Booked two rooms whilst staying in South Shields for a family wedding and would highly recommend the Elmswood. We had a spacious family/double room for three nights and my Mother stayed in a compact but lovely single room which was also initially booked for 3 nights but she decided to stay a 4th night which was no bother at all....

Stayed over whilst visiting family and was not disappointed. There are so many b&bs in South Shields but this has got to be ranked near the top. Beautiful decor in the bedrooms and a scrumptious breakfast nothing was too much trouble and if it's not on the menu then just ask and they will do their utmost to cater for... More

Nisha and Bryan gave us a lovely welcome and plenty of information about pubs, restaurants, sites etc in the local area. The room was very comfortable and everywhere was spotlessly clean. We had the full English breakfast which was freshly cooked and very tasty. This is a warm, friendly place to stay which is very good value for money. Highly... More

Stayed here on business 17th July. I have stayed in various other B&B's on Ocean road and this is by far the best! If you are looking for nicely decorated, smart, crisp, clean and friendly B&B, this is the one! Nisha and Bryan are lovely and breakfast was great!

The owner Nisha informed us very well and made us very welcome. Would definitely stay here again if we were over this way. The beach looked fantastic too which was only ten... More

I booked this hotel for my elderly aunt who is very hard to please and she had nothing but praise for this b & b, spotlessly clean and very accommodating, fantastic breakfast, great location. Would stay here again without hesitation.
