“Great stay in Whitley Bay”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

My Dad and I had a wonderful stay at the Lighthouse earlier this month. Lovely updated rooms, delicious breakfast with lots to choose from and a nice location up the street from the beach. But as others have stated, the best part of staying at the Lighthouse is the top-notch hospitality from Jerry!

From my Dad (Carl): My daughter and i decided to visit the north east to see where i grew up and the sights i never had a chance to see . Had not been home for 50 Years. Arrived late due to missing connecting flight, jerry was waiting for us.

Thanks jerry, your knowledge of the surrounding area ,and getting us off on a great start with breakfast helped us complete all our tasks.Your hospitality made us feel at home. (Outstanding)

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

We (4 chaps) travelled up from Newport for the Great North Run. Gerry and Margaret couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. We never needed to search for a bar or restaurant as Gerry had all the information available and a few 'bad' jokes for good measure. The breakfast was all you can eat with everything from cereal, fruit, yoghurt, cold meats to a truly enormous 'full English'. Having read the other reviews there isn't much more I can add except our thanks for a brilliant stay. We wish Gerry & Margaret every success for the future and hope to visit again.

Stayed one night at the Lighthouse as a stopover between trips. Great location in a quiet road but only a one minute walk to some drinking establishments and of course the beach.
Host was very welcoming and and i had a good nights sleep in ready for the long drive back to Heathrow. Breakfast was brill and started the day well.
Will recommend to my other colleagues and will def be back

I was made to feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and the accommodation was excellent. If you want a friendly stay - go here. I was visiting friends in Whitley Bay and was a single person staying which could have been awkward however, the couple were very welcoming.

My wife and I stayed here for the weekend of the Great North Run. As soon as we arrived Jerry made us feel at home and we fealt we had known him years within minutes of being there, he and Margaret really are the perfect hosts,and nothing is too much trouble(not that we asked for anything!)
We stayed in room 5 which was really nicely fitted out, with lots of little extras in case you had forgotten anything from home. The room was really clean and we had fresh towels on both days.
The quality of the breakfast was really good with lots to choose from if you didnt want one of Margarets Breakfasts :-)
With it being the weekend of GNR, and how fussy runners can be at breakfast time, Margaret had been out to buy all sorts of goodies for breakfast.
My only complaint?-having to leave on Sunday.
See you next year Jerry,room 5 again please! :-)

I have to say i have never felt more welcome in any guesthouse,i met gerry at the front door and after a few minutes chat i felt i had known him years.the room was everything i could want with smart tv and i pod docking and en suite facilites.It was spotless clean and very comfortable.the lighthouse is less than five minutes from the sea front and local shops
.The food was first class and i would recommend this b an b to anyone.
As it says on the lighthouse business card,come as a guest leave as a friend.
