“A trip to the seaside”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

We needed an over night stay in South shields( my husband's home town)- we were visiting family
and it was the best location to stay.The staff were very nice as most South shields people are and the room was clean and bright. The only thing that i could criticise was that the room was very warm and the radiator in the bedroom would not turn off even though there was a thermostat on the radiator. The bathroom was large and very well lit.The breakfast was excellent.
We paid £54 approx for a twin room with breakfast it very good value and we would stay again just wish they had air con.

My room was very nice, spacious, & comfortable with all facilities. All the staff in the hotel were very welcoming, friendly, & efficient. The hotel has an excellent restaurant with a varied menu. It is on the sea front, yet only about a 15 minute walk, or a short bus ride, to the town centre & metro station, so very cnveniently situated.

Room Tip: As far as I am aware, the rooms are all good, & quiet.

Short day trip to South Shields with my 82 year old mother. We had fond memories of when I was young. Mam is not so mobile these days, and needed a toilet. Rather than using a public toilet which wasn't easy to park at, I pulled into a nearby disabled parking spot adjacent to the Sea Hotel, and asked if under the circumstances, we could use their facilities. The reception staff were first class, and bearing in mind we weren't staying at the hotel, couldn't have been more helpful. They allowed access to the hotel car park which was next to their disabled toilet facility. The hotel seemed very busy so is obviously a popular venue. We were very impressed with the help offered, and this certainly makes us more inclined to give them some business on our next visit with the family to South Shields. Much appreciated. Thankyou.

This hotel was very nice, lovely bedroom and although it overlooked the fairground and the roundabout it was very quiet. Breakfast was served in a very nice area and was excellent. Another plus was plenty of parking. Other eating places and parks within easy walking distance.

My Wife and I have been to this Hotel on several occassions on Holiday. The Car Park is good because you don't have to pay any Extra's. Breakfast was very Good and the Staff-Including ''Chris'' who always had a Smile on his Face was a good Start to the Day. We had a Problem with the Television getting the right Channel but, we had a Word and it was soon sorted.Plenty of Sands and Parks at South Shields and they are Remodernizing the Town up bit-by-bit. The Fair Ground was very Quiet whether its the time of the Year I Don't Know.

Stayed for a night and had no complaints. Very comfy bed, free Internet and secure car park. Reception helpful and only issue I had was with a window that wasn't sealed properly and as it seemed to be the windiest night it made a lot of noise. I let the hotel reception know and they said it would be sorted. Will use the hotel again when staying in the area for work.
