Stayed for two nights at this friendly, relaxed, and clean hotel. Our room had a sea view which was well worth the few extra pounds. Breakfast choices and quality was excellent and the Tapas meal on the first evening was second to none. Will definitely return. Thank you everyone.

Large room, good customer service and excellent value! Very good location on the sea front and next to an Italian restaurant. Staff were polite and helpful. Rooms clean and spacious. All the above made for a very comfortable stay.

We were only here for one night but we had a big bright clean airy room with a great view from the window. The staff were pleasant and very helpful. The breakfast was amazing and really fresh, loads of choice -continental and cooked - I really like the Danish Pastries. Only downside was the Italian Restaurant closed at 8o'clock (but... More

This hotel was excellent, the room we had was large & airy. We only stayed for 1 night and we were at the back of the hotel. But I noticed the rooms at the front had wonderful sea views. The staff were very good and couldn't be faulted. The breakfast was served in a nice breakfast room, food well cooked,... More

This was a short break to visit relatives and I couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The room was beautiful and spacious and had the most incredible views. We must remember to pack the binoculars next time! Perhaps having some behind reception may be an idea. Breakfast was vey good with lots of choice, served in a very pleasant, airy... More

At first we drove past this hotel as it's situated between an Italian Restaurant and a bar/club but turns out it's all part of the same place! Parked out front no problem, although seems there are only a few spaces so I would imagine there's a possibility for on-street parking. I had called ahead to ask if we could check... More

On our four weeks in England, we planned to stay here one long afternoon and night to recuperate before heading to Scotland. We were exhausted, so we grateful for our large, very comfortable room with a full sea view and a super comfortable sofa, where we collapsed (turn the sofa around to face the big bay window). There's a busy... More

We stayed a couple of nights. Friday night ate next door at the Italian restaurant, which was good. Seaview room was amazing, spacious and fabulous. The second night proved to be noisy as there is a club next door. Breakfast was good with a wide choice but not able to offer different types of milk or gluten, wheat free food.... More

We had a sea view on a thursday night and enjoyed a good night's sleep. Whitley Bay was quiet on the night we stayed and proved a good choice because the Italian restaurant next door proved to be good value. There are only a few parking spaces in front of the hotel which were taken when we arrived but you... More
