I would reccomend to a friend

I had an enjoyable stay.

The Landlord and Landlady are friendly, the room is clean and tidy and the breakfast is very nice Note: The room that shows as a room with shower comes with a toilet outside the room (Not shared), which isn't mentioned on Laterooms. I was kindly given an available room that was full en-suite, as I thought this is what I had booked The room was fairly small, with a very comfortable bed and an excellent power shower. There is a fridge and a safe in the wardrobe, though this does cause one small problem, as it leaves little room to hang clothes. There is a decent selection of tea, coffee and biscuits in the room Breakfast was well cooked and there is a decent choice of cooked food, as well as cereals and juices This B&B is located just a 2 minute walk from the beach, 10 minute walk from the Metro (Good links to Newcastle and Sunderland) and 15 minute walk from the Shields Ferry. Buses run right past the B&B and there is plenty of free parking on the street out front and down side streets There is a nice pub right opposite and the road is known for having lots of Indian restaurants (As well as some Italians, Chinese and chips shops). If you like Indian food, the quality and prices are good, because they are all competing with each other. If you don't, the B&B does not allow Indian food to be brought in, so you won't have to put up with the smell All in all, this is a very clean, tidy B&B, in a good location, run by a friendly couple, with good food and at a good price - Great value for money.

Great place to stay

This was a birthday treat for my mum.it is ideally situated 5 mins from the pier,beach and amusements and also only 5 mins from the shopping area.

Just what you want in a guest house

Lovely friendly owners, quiet, clean and beautifully decorated room, fine breakfast.

Guest House located right on the main road to the beach and shops with restaurants everwhere. A better stay than my colleagues had in another hotel.

Short Notice Break

We only booked this a fortnight before a family party in South Shields, but most Guest Houses had availability.

This particular one had excellent reviews, which proved correct. We both travel a lot with work, and i have to say, i found this venue excellent value. Positives, A Comfy Bed, Very Clean Room, great shower, and excellent Breakfast. Whilst a few spaces exist on the main road itself, Parking was available is in the side streets a short walk away. Slight negatives, A little noisy on the road at night. We also changed rooms with my Parents on arrival, as the stairs to their 3rd floor room were a struggle for them. Otherwise, an excellent stay, and excellent hosts.
