The Gibside in Whickham is perfect for a visit to both Gatehead & Newcastle. The hotel has fantastic views over the valley from south of the Tyne to the lights of Newcastle and with free parking, if your'e lucky, it is really to access the Metro center and the Sage etc.
The hotel is well run, maybe a bit tired in places, but the rooms are spacious and all the staff very friendly.
The bed was super comfy and the amenities in the room everything you could need. The shower was not the most powerful but the water was always hot, the towels were replaced everyday and the cleaning ladies happy to do whatever they could for you.
We choose this hotel because it was a great deal on a winter saver as included free wifi in the rooms & breakfast, better than any deal I could get with Travel Lodge or Premier Inn and it's just back enough from all the main roads to be nice & quiet.
There are a fair number of stairs throughout the hotel and no lifts, mainly because it's on the hillside, so if you have any mobility issue's speak to the hotel I'm sure they would be happy to help you.
We will definitely be returning next time we visit family. less
