Where a love of food, drink and a good night’s sleep go hand in hand.

This four-star boutique hotel is in the heart of Newcastle city centre. Newcastle Central train station, St James’ Park football stadium, the Theatre Royal and the main shopping high street are only a short walk away, as well as lots of bars, cafes and restaurants.

But just stop right there … because you don’t need to venture further than the hotel restaurant to find a fine dining experience. Situated on the ground floor of Hotel Indigo, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and serves locally sourced produce with a range of regionally inspired daily specials.

The venue is running a great offer at the moment called ‘Cheers And Chill’ where you can enjoy an overnight stay for two at Hotel Indigo Newcastle with breakfast and dinner in Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill, and a bottle of Prosecco in your room on arrival, for £99 per room. Cheers to that!



Found on the outskirts of Durham in the Tees Valley and surrounded by 150 acres of historical landscape, come to Wynyard Hall when you want to get away from it all.

In the four-star hotel you’ll find 19 bedrooms and suites, each room complete with a bespoke design – from country classic to bright and breezy – as well as king-size beds, complimentary WiFi and Temple Spa toiletries. When staying over, guests also get an exclusive discount of spa treatments, as well as an offer to include a 2-hour spa visit in their package for £20 per person.

However, if you want to go all out, then you must stay in one of Wynyard’s five cottages. Nestled in the grounds, each cottage sleeps up to six guests and has its own private outdoor hot tub for ultimate rest and relaxation.

Just a short walk away from the cottages it Wynyard’s renowned two AA rosette restaurant, The Wellington, which offers an ever-changing menu of modern British dishes created with only the finest local ingredients, with many sourced from Wynyard Hall’s Edible Garden. At The Wellington guests can enjoy seasonal dining experiences, traditional afternoon tea, Sunday lunch, and fine dining – and with an all day dining menu available too, you can eat what you want, when you want.


This is a hidden gem that you need to know about. Branded as a ‘restaurant with rooms, a pub and a whole lot of character’, expect opulent, gorgeous interiors, top notch food and a wine list well worth your time.

The restaurant serves bistro-style food using good, honest ingredients, while general manager Pierre Bertolotti sources unusual and lesserknown wines from all over the world, and there’s also an impressive range of beers, spirits and cocktails available at the bar too.

You’ll also find 10 beautiful, Instaworthy bedrooms that will have you swooning. Some come with free-standing copper bathtubs and huge seven foot beds, while others have a private hot tub or a sauna.
