For the price, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything close to as good as this. Clean, cosy and comfortable rooms, nicely decorated, great breakfast and I would have given it the five star rating if certain members of staff had been a bit more friendly and accommodating. Still, I can't really complain, given the ridiculously low price we paid for... More

I stayed here from 15-20th Feb. I stayed in room 2 on the ground floor which was a big room. It was always cleaned everyday. This hotel is always warm. The staff are friendly. Breakfast was good but the night time food was limited. I found it better to eat out at night. There is plenty of places around. The... More

Small hotel in the centre of South Shields. Room lovely, nice and quiet, breakfast good. Really good value. Good private parking at rear of hotel. Great value for money. Hasa. Small bar, but there is a good bar within walking distance. Great value for money.

Stayed a night this week in a single room on the second floor. Room small but very clean and had what you needed. I had to turn the heating down as too hot but good to see it was on, just turned the radiator down, no big deal. Parking a pain as around the back of the hotel ( after... More

We found the hotel to be generally ok. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights and chose this hotel based on the good Trip Advisor reviews. Our room (room 2) was very spacious, a little bit shabby, but generally quite nice. The bathroom was quite large and the powerful shower was very good. The edge if the bath surround... More

We were looking for a different Hotel for an overnight stay on December 26th and found this lovely place. We found the location just in the right place a short drive from the town centre and 5 minutes from our daughter's home. It is set in a village and is a beautiful looking building. We parked at the front of... More

I stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting friends in South Shields and was impressed with the accommodation overall. The rooms were clean and very comfortable and the breakfast was really good too. Parking was free and the location is very convenient for the metro. Would definitely stay again.

Located within a 10 minute walk from Chichester metro and less than 5minutes from South Tyneside Maritime college, which is why I chose it. I found it comfortable and clean with good food and friendly staff. I would recommend this place if you are going to spend a few days at the college.

Something different. A historic house in a village setting. Good off street parking available. As it is an old house the floorboards are a bit creaky but the room we had was quite spacious with a walk in shower. The room has been done up quite recently but some of the fittings were a bit wobbly : tap, towel rail... More
