easy reach of many places Nothing
The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly
Easy access to city, quiet at night, polite staff. I would like to return in the future for a longer stay
Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room was beautifully presented and I was pleasantly surprised as the price was very reasonable. I would definitely return again. A hotel bar would have been nice but not a deal breaker as only 5 miles from city-centre
The hotel was quite comfortable, and close to Prudhoe where my husband had to go to on business, and only a few miles from Newcastle Metrocentre for me to go shopping. There had recently been a leak above our bathroom, and it smelt damp. The hotel can't be blamed for that, but it needs to be attended to promptly. I would stay at the hotel again, but I would enquire about that beforehand.
The staff were very friendly,made you feel welcome.The hotel room itself was a good size,bathroom was spacious with a huge corner bath. The windows were difficult to open.
Accommodation was roomy and beautifully maintained. Staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. Probably the best value for money I have ever experienced.
The room, the quiet, the bathroom. Excellent stay - would definitely go back. would have liked cable/satellite television and digital (or any) radio.
Staff friendly, clean comfortable room at a reasonable rate. No.
The grounds were excellent The facilities were basic and shared. For the price charged, on suite should be available.
Nothing We reserved a family room (double and a single). First room they tried to give us was 2 twins in a room without a door knob. Stains on the bed covers and an overall stink. After complaining to the owner they gave us a double with a twin all scrunched into a small room on the 4th floor (no lift).Mind you they said that all the rooms were booked and everyone checked in which was obviously a bald faced lie.
Reasonably central to town, good location with regard to other restaurants. The quality of the room was poor, the bed sloped (felt like you where going to fall out), the bathroom smelt (problem with drains venting in), there was no controller for TV (meant using button which difficult since TV six feet in the air), there was little or no parking (had to park on street), etc.
meal when I went there.that is no heat conditionor during I stay. I feel disappointed with that.
Staff friendly and helpful. Very comfortable bed. No toilet roll holder. No bath mat and water tended to go onto floor when showering. It ended up in a pool by the bathroom door.
Many good points. a friendly welcome, helpful staff, a comfortable bed and the bar was open till late! Only one. The temperature of the shower in my room barely reached tepid. as this was only one night it mattered little to me but worth checking out
Reasonable sized room and very friendly staff Restaurant closed earlier than advertised (at 9 instead of 10) so we missed dinner there
The rooms were replenished daily and clened for when i returned and the food for breakfast was spot on. Steve on the bar was very approachable with a smile on his face at all times and when time allowed was willing to have a chat. The two ladies who did Breakfast were also excellent and very friendly and could not do enough for me. So thanks to them. At night time during the week i came down every night to eat but with me not being a great fan of tapas i ate the from the specials board. Unfortunately the special was the same all week and i would of liked a touch of variety. Due to this i went somewhere else for dinner when because of the nature of my visit (business) i would of preferred to stay there as i had lots of studying to do in my room. It would not put me off however as the positives far outweighed the negatives. Keep up the good work i think your on to a winner yours sincerely Graham Macdonald.
The downstairs of the hotel has a warm evening atmosphere and a fun design. The staff are friendly and it is near the river and beautiful bridges. Make sure you ask for one of the new rooms as we were faced with a very small, cold, shabby room and a fold out sofa bed for the same price as the larger, updated rooms with four poster beds! Be sure to check your booking with them twice before arrival as we checked only once and were not put on the booking list.
good bedroom, comfy bed, very friendly staff, great breakfast, location of hotel.
the personnel was really friendly and cooperative. The hotel offered wireless internet, but that did not work. Also, it offered tv, but most channels did not work properly.
The staff were very friendly and helpful at all times.Hotel was basic but clean and very well heated despite the extremely bad weather.Hotel tapas bar great food and good value for money Breakfast finished a little bit to early at nine am.Nine thirty is more appropiate for people on holiday especially in an northern England winter.
Well appointed bedroom, ground coffee, fresh milk and chocolates in bedroom, friendly, helpful proprietors, pleasant surrounding countryside, big choice of breakfast. Location is a bit remote, but good directions were given and we did not get lost. There was no sitting room for guests' use.
The location of Riding Farm is fantastic only 10 minutes from the centre of Newcastle. Very homely and very restful. Breakfast was wonderful and set us up for the whole day.
what we liked about riding farm was we had great hosts the room was first class the food was good ,it was agreat freindly atmosphere everthing about it was fantastic
Very friendly and cosy and within easy reach of Durham and Newcastle. Lumpy pillows! (Very minor point)
Nice location close to major road links very friendly owner comfortable room and good breakfast would stay there again
Friendly staff, lovely room, superb breakfast
Helpful pleasant staff. good breakfast. Hard to find.
we enjyed the atmosphere of the hotel and the extra touches
We found it very peaceful with a relaxing atmosphere and a good area for country walks.
The accommodation was very good value for money, and exactly where we wanted to be. The owners were friendly and the breakfasts were very good. None
We arrived late in the evening and the hotel called to make sure that I was arriving - very efficient.
Enjoyable full english breakfast served up by pleasant staff.Other staff also helpful and friendly. Shower unit could do with upgrading.
comforable and staff were very welcoming n/a
Basic clean friendly B&B within 25 minutes walk to City Centre ....
Plenty of towels, great breakfast, friendly staff but stayed out of the way, walking distance from town, quiet street. Paint fumes were a little overwhelming, but the room was fresh and well presented.
The night we stayed it was quiet, so we slept well. I requested that a dead light bulb be changed in our room and it was. The lady who cooked the breakfast was friendly - the only one out of three staff we met who was friendly. The room was pokey & claustrophobic. It was up many dark underlit staircases. There were many signs warning that breakages must be paid for, which made us feel like suspects & as though we were not welcome. When we tried to check in at 5pm, it took ages for the door to be answered. The room was too warm and the radiator had no heat control. The breakfast selection was poor. The whole hotel/guesthouse has an air of stinginess. On reflection, I thought it did not offer good value for money. I was relieved to be able to leave in the morning.
Did not match the description given .
okay had room for 4 males on racing weekend but wouldnt take wife there!!.good breakfast and ideal location for city centre okay for a lads weekend .no complaints as served the purpose
A no frills bed & breakfast hotel, friendly staff, clean room, comfy bed, good breakfast, all at a budget price.
