Reviewed 7 January 2017

Superb. A really welcoming guest house. From the home baked biscuits and fresh coffee available in the room to the comfortable and cosy rooms and the excellent cuisine it is a gem. Sally who runs the Martineau is a real star.

Right in the middle of the village only 100m from the sea view. Really interesting additional offerings for breakfast that are HUGE and beautifully cooked. Nice warm welcome. If the communal breakfast arrangement isn't your thing you can have continental breakfast in your room.

Booked up via Expedia at very short notice. Chose Collingwood room. Excellent facilities throughout. Breakfast, particularly for Veggies, first rate. Could not recommend highly enough. Owner was very welcoming and helpful. Already recommended to friends and family.

I'm only going to reiterate what everyone else has said. Sally's attention to detail was exceptional. She had forgotten nothing. The breakfast was the best Ive had anywhere..including posh cruise ships! As vegetarians, we re not used to such extensive choice ,and it really was delicious.. We had the Collingwood View room. Comfortable , warm and very quiet, the view...

We had a very pleasant weekend stay. Our visit was made even better as Sally had cooked my wife done dairy free shortbread. It is lovely when somebody puts in the extra effort. The room was very comfortable there was done light and traffic noise from the street but this was sorted when we realised there was a working shutter...

The best place I've stayed, bar none. I regularly stay in hotels in London and across the UK - this is the best. Everything about it was great. Amazing hospitality.

Thank you again for your lovely review of you stay at Martineau. I am sorry you were disturbed by the couple in the room below and hope it didn't spoil your stay too much.

We thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay at this lovely B&B, great location overlooking the Harbour and river at Tynemouth. A very warm welcome from the owner, hostess & breakfast chef. We had the room at the top of the house overlooking the river. The room is compact but is fully equipped & well furnished (& spotlessly clean) with everything you'd...
