Chose this accommodation purely on availability and affordability. This was the last leg of our coast to coast family bicycle trip (Hadrian’s Cycleway). The Hotel is easy to find and convenient for local amenities and restaurants. The family room we had was spacious and adequate

I've stayed here many times and have never had any problems. My room has always been clean and staff are always helpful and friendly. Good breakfast, cooked to order. Free parking at rear and good location, close to where my family live.

The cruise terminal is in North Shields the William Fox is in South Shields. However a short taxi drive via the tyne tunnel the terminal is very close to the tunnel. The hotel is comfy and the staff friendly. Did you know the tv crime series "Vera" is filmed in this area and you will recognise scenes from the series when leaving the cruise terminal, so keep an eye out. Have a nice cruise.
