We've stayed in three guest houses in South Shields over the past year with the help of Trip Advisor and this was the best. We had a very warm welcome, and loved our room. It was very light and sunny and Janet clearly could have been an interior decorator as the furnishings were so appealing. Everything was beautifully clean and...

I was looking for a place to stay just for one night. I was lucky to find the Forest Guest House. The owners and staff could not have been friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and I have never slept in a more comfortable bed anywhere. I will definitely be going back

This review is belated. But the fact that two months later I feel compelled to come back and write a review speaks volumes as if it were mediocre I would not bother. From the way that the young lady who worked there kindly waited for us beyond her time to leave to the delicious breakfast in the morning I could...

Stayed for the weekend and could not praise this guest house any higher. Very welcoming and the breakfasts were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. Janet is also a mine of information on the local area. Would definitely stay there again

First visit to the Forest Guest House and it was a lovely experience. Only stayed one night as I was attending a course at the maritime college. In a easy to find location, free parking right outside the house. Local to shops, bars and restaurants with the college just up the road. Was given a warm welcome by Janet into...

Stayed here for a weekend and had a fantastic stay. We all felt welcome the second we stepped through the door, the rooms were immaculate, the breakfast was one of the best I've had, and the location is just a few minutes walk from the beautiful beach and town (which has good metro links to Newcastle).

Really loved it here. Great b&b, Janet was a great host and would thoroughly recommend. Great value, lovely quiet rooms - we stayed overlooking the street and didn't hear a thing. Amazing breakfast( plenty of choice for veggie and meat eaters alike). A great location a few mins walk to the the beach and town centre/metro.

To copy the review I left on Travelocity ... Being from the states and never having been to the UK before I didn't want to stay in a chain hotel. I wanted a more direct experience of the people and culture. Staying here for the week I was in South Shields this past September was absolutely the best choice I...
