I stayed alone on a Monday and the chap that checked me in was friendly and helpful. The room was good, clean and comfy and for the money excellent. The location is fantastic and the place itself is unique. The only negatives are breakfast does not start till 7.30am and I had no milk in my room for a morning... More

A great relaxed atmosphere and the staff were outstanding. I was made to feel very welcome and the breakfast staff were great. Nothing was too much trouble and unlike the larger hotels they... More

We booked three rooms here while visiting the area for a wedding. The location is lovely, right on the sea front. What a shame that the rooms all have views of the car park. We arrived at about 9:30 on Friday night and found an 80's disco in full swing! I have to admit we had a really good time.... More

Visited here today with my Mam after getting a voucher on LivingSocial. We were greeted by friendly staff who sat us down and were quite quick with getting our drinks and afternoon tea ordered. They were very accommodating with our dietary requirements as I'd mentioned when booking about both of us not eating pork products and this was double checked... More

My mother and I went down to the Pullman for afternoon tea today. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely bearded fella who took us around to the carriage, we were seated and served by a girl named Jade, she was very attentive and really friendly. The tea itself was very nice, little finger sandwiches, scone and cake bites... More

I was recently a bridesmaid for a friend and had the most wonderful day at The Pullman. The Pullman has been beautifully restored and has a lovely atmosphere with friendly approachable staff. The food, both for the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet was of a very high standard, the chocolate brownie was particularly delicious. Everything ran without a hitch... More

Just returned from a visit to The Pullman. It was fantastic. Great staff - especially the manager, Simon, who couldn't do enough to help. Our room was comfortable, clean and homely. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting not so sunny Sunderland!
