Very nice place to stay. Really helpful, lovely room (and great shower!) and a very tasty breakfast in attractive surroundings. Would definitely recommend. South Shields was a revelation, too - worth re-visiting.

After checking out countryside cottages, city apartments and chain hotels we came across The Clifton on TripAdvisor.

I've got into the habit of staying at the chain hotels - Holiday Inn, Premier Inn etc, but the Clifton made a really nice change. Friendly and very helpful owners, rooms clean and tidy, and easy parking. It's in a great location too. Shops, restaurants, Wetherspoons and bar all near. The Metro station is very handy, and an all day... More

Every aspect of our stay was excellent from the very comfortable well appointed bedroom to the most enjoyable breakfasts. Close proximity to many good places to eat was a significant plus. Our hosts could not have been more friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay again if revisiting the area.

The bed was super comfy and we had a great night sleep. It is a lovely family run place who definitely recommend and stay... More
