What our guests say...

  • Deluxe suite excellent. Separate bedrooms both with TV. Main bedroom had a kitchen area. Very large shower room. We had already eaten before we arrived there. Wish we hadn,t because there is a lovely pizza restaurant attached to the hotel. Very nice lounge area to relax and watch TV. Everything was perfect.


  • The comfortable coffee lounge was very welcome after a good day out. We ate for the 2 nights we were booked in at the 'Pazzo' as value for money and quality food were excellent.

  • Stayed in the Hotel52 a few times now and have yet to have a bad experience. Really relaxed friendly people/staff. Always a smile and a hello.

    Dave B,

  • I found this online after a business trip to the North East was put forward at short notice. I didn't arrive until late but there were still staff on hand to help me with my stay and offer advice on where my meeting was in Consett. The room was very nice including comfy bed and very nice shower. The heating in the room was completely controllable. Very reasonable price including freshly cooked breakfast. Will use again regularly for the evening before a business trip to the area.
