We booked this Guest House as we couldn't get a room for love nor money in Newcastle for the match, and are so glad we did! We didn't get to meet Barbara but Alan was so welcoming and helpful. The room was very clean and the breakfast was just right. We're planning on a few trips to see Newcastle United... More

Returned for a second stay at this very homely guest house and was welcomed as a long lost friend by the owners Alan and Barbara. I received the same personal attention and was very satisfied with the cleanliness of the house and the brilliant breakfast. I will be back! Syd H.

Lovely place to stay, beds very comfy, whole place lovely and clean. Staff extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast was great with a good variety. There is a beach within a 5 minute walk away and is very clean and tidy. There are also plenty of shops nearby.

I stayed here on 2 occasions and was not disappointed, the room was big with a big Flat Screen TV. The en-suite was adequate for its use the shower needed some getting used to when setting the temperature. However, once got it to the correct temperature it was not a problem every other day. The bed was very comfortable and... More
