reasonable prices and good accommodation, but it is very hard to find, You will need to familiarise your self with the street maps as the road it is on is only accessible from the middle. each end is blocked off.

We booked under a special offer. The bed was comfortable but the room smelled musty. The breakfast was adequate but the dining room was overcrowded and it was difficult to get in and out. Overall, it could be better and I would not book there again.

Clean, friendly and helpful, this is a small, good value hotel in a heritage building. A little hard to find but in the centre of Westoe village very close to South Tyneside college. Staff couldn't be more helpful.
