In a word..nightmare !!! We arrived and they told us they had no record of our reservation, they eventually realised that they had misspelt our name even though we emailed it to them. We were then taken to our room by the young man that was at reception. We asked him where the car park was and he said the street was fine. On asking where the nearest Metro station was he pointed in the direction and said 10 minutes walk and then disappeared. The best was yet to come ! After sleeping on a sloping bed (sore back for the next three days !!) despite the rowdy return of our man from reception and his mates from a night out we went next door to the actual hotel for breakfast. A room full of young women from a hen's night swearing and yelling about their adventures the night before as the manager sat and listened intently. Breakfast wasn't bad, but we ate quickly to make a quick exit. Checked out to find a dog on heat behind the reception counter and the manager, who had also cooked breakfast, gave her another pat. She apologised for the loud behaviour of the women in the breakfast room and we left. When we were looking for accomodation we looked up websites etc. for places we were looking at staying. Bewick Hotel boasted car parking facilities, a bar and restaurant. We didn't see any evidence of any !! The stay here really left a negative impression of the city.

Change of plan and we drive to metro centre. Unimaginably unpleasant. A visit to say I have been is more than sufficient. 2 story drive thru for dunki donuts amuses me. Afterwards we clean and pack. We also meet the kebabi owner who feeds Jamal. Raad (thunder in Arabic) speaks a lovely Geordie Arabic which amuses me a ...
Coast road from South Shields up to Alnwick. Disappointing far from the coast for a Coast road and just a few glimpses of the sea. Scenery was okay but disappointing. Alnwick was vey pretty, small, stone and reminiscent of Brittany. A couple of pints in the ...
... Victorian architecture. Have to really listen when the locals speak, a bit like trying to understand Eastern Europeans. Very friendly people. Most things are quite cheap except for chains. Grill and chill- Lebanese restaurant run by Bangladeshi guy who once worked for Lebanese people. Very good food. Fahed enjoyed everything up until the bill. Approx £50 but we did have 4 starters and 3 mains including sea bass so not really so ...
This was not a weekend all about tourism. It was more about a bunch of girls hitting the town.
We do the odd touristy thing such as looking at the Angel of the North and the river. Unfortunately "new castles new castle" (hermm) was not seen. We then have some bevvys, shimmy into some outfits and struggle to apply fake eyelashes. How people manage to wear these on a daily basis ...
