Stayed here recently arrived on a very wet and blustery July afternoon. The hotel only has six parking spaces outside its front, if you are unlucky not to get one of these you have to park on side streets. I paid £4.50 for 9 hours of parking. Resident parking zones are also enforce limiting parking further. On going in to... More

We arrived late at night has we had been at the Open Golf at St Andrews and wanted somewhere to stop on the way back which would break up the long journey. Had trouble initialy finding the Hotel and unfortunately there was no parking space for us so we had to park around the corner in a side street. Not... More

My husband had booked this hotel after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor but we were very disappointed. We first of all had to negotiate a lot of steep stairs and fire doors to get to our room although the very kind lady on reception helped us up with our bags. The room was very small and the shower was... More

Booked this with friends when visiting Tynemouth festival and we wasn't disappointed. Greeted by nice friendly receptionist and shown to our rooms which were pleasantly decorated and a decent size. Breakfast was very good with cereal, ham, cheese, muffins and a full English. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend it.

I spent a long time looking for a hotel in whitley bay area as we where looking to visit friends and where hoping for a reasonable hotel in walking distances. Having taking a look at the limited website the rooms and reviews looked reasonable enough, I then tried to book online and every time it said nothing available. I then... More

I got the single room at the back of the hotel, but for a good price I thought. The kitchen was initially a little noisy from what I took to be some sort of generator, though this quietened down later in the evening as the kitchen activity stopped. Room was clean (as was the hotel in general), staff were friendly.... More

Visited with friends to go to a gig at tynemouth priory. Overall it is a decent hotel & is good for 1 night & does the job! The parking as mentioned in other reviews is a bit tricky (none on front when we arrived but there is only about 6 spaces) so we went in a side street, this was... More

Although all the food was lovely, I felt slightly mislead by the photos on website of the hotel. I bought a voucher and booked expecting a pleasant afternoon tea with a view of the sea. When we arrived we walked into the hotel and were guided through into the very dark bar next door which I'm sure was noir not... More

Great location, friendly staff, and massive room with great view (if you get a sea view room; the single room we got was at the back and small with no view). Breakfast has a great choice, but a small gripe - no real coffee! It was great to wake up in the night and hear the waves crashing just across... More

Stayed in a single room as a solo traveller, was on the side of the building. Some noise from the kitchen extractor, but the windows were good at keeping out most of the noise. Bed was a little small, but comfortable enough, bathroom also fine. Breakfast room is really nicely decorated: cooked items on a buffet were a little dried... More
