I recently stayed at the Martineau and it was exactly what I needed.
I had the Priory View room which has a fantastic view over the mouth of the Tyne and the Priory.
As mentioned before the stairs are worth the effort as I think the room is on the third or fourth floor.
The location is fantastic, right in the centre of Tynemouth with great bars on the doorstep and the beach a couple of minutes walk away.
I was made to feel very welcome and I couldn't have asked for more.
The room was spotless with a fantastic selection of drinks on the tea tray, there was also packaged toiletries in the bathroom in case anything was forgotten.
The breakfast was outstanding. You select your items from the menu the night before and I've never seen such a selection in a guest house, I was spoilt for choice.
I had the english breakfast and I certainly wasn't disappointed.
I stayed on business but I would certainly return for business or pleasure in the future.
The Martineau will be my first choice the next time I'm in the area.
