We recently had a one-night stay here, in rooms 3 and 4. The hotel was lovely, and all the staff we spoke with were very nice. Our rooms were nicely appointed, with a bowl of fresh fruit awaiting us. Ours looked out over trees, and I could hear the waterfall nearby. We missed tea time, but had a very tasty dinner in the restaurant that night, and a great breakfast the next morning. I would have liked to be able to stay longer and explore the park area behind the hotel or the nearby village of Jesmond. I don't know how it ranks on the convenience scale for sightseeing in Newcastle, since we didn't do any.
Two minor suggestions, and one big thanks: As others have mentioned, the beds are a little too hard. We found that true in many other hotels here, however. Second thing is while the restaurant was very good, I think the menu could benefit from just one or two more straightforward dishes. I was fine with lots of fancy tweaks and unusual ingredients, but my teenagers would have appreciated some simpler choices.
Now for the thanks: When we were at the train station to leave town, I realized that I had left my best walking shoes in our hotel room! After some calls we discovered a taxi would take too long, so they rushed a staff member over with the shoes to meet me at the station. We had just enough time to grab the shoes and run up for our train. I'm so happy they were willing to go that extra step.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A grand house with contemporary style, a leafy setting near the heart of the city. Jesmond Dene House is neither a townhouse nor a country house hotel. It's simply 40 well-designed bedrooms and suites in a richly historic building offering understated luxury and rather good food. Overlooking the wooded valley of Jesmond Dene, the privately owned hotel guarantees peace, escapism and a refreshing change. Newcastle's city centre, however, is only a five-minute drive. The hotel recently received 4 red stars and the AA Hotel of the Year 2008-2009. ... more less
