Paul and Sally are great hosts with really good ideas for the b&b and they have only been there for about 13 weeks and doing a really GREAT Job. The Breakfasts... More

Lovely clean room. Attention to detail. Added extras. Good hospitality. Looking forward to my next visit, so I can take the "Breakfast Pancake Challenge"!! The new owners have made a really big effort to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable. The breakfast will leave you not wanting to eat for the rest of the day. The choice is above and... More

Family suite: Comfortable beds and quality duvets. Pillows too soft but I'm in the minority on my pillow choices. Plenty of space in room. Mix of modern appliances/furnishings and older dated furniture, however current owners only been in a few months and improvements constantly being made. Wonderful little touches like sweets and pop for the kids raises the bar on... More

The place has been taken over recently and is so much cleaner than it used to be. One of the rooms has been refurbished to high standard and the rest of the property will be refurbished over...

Had a fairly long stay here, the new owners are incredibly nice people and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Paul and Sally are really putting a lot of time and effort into the house, it was previously a little run down but the improvements they've made in the first few weeks are huge. Kingsmere is in a great... More

We stayed at our favourite B n B again when in Shields and found that Pauline and Russell had sold up and were moving on. They will be missed and we have to thank them and wish them luck as we have had more than a few faultless stays over the years. This was no different. Comfortable, clean, friendly and... More
