Thanks Janet and Peter for a lovely couple of nights stay. Spotlessly clean, warm rooms. Lovely full English breakfast served on hot plates! If your looking for a true Geordie, warm welcome then this is the place!

Stayed for 2 nights. Met at the door by Janet, who immediately made us feel welcome. We had a double,en-suite room, which, although a little small, was perfectly adequate for our needs. The room was well furnished and spotlessly clean. The delicious breakfast, that was cooked to order, set us up for the day. Ocean Road is famous for its... More

Stayed on Monday evening. Arrived after a very long drive late afternoon - Janet and Peter had taken the trouble to check my arrival time so they could be there to meet me - a very nice touch and greatly appreciated. Immediately felt at home - they run a very slick, professional B&B with a great approach to guest welfare... More

I've stayed for 3 nights whilst visiting for Uni open days. I've been made to feel really welcome, the single room is ideal with TV and free Wi-Fi, and I've slept better here than I have in my own house! The breakfast is delicious and I haven't left still feeling hungry on any of the days I've been here. Both... More

From the efficient booking by phone/email to a warm welcome on arrival, a comfortable double king size bed and all mod cons it was obvious we had found a quality place to stay. A comprehensive breakfast selection set us up for the day and, should the weather not be good (it was fine the whole time for us!) their is... More
