I've been going to South Shields at the same time for over 10 years. The last 2 have been spent at Elmwood. The rooms are the cleanest, the staff the friendliest and the dining room just perfect. The breakfast gives you every selection of cereal and combinations of cooked items is endless. Also represents value for money, up to 20%... More

The owner Nisha is lovely and incredibly helpful, offering local knowledge on restaurants, nightlife and transport. She even offered help with lending me things to sort out the house. Nothing was too much trouble for her even though the B and... More

We came up to stay for the rugby in Newcastle. The owner was very very welcoming and helpful. The price of the stay was very good value and the breakfast was great! We had easy access to Newcastle and the nightlife didn't disappoint, everyone was friendly and hospitable as you would expect.

Nisha is the wonderful landlady at her very well presented guest house. She is welcoming, friendly, genuine and very informative from the first time you set foot in the door. Room 4 is a comfortable double room in which my husband and I slept very well. The cleanliness is second to none. Nisha obviously works very hard to keep up... More

Delighted to recommend Elmswood. Comfortable, clean and smart, and very hospitable. I stayed here the September weekend of the Great North Run (as did, it was apparent, every other guest that weekend!). Very comfortable, very friendly, and a great location for the stunning beach (a 10 minute walk), and superb selection of international cuisine in a vast array of restaurants.... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed here before going on holiday, best decision we made. The guest house was lovely and the room was of a very high standard. The owners were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help. The breakfast was delicious, with plenty of options available. Would definitely recommend this guesthouse to anyone and we will be returning... More

I stayed at the Elmswood with my son for the Great North Run weekend. Our host, Nisha was not just a font of extensive knowledge on the area but also went out of her way to make sure all her guests had absolutely everything they could need or want. The twin room in which we stayed was spotless, spacious and... More

I stayed here for a weekend whilst visiting friends nearby. I could not fault the quality of the room, it was decorated to a high standard which was luxurious and spotlessly clean. The owner was very welcoming and friendly and helped me up to my room. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order and delicious!! A cooked menu available and a... More
