The staff was great. The bar lively with good food (and cute bartenders). The breakfast was good. I could not say anything bad -- it was worth every penny.

... curry and the wonderfully English (again) trifle for dessert, it was a lovely end to a lovely day and we made our nest in the beautifully fitted out guest suite and slept well!
The next morning it was onwards for more visiting. Breakfasted and with the dog walked, we were taken to the Gateshead Quays, to see the bridges and the Sage. We even made sure to walk across the Millenium Bridge so that Valerie could say that she's been to Newcastle too :-) The sun shone and ...
