We were so impressed with hawksley House. We were on a " roots" trip in Sunderland and we stayed at Hawksley House for 3 nights. We took 2 apartments--myself, my daughter, and 2 sons The apartments are fully serviced, very spacious and beautifully equipped. The location on John Street is very central. The building managers are the cream of the... More

I am a contractor working in the north east an often stay in reasonably priced accommodation. I heard about Hawksley through a friend and stayed their with my partner when she visited and will now stay nowhere else if Im in the area. Clean modern well equipped apartment with a really central location.

Stayed in Flat 4, my partner was assured it was not a noisy flat when he enquired. However flat 4 is on street level of a busy road with buses passing every 30 seconds. The double glazing on the windows did not keep the traffic noise out. I'd hate to think what it would be like without double glazing. My... More

We were very pleasantly suprised by this one bedroom flat with a sofa bed in the lounge. Lovely modern fittings in a well located Victorian house. We didn't cook (ate in the restaurant downstairs) but the kitchen is sufifciently well equpped that one could. The only negative is that it was hot without the windows open (suprisingly so for a...

This was a fabulous apartment - huge rooms, very luxurious, well equipped, quiet and comfortable. As other reviewers have said, the restaurant downstairs is also excellent and so convenient and friendly. There was a little confusion about checking in after hours but Haley went out of her way to sort it out smoothly and quickly and all was well. We... More
