    All we can say is - Thank you for providing the excellent start to our short break.

    Whitley Bay itself is going through a total refurbishment (i.e. new esplanade being built and a number of hotels / B&Bs have just been sold and awaiting update).

    From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome by the owner (Andrew) of the B&B. We were shown the bedrooms and was given the option of selecting from 1 of 2 rooms that were currently available on the first floor. The owner offered to carry our cases to the room. Once in the room we checked all of the normal points that you look for - including the bed mattress, pillows, bed covers, cleanliness of toilet, shower head and grouting around the tiles / base - everything passed with flying colours. Having read previous feedbacks before booking this B&B I thought that some of them (99%) were going a bit over the top but it turns out that they were all true. Could not find any faults at all. The breakfast was cooked by Sonia (Andrew's wife) and it can only be classed as excellent. We had a good chat with Andrew, in the evening, and he explained what was where within Whitley Bay in respect of dining options, etc. We only stayed for one night as we were on our way to the DFDS mini cruise sailing from North Shields to Amsterdam and it was only approx. 4 miles from the harbour. We will certainly book this B&B again, when we are in the area.

    We arrived quite late but nothing was too much trouble. We were shown to our room and were told about the local area. The room was really spacious, really clean and comfortable.Breakfast was excellent, lots of cereal, toast and a fantastic cooked breakfast. A fantastic B&B that we will definitely stay in again when we are back in the area.

    Really excellent service - a great room - a great breakfast - kind, friendly and attentive hosts. The landlord provided skimmed milk for me on the second day - although I had merely enquired if they had any. You don't EVER have that sort of attention in a hotel. Local advice was really helpful. We felt that nothing was too much trouble!
