“Enjoyable but noisy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is very well appointed , spotlessly clean and staffed by efficient and friendly people. The location is very central in the pleasant little town and it has an excellent informal restaurant attached to the pub. Our room was comfortable and simply but thoughtfully furnished with a king size bed and modern bathroom. Service was good. I particularly welcomed an email in advance of our visit inviting us to reserve a table. Definitely a necessity at the weekend. Breakfast was plentiful and offered a good choice. Our only reservation was that our room adjoined the outside terrace/ smoking area which was quite busy on a warm evening. Wanting neither the noise or the smoke we had to keep our windows closed and use earplugs. I expect that it's not such a problem in cooler months. Excellent value and recommended.

The three horse shoes is a superb central place to stay, with wonderfull staff, food and rooms.
Excellent value for money by anybody's standards. The people in the North East are kind, warm and welcoming. The hotel has been designed and built to a high quality and the owners have real pride in their achievement, the attention to detail is first class and the hotel and grounds are spotless. Our only concern is the bar and resturant is extremely loud and uncomfortable,the design must trap the noise in the building so if you are looking for an intimate and romantic evening more luck at St James' Park on a Saturday afternoon between Newcastle v the Mackems! We are going back as it is a great hotel and setting just taking a pair of ear defenders each! X.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel rooms, the street noise is quieter than the smokers corner!

Room excellent, clean, modern and well- decorated. Food good. Staff and service excellent. Good selection of real ales. Car park a little daunting but convenient. The hotel is conviently located for local attractions and is a good base for sightseers and walkers. Would definitely stay here again.

Really lovely hotel, the decor was really nicely done we had an excellent and comfortable room. We had very good service. We were impressed with the food menu and had a wonderful breakfast. We also liked being able to walk out of the door and explore the town.

Excellent room. I said wow when I entered the room.

Bed is comfy

Bath is large and the shower was excellent. The bathroom was clean and large for my needs. The room had all the essentials.
