Friendly, clean and great value!
Posted Sep 18, 2015
I booked a one-night stay for work purposes and this was my first visit to Gateshead / Whitley Bay area.
Carol the landlady was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. She was apologetic not to be able to offer me a sea view but it really didn't matter as I was arriving in the evening and had an early start the next day. The room was modest and basic but the bed was blissfully comfortable. Shower was clean, water nice and hot. The quietness of the place was really appreciated and I slept soundly all night.
The next morning I was met by a cheerful Carol armed with beautifully poached eggs on toast just as I had asked (I am veggie so didn't want the full English). Fresh orange juice, piping hot tea and more toast with a choice of jams and preserves really set me up for the day. The building decor is a little tired in places but I would highly recommend this for value, cleanliness, friendly helpful service and comfortable beds. I will gladly stay here again.
