Well worth a visit.
We have visited twice in the last 12 months. Excellent hotel with good bar & restaurant facilities. Well situated to visit local attractions eg Beamish, Angel of the North & the Penshaw Monument. My only negative is the walls of the hotel are thin so if you have noisy neighbours they will disturb your nights sleep.
