It is perfectly situated across the road from the play park and water park which operates all evening in the summer. Also it... More

A home from home in Whitley Bay. Excellent B & B accommodation & a superb breakfast. We were all well looked after as usual, and look forward to staying there again next year, four our annual outing to the Great North Run.

We stayed at Sandsides when visiting relatives in the area and were not disappointed. Barbara and Alan were so welcoming that we felt at home straight away. The room was well appointed with a big TV and comfortable bed, and the en suite bathroom was fresh and clean. In fact the whole place was spotless! And Alan's breakfast was delicious.... More

They welcomed us friendly, and we stayed with them for 2 nights, which we didn't regret. The room was very clean (modern ensuite facilities), the... More

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.
