If you are a Hobbit this hotel might be fine.
Stayed here for one night in July 2013 with my wife.
At check in the receptionist was just not interested in us, more concerned watching the large screen TV on the wall. She had no local knowledge of any thing. Our room on the ground was tiny and the en suite could not possibly have been any smaller. The double bed was wedged against the wall. No room for suitcases. After getting into bed we found there was no control for the A/C. Called reception who refused to bring us one, so had to climb over my wife, dress and go to reception.
As the breakfast room was so small breakfast was on a rota. You had to ring down in the morning for your slot. Service and choice was terrible. Given thimble of orange juice, no cereal offered. Cooked breakfast was 2 pieces of bacon, one sausage and one egg. No coffee was available, only tea and only white bread toast. No brown. This outfit is so mean they even gave us the heel of the loaf as a toast slice.
Very bad hotel. We used it as we were using Eurostar to Bruges the next morning, and by contrast our hotel there was cheaper and much much better quality with great service.
Be careful of you credit card pre authorisation, as the Jesmond charged us 3 times and I received a call from my bank's fraud dept asking for clarification.
Just don't stay here.
