My husband and I stayed for three nights, we always visit South Shields and like to stay in different guest houses.What a lovely place, spotlessly clean. Scott and liz, who took over about about 6 weeks ago,are lovely and are always available to help. The breakfast was lovely and the cafe attached is outstanding. We will definitely stay here again...

We stayed here for a night in November. The room was absolutely spotlessly clean and so was the en suite. Very comfortable as well. We had a lovely cooked breakfast in the morning. The owners couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. All at a very reasonable price! We are going back to South Shields next month and will definitely... More

The hosts were very warm and friendly, cant do enough to help. My partner and I had a delicious cake and a lovely cuppa to warm up from the cold. I notice... More

Please note this review is for the coffee shop that is part of the guest house, I have not stayed there. Coffee shop is lovely, small but spotlessly clean. Menu is small but everything you really need. Food and drinks nice quality. Staff very friendly and accommodating A discovered gem in South Shields!
