Three of us stayed at the Roker Lodge for one night whilst attending the football. 1st impressions of the Lodge were a little disappointing, it's a bit run down looking (the outside) & there was a funny smell at the entrance. Once in the family room though, we all thought it a very big room, clean & warm.
The biggest surprise was the bar, it's an actual pub, it was quite cheap, with great food.
Breakfast is cooked to order (no over cooked buffet here), & was very good :)
Will defo return, if Sunderland ever return to the Premier league!
