  • "The accommodation was as good as we anticipated, in an excellent location, close to the sea and with good views."

    The large green space opposite was an added bonus. For our purposes it was near to the Tynemouth Tyne & Wear Metro station.

  • "Firstly the positives: the location is excellent - being able to see the sea out of the side window was a huge positive, as is the green space in front of the property."

    Tynemouth is a short walk away as are a few lovely beaches. The living room is beautiful - lovely high ceilings with original details and modern décor which complemented the room. Yes, the bedroom is tight for space, but this is not much of an issue when you have such a lovely and large main living room to sit in and enjoy. Unfortunately there were a few niggles: Although we were very grateful for being able to move into another property when it was clear that the Internet connection did not work this did lead to stress and we lost at least two hours chasing this issue and then moving from one location to another. Relying on other guests to clean the dishes ready for the next guests is all well and good, but these should be checked when the cleaning is done in between guests. Two mugs had disgusting white deposits in the bottom and goodness knows what the sticky, oily substance was which was lining the cutlery drawer. In the end we washed items before we used them to be on the safe side and then didn't put them back into the cupboards! Additionally I'm not sure when the living room was last vacuumed thoroughly - my husband found bits of tinsel and Christmas tree needles on the floor (this was at the end of January). Overall the location was excellent, the flat was decorated well, but the cleaning was poor and the broken Internet, although resolved, did cause issues.

    Hi Claire Thanks for the positive feedback. Regarding the the cleanliness of the flat we used an external cleaning company as we were out of the country visiting family for Xmas and new year and did not return till jan 30th. In the future we will consider closing down the property when we are away We do not ask or expect guests to clean anything in our holiday lets as it is something we pride ourselves on. We have now changed the bed to a divan and installed a DVD player with assorted DVDs The internet problem was traced to a broken wire under the bedroom carpet which was fixed the day after we moved you into our other accommodation four doors down the road .

  • "A holiday home of 2 halves."

    What a lovely living room as expected given the type of property. Spacious and grand. Lots of extras/gimmicks in the property like an Alexa but missed key fundamentals. Was dumbfounded at the lack of tea/coffee and milk as these have without fail always been provided previously in the many Hoseasons/Sykes and similar holidays I've booked. So the second half of the property, well, it's a shame about the bedroom and shower room. With lots of twists and turns and protrusions the place really isn't suitable for any people who are - how can I put this kindly - generously proportioned. No idea why a double bed with a large wooden frame was provided in such a pokey room. A divan would have been better and wouldn't have bruised my leg and no doubt others staying there. A sleigh bed as well. No good for anybody of above average height. Pillows were too full as well. They should be thinner. We couldnt sleep on them. Not something I've ever had an issue with anywhere else. The boiler was powerful and radiators hot but why oh why fit a piddly 8.5KW shower. I really struggled to get wet. Either go for a higher power electric one or just run a thermostatic one off the boiler. So all in all a lovely living room but the rest leaved a lot to be desired. And the old fella living there who chucks his glass bottles loudly into his recycling bin at 6.30 EVERY morning was the icing on the cake.

    Hi Chris Thanks for your feedback . We do appreciate comments good and bad and are fairly new to the holiday let industry. I will endeavour to replace the shower with a power shower and install a divan bed. We did provide condiments but no one used them during the Covid pandemic. Thanks for your observations.

    Cosy bedroom and spotless shower-room. Large lounge with small well-equipped kitchen off. All 'mod cons' as expected. Free parking opposite during the week - small charge are weekend. Five minutes stroll into Tynemouth village with lots of cafes, bars and restaurants. Arrival and departure very efficient. Lots of good comms with owner. Recommended!!

  • "This was our first trip to Tynemouth so we didn’t know what to expect."

    It was also our first time using Sykes Cottages. We were anxious about taking a holiday during the virus situation. Sykes and the house managers made sure that everything possible was done to relieve us of any stress. We appreciated how clean the flat was and the pre- trip emails we received. Our managers, Derek and Pauline, went to great lengths to make sure our stay was comfortable and relaxed. Tynemouth was very well prepared too and is going to great lengths to ensure safety. We had a great trip. Highly recommend Riley’s Fish Shack and Longsands Fish Kitchen for great dining experiences.

The Grand View Apartments are two beautiful holiday properties sitting on the coast of Tynemouth, boasting an enviable position from which to explore the many wonders of this exciting area of Northumbria. Both resting on the ground floor within an exceptional Georgian terrace, these properties cater to a variety of group needs, together sleeping a total of four guests, being perfect for couples or friends seeking a relaxing break to the seaside. The immediate area of the properties offers all you could need for a self-catered stay, with Tynemouth boasting all kinds of eateries serving a wealth of cuisines such as Italian restaurants, classic fish and chip shops, global tapas bars, and Indian restaurants among the selection. Tynemouth also has two beaches, Longsands being a Blue Flag award-winning beach which has developed a reputation for being a surf destination which now hosts national championships, with several surf schools offering novices lessons in the popular sport, a great activity for couples on holiday! The second beach is the smaller King Edward's Bay, enclosed by cliffs and grassy banks, it's sheltered from the wind and lies at the foot of Tynemouth Priory and Castle.

The beaches of Whitley Bay, the bustling city of Newcastle with its lively nightlife, and the many surrounding heritage sites and castles, all make this area of the world a wonderful spot to visit on an escape to the Grand View Apartments.
