  • Quiet. Very friendly staff. Vegetarian option for breakfast. Clean. 10/10

  • Would certainly book here again if/when back in the area. Thought it was excellent value for money. 10/10

  • This was a nice place, the room was clean and we both had a good nights sleep. 5/5

  • Very clean, staff very friendly. 9.5/10

  • Very good value for your money. I recently stayed at this place for a combined work trip and reunion with some old friends.

    This is a very nice clean place. The bed in the room had a good quality mattress and there were some other nice touches as well like the hot chocolate, fridge and roller blinds between the curtains and the windows to keep the sun out, as a light sleeper I appreciated this more than most I expect!

    I was concerned about finding somewhere that would be quiet at night as South Shields has a reputation for being lively at night but thankfully this place is a few streets to the south of all the excitement so I was not disturbed. So perhaps more suited to families and us poor souls who stay away from home during the week for work rather than those heading for the pubs and clubs of South Shields - you'd have a few streets to negotiate through to find your bed afterwards and admittedly there are places much closer to the 'action' than here if that is to be the purpose of your visit.

    At breakfast there was lots of choice and it was freshly made. Aside from the pubs and clubs it is central for everything else you'd want - restaurants, the supermarket, shopping zone, the main in/out roads to South Shields and of course the Metro train line to Newcastle upon Tyne city centre and the airport.

    I will come back and stay here when next up in South Shields as I felt it was very good value for money.

    Liked - Quiet yet central location.

    Disliked - Can't think of anything. 5/5

  • 4.6/5

  • Friendly warm atmosphere. 10/10

  • The location was perfect and the service was excellent. We are very satisfied with the stay. 6/6

  • Good location, good for cyclists. We stayed here with our bikes during a cycling holiday because they have secure & dry cycle parking and an outside tap to wash our gear off. Good location. Rooms were clean and very nice, had hot chocolate to drink! We liked being given a map of the area and attractions after I asked the owner for directions. It's close to town, a few minutes down the road and the parks are a shorter walk in another direction. Outside seating for smokers (as it's non smoking inside) and the breakfast was good. Our room used a shared bathroom and separate toilets which were very clean and looked quite new. We had wanted an ensuite but they were already gone when I booked but we had no complaints about the shared facilities. And unlike the previous girl we liked watching the news in the dining room at breakfast, eating in silence wouldn't have been very nice! Overall we couldn't have been happier and we would definitely recommend this guest house. Thumbs up from two happy cyclists! Liked provision for cyclists, breakfast was freshly made, being given the area map. Disliked that we only stayed two nights! Can't think of any negatives. 5/5

    - Guest feedback after a four night stay in one of our standard single bedrooms.

  • This is not a luxury hotel but a straight forward B&B by the sea. It is clean, comfortable, quiet and run by friendly helpful people who know how to cook and English breakfast. (The last place I stayed at didn't!) If in the area again I would not waste time and effort looking for somewhere else. 9/10

  • 5/5. I had the chance to spend a few nights at this guesthouse and I must say the feeling is very positive at Annie's guesthouse. The atmosphere is pleasant and the smiles from the staff is cheering. It is an excellent place to stay and am looking forward to another stay at Annie's guesthouse.

  • This was a nice place, the room was clean and we both had a good nights sleep. Very good breakfast and no problems with parking either. I've stayed at other places nearby and had to park a few streets away because of all the sea front visitors taking up the streets with cars so this b&b was much better. Will definitely come back. Nice rooms.

  • 9.2/10

  • Good location, nice people, room was very clean, great breakfast. Will definitely say again. Very nice room. 10/10

  • Thank you so much. Will definitely recommend you. - Thank you card from a guest who stayed with us in one of our standard single bedrooms for eight weeks whilst working in the North East.

  • 4/5. A stage of my cycling tour through England, South Shields surprised me with its Ocean Road (which actually leads to the Sea!), its wealth of restaurants, and its night life at King's Street. And with the great service at Annie's, where fast talking Linda tested my English and helped me cleaning the last traces of mud on my bike from the days before.

  • Thank you for all.
    - Thank you card from a guest who stayed five nights in one of our standard single rooms.

  • Great service, good location, parking close by. 9.2/10

    - Thank you card from a couple who stayed in one of our double en-suite bedrooms for three weeks.

  • I had a nice room, comfy bed, nice and quiet. Very good breakfast. Liked the free parking. I will definitely stay there again. 6/6

  • Favourite place to stay in the North East. I have stayed at Annie's about six times now and I always stay here when I'm up in the NE for work so I can have my cooked breakfast at 630 in the morning for my early starts for work! The internet is free here (and there aren't any internet cafes in SS) and I can park outside with no hassle. Most of the other places I've stayed in SS have been noisy at night because they're right opposite the pubs and clubs and curry houses but this b&b is on a residential street so you don't have to year the people coming out of the pubs and clubs and making a noise - a massive bonus! 5/5

  • Very enjoyable experience, June was lovely and helpful. Will be back.

  • Thanks! Lovely welcome by June - everything I needed to know & useful help & map to find somewhere to eat last night. Room is warm & comfortable. A comfortable stay!

  • Superb! Nice one.

  • Great.

  • Another enjoyable stay thank you.

  • Everything perfect!!

  • Excellent hospitality, would definitely recommend. Home from home.

  • I enjoyed the hospitality.

  • Nothing's changed from last week. Still good.

  • The provision of wi-fi internet was really useful and I received much-needed assistance from the staff in configuring my laptop. Very small but adequate single room, but no complaints given the price. Excellent breakfast. 5/6
