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!

Arrived in the evening, very quick check in and intro to the rooms which were amazing, just like being at home. No complaints and THERE WERE PLUGS BY THE BEDS!!! which is amazing. Fast strong wifi. Great breakfast and chat with Dave. Situated next door to loads of amazing Indians and the best fish and chips in the north. Cheers... More

The B&B is in located in the the centre of South Shields's eating-out-centre, with a nice collection of Indian, Italian and Fish & Chips restaurants just on your doorstep. The B&B has been recently refurbished and it's spotlessly clean. The owner Dave is a charming character who is extremely friendly, helpful, and lovely to talk to. The single room I... More

I frequently stay at the Clifton throughout the year with work. Staying Monday to Friday for almost half the year, I could not ask to stay in a more pleasant environment. The rooms are spectacularly clean and very well maintained by Dave himself. The fantasticly cooked breakfast is served with lovely coffee and smiles on faces no matter how early... More

Myself and my partner stayed for three nights at the beginning of August in room number 6. First impressions of the building were that it was for definite, the most modern and friendly looking guest house on the Ocean Road strip, with a very welcoming little coffee shop attached on the side. This first impression was expanded upon when a... More

Clifton is the place that mine colleagues and myself got recommended for staying in this area near Newcastle. The most important thing for me about this place is that you can stay for 4 or 5 weeks ( which was the case with me ) and still feel comfortable and more like home than in many hotels I have stayed...

I have been visiting Newcastle frequently on a business trips in 2011-2012, and every time I would stay at Clifton. Location is very good close to the metro and main bus station (7 minutes walking). There is also a number of supermarkets located nearby (ASDA and Morrison´s) as well as some smaller corner shops. Couple of banks and cash-points are... More

The room was lovely and the decor had been well thought-out, absolutely spotless in both the bedroom and bathroom, and a wonderful breakfast; what more can i say?! The owner was also very friendly and accommodating, so we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Holidayed here 2 years ago and have come back again due to the hospitality that Dave and Susan offer. The rooms are of a very high standard,the breakfast is out of this world. Dave is always very informative about things to do around the area and it's somewhere we would always come back to thanks to Dave and Susan's hospitality.... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Clifton for a weekend at the end of May this year (2011) for the Evolution festival in the centre of Newcastle.
