About the Project
The Best Western Sea Hotel was acquired in 2018 and occupies a prime spot at the heart of South Shields seafront.
Overlooking the picturesque South Marine Park and Littlehaven Beach it’s at the heart of the seaside and a great choice for a leisure or business trip. The hotel also has excellent conference and wedding facilities which have proven popular with local residents.
Purchased in 2018, the 37 bedroom hotel is going through a full exterior and interior renovation in line with our brand. We are also refurbishing the dining and leisure offering, including the wedding venue and conference space.
In 2013, South Tyneside announced South Shields 365, a £100 million redevelopment of South Shields town centre, with the sustainable economic vision to breathe new life into the community. This is an ambitious vision to reinvigorate and bring extra vitality to the South Shields town centre. The successful completion of phase one included The Word, National Centre for the Written Word recognised as a cultural venue of regional and national significance, and the renovated and remodelled market place. In addition, a new 40 space car park was created. Phase two of South Shields 365 includes the new Transport Interchange.
