The Mayfield is a small guest house just two minutes walk from the beach at Seaburn. I don't normally stay in guest houses, but I couldn't fault this place at all. The room I stayed in was a twin room with an en-suite bathroom. Both rooms were spotless. The bed (I only used one) was very comfortable, and there was a nice modern flatscreen TV with a huge host of channels. The bathroom had both a bath and a shower mounted above it, and was clean and well-appointed. Breakfast was included in the price and was absolutely delicious, and service was both polite and discreet.
I was staying here as I was visiting Sunderland. Seaburn is only a couple of stops on the metro, or a short bus / taxi / car journey. Seaburn itself is at the end of the C2C route, and the beach is beautfully clean. There's probably not that much to do in Seaburn itself once you've walked up and down the seafront and watched the sea a bit, but it's a perfectly good base to explore the region from, and the Mayfield has it's own parking.
I paid £35 per night here. It's worth pointing out that you will often pay more than this to stay at the frankly disgusting and worn-out Travelodge in central Sunderland, and way more for the Seaburn Marriott which is also showing it's age (I've stayed in both). I'm a frequent traveller to Sunderland, and I know where I'll be staying next time I'm back there.
