“Belting hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2011

This B&B is gorgeous! we were lucky to stumble across it as it was the first weekend that guests were able to stay. First impression-WOW!!! Its not like the usual old scruffy B&B that you usually stay at in a 'party zone', as soon as you walk in you are greeted with modern and contempary features and the dining room is somewhere where you actually want to eat your brekkie in the morning!! the rooms are fab too, clean and tidy beds, flat screen TV (even though we didnt use it-but handy!), mirrors (as every B&B i have stayed at has failed to have even a tiny one!) clean bathroom, and the best thing ever......IPOD docker!!!! Hotel did apparently have available WI-FI but we didnt use it. Breakfast was 7.30-9.30 even though we did get down to the dining room at 9.20 (heavy night!), there was a choice of fruit and cereals and obviously the routine full brekkie which was lovely and definately sorted us out for the rest of the day. This b&b will be the only one i stay at again when i go to whitley bay! ive recommended it to all my friends (even the snobby ones!). Well done on a great hotel Stephen...it was bloody lovely!!

The serviced we received, and the welcome was second to none.
The room was very spacious, clean and modern, with a warm welcome feel to it.
With just a short walk from the beach and in the opposite direction the town center, we went from strolling on the sand to having a coffee in a friendly cafe.

Arrived at this hotel after new refurbishment. Was greeted by owner who was very helpful & pleasant. The hotel was spotless. Bed was very comfortable. Probably the best i have ever stayed in. (& have stayed in a few). Room cleaned and tidied after i had left. Pleasant and friendly. Good breakfast. Excellent value for money. You would be silly not to stay here if you can get in. I'm sure word of mouth will give the owner plenty of full bookings.
