“STAY AWAY”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

We had booked this B&B for 2 nights (20/4/,21/4) and when we arrived here we found that this place was in an isolated place and above a dilapidated pub.The pictures shown on their website is misleading. No car park , though they did say when rang to confirm, that there is secure car park. The door security at the pub did mention to us that we shouldnt risk parking the car there as it will be damaged. After 6-7 pm the pub is full and if you want to get to the rooms you will have to walk through the pub and people standing fully drunk in corridors. Sound from the pub is echoed to the bedrooms.We felt that this is NOT A SAFE place to stay and immediately vacated the rooms and left and didnt bother to stay even for another minute. If you are with family DONT BOTHER TO STAY HERE as it is too risky for your family. Dont be fooled by the website and book at this B&B.

Room Tip: The website pictures doesnt do any justice so dont be fooled.

Stayed while at wedding in area and what a surprise awaits behind the doors. Rooms excellent, staff great, good breakfast. Perfect stopover for any traveller has all you need at a decent rate. dont judge the book by the cover this place has changed for the better over the years and the investment is clear to see. Enjoy the welcome.

The Bell is a very welcoming and comfortable pub where we stayed for one night whilst dropping our son off at Sunderland University. The owner came out especially to open up as we arrived an hour earlier than expected. Nothing was too much trouble. We found it quiet and comfy with a fantastic full english breakfast. The owner was friendly, welcoming and very knowledgable about the area. The locals were very friendly and we enjoyed the banter in the evening bar. The room was well decorated with a huge king size bed and en suite and even had a view of the sea.
I am not sure if evening food is available by arrangement.
