Decided to stay at The Bowes Incline with my partner again, simply because it is a comfortable and very pleasent hotel with a marvellous bar/restaurant. The food is renowned for it's high standards and the staff are very friendly, attentive and professional. It is pretty remote, so a car is needed unless you want to use a taxi, but we...

Stayed here for two nights. Room was nice, clean and spacious. Food in the hotel was excellent with a fantastic choice. Service very good. The only downside was finding it as our sat nag took us somewhere totally different. The postcode on website was wrong and even when we got the one off their own business card it took us...

Another great find in Gateshead. 4 of us for Sunday lunch. We went for 4 different roasts. Beef, lamb, pork & turkey. All came with Yorkshire pudding. All were very substantial, the meat was tender and cooked to perfection. Nice selection of vegetables & stuffings. Staff are very helpful and pleasant and made us feel comfortable right from the start....

Before I booked this hotel I read the reviews and I must say they were highly overrated. What this is, is an average old hotel/pub in the middle of nowhere. The rooms are old and dark (bathroom is really dark). But having said all the negative I will also mention the positive. The Wi-Fi worked really well. The pub is...

Pleasant, clean hotel close to the A1, convenient for Newcastle but surrounded by green fields for walking and exploring. Restaurant on site for breakfast and dinner if you don't want to go further afield.

Went this week for a family meal, latish in the evening. We had a range of meals and, although there was a wait, the wait was worth it. All were cooked to perfection; they were fresh and well presented. Portions superb, almost too much. The flavours chosen for the more specialized dishes all complemented each other well. Excellent and knowledgeable...

Chose this hotel as we wanted to break our journey home from Aberdeen and visit Beamish Museum. Lovely place to stay, with all bedrooms on a ground floor extension to the original building. All staff were really friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking and hotel is located at the end of country lane. Breakfast was cooked to order with cereals...

Chose this hotel because of its close proximity to the Beamish Museum, Angel of the North and Metro Centre. We enjoyed our stay here, check in was quick and the staff pleasant. The room was a double room which was a good size with tea making facility which was very welcome. It was nice and warm with a radiator you...
