We stayed for three nights. Can't fault it. Exactly what we needed. Good location - both for the sea and the Metro.
Excellent hosts. Jerry couldn't have been more friendly or more helpful. Sorted two good restaurants for us and offered lots of information about the area.
The room (1), was good, en suite, very comfortable bed and the largest TV I've ever watched!
I'd certainly recommend "The Lighthouse".

I've been staying at The Lighthouse for 4 days now and seriously cannot fault it at all. I stayed in room 4 and although a bit small it had everything I needed. The room was clean, the bed super comfy and a nice LCD TV with built in DVD . I have to give a mention to the owners Gerry and Margaret. Probably 2 of the best people I have ever met in my life. Always smiling and take time to talk to you. I would recommend The Lighthouse to anyone staying in Whitley Bay.

Like the ad says come as a guest and leave as a friend.

I stayed in room # 3 in October, 2013, and it was a magnificent room! The only thing that oushined the room was the thoughtfulness and helpfulness of the innkeeper! In addition, the breakfasts were absolutely delicious! I would definitely stay again! Thanks for everything!

Room Tip: Room # 3 was absolutely fantastic!

We were at the Lighthouse Guesthouse for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Jerry and Margaret were the perfect hosts, very welcoming, friendly, helpful and attentive; We enjoyed the morning chats during breakfast and Jerry also gave us a lot of helpful information about places of interest to visit. Our room (no: 3) was very clean and comfortable, well equipped with all modern amenities.

The best assets of Lighthouse Guesthouse are Jerry and Margaret - their genuine warm friendly hospitality is the shining beacon that makes this Lighthouse a very special place. We hope to return next year. Thank you.

My Dad and I had a wonderful stay at the Lighthouse earlier this month. Lovely updated rooms, delicious breakfast with lots to choose from and a nice location up the street from the beach. But as others have stated, the best part of staying at the Lighthouse is the top-notch hospitality from Jerry!

From my Dad (Carl): My daughter and i decided to visit the north east to see where i grew up and the sights i never had a chance to see . Had not been home for 50 Years. Arrived late due to missing connecting flight, jerry was waiting for us.

Thanks jerry, your knowledge of the surrounding area ,and getting us off on a great start with breakfast helped us complete all our tasks.Your hospitality made us feel at home. (Outstanding)

We (4 chaps) travelled up from Newport for the Great North Run. Gerry and Margaret couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. We never needed to search for a bar or restaurant as Gerry had all the information available and a few 'bad' jokes for good measure. The breakfast was all you can eat with everything from cereal, fruit, yoghurt, cold meats to a truly enormous 'full English'. Having read the other reviews there isn't much more I can add except our thanks for a brilliant stay. We wish Gerry & Margaret every success for the future and hope to visit again.
