The Rosebery Hotel, Newcastle upon Tyne
May 15, 2016
The Rosebery Hotel is quirky and cool in equal amounts. Occupying an Edwardian building in trendy Jesmond and just under a mile from Newcastle’s city centre, you’ll find up-cycling and off-the-wall high end design at every turn (and in every room!)
What’s fabulous about this hotel is that it follows no rules and could never be replicated (although we’d love to see a chain across the UK…) With vintage beds, mesmerising chandeliers and the biggest roll top baths you’ll find in any boutique hotel, the Rosebery is sure to leave a lasting impression.
If you happen to be in the hotel between 5-6pm, then you can take advantage of the vintage cocktail trolley offering deluxe cocktails, fresh popcorn and doggie treats including doggie beer and even ‘pupcorn’.
Furniture and furnishings all have an eclectic past life! Vintage beds from France have been lovingly restored, Chelsea silk has been used for many of the curtains and fireplaces have come from skips to be gorgeously upscaled.
And the person behind this unique and charming hotel? Owner Janet Stansfield who has a keen eye for up-cycling and can turn anyone’s trash into treasures which you’d never recognise! Somewhat of a local celebrity, Janet has taken part in BBC interior design shows and writes a number of features on interior and home improvements for newspapers across the North East.
Creating unique, bespoke interiors with humour and flare are Janet’s number one passion – evident from the decor of the 11 hotel rooms, with each one completely individual in style.
The Rosebery Hotel has to be seen to be believed. Style, comfort and character with a huge dollop of personality in every boutique room.
