“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Thank you for a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were very comfortable and well presented, Traditional breakfast was lovely and service was excellent. Good location for families as close to the beach and local park. Freindly atmosphere and we would not hesitate to stay here again

Great to find a bolt-hole that's characteristic of the English North and is open virtually all year round. As the other reviewers say: clean, comfortable and accommodating (I gather that they even accept Brummies). Worth the effort of an early rise, to take in the sea air and so best appreciate a fine traditional breakfast.

have stayed here many times as well as many other guesthouses in and around the Roker area.
Everything about the April is 5 star, cleanliness, friendly and accommodating staff, breakfast both in choice and quality, location quiet terrace with ample parking and 2 minutes from the most wonderful beach. Major bus routes easily accessible.
Sounds like we are relations but this is an honest impartial review.

We are a large family group of 4 generations who stay at this delightful family B and B every year over the weekend of the great north run. We are made to feel very welcome and the family are very helpful with our arrangements and in recommending places to go and to eat.
This year the guest house has been updated and decorated to a great standard. We have always found the facilities clean and the new decor is great.
The location is a bonus being within 200m of the beach which is lovely, and walking distance to some lovely eating houses.
We will definitely be returning next year.

Room Tip: All rooms great!

It is a pleasure to read comments from guests who appreciate the positives of our establishment. Returning guests become familiar with both ourselves and the surrounding area. As a family run business we have constantly had the same guests for the Great NORTH run and this is one of the high-lights of our year. Look forward to when the newest member of the family does the run !!!!

Our 8th visit to the April Guest House being our annual trip to watch or take part in the Great North Run.
Welcome as genuine as ever and service top class. Location is excellent as the Guest House is approximately 200 meters from the pier and a superb beach. City centre, Metro train service [to Newcastle] and Stadium Light all within a couple of miles. We have only explored northwards and coast is superb right up to Bamburgh.
The owners who are Sunderland people through and through are rightly proud of the area and are happy to provide advice on places to eat out and where to go sightseeing.
We have already booked for next year and look forward to being well looked after again.
