So for the second year in a row the Guernsey National Cricket Squad found itself in the North East and again being superbly looked after by Martin and his team. Having arrived from various destinations and traveled across the Channel and up the length of England a swift check in was great before a T20 that night. Pre-orders on dining made that slick and the food options were great and if not they were tailored to suit. Staff as ever were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The facilities for a sports group are fantastic and you feel like superstars. Anyone touring in these parts will find the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead the perfect base.
