We have visited this guest house for the last few years as a group of blokes watching football in the region. This provides basic functional accommodation (mostly sharing)and a decent breakfast. It this is what you need this ticks all the boxes at a fair price.

Stayed for 1 night and was very impressed; especially for the price, good WiFi, comfy bed, clean room. Duncan the owner couldn't have been more helpful and even ironed my shirt; as was on my way to an exam. Would recommend.

This is an ok place. It's a bit tatty, but cheap and cheerful. The owner was very friendly, and had a good chat over breakfast. It's a perfectly nice place to stay if you're in South Shields. Can't believe anyone would describe it as "superb" though.

Very nice place to stay. A lot of space in the room, very friendly owner. Good position in the town. You have a fridge in the room, as a TV. Very good WiFi. Unfortunately, hob is not on due insurance policies. The only inconvenience - it doesn't have separate car park, but you can par for free in the streets...

Super, clean warm friendly, very reasonably priced. Food very good and the proprietor is very hospitable. I've stayed here a couple of times now, it isn't sea front so don't expect coastal views as its right in the centre of Shields on a bus route but everything else makes up and at the price Duncan charges for an excellent reception...
