“GREAT STAY”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

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.

Reviewed 25 April 2012

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

Stopped at the Roker View for one night - Saturday - in April. Easy to find and very welcoming - comfy room with ensuite shower room and flat screen tv. Parking was fine - no car park but plenty of space in surrounding streets. We'd booked the four poster and were a bit disappointed that is was a ground floor room with a view of the back yard - but to be fair we never asked about the view when we booked so can't really complain - just assumed it would be the best room in the B&B. Roker View is very close to Roker beach - nice for a walk, there is a pub next door but we didn't hear any noise from it at all - convenient for a quick drink. Several other pubs close by. Easy to get into Sunderland - bus stop 200m from the B&B, or we walked back - only took about 25 minutes. Bed very comfortable and the best thing was the breakfast - large portion nicely cooked - cereals, full English including veggie sausage, and toast. Prompt, friendly service. Overall I'd recommend Roker View - cheapish, quiet and clean - that's really all you want.
