Having read th rpevious review I was a little apprehensive about booking this hotel but it was near to where we wanted to be so gave it a go (only three nights anyway). I would not describe the hotel as shabby. The decor throughout was smart, clean and tidy though definitely not pretentious. The staff were very friendly and competent. The food was very good (and served on piping hot plates!) with courteous and quick service but not rushed.
The bedroom was small but adequately fitted (flat screen TV and tea/coffee making). The bathroom was very small and this is the one area that could do with updating but everything worked satisfactorily.
The bedroom walls were very thin but there was no noise late at night and we were not kept awake.
There was lots of car parking and the residents car park was very secure.
The hotel was very convenient for NT properties along the Tyne valley (and there is a regular bus service to the Metro Centre). A number of easy walks locally and a choice of eateries within walking distance although we ate in the hotel each night because we enjoyed it so much (we were only booked B&B).
It's not 4 star luxury but a comfortable small country house hotel.
