Positive Reviews

Conveniently located near city centre

Guests have found the location of this guest house appealing and are often particularly appreciative of how many shops, restaurants, and attractions are within walking distance of the property. The guest house is also ideally situated if you want to visit the Lake District and Northumberland National Parks.

Great breakfast every morning

Reviews (and awards) suggest that you can look forward to a great breakfast here. Guests have described the continental items as varied and nicely displayed and often comment that the cooked breakfast is superb.

Comfortable and tastefully decorated rooms

Although a small number of guests have found the rooms here a little on the fussy side, most have given only positive feedback concerning the standard of the accommodation. The general consensus is that the rooms are clean, comfortable, and tastefully decorated.

Negative Reviews

Some concerns about traffic noise

Reviews of this property, although largely favourable, do indicate that there is a little traffic noise to contend with. Understandably, this is more of a problem for guests staying at the front of the property.

Quality of Wi-Fi may disappoint

A fair number of guests have mentioned that they were disappointed by the Wi-Fi here, complaining about the absence of a strong signal. This problem mainly seems to affect rooms at the top of the house.

Small en-suite bathrooms

The en-suite bathrooms here are found to be clean and nicely maintained. Guests also enjoy the high-quality toiletries. However, there is a downside and that is the size of the bathrooms. Guests have often described them as small.
