This is the best B & B we have ever stayed in - we originally chose it because it discouraged stag and hen parties. Jan and Pat are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Bedrooms are clean and spacious and the B & B is near the Metro Station and opposite Colmans, the best Fish a... More

Jan is so friendly and accommodating. My friends and I stayed here over the May Bank holiday weekend and loved her chatty, sunny demeanor. The cooked breakfast was really good, the rooms very clean with a small shower ensuite, and a good location in the town centre, not too far from the beach,

You are met in a homely surrounding by Sunderland's all female arm-wrestling champion.......only kidding, the landlady compliments the very reasonably priced B&B in that it is very easy to stay here, slap bang in the middle of Ocean Road and all it's neon delights, the nest is clean, warm and comfortable and a short run(put your runners on and head...

A lovely welcome from the owners of the Magpie's Nest. Friendly staff, close to the beach and a great selection of restaurants nearby. I stayed whilst running a project on the beach and the owner was great, really trying to encourage the other residents to come and pay the project a visit. Would recommend, it is a clean and well...

Me and a mate travelled up to watch the football in Newcastle over the weekend. We had tried booking a place in the centre but as it was done last minute we had to look a bit more outside the city centre. It turned out to be a very good move and i would definitely book to stay here again.... More
