My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at this superb little bed and breakfast. Location was excellent. Rooms were a decent size with good beds and tastefully decorated and the staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful. Breakfast was varied and very filling. Will certainly be staying here again. 👍👍😃😃

A relatively large guest house close to Ocean Road. All up hill but not to bad. The property is spotless but a little old fashioned . But a very reasonable price. Breakfasts are excellent and cooked to order. Plenty of choice. The owner and staff are lovely and extremely helpful. Would definitely stay there again and recommend .

We stayed for 2 nights for the South Tyneside Festival, the location was great for Bent Park, beach and town centre. Accommodation was great, beds comfy, staff friendly and couldn't do enough for you. Breakfast was lovely all freshly cooked and very enjoyable. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely book again.

We stayed for two nights and were given a family room which was simply huge. A double and 2 single beds with sofa, wardrobe, en-suite and space! Great duvets and pillows made for a good night's sleep. The breakfast on both mornings was wonderful, fresh, beautifully cooked ingredients which were excellent. Gill and Ellen did a brilliant job with personalities...

My partner booked a room for the night so we could go drinking somewhere different for my birthday. The house is spotless and they even had the decorators in. The bed was comfy, the room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was also lovely. Will use again if we go to South Shields again.

My stay at Brittania was relaxing and wonderful. Ellen was just fabulous and ever so helpful. There were a few issues with room upon checkin and she rushed straight up to sort. Great location, 2 minutes walk to park/beach, restaurants and train station. Although it could do with an update, I was very very happy with my accommodation. Comfy bed,...
