    location

    I booked a room for my sons first wedding anniversary on line, weeks prior to him coming home from dubai i went down to pay on the day of arrival only to find the room was not booked, i was then given another room having been told this was on par with the one booked, as could not see the other rooms i could not compare. The room was at the back of the hotel with one small window, the toilet and bathroom were not very clean mainly the toilet, i said to my son you should of complained he said he didnt want any fuss he did not tell me this until after he and his wife had checked out otherwise as i had paid the bill i would of complained on their behalf.

    We arrived at the hotel on the Friday, the following day we discovered a leak in the ceiling, the rain had been extremely heavy. We reported this to reception twice and nothing was done. However on reporting a third time to a different receptionist we were offered a change of room and a discount on the bill.Apart from this incident we were very happy with staff and facillities, the hotel could do with a bit of updating but it is clean, comfortable and an ideal location. The dining room is very nice, food good and service very good.

    When we discovered our room had a leak from the ceiling the receptionist on duty did nothing to help, when I am staying in a hotel I expect to feel valued. However when we reported it a third time to a different receptionist she was very helpful and did everything I would have expected, she offered us a change of room and a discount for the third night. We did not change rooms as the weather had improved and the leak cleared up but it was good to have the option.

    One of the best three star hotels I have ever stayed in; nothing to fault. Staff very helpful, and meal service (and breakfast) was all one could wish for.

    Convenient location as I was meeting friends to eat in Ocean Road. Free car parking.

    General run down feel, uncomfortable bed and particularly poor pillows. About the worst scrambled eggs I've ever had, I suspect not cooked to order but made in a huge batch early on and kept warm (and thus dried out).

    Clean and tidy, facilities were good, access to the room was ok not endless corridors and stairs.

    No tv remote, requested one at approx 4pm did not receive it until nearly midnight when we were going to sleep.

    The location of the hotel has many advantages, being adjacent to the beach, beach-side fair & amusement park, and the very commendable South Marine Park just across the road. It is also within a short distance of the South Shields town centre for the shopaholics!!

    Although the outside temperature was below freezing during our stay, the temperature of the room was far too high & could not be reduced, so that we had to have the windows open - what a waste of energy!
