Travellers' Choice
Our property is on the South Promenade at Newcastle Harbour: The harbour is among the most richly historic areas of Newcastle. Home to many longstanding families, the area around the pier has a long association with the sea. The origins of the current harbour date back to the 1820's, when a new pier was created by Lord Annesley to replace the old one. One of the chief functions of the pier was to act as a loading point for Mourne granite, which was quarried in the hills above the harbour. If you stand on the shorter arm of the pier and look up towards the mountain you can see a path cut through the trees leading to the now defunct quarry on Millstone Mountain. In the last century, stone was quarried here and dispatched down this track to the harbour by railtrucks. It was loaded on to ships (known as Stone Boats) and used to build docks in Belfast and Liverpool and the courthouse gaol in nearby Downpatrick

Cracking spot for relaxing. View over the bay quite stunning. All staff very helpful and friendly, fish and chips top quality. Very comfortable room and bed, hotel covid secure. Breakfast was really really good. Loads of choice, freshly cooked and presented. Need to return for a holiday

I am a frequent visitor to Newcastle and I highly recommend this accommodation. I have stayed in several other places in Newcastle, however none are as good as this. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the cocktails are amazing. There's a varied range of food both in the bar and the breakfast area... The food makes that seaside experience amazing. There's no set time on the breakfast and i was blown away by the breakfast menu as it had vegetarian and vegan options also. The decking area is suited for all year and this accommodation is close to the seaweed baths which do a range of therapies. The room I stayed in was cosy, clean and warm overlooking the sea, with an ensuite. The manager is friendly and fun and the prices are very reasonable.

We had an upstairs room at the rear of the property with a sea view. Weather was unkind to us during the day and returning soaked to the bar downstairs for refreshment was very welcome. Later after dinner we lay in bed and looked out on the bay with the wind howling like a banshee all night. Like music through the rigging of the yachts next door at the Yacht Club. We're fresh air freaks so had the windows open all night. The bed was very comfy and the room adequately furnished for a short stay. The tv was useless as the signal kept breaking up but hopefully by the next occupant this will have been rectified as I informed the staff on check-out. We'll be back for another stay in the future.

Room Tip: Take a room at the rear as the front rooms would be noisy with the main road passing the premises.

Came with the family and had a lovely Sunday dinner here, the waitresses were friendly the food was beautiful and the cocktails were delicious, definitely recommend for dinner. Lovely walk up to it looking over Newcastle and the sea and mackins across the street is lovely after for a drink (would have stayed in harbour house but they needed the table and we didn't want to go out on the terrace as it was a bit chilly) would go back for dinner though

We booked a table for lunch for a large group while in Newcastle in July. Everyone enjoyed their food and the service was nice. My only complaint was that they didn't seem to have enough COVID-19 precautions in place - people ordering drinks in at the bar, children running around, nearby table was very close to our own. They did have an outdoor area and in hindsight, we probably should have asked to sit outside.
