Stayed couple of nights. Good seaside location but no view (see photo) from my room, not sea facing. The hotel is dated and lift was not working when I was there. Not the Marriott standard I expect.

Upon checking in we were asked if we wanted help with our bags as the lift wasn't working. For the next three days it was broken and later discovered it had been out of action for over three months! Apparently there was another lift nearby but we were not told and had just assumed the lift would be repaired soon.... More

Rooms well furnished and bed very comfortable. Bathrooms well stocked clean and bright. Proper coat hangers, always a relief. Only niggle was the additional charge for porridge which is poor practice. Room service prompt but basic. Staff a delight to deal with. Would definitely use again.

This place has everything I need for a low key night away on business. Small but decent pool, small but decent Gym, other leisure facilities, Good Breakfast, Great Staff and big comfortable rooms with a decent selection of TV Channels. Right on the beach but never got to use it. There's a brilliant run you can do up the coast... More

The Marriott seemed like a nice Hotel so we booked our room. Wow what a room it was, there is three of us, my husband, myself and daughter. The accommodation was excellent as we... More

Stayed for 2 nights with my family, I know the area really well and was unsure where to stay but this proved a good choice. Yes it's not the usual Marriott corporate image ,as it is an older property, but that should not detract from the wonderful staff and service you are provided with when staying here. Absolutely nothing is... More

Sunderland is not a spot noted for visitors. It is town of 0.25 million people devastated by successive right wing governments. Burt should you visit there you have a pleasant surprise waiting for you for here can be found the most friendly and pleasant people in England. It is not blessed with many hotels either so we chose The Marriot.... More

Very nice rooms with sea view. Breakfast excellent. Walk across to the beach and then head noth along the brilliant coastal path to South Shield 7 miles away and get the E1 bus back to the hotel. Stunning coastline. Shame no wi if in the room.

Stayed here recently for the third time in recent years. Last time we'd had a rather noisy bathroom fan and a problem with corridor light shining under the room door at night - not major problems but enough to warrant mentioning to the reception at checkout. I was subsequently very gratified to receive an Email from the manager apologising and... More
