Wedding couples can now tie the knot at a multi-million-pound venue on the outskirts of Newcastle.

The Great North Hotel, next to the iconic Three Mile at Gosforth, opened its doors to the public in May 2021 following a £7.5m development.

And now it is preparing to welcome weddings, with a purpose-built function suite and three packages designed to relieve couples of all the pressure of planning.

Central to the hotel’s appeal for wedding parties is its Ouseburn Suite, with private bar, which can cater for between 25 and 80 guests and can be sub-divided to create a smaller space for more intimate celebrations.

To aid couples planning their event the venue – owned by leading leisure operator Malhotra Group plc – has created bronze, silver and gold price packages, all of which include hire of the suite, reception drinks and a three-course wedding breakfast.

Also included are a DJ and LED dancefloor, an evening buffet, red carpet and overnight accommodation for the bride and groom in one of the hotel’s suites following the wedding.

Preferential rates for guests are also provided along with the services of a wedding coordinator, with the differing package price points reflecting the catering options on offer.

However, it is the venue’s ability or provide everything from a function room and catering to accommodation, good city transport links and ample parking all under one roof that hotel bosses believe will appeal to bridal couples.

The 64-bedroom hotel, on the Great North Road, is part of a wider development which includes a restaurant, Pizza Dough Co, a coffee shop and the acclaimed Three Mile pub.

“So not only is the hotel’s Ouseburn Suite a stylish, modern setting for the ceremony and reception, but we can cater for every requirement,” said Marcella Swindell, Hotel Operations Manager.

“Because Great North Hotel is such a new, purpose-built hotel, all the infrastructure is there in terms of parking, catering, transport links and accommodation, so couples can focus on the fun elements, such as dressing the room and choosing flowers and entertainment.

“And, of course, we can even help with them with that – so all they really need to do is enjoy their day.”

Packages start from £2950 and the hotel also offers bespoke wedding packages. More information is available at
