Tranquil location with good road links

This guest house's location in a quiet residential area with good road links nearby appealed to motorists in particular as it was only about five minutes' drive from the A1.

According to many visitors, this small guest house benefited from service with a personal touch provided by friendly and welcoming hosts who had plenty of local knowledge to share.

Negative Reviews


Occasional criticism of rooms

A few critics suggested the rooms at A1 Summerville Guest House had a slightly dated feel and would benefit from being given a more contemporary look. There were also claims that certain rooms were a little cramped.


Reports of nuisance noise

There were occasional reports from light sleepers that noise from connecting rooms sometimes travelled too easily though thin walls.


Suburban location wasn't ideal for non-drivers

Some guests felt the location was a little out-of-the-way for non-motorists as it was in a residential area on the southern side of the Tyne Valley and off the Metro network. However, there were bus stops nearby for easy trips to Newcastle city centre.
