We have now stayed at the Martineau on 5 or 6 occasions as our daughter lives in s small flat locally. We have always found it to be warm, comfortable and very welcoming. The rooms are well furnished and provided with the small luxuries of life in terms of tea, toiletries and

My wife and I stayed there for a long weekend in Tynemouth. We stayed in the Priory room, named for good reason. The views of the Tyne were spectacular. I would estimate a 140' degree view of the river and environs. Our room was more then comfortable and cosy. No noise and had

Response from Sally C, Owner at Martineau Guest House
Responded 4 Nov 2018
Thank you for your review, your feedback is important to us. However I am very disappointed that you said that there were lots of cobwebs in your room. As you will see many of our reviews comment on the cleanliness of the room. Visit England assessors, who visit incognito every year, also comment on the excellent cleanliness of the rooms. If you had mentioned this to me at the time we could have sorted it for you. I am also disappointed that you found that your breakfast was small and ‘nothing special.’ Having looked back at the many reviews we have had I cannot find another review which says that the breakfasts are small. In actual fact most reviews comment on the excellent breakfasts and the wide choices on offer. Many saying that it is the best breakfast they have ever had. Often guests comment that after one of our breakfasts they don’t need to eat again until the evening! The website clearly states that the breakfast table is a communal one but I do understand that not everyone is comfortable with this, hence the breakfast in bed option. However I do realise that everyone has their own views and hope that you will stay with us again sometime to enable us to give you a better experience.

Fantastic B&B in the heart of the characterful village of Tynemouth. Spotlessly clean room, beautiful breakfasts (with amazing choices, including local fish and produce), and a great position within easy walking distance of several good restaurants, the priory and the seafront.
