“Lovely Guesthouse”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

We recently stayed at The Mowbray Guesthouse in Sunderland for two nights. We stayed in the family room, which had a double bed and two singles. The room was lovely and clean and very spacious. Beds were really comfortable. There's free wifi, which was great for the kids and for my hubby to catch up with work. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, and made you feel at home. Breakfast was very good, plenty of it, and it was hot. There's off road parking aswell, which is unusual for a B&B. We have a lot of family in Sunderland so travel up there quite a lot. We used to stay in Seaburn whenever we went up there, but not anymore. We'll be staying at The Mowbray, as will my parents, sister, son, and anyone else I can recommend it to. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Family room is great, and it overlooks the car park

Very close to town, the people own the place were very welcoming and all round wonderful people and made me feel very at home in what is a very new town to me. The room I was given is very clean and comfy and lots of channels to watch plus it has free wi-fi,
The breakfasts there are always wonderfully cooked and very tasty, plus there is a telly in the dining room with a PS3 to play with if you have some time to kill.
I would highly recommend staying here as its like a home away from home and excellent value for money as well. ^_^

Room Tip: All the room are great!!

My first time in Sunderland and I just booked the Mowbray because of its central location - business trip. I worried about why it was SO reasonably priced and I was therefore very pleasantly surprised by the quality of everything. A lovely host - genuine, friendly person and a clean, large family house - beats the hotel "chains" every time. Good quality, hot (how rare sometimes!) cooked breakfast at the (very early) time I'd requested - served with a smile. The location was superb for my needs and I'd go back there every time. Thanks Alison, a pleasure to meet you.

The Mowbray Guest House is very convenient to stroll to the centre of Sunderland with car parking.
I found the hostess at the Mowbray to be a very welcoming & helpful. My room was very comfortable & clean. 1st time in years I had slept in a single bed but slept like a log.
Room facilities included large flate screen telly & tea/ coffee making facilities.
Full english cooked breakfast was nice & plentiful.
Only downside was not enough coffee!!

My friend and I were visiting family and friends in the area. This is the second time we have stayed in this guest house and the owners are very warm and welcoming. The rooms are warm, clean and comfortable with tea, coffee etc provided. There is an excellent choice for breakfast and whilst they offer the full English they are happy to serve you what you want - I like egg and bacon only for breakfast!!! Alison is very knowledgeable on the area and is happy to advise you on local attractions. This is a must stay guest house and certainly value for money.

Finding somewhere reasonably priced is not difficult in Sunderland, but finding somewhere that combines excellence and value certainly is. The Mowbray Guest House affords a warm welcome from Andrew and Alison upon arrival, and throughout your stay. The en-suite rooms are clean and comfortable. A good night's sleep is guaranteed followed by a hearty, traditional breakfast. These guys know what they are doing. The setting is in a large Victorian town house that has been sympathetically modified without too many bedrooms. Try it, and you will not be disappointed.
