The room was clean tidy with plenty of space, with usual tea, coffee tv etc - with bath (had a good soak). The location was good for me as quite...

The room was large, and pretty clean, but seemed a little, well, sparse; like no controls on the radiators.

Very pleasantly surprised about this Hotel looks very deceiving from the outside but on entering the hotel we were extremely well greeted from Michael on reception and what made our stay even more special is that he had upgraded us to the Honeymoon suite at no extra cost and what a room it was very large and spacious had a...

Stayed over with my Dad as we went to the England match in nearby Sunderland. Great location for travelling around the North East. Great hotel, nice rooms, nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Will be staying again for sure to try the restaurant.

Went for a family birthday meal, first visit but had heard good things, we weren't disappointed - staff were very attentive without being pushy. Order was taken promptly and arrived in a timely manner, started with free garlic bread for the table which was a lovely surprise. All nine of us had starters and Mains everything was delicious.

only came for food as we know the Sambuca brand is always very good value and we weren't disappointed we all had potatoe wedges for a starter, a pasta main and ice cream for desert and we all had a coke to drink. £28.80 final bill was good value.
