We arrived at the hotel in mid afternoon and quickly checked into our Executive Room (59) which is located on the Ground Floor and also one which has been recently refurbished. Our room was well furnished throughout and provided a good standard of accommodation. The hotel bedrooms appear to have undergone a refurbishment since our last visit and are a vast improvement on what they used to be. Refurbishment of the hotel is still ongoing although we did not experience any disruption to the enjoyment of our stay. Our room had ample drawer and hanging space for our stay and was also supplied with both dressing gown and ironing board.
The ensuite bathroom had a supply of Seaweed Therapy toiletries and nice thick hotel standard towels.
We had made our reservation on a D,B&B rate and this included an allowance of £23 per person towards the cost of dinner in the hotel restaurant - Blagdon Brasserie.
This proved a good choice since we had a most enjoyable meal. Breakfast was also an enjoyable and relaxing affair and served until 9.30am during the week.
The hotel is located just off the A1 at the junction with the A19 and is quite convenient for visiting other parts of Northumberland and also for Newcastle Airport being just about 5 miles or so away.
We had a comfortable stay at the hotel and look forward to returning again when the refurbishment programme is completed.More
