“Don't believe it!!”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

I have just returned from a 5 night stay at this guest house and wonder whether the reviewer from 11 July actually stayed at the same place!!! yes there are one or two stains on the stair carpet but nothing of any significance - I understand the carpet is due for replacement in the next month anyway.

As far as the room was concerned it was spotless and very comfortable - I feel the unhappy reviewer but have come accompanied with microscope and fine tooth comb.

My main purpose of placing this review is to reassure that despite the negative comments they have nothing to concern themselves about if/when booking here.

Have stayed here a few times and have no complaints. I've stayed in various rooms and have found them clean and comfortable on all visits. Breakfast nice and staff always friendly and accomodating would highly recomend.

Where to start! The decor needed updating as well as the carpet, dirty and stains all up the stairs. The room was a bit of a shock hanging cobwebs, lampshade and roof beam thick with dust (attic room) Coffee stains up door, something up the wall (sick)! Spittle over the bathroom mirror, bathroom very dirty (pubes on the toilet) dust on the skirting and the small fringe dirty inside.
The other room had dirty stain on the ben linen and smelt (damp) also dirty with dust in places, the other party I was with wouldn't even hang her dress in the wardrobe as it smelt damp.
Accommodation found at Premier Inn, well worth the money.

Room Tip: Go to a Premier Inn Or Travel Lodge !!!!!

Reviewed 17 September 2007

I have stayed at April Gueshouse twice and have no complaints about either stay.
It is located about 2 mins from the seaside, on a nice street with ample parking. On both occasions I have travelled in a large group with others using rooms in B&B's along the same road.
The rooms are very clean and beds great after nights out in Sunderland's nightspots!!
Can't fault the service provided as we generally arrive late and never had an issue with any request made.
It's good to see that Britian still has some wonderful B&B's around.

I stayed at the guest house for 1 night. The room I had was beautifully decorated. Tea, coffee and biscuits were provided. The house is along a fairly quiet street and is only 2 minutes walk to the seaside. The owner even waited for me at the metro station to take me to the house, but I missed the station and had to take a taxi. The breakfast is good, English breakfast with cereals and toasts. There are 2 other choices of breakfast available if you do not fancy English breakfast. Overall, I would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Sunderland.

Reviewed 18 November 2005

I booked into the April because of a favourable review on this site, and I wasn't disappointed. I was impressed by the attention to detail in my room, the awareness that guests need to be comfortable and a warm welcome from the owners. Was directed to a good eating place nearby, had a good night's sleep and an excellent breakfast (better than many chain hotels). Thoroughly recommended.
