excellent home-stay experience

Gordon is enthusiastic and hospitality! His place is lovely and clean, with a cute garden. Good access to bus stop, not far from Newcastle city centre. I enjoyed a lot and strongly recommend Gordon's place!

Owner's Response: Absolutely great couple. Jiayu and Lu were really good guests, clean, tidy, very good to have as guests. Did them a Traditional Sunday Dinner, in return Jiayu did me this most amazing Chinese meal the following night. I would recommend this couple for any stay. 5 Star people *****

BRILLIANT HOST, BRILLIANT HOME!!

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say. I have stayed in many B&Bs and Private Homes in my time, but this one, by far the BEST I have EVER stayed in!!! The house is so easy to get to. Once here the Bus Service is great, 5v mins walk from Home, every 10 minutes into Newcastle. Metro is 10 minute drive away.

The House, clean, very comfortable, nice touches from Gordon in bedroom. Robe to wear in bathroom, towels, and Wicker basket with biscuits, crisps, snacks etc. Information sheet on area, and wifi details.

GREAT HOST, GREAT HOME 5 STAR ***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
