I booked this guest house on the strength of previous reviews and on arrival was met by the owner, Phyll. She escorted me to my room which was spacious and clean.

The facilities within the room were modern, the rooms were warm and the beds exceedingly comfortable !The cooked breakfast was also to die for.

The location of the guest house was such that within a short space of time, you could be in Newcastle City Centre.

Overall a great experience - i hope to be back for another stay shortly, :)

Room Tip: speak to Phyll (the owner) she will always look after you

I read the reviews on Trip Advisor before booking this place, so thought it would be pretty sensational. It's nice enough, the rooms are relatively up-to-date, the beds are comfortable and it's certainly extremely clean. But we were in a little studio-style annex off the car park and I took ages to get to sleep as the room was very nippy with only one shared party wall. And it feels like an old fashioned B&B with a partial make-over.

Room Tip: Don't stay in the annex out of summer season.

This guest house is fantastic. It has a warm and friendly environment and is run by phyll who is totally devoted to her job and is very good at it. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms warm and well equipped and the breakfasts delicious. It is well situated only 20 mins walk from the river (less than £4 in a taxi with the 10% discount you get for staying at the guesthouse) and is in a quiet and peaceful location. With such good rates too I can't really fault this guesthouse, would highly recommend it and will certainly stay there again.

it's a little off the beaten track but actually only 15mins walk from gateshead metro. i would describe it as like staying at an elderly aunt's house. a little old fashioned, but immaculately clean and spotless, clean sheets and towels - all smelling really fresh, breakfast good and wholesome with no corners cut. and also a flat screen tv in the room with freeview. for £30 single this was the best value b&b i have ever stayed in. it really was like staying in someone's home - not a business. one star off sleep quality as i woke at 3:30 due to someone having their tv on. it was turned down low not blaring but im a light sleeper. probably a one-off and i would not let that deter me or you.

On a recent business trip to Newcastle, I decided to stay at the Alexandra Guest House after a recommendation from a business colleague. One of the major selling points of this quaint B&B is the landlady, Phyll Watson. Although the guest house is only three star (and it easily deserves a higher rating), the service provided by Mrs. Watson is absolutely five star. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Although I never used public transport, I am lead to believe that the guesthouse is well placed. It is close to the City Centre (it took me around 10 minutes in a taxi to get to Newcastle City Centre – about £10), and is also in walking distance of major attractions.

Definitely worth a look at if you are staying in the Newcastle/Gateshead Area.
