Poor toilet

Hotel a little tired and need of a spruce up.

Toilet in room did not flush and shower sprayed everywhere except on me. Food was good however for that class of hotel

Great accommodation in a lovely location

Stayed in South Shields whilst visiting family and very pleased with the Sir William Fox Hotel.

It is a beautiful building which the owners are taking great care and time to restore. I look forward to stopping there again next time I visit family.

William Fox Hotel

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it was spacious and well kept.

The room was a standard room with a very comfy bed, we got a great nights sleep. Breakfast was nice, but the only downside, there were no condiments on the table nor were we offered any. Overall a nice hotel and we would stay again

A short & enjoyable stay at th Sir William Fox Hotel

Booking this was very straightforward.

Our room was surprisingly spacious, welcomingly warm and comfortable after a long tiring journey in bitterly cold conditions. The staff could not have been more friendly or obliging.

Breakfasts were generous, served hot & plentiful. We only had one evening meal in the hotel. The quality was very good, although not a large menu. Drinks were served on demand up until 11pm, which suited us well. We didn't experience any disturbances during the night, despite being on the ground floor, athough it could be different during a busier season.

Our only criticism was that we had to go to the front of the hotel to enquire how to access the car park. That wasn't a big deal though &, on the whole, our stay was a really pleasant experience.
