The Kingsmere is a lovely traditional guesthouse near to the town and beach. The owners, Sally and Paul are natural hosts and made us very welcome. The room was really clean and beautifully decorated. Plenty of space, loads of coat hangers and even soft fluffy bathrobes. Nice extra touches of water bottles by the bed and 'emergency' crisps and sweets...

We arrived to find my wife had been provided with a lovely bath robe and slippers. The choice for breakfast is better than in most hotels - and all freshly cooked. Also has free parking in the street. Paul was a very good host.

The room I had had everything needed (a small niggle...

The guest house is in a great location in South Shields, in walking distance of the beach and fair. Rooms are clean (ours was very spacious), with lots of small additional finishing touches to make you feel really welcome. In summary, excellent location, excellent accommodation, excellent hosts!

Lovely, friendly hosts that cook a super breakfast and are very welcoming. There are lovely little touches for the children in the room (sweets, Fruit Shoots etc) and pancakes for breakfast. Board games and free wi-fi to keep them entertained also. The rooms were spotless and freshly decorated - the only downside was that the rooms were a little warm...

This is a good, well-located B&B, ideal situation to get to all the amenities that South Shields has to offer.

Last minute trip and Paul and Sally could not help us enough I was amazed how much they have transformed the place in such a short time the difference is clear to see.

If you like a B & B that goes the extra mile to make your stay special, then look no further than the Kingsmere.
