Moorings Hotel visit.
The stay overall was very good, the hotel and room were clean and the bonus of having the Italian bistro next door was brilliant.( good food and caring chef ) In respect of the team on duty, everyone was very friendly and attentive making the stay very enjoyable and would have no hesitation staying next time i am up in the north, a big thanks to everyone.

GNR stay over
Arrived early and room was already available, staff were really helpful offering to help with bags etc. restaurant food was really good, and staff very friendly. I called in the week asking if I could get an early breakfast as I was running GNR , they couldn’t open early but went out and bought me the breakfast items I’d mentioned specially. Needs a little updating but everything was clean tidy and professional and very friendly.

One night of comfort
An overnight stop following a long day at Beamish Museum. The Moorings provided all that we needed close by before a long journey home next day. The restaurant staff were excellent, recommending excellent food that was good value for money.

Lovely stay and clean and comfortable room at a very good price Just lacking in hosting When given the key we were shown to our room but no other information passed on or anything in the room we had to ask what time and where breakfast would be served Also when we went to breakfast ourselves and 4 other tables were sat in the restaurant waiting for 25 minutes before seeing or being acknowledged by a member of staff and being shown where the coffee was it was a shame as the cooked breakfast was delicious and lovely accommodation as I say just lacking in a host to welcome you

A good location for celebrations and weekends.
The Moorings changed hands six months before our visit. Interestingly it is now more of an Italian Restaurant with an accomodation block. The staff are friendly and helpful. The only down point is breakfast is basic and isn't served until 9.00am.
