It is a small, friendly hotel with lovely views over the river Tyne. You are two minutes away from the High Level Bridge, and some rooms has views of the river. Below, as in most English bed and breakfasts, there is a pub which serves both guests and for the people of the neighborhood after work. The hotel has a dozen rooms, is well situated for sightseeing, but a little less appropriate for a professional visit as it is in the center of the old city, far away from the conference center and in the worst area for traffic. For tourists, it is next to the Castle Keep, the old castle that is now a historical museum.
