As a frequent business traveller around the UK, I'm accustomed to the usual identikit chain hotels, with their homogeneous conceptions of comfort and fittings and ambience. Jesmond Dene House is not like these hotels. The place oozes character, is sited on the verge of the stunning and tranquil Dene, and is staffed by effortlessly helpful, charming people. You might be surprised by the cosines of some of the rooms, but there's little to worry about—they're all well-appointed and with individual characteristics. My room had its own private rooftop terrace!
A word on the food: it's local, it's carefully-chosen, the quality is reliably excellent. At last, a hotel where you can enjoy the room-service.
You would never think you were so close to the centre of a great, vibrant city, and still able to luxuriate in such surroundings.More
