We stayed at Mill Dam when we went to see a gig at the very nearby theatre (only 1 minute walk away). It was so convenient, and for the price quoted we were not really expecting much, and it was booked more for convenience. However on arrival we found the the rooms to be very comfortable, warm and clean, The...

We stayed here for two nights for a family party. Rooms were priced between £25 - £35 per night. Whilst it isn't luxury, it is a good value budget guesthouse. Could be a bit cleaner (dust in places, marks on bedsheets etc) but the rooms are well equipped with TV, ironing board and iron, ensuite and hairdryers. Tea and coffee...

My family and I stayed at the Mill Dam Guest House for a one night stay while attending the Rugby League Magic Weekend at St James' Park Newcastle. The Mill Dam is in a very pleasant setting, close to the river and some excellent pubs and eateries. It is not the most attractive accommodation we have ever stayed at, but...

Overnight stop ideal. A nice big room on the ground floor with a large wet room so ideal for disabled. The wet room could do with a shower curtain to contain the spray as the whole floor ended up wet!!. Location good as on the quayside also Asda nearby. Would stay again.

Never again........................................... We booked this as we were going to a concert at the Customs house and this was an ideal place as it was literally 60 seconds away, I had looked at the reviews and thought not too bad, I will probably take reviews with a pinch of salt after this. On arrival didn't look too bad, room was...

Booked a family room for one night. £60. Good double and single beds. Large bathroom area that is suitable for guests with a disability. Tea, coffee, hot chocolate available. We thought we would get some noise from outside or upstairs with us being on the ground floor but we had a very quiet night. No frills but it provided us...

Mill Dam seems to be popular with longer-term guests and locums. No frills and reasonably priced, but very convenient for the Customs House and a couple of nearby pubs. It is 'room only', so make your own arrangements for breakfast. But with ASDA at a couple of minutes walk, not much of a problem. We had the misfortune to be...

I was put into room 5 there is no windows in this room so no natural ventilation. It was very hot in this room with the radiator switched off. I had two bad nights where I couldn't get to sleep as the room is to hot. The guest house did provide a fan in the room but this made no...
