“Great for stopover”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

This is a value for money b & b which offers good clean accomodation with a freshly cooked breakfast. Very friendly staff of 2 and room, although small has everything needed for a comfortable stay. Will definitely stay again if in the area.

Stayed here with my husband while visiting family in the area. This guest house was recommended to us while we were in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire so good news travels! Don't normally stay in B & B's, we usually try for a Premier Inn etc although they are so impersonal. Anyway, lovely room with a very comfy bed and quite spacious. Bathroom was spotless and newly decorated with a good shower, although a little small. Breakfast in the morning was great - plenty of choice. We thought this was very good value for money and will certainly go again. Our host was so warm and friendly and we discovered our fellow guests felt the same as we all chatted over breakfast. I can only say please give it a try.

We wanted a few quiet days away from it all so i suggested South Shields !! probably not every ones choice !!!! so off we went and stopped of at kirkby stephen, for lunch and probably had the worst Fish and Chips we have ever tasted in the fish restaurant on the high street ( no names) !!!!!!!! anyway on we went and arrived in South Shields early afternoon we parked the car and went for a beer in the Pier pub opposite the Elmswood Guest House. on ringing the door bell, when the proprietor Nisha answered the door it gave you a clue on what sort of Guest house we had arrived at, the welcome and help and assistance were top level and the double room just made the choice of destination correct !! the breakfast every day was made fresh by a chap who cared about his job and it came with a whistle and a smile !!!! to sum our experience of South Shields it gave us everything we wanted sun,sand' BINGO , Ten pin bowling, a Roman Fort, Museum, beer ! a ferry trip to North Shields and a bus ride to Marsden Grotto which is a bar/ restaurant built in to rocks on the coast. !!! Who said there is nothing to do in South Shields !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank You Nisha and Staff at the Elmswood Guest House 10/10 ,

After bobbing from one place to another in and around Newcastle due to last minute travel, to support my daughter after childbirth, I ended up in South Shields on day 6. I cursed myself driving over as a little further from Newcastle than I'd have liked.
I'm so very pleased I didn't check the distance, which to be fair is only about 30 minutes from Newcastle centre.
Bryan had already called to advise me on entry, as I explained I would be there late, he also advised me on breakfast times.
I had booked a single room and was surprised to see how much was in it, whist smallish, it still managed to seem light and airy, with shower toilet and basin, lovely decorated and well laid out. Due to my very late arrival the bed was my only real concern, after spending 6 days in various, guest houses/hotels/bnb's by now I was used to uncomfortable beds! This however was luxury. Very comfy mattress and good quality linens made for a peaceful nights sleep.
The breakfast room was lovely and both Nisha and Bryan very nice hosts, Nisha was attentive to every breakfasters needs, whilst Bryan knocked up a fantastic good quality full English.
I'm so pleased I booked for two nights and may have to extend regardless of the commute to Newcastle.

Room Tip: I'm not sure of tips about rooms, but can say that all guests seem very content with their own...

Just returned from a two night stay at this lovely guest house! Would recommend to anyone. Very clean and fresh room. A well cooked breakfast. A lovely and very friendly landlady who nothing seemed to much trouble. Very helpful! Would certainly stay again.

Just spent a long weekend at this Guest House and will recommend it to everybody. The Guest House offers bed and breakfast. The breakfast is everything you could ask for from scrambled eggs to a full English. It is well cooked and presented and will set you up for the day. The rooms are large and have all the facilities you will need (Tea, Coffee etc. and free Wi-Fi which is a good speed). The Guest House is located in the centre of South Shields only a few minutes walk from the Metro station and the beach. There are also numerous restaurants and takeaways near the hotel if you do not feel like a lot of walking. The staff are very friendly and are always available if you need anything. Excellent

Room Tip: Speak to the owner direct by telephone and they request all your needs. They will do everything they...
