The room was very clean and had everything we needed for a short stay. The tea room was very busy when we arrived, seems like it is very popular with the locals, and there was...

I used trip advisor reviews to select somewhere to stay from Aug16 to Mar17 whilst working in South Tyneside. The Clifton is fantastic and I would highly recommend to others. The rooms are spotlessly clean, the beds really comfy and breakfasts fresh and cooked to order! I stayed 2-3 nights each week over this period. I would strongly suggest contacting...

Went to celebrate my wife's 65th birthday with an afternoon tea at this cosy, friendly and clean tea room, greeted by friendly staff, although sandwiches were small and few, the cakes and scones made up for it, and all washed down by latte coffee and pots of tea, all very reasonable priced. I would recommend this eatery to anyone. A...

We stayed over the weekend in a twin and double room, which were both amazing, with everything you need. Lovely modern facilities which were immaculate. The staff were very professional, friendly and went above and beyond for us, making us feel so welcome. The cafe was also a great place to eat or just stop for coffee. Fantastic place..

You must try the restroom at Clifton. Haven't had a bad meal yet and the staff are so friendly. All day breakfasts are great. Desserts are amazing. Ploughmans could be added to but all as sandwiches pannini are gorgeous. Been there about 6 times over the last 2 months!!!!!!
