Whites Hotel
Reviewed 10 February 2012

Not sure how it gained 2* Status. Avoid room 110, apart from having a below average shower I also got scalded feet as the mixer tap was faulty. Staff not too bad. Originally we had 3 singles and a triple room booked, funny old thing that changed on arrival to 2 triples. The hotel could do with a revamp, as there were to many damp stains all over the walls and ceilings. Not sure how much was paid as it was a lads night away, but on the day we left a price of £89 for a twin room was quoted for a night. Never again. Certainly wouldn't recommend, would definately rather stay at a Holiday Inn, a lot cheaper and far better quality.

We walked the Hadrians Wall and this is the last hotel that we stayed at. Orginially we did not book this hotel but the hotel (Dorset Arms Wallsend) that we were supposed to stay in messed up and so this was a replacement and an upgrade! Its a lovely part of town, staff were grate and we slept well!

This hotel was reasonably priced, good location for shopping & drinking! very clean, well presented staff & rooms . For the money it was exactly what we were looking for. For me the only thing I would change was the traffic outside at peak times but then that is the same at most city centre hotels.

We booked the hotel a week before and paid £80 deposit by card for 8 of us, no other info was given about money except pay the rest when we arrived. When we got there we got told we all had to pay an additional £30 pound deposit incase of room damage because we were in a group! Did not get told any of this before we booked so we didnt have enough for that! We went to pay the rest of the hotel and staff told us we could pay the following morning as we were only there 1 night... When we did go to pay the next morning we got told they had already taken the money out of my bank account!! £156 to be exact! i did not get informed about this and they had no right to take the money out! when i confronted the reception about it all they had to say was 'we do not allow you to pay the following day' funny when staff the previous night said we could! Also she did not care what so ever that they had taken it out of my account without permission & because i had no money in my account i got a £50 bank charge! She was very stuck up & rude & i would advise anyone to NOT stay here! Was meant to be £90 per room & 1 room had a dirty sock left in it, another had mucky bedsheets & the showers didn't work! iv stayed in my fairshare of hotels & iv never been to one that is so misleading and downright horrible!

I'll keep this simple, if you are part of a group where the hotel is a place to crash (as we were, 20+ blokes on a stag!) I CHALLENGE you to find a better place, from the AMAZING bar with a computerized happy hour game, to the AMAZING £2.95 "Build a Burger" (TOP VALUE!!!) and the perfectly reasonable rooms...it really is a joy...IF you are a family, loved up couple, or of a "certain age" (4 flights of stairs and no lift) please avoid, if you do go, well, it's your own fault for not reading this!!!!!

Peace Out!!!!

Room Tip: The bar does an AWESOME happy hour at weekends from around 5pm-730pm and shows ALL major footy games...
