Parking at the back of the hotel which is as hard to find as other reviewers say. Small hotel not far from town. Price is reasonable. Room was ok but small and the bathroom small and smelly. Shower small. Staff could be better and their service more efficient. Wifi unreliable for me. Food ok at breakfast but not too good... More

This place looks good from the outside and was a good price. However the wifi didnt make it to my room and my bathroom was small and my shower very small! Breakfast was fine but the evening menu was quite small. staff could be a little more interested too.

My single room ( named a crash pad I thiink)was tiny and right at the top and far end of the building. No wifi was available in my room but elsewhere in the hotel it was. Water was hot and plentiful. Shower was fine if cramped. Staff were cheerful and competent on the whole. Hotel was clean. Food very plain.... More

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
