This hotel is cheap for a reason - caveat emptor (let the buyer beware) as they say. This is a very rundown, damp smelling and unclean hotel. My advice is to stay well away. It's not a good advert for Gateshead.
Rooms were a disgrace, Broken furniture (chair fell apart when it was picked up), no remotes for TV! In one of the two rooms we had, the TV was on top of a rickety wardrobe, which threatened to fall apart (the wardrobe that is). The guest in that room was less than 5 foot tall - go figure. The tea/coffee making facilities were a joke - powder milk, badly stained tea/coffee cups and electric kettle (with water from previous guests still in it). One room had a saturated carpet. Although manager/owners were concerned No alternative room or reduction offered. Hardly any bedside lights worked.
