This hotel was conveniently located in Whitley Bay town and overlooks the magnificent views of the bay. It is also close enough to walk from the metro to the hotel (about 15 minutes).

The only positive feedback is that the hotel has an excellent location. Other than that it has to be the worst place weve ever stayed. The room was really poor. Shabby/dirty decor.

When we first checked in the staff were friendly but within two minutes we were asked “Would you mind if you pay now?” We were taken back a bit by this request , especially as we hadn’t seen the room yet, we decided to...

Comfortable room with extensive sea-view from bay window. Super-hot power shower and large, fluffy towels.. Good, generous breakfast. Hope to book same room on a return visit. Easy access by public transport.
