Travelling as a female alone for the 1st time i was very apprehensive. There was no need to be! What wonderful staff here.

I Was made to feel very Safe & welcome. on arrival i was instantly met by a lovely lady Sandra who took me to my room where id be residing for the next 3nights and she couldnt have made me feel more welcome.

The staff especially 'Steve & Sandra' went that extra mile and made my stay one to remember. The bar staff & cleaners were also pleasant what an enjoyable stay. Rooms were beautiful, comfy and very cosy with lovely views out over the sea, bedding changed and rooms cleaned daily.

The Marden Inn Exceeded my expectations and i shall be returning to stay here on my next visit to South Shields and strongly advise any visitors to the area to pay a visit here. you will not be dissapointed.

A friend of my wife's stayed here recently and whilst the actual hotel, room, food etc was very good, 1 area that needs work is the actual booking process. The guest filled in the online application and then after several days with no reply had to eventually phone to make the booking. Another frined is due to stay soon and had the same problem. The online booking form is a brill idea but only if the staff follow them up.

It may be allright to stay as a guest but I wouldnt recommend the food also we were accused of not paying for our drinks when we had. I certainly will not be returning. The food eas cold and was probably microwaved from frozen. one lady who was with us had a lasane that was frozen in th middle. The yorkshires were grey and the dumplings were so hard you couldnt cut them. When we complained and very politly we were told that we were banned as no one had ever complained about their food before. we were sympathetic to this and said that they must have had an off day. they refused to accept that the food was not up to standard. two of our party got really upset and refused to pay as they were not able to eat the food. the rest of us paid our bills and left . as we were walking accross the car park the manager/owner came out and shouted accross the car park , in front of other customers that we had not paid £18 pounds worth of drinks. we consequently went back to confront the bar maid who said these ladies and gentlemen have paid for their drinks. We managed to get a mumbled apologie but not sincere at all.

we have stayed at the hotel in the past, but returned for a weekend break. the hotel is situated within easy reach of the town centre. it is excellent value for money. the rooms are spotlessly clean and the food is excellent, especially the breakfast. we would have no hesitation in returning to the hotel as often as we possibly could

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2008

We have just stayed at The Marsden Inn for Bank Holiday Weekend in South Shields as this is my wife's home town.
Now living in Essex, we do frequently visit South Shields to see her family and friends. Part of the enjoyment of the visit always comes from staying at The Marsden Inn. It is a is a large public house with twelve comfortably furnished rooms, most are not en suite however, that does not distract from the pleasure of our visit. The proprietors Steve & Maureen Stronach along with Sandra and the rest of the satff always go that "extra mile" to ensure you have a pleasant stay. The pub serves great home cooked food at extremely reasonable prices and has a good selection of beers wines and spirits again at very reasonable prices. The Marsden Inn is very well located with most bedrooms enjoying a sea view. I would not hesitate to recommend The Marsden Inn as a place to stay if visiting South Tyneside.

  • Liked — Warm and friendly atmosphere
  • Disliked — Ocassionally noisy for early sleepers
