I was brought up in Sunderland, so stayed here a number of times. It was looking a bit tired, so we loved the new refurbishment, with nautical and seaside theme (especially coming from this area it was quite nostalgic). Stayed in the Cinnamon Exec room which was very well positioned overlooking the ...
Good hotel , Metro trains from South Shields provide regular, cheap transport to Newcastle and Sunderland plus more areas of the North east. Nice walks along coast along well developed paths.
I picked this place to be a base to explore Newcastle, Hadrian's Wall, and Northumberland - and it wasn't the best choice. The guesthouse is fine - helpful hosts and great breakfast - rooms are renovated but small. Whitley Bay is too out of the way requiring a bit of driving to get anywhere - not ...
Check and check out were a breeze. Our room was excellent and we relaxed into our short stay very quickly. Breakfast had plenty of choice and was very good. When we visit again this will be our 1st choice if available. Allan
Think of Tyne and Wear and you'll probably envisage the bustling cities of Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Sunderland. This is just part of the story, however. Tyne and Wear also boasts a beautiful, rugged coastline, beaches, coastal paths and a number of seaside attractions. And it's also got some excellent beach hotels, providing great accommodation for all tastes and budgets.
Tyne and Wear's coastline is arguably responsible for the prosperity of its great cities, and the region was once a major shipbuilding area, with busy dockyards all along the River Tyne. Since the local shipbuilding industries have gradually diminished, the Tyne and Wear coast has been largely reclaimed by nature. Now it is an unspoiled and stunning part of the country just waiting to be discovered by curious explorers!
Some of Tyne and Wear's top tourist attractions are located along the coastline. These include Tynemouth Priory and Castle, a Benedictine Priory that was built in the 1090s and used to serve both as a religious building and fortress. If you're looking for an authentic seaside experience then pop down to Whitley Bay, billed as the North East's answer to Blackpool and boasting a long strip of sandy beach.
The Tyne and Wear coastline is a haven for nature and a great place to visit for those who love the great outdoors. Keen cyclists might embark on the Coast to Coast cycle path, which (depending on which way you're heading) starts from Newcastle Quayside. Birdwatchers can head out towards Washington Wild Fowl Park or Marsden Rock Bird Reserve. And that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, and a good reason why you should opt to stay in a Tyne and Wear beach hotel or guesthouse next time you find yourself in the in the county.
There are lots of great beach hotels and guesthouses to choose from, including the four-star Marriott Hotel, which is located on Queens Parade Seaburn in the amazing city of Sunderland, situated right on the beach and a short distance from top attractions like The National Glass Centre and The Stadium of Light, Sunderland's ground.
