The Park Hotel in 1939
History of the Park Hotel
As a local icon we always feel it necessary to give as much information to our patrons as we can on the history of the Hotel.
The Park Hotel was designed and built by local architect J.R. Wallace and was completed in 1939.
The Art Deco style of the hotel has made it a prominent feature of the Tynemouth coastline.
Originally the hotel was built with 30 bedrooms the hotel was regarded as one of the most modern establishments of its kind anywhere in the country.
Over the years the hotel has been owned and managed by a number of proprietors and is now privately owned by a local family.
Over the last few years the family have heavily invested a renovation program including the addition of further bedrooms and the addition of extra function rooms.
55 en-suite Bed Rooms
Today the hotel features not only 55 en suite bedrooms but a variety of different sized function suites including a full sized ballroom.
Over the years the hotel has played a large part of local life having hosted thousands of weddings and events.

Central and Beautiful Seaside Location
Located quite literally in throwing distance of Tynemouth Longsands almost all of our rooms have beautiful views of the North East Coast.
Not only do we have the views but because of our location we're in east access of Newcastle City Centre, Airport and also North Shields Ferry Terminal. The North East has a huge amount to offer tourists and business people alike and because of our location you can see them all.
What a beautiful hotel and what a location, with an incredible view to the sea, myself and my wife really enjoyed our stay and plan on returning as soon as we can. Derek Dunn - Company CEO
