This is a great bed and breakfast.It is well run by Duncan.He is a nice guy who will help you with all your needs.The place is clean and comfortable.However i did have a few problems.
The rooms are not ensuite.The hotel is directly on a busy road.(The building is double glazed.)It is 100 yards from the town hall.This has an open bell tower which rings every hour and i do mean every hour day and night.The traffic was busy.I thought i might get a quiet Sunday morning but no a chap drove past in a council road sweeper at 6am!
To sum up this is a good b&b but a bit noisey.

  • Liked — spotless and well kept hotel

Reviewed 19 July 2007

spent one night at the Athol House, was warmly welcomed by the owner, and shown direcly to my room, then advised where to safely park my car, before assisting me with my case. the room was large, newly decorated and spotless, the whole hotel has been recently refurbished and the owner advised me that all the rooms had also been soundproofed .. so a very quiet stay.
breakfast is served in the dining room from where you can watch ur fod being cooked, the breakfast was lovely with a fantasic choice of cereals and cooked food, and as much toast and tea as i wanted.
i am returning for a longer stay in a few weeks with my son the hotel is close to the town centre which has a metro stop from where it is about 15 mins into newcastle. it is also close to the coast
