Booked into this guest house as I was performing at a memorial gig. Arrived to book in, to meet with a lovely bubbly lady, she gave me the keys and asked what time I would like breakfast on Sunday. Breakfast in the morning consisted of cereal, coffee or tea, orange juice and then a few slices of toast and a... More

I stayed here with my young family (8 and 6 years of age) and the location is superb, great beach, fantastic views and much different to what I thought Whitley Bay would be like. The service and value in the guesthouse were top notch and the rooms and beds were cosy and very comfertable. Will definitely ba back. Many thanks.

£30 for en-suite room, plenty of space in room, big bed, couch so don't have to sit on bed, lots of storage space. Free wifi, tea and coffee making stuff, biscuits as well! Good nights sleep, no street or traffic noise. Have paid £60 for much, much worse. Easy to find, plenty of free street parking very near by. Breakfast... More

I have been working down in Newcastle on business for a few weeks. After spending the first week in a grotty hotel on the other side of Newcastle, I searched around for somewhere else, and was lucky enough to come across the Cara, a hidden gem down on the waterfront in Whitely Bay. It's not the Ritz, but has all... More

I spent my birthday at the cara guesthouse which is in a beautiful spot in Whitley bay - will definitely be going back for another stay! I had a great birthday and a great time! It was a surprise birthday party and I was very impressed with the location and the hospitality. I also woke up to a full English... More

Phoned 3 days before to cancel one of the rooms I'd booked as my mum could no longer make it. Two minutes into my explanation the woman (I believe her name is Carol) on the phone shouted at me, "Look I'm driving you know so goodbye." She was so rude and abrupt! If you're driving, don't answer the phone! I... More

I had even more than I expected. It was like a family visit. The Guest House Host was very friendly and exceptionally helpful. I traveled with my dog and he was the same welcomed as me (which is not usual at all), and with no extra charge. Thank you Cara Guesthouse! I will definitely visit you again, whenever visiting Whitley... More

We stayed over a bank holiday weekend and The Cara was extremely good value. Exactly what we were looking for. Comfortable beds, ability to come and go as we pleased, decent full English breakfast. Yes we had to share a bathroom but what more do you want for £25 per person over the May bank holiday?!? Great value, will be... More
