I have stayed at this hotel before, and stayed last night and discovered that the hotel had joined with others in the Best Western association. The same friendly, helpful staff, but now I gain points to match their excellent service, great location. I ate with my family at their restaurant Paco's and found a warm welcome, great portions, and good prices, we will of course be back. New benefits at a regular haunt.

What a find! Not expensively priced, beautiful room with a massive bed and nice decor. The staff were lovely and helpful, especially Dawn. There also turned out to be a bus just over the road to get into Newcastle in 20 minutes. Had a great stay.

A little Gem. Good standards all round. Nothing is a problem to make sure you leave with a good impression! Easy routes to Northumberland, Durham and Newcastle.
Highly recommended and reasonable rates.

Room Tip: We liked the rooms overlooking the Tyne and Newcastle

We had our Wedding reception here 12.7.14 and compliments to ALL staff, Mary and Paco, you made our day go so perfect. The food was exceptional, all our guests commented on it, nothing was a bother to any of the staff, cannot rate this hotel high enough, anyone thinking about having a Wedding here go for it, we had the Bowes suite during the day and Pacos restaurant for the Evening reception. We stayed in room 502 which was fantastic, our guests that also stayed said their rooms were beautiful and clean. Compliments to all at the Gibside.

What a lovely gem of a hotel, from the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home, nothing was too much trouble. The room was beautiful very clean, lovely large and very comfortable bed, the bathroom was well presented with both bath and shower, along wih very clean white anf fluffy towels.
The only draw back was it was very warm when we visited and there was only a small window to open but this was resolved by a lovely lady who gave us a fan to use. We used both the bar and Paco's the meals were super and very good value for money, so was the breakfasts.
All the staff that we met were very friendly and helpful and we look forward to seeing them again soon.
