Reasonably priced, convenient to railroad, surprisingly modern. Large rooms and decent restaurant in the lobby. Surprised also this my first visit to the area the vibrancy, hustle and bustle of a much larger city particularly at this time of year with all the holiday shoppers out in force. Lots to do within walking distance and good bus service for more distant points. I enjoyed going through the Victoria tunnel built for transporting coal in the 1800's used as shelter for as many as 7000 people during WWII. Beamish museum not seen in the travel brochures nonetheless a worthy place to visit. A night at the theatre royal was time well spent saw Kinky Boots a lively show apparently pleased the audience. All in all plenty around to do without much effort.
