As a contractor staying in the area I Can not fault in any way.. Proprietor (Jackie) could not be more friendly or helpful. Room spotless, and tidied every day.. Great breakfast and early enough to have before going to work (6am) BEST VALUE IN THE AREA Would be a fool to stay anywhere else..(unless she's full)

I visit Whitley Bay regularly and booked this place on my last visit, which was for me and several members of my family,(3 rooms in total). Jackie and Sinclair who own it are very friendly people and it is now the first place I call when I need to book a room in the area.This says enough.
