5/5 Excellent

Travelled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Needed somewhere to stay in Ponteland when meeting some friends. Check in was easy and plenty of parking available (register at bar). The room itself was clean and warm with hair dryer, iron and some toiletries. Must have been a mix-up in the bathroom as we had 4 utility kits but no shower gel or shampoo (We'd brought our own). Service in the bar was efficient and friendly and the 'full english' breakfast was one of the biggest I have ever seen. Very tasty as well as I have had some fairly bland breakfasts in the past. Will stay again
