“Excellent value in a convenient location.”
Reviewed 4 July 2013

This is an old style hotel with guest rooms that have been renovated to a high standard. Rooms are located on the first floor, while downstairs is the bar and restaurant. No ground floor noise rises upstairs which is great, and the food in the restaurant is excellent value, with a good range of quality gastro pub dishes. Rooms are good value, and free WI-FI is included in the tariff. Onlty a short distance by car to the railway station and shops, this is a good base to explore Newcastle from. The icing on the cake is that the team are nice folk too!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the family rooms (that is what I had). Tonnes of space and room to spread out. I am t...

Staying at the Sunnyside Tavern was most enjoyable ,the staff was very helpful ,the meals were exellent and the room was very comfortable with a nice little kitchenette,I would recommend this accomodation to any one .We were attending a function at the Entertainment Centre within walking distance and although we walked we were offered a courtesy bus which I thought was very nice

The room is very clean and the furniture seems to be very new. I was there on public holiday so i have not seen a single employee from there over the two night stay. We checked in going through the back door which is pass locked so the offers good security as well. The pub below is not opened so cant basically rate on the food.

The rooms had obviously been refurbished very recently and therefore all furnishings etc were new. The positives - very clean; lovely linen; excellent quality towels and proper bath sheets. But, the negatives - only one bedside table and lamp in a double room (bizarre); room tiny; no chair to sit on; nowhere to put case; no kettle - had to go to end of corridor to use a kettle, microwave, fridge. These were relatively small things to fix, so all the more disappointing. In addition, when my husband went into the bar to hand in the key, the reception was snappy and unfriendly. What a shame.

Sunnyside looks like any other tavern from the outside but the rooms are almost what you'd expect at a boutique hotel. Well proportioned, gorgeous linen and exceptionally clean. The food was gorgeous and there's access to tea,coffee, kettle, microwave fridge etc. I'll definitely be returning!!!

We stayed overnight to attend a concert at the entertainment centre,upon booking we were told there is usually a courtesy bus running on the nights there is something on, perfect to be able to park your car and not have the worry about finding your way.All staff were friendly and helpful.We didn't get home from concert until late so we missed the noise from patrons.Beautiful meals from the restaurant, rooms very clean and fresh.Only issue was a terrible smell after using shower coming up through the drain, although that was after a period of loads of rain so I suspect everything is overloaded.We will stay here again

We stayed one night after going to the newcastle entertainment centre to see a show(10/15min )walk away....upon arrival we were met by a very pleasant female staff member who explained everything and she also took us to our room...the room was spotlessly clean and the decor very tasteful.

Infact we found all the staff to be very helpful and pleasant.

We ate in the dinning room never thought to book a table but as we were guests they found us a table even though it was very busy.

Would we stay again and recommend this Hotel... most definitely
