Pros: The owner was very warm and welcoming when I arrived. I was impressed with the high standard of cleanliness in the property. The view from my room was lovely and the sea view morning walk, just outside the property, was stunning. ☀
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The room was spotlessly clean. The view was more than I expected from what is, essentially, a budget priced guest house. Breakfast is excellent value as an add-on (the only tinned item was the baked beans). I was so impressed I stayed an extra night! There are plenty of eateries within a 5 minute walk so who could ask for more?
Cons: The only minus is the shared bathroom and toilet facilities, but in a house of this style and age there is nothing that can be done, so?? It's acceptable on balance and I for one do not spend 2 days in the bathroom.

Cons: Squeaky floorboards.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The warm welcome of the owners! Absolutely amazing, how they care about clientele. Taking into consideration it is a B&B , they provide a much farther service than that. They even feature free water daily, a full set of toiletries daily, only to be found at top class hotels. Towels are presented beautifully in various shapes on the top of the bed. A extensive selection of teas, Daily bed turn down. Daily towels change . Many low cost hotels do not provide this... . Cozy, homy atmosphere. Excellent breakfast with an extended schedule. So many hotels you have to take really early breakfast, which is non sense. When staying at an hotel , breakfast times should be until at least 11 o’clock, whereas most are till 9/9.30. Hotel accommodation not army barracks! Vast TV channels choice and even cd and DVD’s player, providing cd/dvd options! I was astonished. I though was staying at a 5 stars deluxe property ! Location fantastic. The sea is 5 minutes walking, restaurants, just cross the street, pubs further down, amusement park 29 minutes, beach promenade 5 minutes. Definitely recommend 100%.! Feel like return all the time. Congratulations to the lovely and helpful couple who owns it!Beth and Tom.
Cons: Nothing! Everything exceed my expectations!

7.9 Good
Pros: Great location for my needs. Clean and a great price for the double room I had. Accommodated my early arrived which I had asked for prior to arriving. Friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Car park a little small for everyone but still managed to park. No-one around for early checkout (6am) so had to leave keys on reception - maybe a little dropbox in case someone wonders off with them?

10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is a gem and I'm so happy to have found it - will probably stay there every time I go back to the North East. I cannot say how pleased I was with every aspect of my visit. The people are wonderful - super friendly, helpful, considerate and professional. The room was exactly appropriate for my purposes and everything I needed to accomplish. The location is beautiful and a real surprise to me - I grew up just a few miles away and was completely unaware of this quiet, elegant neighbourhood. What remains to be said is about the Full English Breakfast - everything you could ask and more, especially the black pudding, which I cannot get in Texas! My sincerest thanks to all at the Sir William Fox for making my visit successful, comfortable and highly enjoyable.
Cons: Don't be daft - what was there not to love.
5.0 Okay

Cons: I couldn't help noticing on checkin that staff numbers were very thin on the ground and so we ate out the first night. Our room was spacious and there were generous supplies of tea and coffee but the kettle lead didn't stretch to the nearest plug socket - so had to sit on the floor when used. The fan didn't work in the bathroom.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the huge bath and separate shower and King size bed with luxurious chocolate extras coffee etc. Huge TV to watch room immaculate Bed so comfortable vegetarian breakfast was great. Would definitely come back again.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The welcome, friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts, the food was top notch and very well presented. If there was anything you needed to know about the area Janet has a wealth of knowledge. It’s a beautiful guest house, spotlessly clean, and the photographs don’t do it justice. It really didn’t disappoint in any way shape or form. The guest house is very central to all amenities; the beach is only a few minutes walk as is the fun fair so very good for families too! There is also a lovely park for taking walks and also a boating lake. Very good for all and the children would love the little steam train ride that travels around the lake area. There are many restaurants within the vicinity so if you like Indian, Italian, Mediterranean or good old fish and chips there is something there to suit all tastes. The metro station is only a few minutes walk into the town area too. We took the metro to Newcastle for the day on a ‘day saver’ ticket that can be used as many times as you’d like in the day and the cost was only just a little over £5 per ticket per adult. Well worth it! It was our first visit to South Shields and we will certainly be returning.
Cons: There really wasn’t anything we didn’t like. We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Nothing really. If I had to complain for anything, it would be the loud talking (screaming) of some uncouth people in the street below in the middle of the night. I guess this is occasional and not a regular issue for the local authorities.

Pros: Loved the huge bath and separate shower and King size bed with luxurious chocolate extras coffee etc. Huge TV to watch room immaculate Bed so comfortable vegetarian breakfast was great. Would definitely come back again.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The welcome, friendliness and helpfulness of the hosts, the food was top notch and very well presented. If there was anything you needed to know about the area Janet has a wealth of knowledge. It’s a beautiful guest house, spotlessly clean, and the photographs don’t do it justice. It really didn’t disappoint in any way shape or form. The guest house is very central to all amenities; the beach is only a few minutes walk as is the fun fair so very good for families too! There is also a lovely park for taking walks and also a boating lake. Very good for all and the children would love the little steam train ride that travels around the lake area. There are many restaurants within the vicinity so if you like Indian, Italian, Mediterranean or good old fish and chips there is something there to suit all tastes. The metro station is only a few minutes walk into the town area too. We took the metro to Newcastle for the day on a ‘day saver’ ticket that can be used as many times as you’d like in the day and the cost was only just a little over £5 per ticket per adult. Well worth it! It was our first visit to South Shields and we will certainly be returning.
Cons: There really wasn’t anything we didn’t like. We had a very enjoyable 3 night stay.

Overview Reviews
Located at the mouth of the Tyne in South Shields, The Sea Hotel, Sure Hotel Collection by Best Western is ideally placed for taking trips to Sunderland and Newcastle; we're within easy reach of the A1 and A19. Above all, we're proud of our personality.and make every effort to make every stay superb. The friendly service, comfortable interiors and modern facilities certainly help us! For the business traveler, our meeting rooms are a must, while a secure car park means you can enjoy peace of mind in more ways than one. While you’re here we recommend a stroll along the beautiful coast, though Beamish Open Air Museum, Durham Cathedral, Hadrian's Wall and the Angel of the North are well worth a look-see too! Enjoy your stay.

5.4 Okay
Pros: The location
Cons: The lack of finish on the improvements; wonky toilet roll holder, wonky toilet seat, plastic cups but glass bottles water, water in kettle, small bed in executive room, dusty lights, thin walls, stained cushions, stained carpet, dirty entrance mat.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Clean... lovely breakfast... Great location... friendly staff..
Cons: No lift
6.7 Good
Pros: Staff were friendly. Breakfast was brilliant.
Cons: The new fire alarm system had provided a green light above the door which was on around the clock. It could not be extinguished. It illuminated the room at night. It was a challenge to sleep well in a room which was not dark. If we had not had such a busy schedule over two days, we would have found somewhere else to stay for the second night. I reported my unhappiness to Reception but received no feedback. I do not believe, in such a small room, that safety considerations need to highlight the escape route.
