Jesmond Executive Villas4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
It was a bit confusing when we arrived as there are several types of accommodation in this convoluted precinct. Parking was good once we knew where to go. The outside appearance of the unit was not very impressive. The inside was good and the place was clean. We expected to stay in one of the brick buildings but found ourselves in modular units at the back. Turned out it was OK. The pool is very small and the photos make it more than it actually is. We had an issue where water was coming into our bathroom (which by the way was huge) from the unit next door. I reported it and was told the maintenance person would be around in ten minutes. After half an hour we left. We found out later that they did go in but we were not given any feedback or told they had been in our unit in our absence. It would have been nice to know. All in all it was a good location as the local shopping centre was across the road with plenty of eating venues. Be warned the university students take over the hotel opposite on Thursday nights so don't plan to eat there. There was no eating available there when we visited anyway. The noise did not come into our unit though, thank goodness. For the money it was good value. The documentation we were given on arrival was a bit out of date as you needed to receive a message regarding the code for the pool etc. and not what was on the sheet.
Jesmond Executive Villas are really nice to stay. Plenty of rooms providing you book well ahead of your date of travel. Although this time we found our room rather small, it was clean. Atmosphere around the premises are good and there is a nice pool to swim in. BBQ area is also good
Stayed there 4 times. Each time the room gets smaller and my reviews drop a star. This time the whole room was just big enough to accommodate the bed. The bathroom was cupboard size. Definitely not good value any more.
Room 51. Seems there a few very similar ones looking at the site map but my 1 Bedroom apartment with spa was clearly a converted garage and not done very well. Lots of wasted space in the bathroom takes away from the small living space which was a kitchenette with a lounge and a cupboard designed to take away the fact it was hiding a brick wall where the garage door used to be. There was no table or chairs, no natural light in the living space, bare brick walls, a front door that didn't properly seal and a shower over the spa which without a door or curtain meant you showered the bathroom. I stayed multiple nights and my colleague stayed one night also in a 1 bedroom apartment with spa but the difference between the two rooms was incredible. If I had that room I would have been writing a positive review. It had a nice little balcony, dual sliding glass doors a nice little living space with a 4 seat table and a more sensible bedroom/bathroom layout. Essentially it could be a nice spot to stay but the room I had soured the experience for me so being hit and miss on the room it's unlikely I would stay again.
The rooms were very clean. We stayed in a studio apartment which was nice but very small. The parking was hard to find as cars were tightly packed in making it difficult to get around. The room was also hard to find as it was located on the back of the building and accessed through a gateway. The room had coffee and tea making facilities but the Jug looked like someone had tried to cook in it. It had food stuck inside it. Overall the room was good. It would be difficult to access if you had mobility issues as you couldn’t park close to the room and the walk to the room was a long one. But I would definitely go back again.
The room is small, but suited my son & I. There was a joining room, so we heard the neighbours none stop through the joining door. Got woken up early as they had a small child. There is parking but not enough spaces. There's a pub across the road & shops as well. It's about a 15minute drive to beach.
Pet friendly. Small room. Terrible cot (no mattress) for bub, had to layer with towels etc. Some noise but all stoped by curfew (10pm). Easy check out. Keyless/Code entry to room very convenient. Good facilities.
This place was awful. I felt unsafe walking around the area at night. There were fireworks let off in the middle of the night in the car park. Our car got parked in every night so we couldn't leave in the mornings. Basic items missing from the room like hand towels. Broken bed - wheel fell off so had to sleep on a slant every night. I would not recommend staying here with kids- strangers knocking on the door in the middle of the night.
I booked a Studio Unit at the Jesmond Executive (definitely not Executive, don't be fooled by the name) Villas. This has to be one of the worst accommodation stays I have ever had, and I have been in many. I honestly don't know where to start, but have rated this on Booking.com as well, where if you read others reviews you will find similar comments. Perhaps if you want to know more ask me as there are so many points which where terrible. I have photos and video footage but frankly I cant be bothered posting it. Advice is just don't stay there or the Cosmopolitan, where my friends were staying and is also owned by the same company, AVOID at all costs.
Wish I had read the reviews ( 80 plus 1 more Terrilbes ) before booking into this overpriced ($200) , noisy , crowded and not customer friendly motel . We paid $20 extra for dog friendly room up steep steps on first floor . Room 4 is not only noisy but very crowded no room for suitcases etc . No shower only a steep dangerous spa that when using shower head spreads water every where . 24 hour trucking noise from highway 10 feet a way . Very limited parking in a very congested and badly designed grounds
