    Lovely sea view, comfortable bed

    Needs updating, scruffy looking, carpets threadbare, shower not working properly (only a trickle of water) arrived on Monday went into lift where there was a piece of pizza on the floor, departed Wednesday used lift again pizza still there! Went to the bar for a night cap - no ice for my baileys!

    The Rex Hotel was perfect location overlooking the beach and very close to the nightlife of Whitley Bay. The rooms were spacious and comfy and the receptionist made us feel very welcome - great holiday.

    Location, staff and room spacious for cost.

    Excellent value seaside hotel

    Can be noisy due to location of clubs, but shut the window and the noise is all but excluded

    It must have been a fantastic hotel when it was first opened (1890s?). Rooms were fine & for the price I don't know how they manage to run it so well! Good choice of restaurants within 5 min. Walk.

    The building has seen better days but then for a short stay it is excellent.

    Free car park

    Staff were ignorant, noise from the disco was deafening, very late night revellers stumbling around in the corridor until 4 in the morning and monosylabic waiter with food stains all over his cloths. What more could you ask for!

    we could check in after midnight, there's a hotel porter - we could have a couple of drinks after a long day/drive - the porter set us up for breakfast as we had to leave before the cooks arrived - great bloke - clean pressed sheets - even though we were just using as a stopover the room had a great view of the whole seafront - generally happy with what we got for the money

    the hotel reception is past its best-jaded maybe, the drinks were a little pricey, the bathroom had mold in it-no extraction fan, doors had holes knocked through them, bathroom tile grout was blackened, our door had been knocked in and repaired, whole place just tired

    the staff were fantastic they couldn't do enough for us.especially the receptionist he was great . for a hen weekend this hotel was brilliant wouldn't recommend it for families, we took ear plugs has i had read other peoples reviews so had no problems sleeping.breakfast was lovely and nothing was to much for the staff serving it . had a lovely weekend .

    the cleanliness, bedding and towels were clean but not sure what the cleaners do, we had a dirty sock under the bed,broken cigarette in a draw, pubic hairs on the bathroom floor and facial hair shavings all over the sink area and lots of cob webs,this really does let the hotel down and cleanliness costs nothing, come on rex hotel get those cleaners cleaning.

    Good location, good value for money

    Room furniture needs repair or upgrade, loud music at night from a nearby club

    The Hotel is on a very good location and the rooms are not expensive, the staff is friendly and open!

    The rooms are not very clean, special the bathrooms! They offer renovated rooms but only half the rooms are ready and the other half is still old and not in good condition, They have wireless internet connection but it is very slow and for transfer a small file it need hours if it works at all!

    Excelent view to the see

    The fact that I was allowed to order a take away meal to be delivered to the hotel. I'm disabled and didn't fancy walking around to find somewhere to eat so this was very handy for me.

    The view from my room was not very good but since I booked at short notice I can't complain too much.

    I asked the male receptionist before arriving if he could possible give me a room as near to the roomI had for my honeymoon 55 years ago.He did it was great to return to a brilliant room as before with a magnificent view. Thank you.I Hope to return again soon

    The only thing I found wrong was the toilet it didnt flush very well Needed to flush it more than once. Lack of water pressure I think.

    The bed was very comfortable,i normally can only sleep for 6 hours per night but i managed a good 8 hours in this one! Also we had a fantastic sea view and breakfast was good too.

    Could do with a splash of paint here and there.
