Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Margot63 Out of the way location
The location of this hotel a few miles outside of Newcastle city centre was ideal. It was in quiet grounds, and although close to a busy main road, little traffic noise could be heard. Ideal for day trips along the coast southwards, and easy to get north avoiding Newcastle. One unexpected bonus I suspect, is that the out of the way location tends not to attract young weekend revellers, or stag/hen night events. In fact it seems to be a popular place for overnight stays for coach holidays for senior citizens, so no late night discos! Pity some of them filled their pockets with items from the breakfast buffet as they left the dining room! The hotel is a little "faded" in décor and the dining room furniture a little old fashioned, with a mixture of unmatching chairs, but overall it was perfectly suitable for a few nights' stay, and the buffet breakfast was very good. Staff very friendly and welcoming. We would stay here again and overall it was very good value for money, especially if choosing the pre-booked non-refundable deal.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ISS59 First time at Washington
An excellent place to relax and unwind. Enjoyed this first visit to Washington. Staff were very welcoming and made us feel at ease. The stay was very good value for money, which was an added benefit. Comfortable, which you would expect, but quiet too, considering the proximity of the A1. Looking to stay again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Henry777 Great Food and service
Second time I have stayed in Washington UK and had a wonderful time. Room excellent and the food in the restaurant very special and the service good. Special member of staff Ann who was in charge at breakfast, we had great service even though she was rushed off her feet with the guests of a wedding party. This was true of all the breakfast staff.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by james21 Good customer care
The two young ladies at dinner acted as a real team, attentive but not overly so - a credit to the company. The food was great.
The only downside was lots of young boys rushing around the bar area, stairs and lifts which is why I suspect all other guests, except their parents, went up to their rooms

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ellie123 Well equipped, clean room
Very pleasant room in excellent surroundings. The room was spotless and very competively priced. The overall facilities were good with a bar serving alcohol as well as coffee/tea and a restaurant.
The hotel was well sitated and was close to local places of interest. It was also far enough away from the centre of the city thereby avoiding the noise and buzz of a lively centre.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this hotel to others.
