Last month we were lucky enough to stay at the gorgeous Jesmond Dene House as we joined our friends in celebrating their fairytale wedding at the hotel. We are no strangers to the hotel and in the past have enjoyed a fantastic fine dining experience to celebrate my mum's 50th birthday in hotel restaurant, afternoon tea with Jack (and Sweep) in the comfortable lounge and even an overnight stay to celebrate our anniversary a few years ago. It's fair to say Jesmond Dene House is definitely one of our favourite spots in Newcastle and I couldn't wait to spend the night once again.
As we wouldn't be spending too long in our bedroom we opted for a classic room which is the smallest type of room the hotel offers but still cozy and comfortable with lots of extra treats.
Our bathroom was beautiful with a super powerful shower, luxury Arran Aromatics toiletries, soft towels and fluffy bathrobes and slippers. Perfect for a lazy morning!
The tea and coffee in our room was far more than a kettle and a couple of teabags - the selection was AMAZING! We were spoilt for choice when we woke up in the morning with freshly ground coffee, a huge selection of teas to try and fresh milk delivered instantly to our door.
Our bedroom was very comfortable and we enjoyed a wonderful night's sleep after dancing the night away with the wedding party in the Great Hall downstairs. One of the things I love most about Jesmond Dene House is their fantastic breakfasts which use fresh and local ingredients and can be delivered right to your room! Definitely one of the best breakfasts we've ever eaten and perfect for the morning after the night before.
With a late check out time of 12noon it was wonderful to be able to relax, watch some tv, read the complimentary magazines and enjoy our bowl of fruit in absolute peace and quiet - I'm sure most parents will agree, this was a real treat indeed.
We couldn't leave Jesmond Dene without a quick stroll through the adjoining woods and park before heading home and back to reality after our peaceful retreat.
Midweek Bed and Breakfast is available at Jesmond Dene House from just £140 for 2 adults including full breakfast, time to relax with the papers, a late noon check out, free wi-fi and parking.
