Charming, friendly and a foodie treat

I stayed at this hotel last week. The rooms were very smartly decorated, if perhaps a little on the small side. But the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly and, when I had to change room, they went out of their way to smooth the process. The hotel garden was a delight, begonias and lavender in profusion. The package I was on included an eight course taster menu. When I saw the menu I was a little apprehensive as virtually every course had something that I either had never tried before or that I did not like. I need not have worried, every course was delicious - beetroot ice cream for anyone?

Super hotel with an observatory- out of this world!

Ronantiki, Tynemouth, United Kingdom
Just stayed at the Battlesteads for the second time-definitely won’t be the last! It’s such a super little hotel, I can’t recommend it enough. The rooms are beautifully decorated and well appointed, great tea and coffee facilities in room (Ringtons and home made shortbread), lovely eco friendly toiletries, plenty of bright white towels and very comfy beds. The food is excellent, with the Battlesteads omelette and wake up marmalade particular favourites of mine! The observatory is so interesting and the guys who run it are so engaging. Well work the 45 minute trip out from Newcastle, even on a cloudy night! The hotel staff are so friendly and helpful too. You really couldn’t ask for more!

Wonderful one night stay while walking Hadrian's Wall

YourMumRang, Sutton Coldfield, United Kingdom
We were booked into Battlesteads Hotel by Hadrian's Wall Ltd. The hotel sent an MPV out to collect us from Brocolitia, which was prompt & very welcome after a long day. The rooms we were given were excellent - decorated & equipped to a high standard. Beds were very comfortable and we were provided with a nice bowl of fruit as well as the usual tea & coffee. They had a great bar, with well kept ales and the evening meal we had was excellent - the best that we had on our 5 night trip. The hotel provided a very good packed lunch for us for our next day's walking & we got a lift back to our start point (i.e. back at Brocolitia) at an earlier than usual 7am, which was extremely kind of them. If you are thinking of visiting Nortumerland or walking Hadrian's Wall, I would highly recommend a stay at Battlesteads.

Unable to redeem a gift - booking a joke!

Jo W,
Received a gift voucher and tried to call 3 times to make a booking. Each time they were too busy, twice they asked me to call back another time they said they would call me... no call received. I then took to email, requested a date and received a lovely email advising they were fully booked and was there an alternative date I would like. I emailed and asked what there next available Saturday was, no response received so I emailed on 26th June again asking about availability. Next I heard was an email at 21:19 on the 7th July confirming my booking for the 7th July. When I queried this apparently they sent confirmation of this booking, without confirming it was acceptable, via email on the 25th June. They apparently just ignored my email of the 26th June asking for availability. I now no longer wish to visit as feel it would be a toxic environment owing to the spate of emails. Cannot believe such a lovely thoughtful gift has caused so much difficulty and ultimately gone to waste. My advice, don't give a gift voucher.

Absolutely Perfect!

We bought a voucher for their 5 course taster menu with a trip to the observatory so decided to stay overnight too. Upon checking in we were shown to our room, which was decorated lovely. We were welcomed with the usual tea, coffee and hot chocolate [all local produce] along with a huge bowl of fruit and a jar of delicious cookies. There were toiletries in the bathroom, ours was more like a wet room. The meal was a bit of a surprise as hadn't seen a menu, but that was our choice. When each dish was presented the staff took the time to tell us what we were about to eat. We decided to have the wine pairing with our meal. Each glass was brought to the table prior to the dish it was paired with. Again the staff told us a little bit about the wine and gave us a leaflet which listed all the wine we were going to have. Our trip to the observatory was informative and although it was scheduled as 'Aurora Hunting' there was no way we would see any northern lights in the summer but we did get to see a few planets. We will definitely return in the winter months when the sky is darker and maybe take the children. Breakfast was very nice too, with a choice of continental and cooked or both. We had planned to stay for lunch so requested a late check out, unfortunately we were still full from breakfast so had to give lunch a miss! Overall, a lovely hotel, friendly staff, delicious food with a chance to see our solar system. We will most definitely return.
