    The hotel was conveniant and comfortable, breakfast was very good and staff extremely helpful and friendly. However when we arrived to check in they had not received any notification from Booked.net of our booking. The staff were most accomodating in sorting out this problem

    The staff were friendly, polite and efficient. The room was clean and comfortable and the shower was excellent.

    It is looking a little tired in the bar/restaurant areas

    All the staff were excellent; very friendly and efficient Hoel location is very good, right on the beach almost with good secure parking Food was aslo of a good standard with a decent selection

    Nothing really, I was put in the annexe and my room was very very warm even with all the heaters turned off, no problem on this occasion but if the weather had been warmer! Also, security for the annexe is very poor, anyone walking past can get into the main corrider as the lock on the main access door is broken!

    The staff were helpful, friendly and polite.we traveled with our border collie and he was made as welcome as we were, including sausages for his breakfast. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was enjoyable. We ate dinner in the restaurant on two occasions and the menu was varied and the quality of the food was good. Situated close to the beach we enjoyed some nice walks. I have no hesitation in recommending this Sea Hotel.

  • Older travelers

    The room was clean and tidy. We where there to see family and friends and we were all together.

    Convenient location next to the beautiful South Shields beach.

    Usually very friendly staff were a little off hand and lack lustre.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    We enjoyed our stay very much. The hotel is very conveniently and pleasantly located close to the beach, with excellent views across the Tyne towards Tynemouth. The staff are friendly and helpful; the accommodation and other facilities extremely clean and comfortable; and the food - particularly breakfast - of a very high standard. We would recommend the hotel, and will certainly stay there again ourselves.

    Location to venue we wanted to visit

    Rooms tatty and too hot. Breakfast plates boiling hot, food cold.

  • Single
    8.8

    Good sized bedrooms and nice function rooms. The staff were efficient and friendly.

    The mirror in the bathroom was set back which made a morning shave more risky. Also no paper tissues as far as I could see.

  • Older travelers
    6.0

    The friendly staff. The magnificant breakfasts.

    The pillows were so thin we had to ask for another, making 3 each, I would have thrown them out as passed their sell by date if they were mine at home. Very poor. Our tea and coffee was re- filled next day with only sugar!!!!!! So we had to go to reception and ask for more milk, tea and coffee. There were hairs in the bath when we arrived. The sink and bath were not cleaned during our stay.
