We arrived on a Friday night to a very polite and happy Steve, who took the time to say hi and introduce himself to our 4year old and 2 year olds as well instead of ignoring them as some people would. We were then shown to our room. We stopped in room 4 which is huge! More than big enough... More

This hotel is ideally located and came with a good reputation and didn't disappoint. Andrew and Steve have clearly taken a lot of trouble with the coordinated decor throughout and the room are clean and fresh. Free Wi-Fi (although the signal is variable) and an excellent breakfast with all the standard fare plus a selection of hot items cooked to... More

What a great find! A straight line walk from the metro/train station, then further on at the bottom of the road is the beautiful beach, can't want for anything more. Surrounded by a good choice of restaurants and an easy 2 min walk to the town centre. The property is spotlessly clean and Steve and his staff word hard to... More

Very good bnb and the owners/staff very accommodating. Beds were very good. Facilities were very good. Breakfast very good. Shower was a little iffy but it did the job ok. We were able to lock our 10 bikes up securely in the house. Thanks very much for the hospitality

I booked this surprise night for the start of our holiday, and we were really pleased with the owners,the room, its location, and the whole experience. I requested some extras for my partners birthday, and they did not disappoint, going the extra mile. Thank you Steve for a great experience. We would definitely recommend your place, and will book again,... More

There were some dodgy looking B & Bs as we cycled into Whitley Bay luckily ours was definitely not one of them. The owners were welcoming the rooms were well presented, clean and stylish and the tea tray was well stocked with yummy biscuits. The bed was comfortable and a good night sleep was had. Plenty of choice of breakfast.... More

Nice clean accommodation. Genuine unpretentious hosts and the best breakfast I've had in a B&B. There is loads of parking outside and the location is near the seafront and town centre. Highly recommended.

My husband I stayed here as we had a wedding in a church nearby the following day. Was very handy but also I think a good location for those wanting to explore the area. Rooms were clean and modern. Rosie was very accommodating and helpful. The breakfast was great and set us up for the day. After I left the... More

Stayed before, good clean and comfortable with very attentive device. Looked after my gluten free needs. Provided gluten free bread and cereals. WiFi not as good as before but was just a provider problem.
