We were wanting a place as a base for visiting sights in Northumberland, the New Kent was ideally placed for our days out.
The hotel is only a few metres away from the restaurants and bars of Jesmond, but we never heard any noise from the nightlife - always good
The room was a little on the small side, but that isn't an issue for us. It was clean and tidy with housekeeping everyday. The bathroom looked relatively new.
Receptionists were always very good and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.
Breakfast was mostly very good, anything cooked was wonderful but the 'fresh' croissants and banana loaf looked a little stale after the first morning.
The only real downside was the noise from the plumbing, early mornings you could hear when most people were washing, showering etc.
Overall we would recommend stay here - maybe bring earplugs for the mornings!More
