We spent one night here and loved the location. The breakfast was fabulous with great food and conversation. One of the rooms we rented was a little small and wouldn't have worked for a visit longer than one night. But overall, a great b&b in South Shields.

We stayed at the Britannia over a weekend as a family of three. The room was a family room which contained a double and two single beds and it was great. Huge and spacious and clean. Breakfast was great, quality sausages courtesy of Dicksons, perfect eggs and Ellen was delightful with great service and sense of humour. It's always nice... More

I stayed here during an Earthwatch expedition and would definitely recommend this guesthouse. It is located about 3 minutes from the Arbeia Roman fort, a few minutes from the beach and a couple of minutes away from pubs and restaurants. The town centre is about a 10 minute walk. It is a quiet place, and with the comfortable beds, you... More

We spend a single night here, after taking the boat from the Netherlands to Newcastle. This is a very quiet guesthouse, in a nice area close to the sea. We had a nice, clean, big room. The owners were friendly, and tried to help us on our holidays. The breakfast was a good English breakfast.
