We had an excellent 2 night stay at The Briers. Diane was extremely helpful and friendly, she upgraded our room without asking because there was a better room available. The room was really clean and modern with tea/coffee making facilities with a couple of chocolate biscuits too. There was also a communal area for teas, coffees and biscuits that we didn’t use but was there if we wanted to. The beds were comfortable, the bathroom had toiletries available and the room had a patio door that you could leave the building from and return to so that was helpful as we didn’t have to go through the main building. The breakfast facilities were excellent. You can select from a hot menu with good choices and then there is a variety of cereals, yogurts, fresh fruits, cereal bars and fruit juices. We ordered tea and coffee and got a lovely big teapot of tea and a full cafetière of coffee. Would highly recommend this place if you want to spend some time in Newcastle. We will hopefully be back as soon as we can.

Wonderful place to stay. We travel a lot and this is the best guest house we stayed to date. Everything was top notch and the owners were so friendly. We would not hesitate to stay again if in the area. We highly recommend this guess house.

Can’t honestly think of a bad word to say. After breakfast we sat chatting with the owners for over an hour. Lovely, friendly, place. Good luck on your new venture. Will definitely be back on our next visit.
