Great for short weekend break

Hotel nothing to look at from the outside but was ok inside, stag furniture in the room which might not be to everyone's taste.

Very quiet and cracking breakfast.

very good as ever

We have been staying at the Sea Hotel since 2004.

Only once disappointed. Eveything is very good.

Would definitely do it again

Had an overnight, spur of the moment stay, the staff were very friendly, accommodation was spot on.

Would definitely go back again. I was made to feel very welcome.

Sea Hotel

Hotel itself is rather tired and in need of investment and freshening up but the staff were pleasant and helpful.

What made it for me was the location of the hotel with easy access for a walk on the beach front (really nice) and pleasant walking distance to loads of good places to eat - especially indian food. A very pleasant stay due to a spell of fantastic sunny weather - I was on business but the beach and weather meant I caught myself thinking about holidays (& I would consider it as a place to go based upon my stay).

Good value for money

Modest room (105) modern & functional, although bathroom a little tired.

More care needed by housekeeping - carpet need a vaccum, thick dust on top of wardrope & hospitality tray needed wiped, but all addressed when mentioned to reception. Good customer service from reception, bar staff, night porter and at (pleasant) breakfast, particulary Amy (waitress) who was very efficient and cheerful. Overall good value for money and not a bad stay - would have been even better if no cleaning shortcuts by housekeeping. Would stay again.

Bathroom vs Breakfast

The ensuite bathroom was very poor quality.

It was not very clean, then again bedside table was encrusted with stuff and I had to wash it down. The shower was not warm at all and dribbly. Trying to have a bath at all was a challenge due to plug. Only stayed a night so did not ask to change rooms, but certainly would have. Breakfast was pleasant with friendly waiter and can do attitude. Penty of choice and quality.

Fabulous hotel in a lovely seaview setting

Hotel was immaculate.

Georgeous room. Worth every penny. When I travel to South Shields again I will definately be booking again. Plus the bloke on reception Saturday and Sunday night of my stay was an absolute delight and deserves a raise!!!!!
