We stayed here for two nights for the Great North Run so it was busy, but service remained great and they put on a few extras including extended breakfast hours and snacks and water for runners. At £200 a night including breakfast this was one of the better value hotels for the weekend. Rooms were comfortable and spacious, just the bathroom was a little cramped. Breakfast was fine, and very bog standard hotel buffet, it would benefit from more veggie and particularly vegan options. The location is great, less than five minutes from the train station. Overall a good pick, would stay again.
