Good Hotel Guide Review

‘Pleasant’, ‘attentive’ staff encourage guests to make themselves at home in Nick and Melanie Tulip’s country hotel. The Victorian building stands in large, carefully tended gardens; inside, find paintings, photographs and antiques in the traditionally decorated lounge. Individually styled bedrooms vary considerably: pick from a modern seaside look; youthful colour schemes; peaceful, neutral shades. A spacious two-bedroom apartment under the eaves is available for short lets. Sharing platters are available all afternoon; come sundown on a fine day, the terrace is ‘ideal for alfresco drinks’. In the dining room and conservatory, tuck in to chef Jamie Walsh’s modern British dishes, perhaps ham knuckle press, home-made pease pudding, toasted peanuts; slow-cooked duck, confit potato, plum pickle. Occasional wine-tasting dinners match themed wines (from Bordeaux, Sicily or the Duero) to four-course dinners. Reach the sights of Gateshead easily: the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art is a 15-minute drive away. Well-located for travellers to and from Newcastle; despite the A1 being nearby, ‘the gardens mean the place feels quite rural’. More reports, please.

Guest comments

'After a family lunch we stayed the night. The lunch was excellent and the staff attentive. A children's menu was available. We stayed in Sycamore which was comfortable except that the bed was creaky - we raised this as we checked out and were thanked for doing so. It was a warm night so we had the window open and the trains were heard regularly! Food was good. The staff were unfailingly pleasant. It's well located for 'doing' Newcastle, and is near the A1 but the gardens mean the place feels quite rural. ' - MB - July, 2014
