4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

A really friendly welcome from Phil & we were very well looked after in Sally's absence! Well equipped room with some nice personal touches. Fantastic breakfast & close to the beach to walk it off! Right in the centre of Tynemouth which has loads of bars, restaurants and little independent shops, and even on a busy Saturday night, our room (at the back) was very quiet. Would recommend.

Beautifully clean, welcoming and homely place. stylish but with character.Sally was attentive without being intrusive. Excellent breakfast, and facilities.Free Wifi appreciated.Smooth book in and check out.If we could advise anything...maybe the addition of a winter duvet, but that is just splitting hairs and very much a personal preference.An additional heater was available to bring into the room. Thankyou.We will visit again

My husband and I stayed with sally at Martineau House for the Weekend. Our Room Priory View was Clean, Comfortable and Spacious. The view from the window was amazing looked out onto the Tyne and the sea using binoculars we could see all the Ships. My husband had the Big Geordie Breakfast and managed it all much to Sally's delight he would thoroughly recommend having it I had my usual Bacon Sandwich and Cereal. This was our 3rd visit and it won't be our last. Sally is very friendly and very knowledgeable on where to eat. Thank you Sally see u again.

Enjoyed staying here. Lovely room with view over beach-even binoculars in the room. Bus stop nearby and easy walk to metro. Tynemouth was a delightful surprise with cafes, beaches, priory and easily accessible to Newcastle. Would stay here again rather than the city.

We stayed for two nights while my partner was working unsociable hours (midnight to 4.30am) in Newcastle. Sally was great at accommodating our strange hours and was very helpful. For 50p a day you can get a scratch-off parking permit to park in the street outside the Martineau - very handy.

We had the Priory Room with wonderful views out over the sea and the statue of Collingwood - I was happy to just sit in the window and watch the world go by. The room was very comfortable, with a small ensuite shower room and a good hospitality tray. Fresh milk is always available for the tea and coffee.

The breakfasts are fantastic with a great choice in addition to the usual continental and full cooked options. Guests all eat together at one table, which is very sociable and pleasant.

Tynemouth is a small village with some good restaurants and lots of cafes (we ate at Davanti and Barca, both good). There are some great walks along the beaches and out on the piers. All in all a lovely place to visit and I would recommend the Martineau as a base.

Room Tip: Priory Room has a lovely view.

Our second stay with Sally for two nights on our annual visit to relatives in North Shields.
As the Priory room was not available we stayed in the Village View room. However, there was no noise and we slept well on the excellent beds.
A useful addition, bearing in mind that Martineau is not licensed, was a wine cooler in the room , so that we could enjoy a chilled glass of wine before going out for dinner.
The Barca Art Cafe, just a few doors away, now takes bookings;my wife and I had a great meal on the Friday night and all of our relatives enjoyed our meal on the Saturday night.
We again enjoyed Sally's great breakfasts before our return trip to South Wales
