        OK B&B in need of a face lift”
        Beautiful exterior shame the inside didn't match. The place just feels a bit run down and in need of some work. However the staff were friendly and the room comfortable and quiet, which for me is key. Breakfast could be better as the full English tasted like it had been sitting under a hot plate for a few hours! All in all fine for a basic B&B for a night.

        Quick check in on arrival. Room was lovely. Arrived a few minutes late for breakfast on our last morning, they made us a lovely cooked breakfast, which was well received by us. Well done, we will definitely stay again. Thank you x

        Great stay, perfect location”
        This hotel is excellent value for money, the location was perfect. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the place was spotlessly clean
        I had a great stay, the hotel is perfectly located for my needs when visiting South Shields. It's both close to the town centre and the beach and has transport links close by for travelling further. The hotel is definitely good value for money. I found the hotel to be nice and quiet even though it was very busy. Breakfast was tasty and arrived quickly both mornings and there was a large selection to suit all needs. The staff are all very friendly and really helpful. The hotel was spotlessly clean and my room (26) was perfect for my needs. There was plenty of space to move around, a large double wardrobe, a dressing table with two drawers and a shelf, a lamp, and a kettle with tea/coffee & biscuits etc. there was a hairdryer and an iron. The room also had a flatscreen tv. I did have a glitch with the water on the Friday night but all was fine on Saturday and Sunday. To be honest I'm sure they would have sorted it for me but I didn't report it as I was in a mega rush. By the morning all was fine so there was no big issue. I honestly didn't expext my room to be serviced over the weekend as I was only staying two nights but it was and all the towels were replaced. The hotel in general and my room were spotlessly clean. I didn't see a spec of dust anywhere. I think the poor reports people have given this place are well over the top and totally unnecessary. It's a lovely hotel and I'd certainly recommend it to anyone travelling to South Shields.

        dim light in bedroom.reported but not actioned. ”
        breakfast good but table.comfy bed. TV.
        Lacks atmosphere and felt a bit like a rest home.carpark at rear of hotel hard to find as permit holders only at front so you have to drive almost a mile round then no signpost for potholed car park. No leaflets in room of places of interest or what's on. Table not laid up. room far too dark. dim lights. bathroom light in room. had brown colour inside when on. dark grey walls. dark grey carpets. very dull. dining colours. No one ever on reception. Staff seemed to always be in kitchen though were pleasant. Wouldn't stay again.

        We won't be returning.”
        Good location. Good breakfast. Reasonably priced.
        Not the best experience. Stayed 2 nights but only slept about 2 hours the first night due to a noisy central heating boiler below our room. Complained and was offered £10. Having stated that a refund would be acceptable they proceeded to offer (which I reluctantly accepted). They therefore saved £5 but as a result have an unsatisfied customer rather than a satisfied one. That doesn't seem good business sense to me !!

        I stayed at the william fox in south shields to attend my brothers engagement & this was an ideal location for quietness & also for the metro system which could take you to the city in under 30 minutes. The hotel staff where very friendly & helpful & the highlight of my stay was the ample breakfast which set me up for the day , a definite yes to stay here again if i am in the area
