I actually stayed here May 2015 (not 2016) in the triple room, and really enjoyed it. The owner Jan is a really friendly and lovely person, full of interesting stories! The breakfast is full of choice (English Breakfast, fruit, yoghurt, etc) and really hearty and substantial! Its in a great location, and I would definitely try to come back here... More

We stayed overnight here last month whilst visiting friends in South Shields. The accomodation was very clean and very comfortable. We received a super-friendly welcome and a great breakfast the next morning for £25 per person! Highly recommended. Just across the road is a wide selection of pubs, restaurants, cafes and take-always to suit every taste.

Jan and Steve take excellent care of you and make you feel welcome. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast is outstanding. I have been staying there every time I visit South Shields for about 7 years and The Magpies Nest feels like home away from home. If you need some information or assistance, they bend over backwards... More

This is the best B & B we have ever stayed in - we originally chose it because it discouraged stag and hen parties. Jan and Pat are so friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Bedrooms are clean and spacious and the B & B is near the Metro Station and opposite Colmans, the best Fish a... More
