We were visiting family in Gateshead and normally check in to a comfortable but small standard hotel room. Having done a lot of that recently we decided to look for something nicer by the sea and found this wonderful apartment.
All of the descriptions and reviews are correct. It is a very spacious place to be, which really felt like a home with everything you could need for a great weekend or longer. We were really impressed with the level of provisions, from the comfortable beds to kitchen equipment and massive 8 ring cooker, the large range of dvd's, games and books, really quick internet connection and most helpfully a parking permit for the street outside.
The view over the North Sea is beautiful and a real treat to sit in front of first thing in the morning. It is located on the main promenade so the award winning sandy beach is literally over the road. Also over the road is a great cafe which does a very tasty full English breakfast and the largest bowl of porridge we have ever been served.
Tynemouth looked like a great place to stay with an aquarium and 'Lost World' park for the family visits, which we will be recommending to our son and his family. Unfortunately we didn't get to eat out in Tynemouth but we did drive around and it looked like there are some very good restaurants as listed on TripAdvisor.
Overall we weren't visiting for long but really enjoyed what time we had and will definitely return for longer on our next visit.
This is the second time I have spent a holiday in this apartment with my daughter and granddaughters. Both times we have had a wonderful time. Everything was wonderful.
I have one problem though. I have still not received my deposit back after a month and have been unable to find out why.
My booking reference is BR2256654. I would be pleased if someone could deal with this for me.
We stayed here for 3 weeks visiting friends and family and it was the perfect location. The apartment itself was spacious and well decorated - perfect for our family of 4 - a real home from home. We return to the area regularly to visit friends and family so will be back!
We spent four nights here with friends when attending the Rugby League Magic Weekend at St James Park in Newcastle.
When we arrived at the apartment we had a bit of a shock as the entrance hall and stairs were having a total refurbishment. However, when entered the apartment we were very pleasantly surprised. It is very well equipped with all the facilities you would require.
It is in a good location, with wonderful views over Longsands beach. It is within walking distance of Tynemouth village where there are numerous places to eat and drink- Longsands Fish Kitchen is a must. It is convenient for the Metro and there are bus stops just outside.
The only drawback for the weekend was the weather, but that can't be helped!!
Excellent accommodation with a perfect view of Tynemouth Longsands. Great spot to sit and watch the surfers or wander into the village of Tynemouth. We were up visiting family and would certainly stay again.
