Enjoyed 2 nights staying at The Clifton while staying in the area. Friendly and helpful staff, nicely decorated Guest House with clean, modern rooms and comfy bed. Nice, popular Cafe located in the downstairs. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for our annual Christmas shopping trip to the Metro Centre. Great place to stay. Comfortable rooms. Staff are very welcoming. Breakfast was great and they even offered a gluten free version to most things on the lunch menu. GF chocolate fudge cake was amazing!! Definitely coming back to stay again and soon.

Have been to the Clifton Cafe a few times and it is always good. The staff are friendly and helpful and the menu has a good choice with delicious cakes too. Only (very tiny) gripe is slightly too much salad dressing and caramel sauce all over the cake!

We were in South Shields to celebrate our friend's 60th birthday. Booking into The Clifton turned out to be an excellent choice. The Clifton does not have many rooms but has a lovely atmosphere. The staff are very pleasant and extremely helpful. Our room was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean as was our bathroom. Breakfast choices are good. A full...

Stayed for a couple of nights just for a short break. Room very clean and hosts very welcoming. Central spot for visiting park, funfair and beach as well as shops. Breakfast good, one small criticism was that milk, cereal, jams etc were cleared away well before 9am - guess this must be because coffee shop opens at 9. This would...
