Roker View Guest House
Ranked #7 of 16 Sunderland B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 13, 2013

I came to Sunderland last march and needed a place to stay, came across the Roker View Guest House and ended up staying till febuaray 2013. I found the guest house to have a great location for walking into town, football and seafront and handy for public transport. The Landlord is a chef by trade so I always enjoyed a great breakfast each morning and he couldn't do enough for me. Home away from Home.

Room Tip: All good value for money

Stayed here whilst visiting family in August. Had family room at the top of the house, as our children are teenagers a larger sized room would have been beneficial. Breakfast was adequate. Host was friendly . This B&B offers good value for money, no frills accomodation.

We very much enjoyed our stay at Roker View and would recommend booking especially if you require accomodation for The Great Run, only a short distance from the Metro and in a very nice area close to the sea, the rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast fine and filling.
Highly recommended.

We travelled up from Bristol for the Air show.
The room was very competitively priced and we stayed in the top room which had a sea view.
Tony was very friendly and informative and gave us lots of info regarding our forthcoming C2C trip. He was always on hand for advice!
Breakfast was very good and facilities were clean and suited our needs.
Brilliant loacation as just a few yards to cycle through to the sea front.
Would recommend this to my friends and would definately stay here again.

Room Tip: The top room has a sea view - but only choose if you are fit enough to climb all the stairs :)

I stayed at this B&B for 3 nights and had a really good experience. The room was well furnished, well-equipped, very clean and comfortable. As my room was at the top of the house I had a good view of the surrounding area with a glimpse of the sea! I slept extremely well each night which is a measure for me of how comfortable I felt. The range of breakfast choices was extensive with juice, yoghurt and cereal followed by any combination of cooked items plus toast, coffee or tea. The landlord Tony was friendly and helpful. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone who wants a good priced, comfortable, happy stay in wonderful Sunderland!

Room Tip: I looked at the ground floor room which had a four-poster and was en-suite and room 6 which had a go...

From the outset,The owner,Tony, was friendly and approachable. He gave excellent knowledge of where to go to eat and drink.The room was warm and comfortable and cleaned to a high standard.Tucked away from the main road kept things quiet for a great nights sleep.
The breakfast was well cooked and ample.
Definately worth a stay anytime. I will be back again.

One night stay at this guesthouse found through Tripadvisor reviews. Comfortable guesthouse and ensuite room was cosy. Room adequate for my needs and I got the sea view that I had requested. Breakfast room bright and airy and breakfast food choices acceptable. On departure owner was insistent that I leave before the 10.30am checkout time of which I did not need a reminder.

Room Tip: Room #6 gives a great sea view
