Stayed in South Shields for a festival & Nisha, the owner made us feel very welcome. The guesthouse is immaculate with lovely rooms, tastefully decorated & lovely feel about them. I would highly recommend this guesthouse & defy anyone to find fault.

We booked up to stay here as we were attending a wedding nearby. We booked three rooms...the double No'3, the family No'6 and the twin No'5. All three rooms were beautiful and perfectly clean. Very comfortable beds and all the amenities you would need. We were made to feel extremely welcome by the owner Nisha. Incredibly helpful with everything from... More

Just needed a base for 3 days, tried this because of the good reviews & can honestly say it is a little gem. Great hospitality, great food & spotlessly clean; (Nisha works very hard to make your stay 100%, she definitely made ours). Located just on the edge of town, but easy walking for most places. Lots of restaurants in... More

We managed to get a room at this hotel for the Great North Run, and I can understand why it sells out so very quickly. Apart from the hotel being ideally located, it also is one of the nicest places we have ever had the pleasure to stay at. The hosts were lovely and they bent over backwards to ensure... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this delightful guest house for a night out with friends in South Shields. I was blown away by the beautifully accessorized decor and the cleanliness of the room 3, set in muted shades of grey. Our room was facing the main street and I was surprised at how little noise came from it, we... More

Went there this summer to have a place to stay while i did up a house we had bought.

Nothing was too much trouble for her even though the B and... More

We came up to stay for the rugby in Newcastle. The owner was very very welcoming and helpful. The price of the stay was very good value and the breakfast was great! We had easy access to Newcastle and the nightlife didn't disappoint, everyone was friendly and hospitable as you would expect.
