My son and I stayed for 1 night before starting Hadrians Wall trek the next day. Andrew and Sonia were lovely and advised us of the best places to eat, the room was nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good and sustained us on the first leg of our walk, only complaint no black pud!

As a Travel Agent for the last 43 years I have stayed in many 5* hotels around the world but I have never enjoyed any better personal service than here. OK it's not a 5* hotel but it is an excellent little establishment so well run by Andrew and Sonia, spotlessly clean and a joy to experience.
What a pity that more of the patrons did not take advantage of the excellent bar, superb wines at a more than reasonable price, however that was our luck because we had the owners all to our own to chat with, their local information and knowledge was so helpful and they even booked our restaurant table for us in the evening!!!


Well done.

Room Tip: Room 4 is excellent.

What a great find.
Stayed with my family for one night as a stopover and wouldn't hesitate to return.
The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful going out of their way to make our stay as good as possible, even to the extent of taking us down to a place to eat in their own car.
The rooms were clean and comfortable with a nice hospitality tray and bottled water.
Breakfast was hearty and cooked to our preferences with plenty of choices.
There's a small bar on the ground floor which we took advantage of and tried the local beer.
The road is quiet and although we didn't park on the property the car was fine just outside on the road.
We will definitely recommend Oaktree Lodge as a place to stay.

The owners of Oaktree Lodge, Andrew and Sonia Birds, are exceptional hosts. We arrived early (10:30 a.m.) and they rushed to prepare a room for us so we could settle in, after being fully booked the previous night. They also provided excellent advice on good local walks, ways to get around the area, must see sights and great local restaurants. We followed their advice and were very glad we did.

Our room was squeaky clean, quiet, comfortable and had a good hot shower. Breakfast was tasty and made from local produce. More than anything it was the positive attitude and local knowledge willingly shared by the owners that would make me return again. Another bonus is that the lodge is a close 5 minute walk from the train station.

Stayed here with my husband and elderly parents. We all found it very clean, good size rooms with excellent facilities. Breakfast was tasty, filling and all tastes catered for. Andrew and Sonia were excellent hosts who went above and beyond to make my parents stay an enjoyable one and believe me it takes a lot to please my father. They could not have been more helpful. I would recommend a stay at this guesthouse to anyone - but if you are loud, drunk and vulgar go find another place to stay!

This is a nice B n B... the owner was very friendly and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble [he pointed out the best place to eat in Whitley Bay] and the breakfast was very good in the morning. The room was clean and the shower hot and powerful. Also handily located relative to the Metro station. Another one for the 'most satisfied' tray...

What can I say..... This is the most friendly, hospitable place to stay. Andrew and Sonia are the best hosts and will do anything for you and the breakfast is brilliant. We are coming back that's a promise and wish it was sooner than November. Ps best poached eggs xx
