The Hotel maintains the 18 en-suite rooms and warm, friendly welcome which have made it extremely popular with visitors to the region.

However, it is as an eating place that visitors will see the greatest changes to the Hotel. The property has been carefully redesigned to accommodate over 100 diners and yet maintain a relaxed atmosphere.

The new design acknowledges the importance of the Bowes Incline in regional industrial history and uses it to produce an interesting, intimate and smoke-free setting in which you can enjoy dishes from a menu created to be both appealing and tempting.

Our Full Menu and Daily Specials is served: Monday to Saturday 12.00-21.30 and Sundays 12.00-9.00.

Monday to Saturday there is also Lighter Lunch Menu available between 12.00-17.00

In the centre of all the main attractions of Newcastle, Sunderland and Durham this is an excellent small hotel. The rooms are immaculate and the restaurant offers a very good choice of meals to suit everyone. The staff are all very friendly and I will definitely be back.


Lovely little hotel spotlessly clean rooms with nice bathroom. The breakfast was great and the resteraunt food was beautiful. We enjoyed every bit of our stay and the staff where very friendly. We will return here if need to go that way again.

Stayed here with my daughter, the room was lovely, clean, great shower, breakfast perfect. Had an evening meal and it was delicious, huge portions and tasty. All the staff were helpful and would stay here again without a doubt.

What a great find. The hotel is just off the A1 but you wouldn't know it. No noise to be heard because of the triple glazing. The staff are all very friendly and very accommodating. The rooms are very comfortable and well furnished and spotless. Great walk in shower. The food is fantastic. Huge menu and great selection for breakfast. The hotel is ideally placed for so many tourist attractions. Beamish museum is very close by as are Sunderland, Newcastle and Gateshead. Loads of great places to eat. It's a gem if you are up this way give it a try you won't be disappointed.
