This was so lovely and Sally was welcoming. What's lovely about this property is the history...Lady Byron, one of the Bronte sisters not to mention Harriet herself. Sleeping in her room looking out at a view that inspired her to write... So very English.... And of course a breakfast with fresh fish x

A warm welcome from Sally and an offer of Christmas cake to start our stay. A room at the top with a view over the river and the priory. The sunrise on our second morning stopped our rush to be ready for the day. Breakfasts were delicious and we wished we were staying longer so we could try everything on the menu. We explored the town, market and river walk. The suggested restaurants were good choices. It was the perfect location for a weekend to recover from the business of Christmas and New Year.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quiet and have stunning views.

Sally’s Taste of the Sea Weekend at the Martineau House is a unique experience and was a great success for our Mum and Daughter trip. We wanted something special and memorable, particularly as it was part of my friend’s big birthday celebration too, and we weren’t disappointed. Tynemouth is an attractive location and the historic Martineau House is well positioned on Front Street where old and new blend together well. The sea and ancient Priory are at the end of the street while several smart eateries, bars and interesting shops are in easy walking distance.
The rooms were warm, clean and well appointed. Even though we had a room looking out on the street, we were not disturbed by the Saturday night Christmas party atmosphere. Sally's kitchen was open and available and the breakfasts, cooked in front of you, are superb - the Best hollandaise sauce on the poached eggs I've had! Sally loves cooking and has created a clever concept for the weekend which not only includes staying in a comfortable, historical place, eating food in great local places but also being shown how to cook and prepare seafood, then eating it! The trip to the fish quay at 7am was a great part of this experience - and I'm not a morning person - with the chance to meet some lovely people in the local fish industry who gave us a tour and lots of information. We had a tutorial in the afternoon on how to prepare the seafood which I found very useful. Then in the evening Sally created a lovely dinner party with the fish we had prepared in her homely kitchen /diner. This was a quality experience and is highly recommended!

A really friendly welcome from Phil & we were very well looked after in Sally's absence! Well equipped room with some nice personal touches. Fantastic breakfast & close to the beach to walk it off! Right in the centre of Tynemouth which has loads of bars, restaurants and little independent shops, and even on a busy Saturday night, our room (at the back) was very quiet. Would recommend.

Beautifully clean, welcoming and homely place. stylish but with character.Sally was attentive without being intrusive. Excellent breakfast, and facilities.Free Wifi appreciated.Smooth book in and check out.If we could advise anything...maybe the addition of a winter duvet, but that is just splitting hairs and very much a personal preference.An additional heater was available to bring into the room. Thankyou.We will visit again

My husband and I stayed with sally at Martineau House for the Weekend. Our Room Priory View was Clean, Comfortable and Spacious. The view from the window was amazing looked out onto the Tyne and the sea using binoculars we could see all the Ships. My husband had the Big Geordie Breakfast and managed it all much to Sally's delight he would thoroughly recommend having it I had my usual Bacon Sandwich and Cereal. This was our 3rd visit and it won't be our last. Sally is very friendly and very knowledgeable on where to eat. Thank you Sally see u again.
