“Excellent hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

Always a cheery welcome and hearty breakfast. You won't be disappointed with the hospitality or accommodation; Tony has it sorted! Excellent pub next door, but no noise. The Tavistock Italia Retro Restaurant is only across the road and offers good food at reasonable prices. Looking forward to next years visit!

Yet another great stay at Tony's. We stay every year for the Great North Run as it is not in Newcastle but handy to transport. Tony is very accommodating and a great host - warm welcome, good food, clean beds, reasonable price - what more could you ask for? Will be back next year.

We chose to stay at Roker View after reading reviews and we wasn't disappointed. The room we stayed in with the four poster bed was so comfy and the room was clean and warm. The breakfast was excellent, Tony looked after us so well and we will be going back again soon.

I'm writing this while still staying in the guest house,my stay thus far has been fantastic,for the price I cannot complain,the room is good,nice and clean,I've slept like a log all week and no bad back from the bed unlike my own at home!. The breakfast is great and is served early which suits me for work. If I'm ever working in the area again I will not hesitate about booking again... Thank you for a great stay.

A commendation from two seventy plus year olds, we have been visiting this area for well over 50 years on a regular basis staying in a variety of accommodation types. This year due to the nature of our stay we chose a guest house, 'the Roker View', a very wise choice as it turned out. Tony 'mine host' could not have looked after us better, going that extra mile in our opinion for the duration of our 5 night stay. We had the ground floor room thus avoiding any stairs, it was very comfortable and roomy with no noise at all from the adjoining hostelry, breakfast was superb as was the service. Tony and Karen deserve to prosper in this venture, adding those extra touches which make your stay all the more pleasant, 'a true North East welcome. A home from home for us and highly recommended, keep up the good work Albert and Cynthia, Dudley West Midlands.

Room Tip: For romantics choose room 1 with 4 posterbed and fridge, ideal for keeping the champagne in.

Stayed here from Fri 30th Aug to Mon 2nd Sept 2013. We were very late arriving on the Friday so our relatives had been to collect the keys from Tony so that we had no problems getting which all went without a hitch.
We stayed in Room 1 on the ground floor, nice sized with a four poster bed and shower ensuite.
On Saturday morning we were up early and Tony provided us with a huge breakfast, everything you could possibly want. If you leave here hungry its your fault !!
The B&B is perfectly located, in a nice quiet street, even though its next door to a pub we heard no noise at all. Handy cash machine and shop over the road, and the added bonus of free WiFi.
Would recommend this B&B to family and friends with no hesitation and would definately stay again.

Room Tip: Room 1 is on the ground floor with no other guest rooms next to it and right next door to the dining...
