Okay room. Quirky but few niggles. Poor restaurant experience.

Reviewed 13 october, 2021

Found this on TripAdvisor. Probably a bit expensive for what it was (we did DB&B). The room is good. Probably the only thing that you could mark it down on are the poor sound proofing, the cleanliness (the landing carpet looks like it hasn't been hoovered for several days) and the hanging off toilet seat. The room a definite 4 star review. The restaurant was sold as being quite high end. Definitely not. A really, really noisy pub with okay grub. A very roudy group spoiled it. We couldn't hear ourselves think. A two star for it. If the bill had been a hundred pounds less, then it would be reasonable value. So, three stars from us.

Poor service

Reviewed 19 august, 2021

Entered the premises hoping for a tea, hot chocolate and perhaps a light breakfast with my 7 year old daughter. Stood about far too long trying to attract someones attention, not quite sure whether to take a seat or not. Eventually found someone to ask who then said he had to check with someone else. Thought this was strange but waited a few more minutes before someone else approached and asked us what we wanted. I explained, to be told that they are still serving breakfast and had no room for us. There was no compassion for the wait, no explanation for the several empty tables. It was 10.45 and visually not very busy. I made a comment that there were no opening times on the door and that would be a good idea to which no comment was made. Certainly not somewhere I'd want to go back to and appeared to be unwelcoming to anyone other than staying guests. If this is the case then please add a sign on the door.

Fantastic Place to stay with great staff!

Reviewed 30 june, 2021

We stayed at the William De Percy for the night as part of the coast and country two day package (one night at the Joiners Arms, Newton by the sea - also great). The stay coincided with my partners birthday and she was very much looking forward to it, having seen the amazing pictures of the gardens. We had a great stay, the staff were brilliant and couldn’t have done any more to make it a memorable trip, special mention to Mark who arranged dinner surprise for my partner and breakfast on the gardens terrace (the gardens were in use for a wedding on our arrival) and Sarah who looked after us at breakfast. Thanks to the lovely lady in the gardens who chatted to us and told us what to see while walking round, sorry didn’t catch your name. We had a great stay, would love to return and can thoroughly recommend!

Disappointing compared to their sister venue

Reviewed 27 june, 2021

We stayed here in June after our trip was rearranged due to Covid-19. We’d previously stayed in their sister hotel (Joiner’s arms) and had high expectations as previous stays had been brilliant. Check in was great with a friendly welcome, but we’d paid for a Grande room and for the price were expecting something at least at the same level as the joiners arms. Unfortunately the room wasn’t as expected, it was decorated nicely and had a comfy bed but for the price we couldn’t see the advance of paying the 3rd level price band, the photos on the website didn’t really represent what we had. Again unfortunately as there was a wedding on the grounds and outdoor patio were closed (which the hotel did ring and tell us 2 days before we arrived) but that left little to do once we arrived. We had a meal in the restaurant which was below average, given the menu is identical to that of the joiners arms we expected the same high quality but it was very bland and disappointing. The bed was very comfortable but the wedding that was on was very noisy and we were woken repeatedly throughout the night up to 2am. We could hear staff in the corridors with the wedding guests but they did nothing to try and reduce the noise. Breakfast was great, and once we were able to see the gardens they were outstanding, however then had to check out. Ultimately we wouldn’t come back, but wouldn’t hesitate to stay at the joiners arms again so anyone looking for a recommendation we’d suggest looking there instead.

Friendly but disappointing

Reviewed 24 june, 2021

We booked our one-night stopover at the William de Percy (WdP) as part of a Northumbrian tour which also included a stay at the Joiners Arms. The WdP is easy to find, right on the busy main road. If you arrive later than expected you'll have to fight for parking. Check-in was pleasant, hotel staff charming. Thanks. Our room was - surprising, dark and unfriendly. Two unfinished brick walls. There was a small wardrobe that looked like it was about to fall down after several incarnations. Rainfall shower was nice. The water wasn't warm. Don't take this as criticism. As we said at checkout - this is the aesthetic. For the money though - we'd have appreciated a bit less shabby chic. The overall impression was that the whole place needed a bit of a refurb. The restaurant was pleasant. We were looking forward to a "gastro-pub" meal. Disappointingly small menu. Halloumi Fries to start. Four chips arranged on a plate. OK. The staff were pleasant. Our waitress explained that as the hotel was so short of staff they were bringing staff up from Newcastle. No bother, Covid and all. I think that crepe was off when we were there. So my partner had fish and chips and I had a 'stottie' with fish and a side of chips. We ordered badly. My partner couldn't eat the oily slab of fried fish she was presented with. I had something like a massive burger bun with some fried fish parts, lettuce and a smear of mayonnaise. We looked forward to better meals later on in the holiday. Breakfast - I had the vegan (vegetarian?) breakfast. Frankly, I wish I hadn't bothered. Service was fine until it broke down completely under the weight of half a dozen diners. We left. Pleasant staff at checkout comped the bar bill after pressing us for feedback. But we didn't come away feeling good.
