By September 4, 2014Uncategorized

When looking for a bed and breakfast in Newcastle upon Tyne, look no further than the Rosebery Hotel, a Jesmond B&B which has lots to offer its guests in terms of comfort, value for money and style. Also, Jesmond is a lovely, leafy, smart, residential suburb of Newcastle, so we’re only 5 minutes from Newcastle city centre, which has a range of activities, shops, venues, bars, cafes and restaurants for our guests to enjoy. Whether you want to spend a whole day shopping, or you want to take a stroll through the gorgeous Jesmond Dene, you couldn’t be in a more perfect place than the Rosebery Hotel!

Jesmond is a suburban, Edwardian area with plenty of green spaces, which include the afore mentioned Jesmond Dene Park, and tree lined streets, which give you a sense of tranquillity and you don’t feel like you’re in a major city. Historically, Jesmond was an area where many of the North East’s ship builders built large detached villas, so there remains today, some beautiful examples of Edwardian and Victorian housing stock to ogle at on your leisurely stroll around the area.

For a guest who has already chosen to stay in the Jesmond area, or a guest who is looking for a hotel in Jesmond, we are in an ideal location to explore the region.
