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 an excellent DVD library. Janet was a mine of useful information and a great ambassador for South Shields.

Room Tip: Phone Janet and discuss your requirements and she will oblige if possible

We have stayed in room 5 for two nights. The room and ensuite bathroom were spotless and although they call it "small double room" we found it spacious enough for two people. The breakfast was fresh and delicious and is great having the opportunity to talk to Janet and Peter during breakfast.
We will definitely stay here again!

Just enjoyed a 2 night stay at Forest Guest House. The room was very spacious and spotlessly clean, and being at the back of the house - lovely and quiet. We were made very welcome and well looked after, and I have no hesitation in recommending this guest house. In fact, we have already booked the same room again for a further stay in June!

This is the second time we've stayed at this guest house and its so easy to see why. This place is exceptionally clean and seeing Janet clean a room you can see why. Our room was a good size and had all the mod cons, if you get bored you find outside a hugh DVD collection to pass the time. Breakfast is fresh and having locally sourced ingredients makes you appreciate it more. I'm always happier to pass my money over to people that put their heart and soul into a buiness rather than a chain hotel, so look no futher than this guest house

After a 6 hour journey Janet & Peter had the perfect welcome. We stayed in room 1 for 2 nights and as soon as the door was opened we had a smile on our face. Personally decorated and furnished it was refreshing and homely and very spacious and comfortable. as a contractor I travel around the uk regularly and stay in many places and this is the first guest house I've taken time out to recommend and thank the owners for their hospitality. I.ve answered 5 out of 5 for all aspects and would be amazed if anybody wouldn't do the same.

Thanks Janet and Pete

Ian and Louise aberdare (Swansea fans) sorry Janet

We stayed in a large family room for 2 nights. The room was pleasant & clean with a very big bathroom (room1). As vegetarians & vegans, our breakfast needs were taken care of. My children really enjoyed the large DVD selection & enjoyed watching Harry Potter in bed! Its well located & we tried out 2 recommended restaurants-Da Vinci's & The Monsoon, both were lovely & we got a discount as we were guests at The Forest.

Room Tip: Room 1-Very big bathroom!
