if you are looking into using this hotel i strongly advise you have a rethink! i visited this hotel with 5 friends for a 21st birthday night out, we decided to stay here as this was cheaper than newcastle centre, but the extra money would have been well worth it! from walking into the reception and seeing the unprofessional slob behind the desk it was clear this was not a pleasant place.
there is an adjoining 24hour strip club with music pumping through the hotel non stop! the smell was so gross i was gipping but luckily this subsided once you were upstairs! as soon as we opened the doors to the rooms our jaws dropped at the disgusting upkeep (or lack of it) the walls were stained, window frames rotting, ceilings stained, carpets stained, the wall of the shower was broken, no pressure from the shower head, an iron in the wall with no casing and all the bare wires exposed, old dirty bedding, punched in doors. it was like being in the film vacancy!! we did not feel safe at all! my friend actually insisted on going to the shop and buying dettol to clean and we used the full bottle!!! i left this on show for the slobby receptionist to see! i would have complained but i feared for my life!!! you are allowed to smoke in this hotel also which disgusted me as a non smoker! the hotel is basically the perfect setting for a horror movie!!!!!
do not use this hotel, it should no doubt be closed down!! nothing in whitley bay is worth seeing the whole place is a dive, pay the extra tenner and stay in newcastle!
