What people are saying about Dorset Arms Hotel




Single night stay - Rating 5/5

I was pleasantly surprised by the warmth of both the staff and the patrons of this hotel;beautiful and clean lovely beds and very well maintained (although too soft a mattress for me) however I must state that I love a hard bed always have.I looked for dust and I am really saddened to say...I COULD NOT FIND ANY!I have stayed at the Burj Al Arab at a cost of £5k per night and found dirt.To be told "Don't be a stranger"gave me an amazing feeling of genuine warmth and kindness..I will definitely return sometime later this year!Diolch yn Fawr

We reached the Dorset Arms after cycling the length of Hadrian's Wall. Simon who was there to greet us made sure our bikes were safely locked away and secure so we could just relax after our exhausting ride.The pizza restaurant was delicious and the locals in the bar were very friendly making us all feel welcome.The room was very comfortable and the area very quiet making sleeping easy.

Lovely hotel - Rating 4/5

My friends and I stayed at the Dorset Arms hotel for two nights for a friends wedding reception. The staff are welcoming and friendly. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. We had a full English breakfast which was cooked as we had asked. There is ample parking and lovely gardens with plenty of seating. It is within walking distance of Walsend high street for shopping and there are buses close by should you wish to go into Newcastle town centre.I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Excellent room and lovely staff! - Rating 4/5

We travelled to The Dorset Arms to spend the night celebrating a family birthday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the room very clean with every amenity provided. The bathroom could do with a brighter lightbulb or replace the one above the mirror (us girls need to see to apply make up). The bed was very comfy and I was particularly pleased to see black out blinds at the windows. Sadly didn't make breakfast as 8am was a little early after a late night.Would definitely stay again on our next visit up North!

I could not have had a warmer welcome. Stan's your man at the Dorset Arms Hotel. I arrived on Christmas Eve, was well fed and had a great nights sleep in a comfortable room. Yes there was music from the bar but it was Christmas and yes it's located in Wallsend. A real gem in a close community. Thanks again Stan for everything. Happy New Year.

A lovely family friendly stay - Rating 5/5

Made to feel very welcome and was very happy with our room. Room clean and accessories added a lovely touch to the room.Breakfast was lovely and again made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. I have to say it was lovely to stay at a place where they do not overprice breakfast like some places, really reasonable prices. The only preferance i would of liked is not having to check in at the bar but that is more my personality rather an issue as again no problems experienced. Would happly stay again

Ideal location just outside Newcastle. - Rating 5/5

We stayed at the Dorset Arms for a total of 5 nights with our two dogs. The proprietor Stan the man and his staff where just great, friendly and made us feel very comfortable. Having two dogs we could not use the restaurant for breakfast, not a problem they set up a table for us in the bar area. Our room no.1 was large with an equally large wardrobe. The bathroom I cannot fault also very large with all the neccasary toiletries .The gardens are top notch great place to relax and have beer. I've stayed at a few B&B's in my time but this beat the lot. Add that northern hospitality to a reasonably priced accommodation what more could you ask for.

Lovely stay as usual - Rating 4/5

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Dorset Arms. My son and family live nearby in Wallsend but don't have room to put us up and we love the welcome and hospitality at the Dorset Arms. The gardens are delightful with beautiful baskets and coloutful planters everywhere. The rooms are clean and adequate for a night or two or even longer. With nicely appointed bathroom and comfortable beds as well as flat screen tv and tea &coffee making facilities it is spot on. Also large wardrobes are great with plenty of storage space. The bar is friendly and prices are reasonable. I had the continental breakfast which is included and my husband had a very nice bacon sandwich. Stan the manager is a lovely man and always welcomes us back. I would definately recommend a stay at the Dorset Arms.

Review - Rating 4/5

We found everyone friendly and helpful, and enjoyed chatting in the bar in spite of the fact that the juke-box was painfully loud (could this be the reason Vinnie is stressed and pulling out her feathers?!) Our room (room 2) was also noisy, from chatter in the bar below and from a loud tv in the room next door. The bed under the window had mattress springs uncomfortably near the surface, but as I'm used to sleeping with discomfort (arthritis) I still slept well! It was great that our dog could be in the room with us and was made welcome in the bar. The dining room and the breakfast were lovely. We hope to be back at the end of March.

We stayed at the Dorset Arms for 1 x night when attending an interview for University.We arrived fairly late but received a friendly welcome.We needed assistance with a couple of things from both the member of staff on duty and later from Stan, the owner, following an issue with the bathoom door at 10.00 at night, the issue was sorted without question and Stan couldn't have been more helpful.Overall the rooms were comfortable and fine for what we required.A very accommodating owner, many thanks.

Overnight at the Dorset - Rating 4/5

We booked an overnight stay to attend a funeral. To be honest we chose the Dorset because it was convenient for the church.We travelled up early and needed to changebefore heading for the church. So around 10am we were given access to the room which was really nice with a large bathroom and comfortable beds.Later we enjoyed a drink in the bar before bed.Breakfast was really good, the manager and staff were helpful and friendly and we will stay here again for sure!

Very welcoming stay - Rating 4/5

We stayed at the Dorset Arms Hotel after finishing walking Hadrian's Wall. The friendliness and welcome by Lauren was fantastic, nothing was a bother to her, and she really made us feel relaxed and at home. She was running the bar by herself that night, yet still found time to find us towels when there were none left in the room, cook us dinner, and look after us at the bar - as well as looking after the busy and thirsty Saturday night patrons, and the band members. There was also no pressure to be out early the next morning which was great after a long week of walking, and despite arriving late to breakfast we still got a bacon sandwich and were allowed to sleep in until we needed to leave at midday!There was a mix-up with the rooms and we ended up in a twin instead of a double room, and the shower door in room 2 needs to be fixed properly so it stays on its hinges, but otherwise the room was comfortable and had everything we needed.

Great place to stay - Rating 5/5

Stayed here at the end of our Hadrians Wall walk, great place to stay just 10 mins on foot from the end of the National Trail and saves the hassle of sorting out public transport. Stan even let us leave our cars in his car park for the week - we dropped the cars at the start of the week and caught the train to Carlisle.Rooms were clean and tidy and a great breakfast to finish things off.

Dorset Arms Wallsend on Tyne - Rating 5/5

A nice little hotel, spotlessly clean with efficient, friendly staff and excellent value for money. The bar is well patronised by the locals, always a good sign. Food is simple, down to earth and excellent. No problem going back there.
