Onto dinner in the dining area, which is small but very comfortable(7tables) we... More

After reading some of the reviews on here, I was sceptical about booking a room with this hotel for a two weeks course in South Shields Marine School and I'm glad I didn't listen to myself or the reviews! Less than a stone's throw from South Tyneside College/ South Shields Marine School the hotel is an old Victorian house packed... More

Stayed for 6 nights in February, but have to say disappointed. The web site leads one to think that there is 'hotel' amenities, but no lounge and minute dining/breakfast room. This really is a guest house, but hotel prices!! There were quite a few things that were not up to scratch, but in fairness the manager has responded to me... More

Arrived later into the day at about 7pm and booked a twin room for me and my brother to stay on for the night whilst visiting family. We were put in a room at the end of a corridor that had an old piano outside blocking fire exit. Breakfast poor too!

Great place for a stay. Small restaurant with good food. Friendly staff. Business clients during the week. The rooms that we had had all been redecorated. The inclusive breakfast was very good; full cooked English. We were on a business trip for which this was absolutely brilliant.

Stayed for a couple of nights in December 2013. The room and bathroom were both clean and comfortable as well as both being a decent size, verging on spacious. Breakfast cooked to order was nice, traditional fry up, but with no real alternatives, other than cold buffet of cereal and bread products. Size of breakfast area and the number of... More

I agree with previous reviewers that this place could be so much better with just a few little thing doing to it. I lick of paint and a bit of modernising would be a good start but that said the hotel is clean and the staff are great. Thje braekfast was very good and the welcome was really friendly and... More

Had a really good stay there last night. The hotel was clean, the staff were friendly, spacious rooms and great bath! Can't go wrong for forty quid a night. Don't be expecting huge amounts of luxury but the hotel represents very good value and it made for a pleasant stay

First and foremost the staff were all very helpful, the room was clean, and the breakfast was good. It seemed the part of the hotel we were in was a bit run down. Overall more could by made of the building being Sir William Fox's home with better decoration, a lick of paint here and there and more period pieces.
