Newcastle Marriott Hotel Gosforth Park
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Six of us met up for a reunion weekend at the Marriott Gosforth Park. From the minute we checked in, we received excellent, friendly service. The staff were brilliant, and nothing was too much trouble. Value for money was unbelievable, food terrific, and the extra we paid for the executive facilities were well worth it. Julian and Daniel were just two of the staff to look after us, but they were all good. Food in the Plate restaurant was superb, and I can recommend the scallops and the crab and salmon starters, as well as the sole for main. The cheese selection was local and great. We all gad a fantastic time and can't thank the hotel enough for looking after us so well. Best hotel in the area.

Room Tip: Take advantage of the bed breakfast and dinner rate, plus upgrade to the executive floor if you like...

Quality place with quality service from friendly, efficient staff throughout. All positive and nothing negative to say.

Special thanks to the Executive Lounge staff, Debbie and Ian, who were excellent - good at their job, helpful and delightful to chat with.

As seasoned travelers, we would HIGHLY recommend this hotel as one of the most efficient and friendly that we've ever stayed in, anywhere in the world.

We were grateful to receive your very kind words, as it means so much to everyone, especially when it's such high praise of the staff. Debbie and Ian are delighted that they have been singled out, but I know everyone else is just as pleased. We hope that you have the opportunity to enjoy a future visit. Thank you for your feedback.

Stayed for 10 days for a business trip. I had single occupancy room. Breakfast is nice. I requested for a yummy omelet but I think the experienced (old) chef is a bit un-showy of his skills as he is only gave me 1/4 of omelet's ingredients. I had the full and rich omelet when the morning duty chef changed. That was yummy. Reception is very nice and accommodating. When booking a taxi, just do in the reception instead of calling the hotline in your room as you will be charged of local call charges. Surrounding is so nice. You can do an early morning jog. I got daily refill of tea & coffee in my room but not the toiletries. Beds and towels are always clean. I would like to go back again.

Our breakfast chefs are always willing to cook omelettes to our guests' taste, please do not hesitate to make a specific request on any future occasions. We have an on-site taxi company and calls can be made using the internal number for which there is no charge. We hope that overall you enjoyed your prolonged stay at the Gosorth Park and look forward to your return.

Firstly, that is not a reflection on the staff who where all competent and friendly.
But it is really rather dated, especially the bedrooms. Comfy mattress and clean, but in need of updating all round.
It must be a challenge for a hotel in a chain to really stand out from the crowd, and some manage, this one does not. Nothing really good, nothing really bad (apart from the usual hotel crime of TINY glasses for juice at breakfast).

Room Tip: Try to get one round the back, mine was near reception and there was noise in the morning

I have returned from a coach break in the north east staying at the Gosforth Park Hotel. I have not lived in the NE for a long time and was excited about staying in the hotel which was 'the place to go to years ago', Mostly I was not disappoined. Without exception the staff were lovely and went out of their way to help in every way. As I was on a coach trip we all had to eat at 6.30 and had a limited menu. The starters and deserts were fine, the main courses maybe were not the standard I had hoped for. I hope to return independantly in the future to benefit from the hotel's usual guest menu. We did have a very extensive beakfast buffet which was excellent.

I practically lived in this hotel for over a month. The styling of the hotel (rooms in particular) is outdated, with its 1980s creme-brownish furniture and wallpaper, but it was consistently clean and tidy. Beds have good matresses and come with different pillows to suit anyone's taste. Reception is welcoming, and on Tuesdays you got a free wine at the check-in. This Marriott has a great gym with decent machines, airconditioning and park view.

For dinner at "chat's bar", waiters generally don't pay a lot of attention. The food ranges from poor (fluffy burgers with buns burnt to charcoal-flavour) to delicious (warm duck salad with caramelised red unions).

All in all, decoration and dinner are somewhat letting it down, but apart from that it's a great hotel.

Thank you for your comments following your long term stay at the Gosforth Park. We were pleased to learn of the positive aspects of your stay and also the constructive feedback; which will be used to improve the service and the consistency of providing high quality meals for our guests. We have commenced an internal refurbishment programme which is gradually giving the bedrooms a more modern feel and hopefully upon your return we may have more of these rooms available.

Just back from a brilliant 2 night stay, we were upgraded to a beautiful suite with all the benefits, yes the food was a little slow in coming but that didn't bother us as the staff were so courteous, used the leisure centre as well again really lovely, would definitely come back to stay here again
