Me and my brothers stayed at this B&B for a function we were attending at the Cullercoates club. I regularly have nights away in different locations and have had my fill of badly run, scruffy guest houses. But this place is an absolute gem. Warm and welcoming hosts, very clean, spacious room, lovely decor and extremely accommodating to our request for an early breakfast. They would have been well within their rights to decline as they offer a really decent breakfast time slot. A change of plan meant we had to be away quite early in the morning but they very kindly sorted us with a fantastic breakfast and their continental selection is brilliant! There is plenty of on street parking, as well as a bit of space at the front of the property so that was handy. It's in a great location - just a few mins walk either way to pubs and restaurants. I can honestly say this is one of the best guest houses I've stayed in!

What’s not to like? 5 mins walk from Whitley Bay station. 3 minutes to the beach. The BEST breakfast I have had in this price range and a fair bit higher. Massive breakfast choice. Friendly and helpful hosts. What’s not to like?

Very comfortable, clean and superbly decorated hosts were fantastic couldn't of asked for more. Ideally located a short walk from the sea front one way and the metro station the other way which was perfect as we had travelled for a rugby weekend in Newcastle. Very nice full English breakfast provided with plenty of other options to suit all tastes highly recommended
