No staff aware of family offer we booked

R H. Families - 28/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Arrived just after 2pm with 2 excited children who’d never stayed in a hotel to enter the room finding it had not been made up! No one in restaurant or hotel knew about family affair offer we booked on so no pizza making for kids, given 2 glasses of sour milk for kids at bedtime, had to show staff picture of the offer on my phone! Very disappointing

Good staff

Brief stay but very pleasant, hotel is situated by a golf course which means it is quiet. Had a super room which was very spacious and comfortable with views over the course. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, the hotel itself is kept clean and felt safe.

Lovely Room

Loved the pool, rooms, staff and pizza’s OK, and added bonus that we could use the driving range. Overall, rooms priced exactly where they should be.

Nice restaurant / Some great staff

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Anonymous Business - 18/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice restaurant and a some great staff, but the rooms get ridiculously hot at night even when it’s quite cool outside. This is partly due to the heat from a built in fridge and no air conditioning in the rooms. I had a room above the kitchens next to the main air ducts which was noisy the entire time. I averaged 3 hrs per night.

Great hotel

Anonymous Business - 13/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

The location and people were good. The rooms however are starting to get old/dated. I booked a room with a king bed. It was 2 single beds pushed together. The TV was old and the plugs were far away from the bed. A few more hooks in the bathroom would help too.

Good stay

Hotel is clean and in a quiet location, staff are friendly and very helpful and welcoming. one downside is not all room have air conditioning, the ones without air con do not have fans either, resulting in the room becoming very warm and uncomfortable to sleep.

Good stay

Tom F Business - 06/03/2021 TripAdvisor review

I was on a business trip to the North East if England and decided to get up the night before. Normally I would use the pool and the gym, have a drink in the bar and a meal, but not in these times. Friendly welcome, upgraded and refurbished room as requested, easy WhatsApp service to order my welcome drink, dinner and some wine. All brought to the room with a smile within 30 - 40 mins! Everything delicious and a really relaxing evening. Breakfast ordered to be picked up at 0800 the next morning. Great night's sleep and up shaved, showered and refreshed the next morning, picked up a tasty breakfast and a cup of tea - sorted out some work and off to my meetings - refreshed, rested and ready to go!.

Dear Thomas Hammond, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Mercure Newcastle George Washington Hotel Golf & Spa. I am sorry that your experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. At Mercure, we strive to provide a superior service experience for every customer; therefore your feedback is very important to us. Please rest assured that we are taking the appropriate measures to address the problem and prevent future occurrence. I note from your reservation that you did indeed request one of our suites which overlook golf. As with all requests we will honour these where we have availability, and also charge a premium for specific room types with additional amenities and benefits. I see from your reservation that you opted for the basic room only package on the lowest possible daily rate for room only. Regrettably due to the popularity of our suites and privilege rooms we are not always able to offer the free upgrade you had requested. I concur that some of our rooms have not yet benefitted from recent upgrades and therefore replacement televisions. this is most certainly in our future plans and had been earmarked for 2020. Regrettably COVID has somewhat impacted our ability to achieve this goal. I also note from our internal log and feedback record, that you did not directly convey your concerns and chose to do this after your departure. It is disappointing that I was not aware of your concerns as I would most certainly acted immediately to assist and remedy the issue. We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly on 01914029988 if you wish to discuss this matter in further details. Sincerely, Ian Gray General Manager

Stayed for one night, we were impressed by the hotel overall. Safety measures were in place and being followed which helped us feel looked after. Didn’t try the restaurant for any meals because we are avoiding indoor eating at present. Room was very spacious and comfortable, bathroom had bath and shower, all very clean. Bed was very comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful

Pleasant stay. Nice hotel and staff.

Paul H Business - 26/09/2020 TripAdvisor review

The room was very hot, window had to be left open all night. Room very large but tired. Very clean. Great breakfast. Allow 45 minutes as they are cooked to order. Great choice. They also have a grab and go option if you are short on time. Very Covid secure.
