It was a very cold day and it was a very big bedroom but the heating was not up to its job. The ventilator in the bathroom was noisy and reception attended to this reasonably quickly but it was still not completely inaudible from the bedroom. I suggested that this might be making the room cold but was told that this was not so. Reception were clearly under some pressure because there was a big business party who were having a meeting at the hotel on the next day. Although the business people were a bit noisy in the bar, the staff herded them to the far corner and this was not a problem.
The food, excellent traditional dinner and breakfast, was excellent. It was good to look out over the Tyne from my table.There was a big crush at breakfast but, again, the staff coped well.
This hotel is in an old building (former Corn Exchange) and is obviously difficult to heat, insulate and maintain. I was told that the group have only acquired the premises recently and have a plan to bring them up to modern standards over a period of time. It would be good to have things completed by next winter.
Finally, night life in this part of Newcastle on a Monday night, seems to start at about 11.30 pm.. Double glazing would help in more ways than one.
