an enjoyable experience at the forest guest house
on arrival, we had a warm welcome by one of the owners. first impressions were of a warm friendly guest house. The room was clean and homely , en suite a little on the small side but did the job for the time we stayed. Breakfast was cooked fresh and to perfection in a spotless kitchen adjoined to the dining area so you could see exactly what was going on and also gave opportunity to have a conversation with the very sociable hosts peter and Janet. Location of the guest house was perfect for us, as it was just a short walk to the beach and also to a lovely park. it was close to an abundance of restaurants and bars, but not noisy. shops were just a short walk away. it was our first visit to south shields and have already talked about returning to the forest guest house. overall we had an enjoyable stay.

Friendly and very helpful owners
The B&B is on the main restaurant road in South Shields, so there are lots of places to eat and it is quite quiet - though parking is not always right outside. The B&B had a great breakfast selection, and had a wide selection of teas and coffees in the room, and biscuits every day, as well as welcome Easter eggs. We had excellent hosts who changed the duvet tog when requested, and changed the DVD player when it did not work. There is a huge collection of DVDs for guests to use with a wide variety of genres. The room was very clean, and I would not hesitate to stay here again.
