Loved the old style room, the bed was super comfy and the staff were amazing. Trains were an issue at night, a bit noisy being so close to the main Newcastle line. The neighbouring guests were a bit noisy too unfortunately. Can't blame the facility for that though.

Beautiful historical property - old world charm. Warm & friendly management / staff. Nice breakfast . It is a hotel so there is a noise factor from music & patrons - but it ended at an acceptable time. Overall , value for money.
