extremely hot and muggy. The mobile air conditioning unit did little to cool the room. The room faced onto a busy junction and it was not possible to open the window whilst keeping the curtain shut. Bathroom suite was modern but not clean and carpet was not vacuumed. No clear tv signal either.

  • Single

    Handy car parking opposite, although this is outside a busy music venue, excellent breakfast.

    Noisy, at least it was on Fri/Sat - the Hotel is above a busy Bar/Club, also the Hotel is situated amongst many bars/Clubs and revellers and music could be heard until 3am

  • Single

    The location. It's just about on the quayside, but convenient for town. Breakfast is excellent, prepared for you if you have a cooked breakfast

    Not very struck on the decor - lots of clashing patterns, and the rooms are quite small

  • Group of friends

    good location, good breakfast, nice staff

    much to hot in corridors and reception, room did have air conditioning, still too hot there. The toilet roll holder in 215 was designed by a man

  • Single

    The staff were friendly.

    The hotel was very poorly ventilated in many parts and the combination of stale air and heavy cleaning agent being used to try to cover it up was unpleasant.

  • Couple

    Very good location, nice breakfast, Car park available even though ist seems to be scarce in that area

    We booked a double room which was available according to Booked.net but then got a twin room. But it was good that we were informed immediately by the staff of the hotel.

  • Family with children

    Room is very small, I was charged £8 for a breadfast for my kid, I think that is too expansive and it was not stated at the hotel policy.

  • Single

    My room was not ready by check-in time - hoovering had yet to be done - this never happened.

  • Couple

    Sadly it wasn't a good experience i was woken up with about 20 bites on my body.we was staying for 2 nites but only stayed for one,sadly would never stay there again...

  • Single

    Free parking, friendly and helpful staff, good central location

    The second floor temperature is way too hot and it was very uncomfortable within my room. I had to request an additional fan but the temperature was still very hot. The corridors also smell quite musty and damp.

  • Couple

    Location is excellent, with free car park

    Very old, in desperate need for refurbishment. Room and corridors smell, rooms are very hot and poorly ventilated with only a fan (no ac). Carpet is disgusting, bed mattress is very old and uncomfortable, same for pillows! The only good things about this hotel is location, the photos on the website are probably 10 years ago and do not reflect the reality, and when they say it has been recently refurbished they probably mean 20years ago!

  • Single

    Excellent breakfast room, friendly and helpful staff and superb location for the Sage and other local amenities. In-room wifi and free parking were very welcome.

  • Single

    Across the river from the sage gateshead
