“A lovely family run B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

A lovely little family run B&B in the heart of Tynemouth. Our room was recently refurbished with great facilities; fantastic! Close to local amenities and the beech, with lots to do. I would imagine rooms could be noisy at the front of the house due to it being on the main street but ours was perfect with a bay window overlooking the river Tyne. The room above us even had its own balcony! Fabulous hearty breakfast where the items were cooked to order and therefore piping hot and fresh! Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. Very friendly establishment. The 'Manager' is a true gem! Child friendly. Would recommend it to anyone!

My partner recently booked us into the luxury Laurel room for a "special two nights away"

First impressions lovely room shame about the dead flowers in the vase. Breakfast first morning "toast we ordered failed to arrive" when we managed to attract the solitary staff members attention, we were told they were preoccupied cleaning the windows and forgot our toast. Eventually they returned, stating they had not forgotten the toast after all, as it was inadvertently left in the toaster. This was meant to put us at ease, instead we got stiff toast and nearly frozen butter.

First day there was only one pack of biscuits and a single portion of soap, shampoo and body lotion.

Went to make some early some cups of coffee on the second day to realise all the packets left in the room were sugar. The night before the TV started to have large blocks appearing and the sound was intermittent. Began to see a pattern that did not resemble a luxury room.

On the 2nd morning we explained that our room had no coffee left from the previous day, staff nodded. Took our order last although we sat there before another table, their breakfast arrived very quickly, we were not so lucky, after a considerable wait our cooked breakfast arrived mixed up, as we were still explaining the plates were whisked away. After quite a while the plates were returned, by which time the breakfast was not very hot. Staff were very dismissive and said it was just the eggs were on the wrong plates; how swopping over the eggs took such a time was a mystery.

Despite telling staff no coffee in room, none was offered

When informed that TV was not working properly was told we should have reported it, when we said it failed the night before we was told it was a new TV, either way it was still faulty.

Our idea of a luxury room is plenty of coffee, more than one pack of biscuits for two people, the room being serviced to a high standard. Staff not washing windows when they are supposed to be cooking breakfast.

We did try to let the owner know of our issues but this only resulted in us being made to feel that we were being less than truthful and in fact was argued with by someone claiming to "only be the Manager"

We did not expect to be made to feel that we were not telling the truth, manager said the room was serviced the day before and we should have reported the TV and no coffee; when we explained that we had told a staff member about the coffee it was just dismissed.

Unfortunately the provisions were very miserly and it was not very hygienic to clean windows and spray lemon cleaner on adjacent tables when guests are trying to finish their breakfast. This was a shame as the room was pleasant, however, the very poor customer service coupled with constant denials let this establishment down.

Room Tip: The room was fine except for the dead flowers, it was the very miserly provisions left in the room t...

My family and I were attending a birthday celebration in Tynemouth and booked into Number 61 for the night of the party. We received a very warm welcome and were impressed by the standard of the rooms which were modern but sympathetic to the history of the building. Our room was at the rear overlooking the garden and the children's was at the front looking onto the village. We all enjoyed a peaceful nights sleep and a lovely breakfast served in the tearoom which was exceptional.Thank you to all the staff who made our stay fantastic. Only wish that we'd booked for the full weekend - will definitely visit again.

Room Tip: I would suggest that any room you chose would be great

Smashing cooked breakfast. Hotel recently refurbished. Even though I stayed a Saturday night with village view room I had no problem sleeping and was not disturbed by any noise from the High Street. The double rooms overlooking the garden looked lovely, passed them as I was walking downstairs. Short walk to the sea front. Great village location. The lounge was a nice touch. Wished I could of stayed there longer and will return.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room choose the Garden views

Thanks to Diane for a fabulous weekend, came here for a one night stay on a girly xmas weekend, the recently refurbished rooms are delightful and sat in the lounge with its open fire and a glass or two of wine was so christmassy. The location is ideal close to bars, shops and the beach perfect the only thing we were sad about was coming home wish we had booked another night.

My wife and her 8 work colleagues have recently stayed at No 61, and she found it excellent in every way. All of the rooms had very recently been refurbished to a high standard. Breakfast was great, and staff really friendly and helpful. Very close to excellent sea front walks. She would happily recommend it. December 2011.

Room Tip: back rooms have lovely views over the Tyne.

We have just returned from another ( our 3rd ) wonderful stay at Number 61 in Tynemouth.
It was a lovely surprise to find that, the rooms had been completely redecorated since our last visit. We were knocked out by the lovely clean, fresh look of our room ( Dickens ) with Romo fabrics and a contemporary finish. We stayed in this room on our previous visit and thought the new style of room was wonderful. The views from this room ( and I believe most rooms at the back of the building ) are lovely - with a view of the mouth of the river Tyne, and the Sea. In fact we sat in bed at night with the blind open watching the lights across the Tyne and boats sailing in and out . . magic ! The host 'Diane' is very lovely as are all the staff ; very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is great too, with a good choice on the menu and great coffee ! ( which can be hard to find ). On our recent stay whilst we ate our breakfast, there was a lovely roaring fire in the original fireplace of the breakfast room . . which was a lovely surprise first thing in the morning. We'll keep coming back because this place has a lovely atmosphere - especially with the new decor, which is fab ! - it's great value for money and we love the location in this interesting town on the wonderful Northumbrian coast. We've already ear marked the brand new room there - for our next visit . . !!

Room Tip: For a Great view of the Tyne . . the rooms at the back are Fab !
