Kathy (and her better half!) were wonderful hosts and made our stay in South Shields very enjoyable. The accommodation and breakfasts were great and we will not hesitate to recommend this guest house to others. Barrie & Audrey Perth Australia

Nischa and Byran were the most wonderful hosts you can ever meet. I stayed at this B & B in August this year for a few days and it was just perfect. The breakfast each mornings were just divine. :) Lots of different types of restaurants along the street and close-by. You'll never go hungry. The room was great and... More

We stayed here in August having found Elmswood on the internet. Read the other reviews before we booked and decided that many positives cant be wrong. Booked with family and we booked two double rooms. Both spotlessly clean and well appointed. The en suite facilities were lovely and towels supplied daily. Extremely comfortable and décor well thought out. Breakfast freshly... More

Nisha was a very personable host who was constantly smiling and helping us with all we needed to know plus local info. She man handled all our heavy panniers single handed;I was very surprised as she was so small in stature ! The facilities were fab. The B&B was very central and close to the town centre and foot /...

Lovely place to stay, clean, comfortable and great breakfast. The people who run the place were friendly and welcoming. Handy location for access to the town and to the beach area. I highly recommend anyone to stay here when visiting South Shields and surrounding area!

I've been in this guest house for one night only. At my arrival the lovely lady welcomed me with a smile and a kind chat. The room was incredibly clean and comfortable. The private toilet and bathroom were excellent. The access to the room was perfect and no time restriction. The breakfast service was once again superb. Good food, a... More

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
