Dinner and breakfast were great and excellent value. The staff member in the morning was brilliant and more than happy to get me soya milk A bigger sign to...

Very nice stay in this beach front hotel. The room I was staying in has recently been updated in a modern nautical theme. This is my third stay here, it's a great hotel if you need to be near Newcastle and Sunderland but not in the centre. There are two restaurants in the hotel, my favourite is the very good...

Group of six for lunch, decided to try this eatery in the Roker Hotel. We liked the decor and found the menu to be extensive enough to provide a good choice for us all. Quickly seated and served, we all were happy with our food. It was noted that the hanging kebabs got cold quite quickly bur were nevertheless enjoyed....

One of the nice things about this beachfront hotel is the free parking. We managed to park at the front although there is extra parking at the rear. On checking in, the young lass at reception directed us to our room, 107. It was a very compact room and quite a long trek to get to it. I asked another...

I stayed here on a family trip with my mum. The hotel staff were all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The ambience of the public spaces downstairs is very laid back the food was excellent in both the breakfast room and bar. The room was clean and a good size. There's a great view of the beach and the lighthouse from...

Visited this hotel last weekend and were not disappointed. The hotel is situated on the seafront at Sunderland. The rooms are clean, modern, well appointed with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Everyone we encountered at the hotel were extremely pleasant and went out of their way to help. The prices in the restaurant and bar were good and...

We booked as a family (7 of us) to go and see Roker where my dad lived as a boy. What a pleasant surprise this hotel was. It's an old well established hotel that looks like it's recently been refurbished, from the modern bar right through to the toilets which have been done in a lovely Victorian style. A friendly...

I stayed here for 2 nights on a business trip and the hotel is just OK. The heated towel rain in the bathroom was leaking and the room was small. They also forgot my early morning wake up call - not good when you are going to the airport. The bar attached is nice for drinks and the food is...

Having stayed at The Roker before, we booked an overnight stay recently when attending a retirement night. Rooms have been refurbished nicely. Unfortunately the bedding did not match the standard of the room. The sheets were very rough, & uncomfortable. My partner actually took skin off his elbow when moving around while asleep. Other friends staying at the hotel found...
