Big chain hotels are dependable but small independent places like this have soul. Some are fantastic;others are grim. The Chimneys is newly reopened and is heading steadily towards the fantastic end of the spectrum. Very warm welcome, comfortable bed, fine breakfast, clean and pleasantly situated. Weaknesses? A shower is pretty much essential these days as well as a bath. As... More

A lovely welcome. My single room was a good size, bedding beautifully laundered and comfortable. TV well positioned. Internet signal in room was fine. Secure parking was great as I'm a travelling salesperson. The location was superb for a walk before a deliciously, freshly cooked chicken in a hot BBQ sauce. I slept really well and had a decent breakfast... More

I recently stayed at The Chimneys which has recently been redecorated by the new family proprietors. Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel at home immediately. Our room was clean and comfortable with a flat screen TV and a large bathroom. Dinner that evening was good and breakfast the next morning was a hearty meal with... More

in the heart of the village of Blakhall between Sunderland and Hartlepool and a stone's throw from the sea, the Chimneys is a smart and friendly hotel that provides a pleasant environment, friendly staff and comfortable, well-appointed rooms. I was well looked after and slept soundly in a very comfortable bed.bTop marks for The Chimneys!

We have used this restaurant many times in the past. Unfortunately it was closed for a time, so we were pleased when it reopened. How disappointed we were! We were told abruptly to go to the bar, then wait to be shown to a table. The bar was sticky and dirtied my top, there was no Cider or Stella as... More

Thank you for your review, albeit a little unfair we think.We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your Sunday lunch as much as everyone else, as for the food being bland we do season however to cater for such a high number of guests (120 last Sunday) we tend to leave extra seasoning to the individuals taste as...
