“Absolutely Fantastic!”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

We stayed here for two nights at the end of April, 2013 while visiting Shields, and it's the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at. We didn't meet Brian but Nisha went out of her way to make us comfortable from the moment we stepped inside. It's very tastefully decorated and spotless. We were on the top floor and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great! Nisha went above and beyond the call of duty when she offered to take my wife to the hospital in Jarrow, since she had been sick for a few days. Since I had a rental car, Nisha lent us her GPS to find our way to the hospital in Jarrow. We would highly recommend Elmswood Guest House and if we ever go back to Shields, we would definitely go back there. Thanks again Nisha for such great care! Hope to be back again one day.

We stayed here on a Bank Holiday Monday night and we are glad we chose the Elmswood. It thoroughly deserves it's excellent rating. From the moment the door was opened to us to the minute we left everything was a joy. Rooms are exceptionally attractive, clean and well set out. Beds are almost too comfortable! The owners, Brian and Nisha, stop at nothing to ensure a pleasant stay and they are top notch people. Breakfast was delicious and we will be returning as soon as possible. Location is perfect, in the centre of Ocean Road, and the place has no faults! Well done and we look forward to returning soon.

Room Tip: I am sure they are all good!

My wife and I were visiting Newcastle and needed somewhere to stay, the Elmswood guest house in nearby South Shields was highly rated by TripAdviser reviewers so we opted to stay there, what a good move, the room is tastefully decorated and the bed must rate amongst the most comfortably that we have ever slept in. The host was very helpfully and welcoming when we arrived and could not do enough for us. I am writing this whilst waiting to go down for breakfast but judged on other reviewers comments I will not be disappointed. All in all this place represents excellent value at £50, parking can be a bit of a problem, we had to park a couple of streets away but that is a small price to pay for staying in such a comfortably and pleasing place such as.

Room Tip: If you like to sleep with the window open choose a room at the rear as it is located on a busy road...

Stayed there 11th May 2013. Very friendly greeting from Landlady. Room 6 on top floor last one available but fine for us as booked last minute. Nice touches to place and all very clean. Breakfast was good. We will use again as great value for money.
