Made a mistake with the room but was soon rectified. Room was clean and comfortable with nice extras, would of been nice to have a better view. Used the bar in the evening which was really nice, beautiful and relaxing to sit on the terrace overlooking the sea. Food was excellent and all staff were friendly and helpful . Would definitely come back again

Really nice hotel with a lovely tearoom and gin bar. Food was delicious in the bar and the cooked breakfast was lovely although the buffet could have been better. Got a free upgrade to an executive room with a sea view which was gorgeous. Our other standard room was small and overlooking the back of a grim building with noisy fans but it was clean and did the job for a one night stay so it was fine but if you want a better experience book an executive room at the front of the building. Staff were helpful and friendly so a very enjoyable stay.

Disappointing Room
Booked last minute and last room left in the hotel which was not by any means cheap for one night. The room was the quite a walk from the reception and I can only describe it as what may have been a cellar in years gone by. It smelt of damp and patches could be seen on the wall where possible treatment had been given. The wardrobe had no handle and the wood was flaking away at the bottom. The bedside cabinets had not been washed down and still had old sticky drink marks on. The extractor fan in the bathroom was really dirty and the shower screen had to be wedged closed as it had a gap at the bottom. This resulted in a very wet bathroom floor. No instructions in room to assist in dialling reception.

Food and bar service
We booked 10 rooms of varying sizes for a 2 day family event. My daughter and her family after travelling some distance were refused food at 9pm. Even though they were residents. A family get together was cut short as the bar closed at 10.30. On the second evening the bar was open a little later but we were 3 minutes late to order snacks at 9pm. This is unacceptable! As residents of a hotel we expected a more flexible approach and friendly service.

Clean hotel shame about the room
We came to Roker Hotel on a 5 day break. Our room was 129 and our first impression was a small room. We found a pack of takeaway sandwiches on the windowsill which we weren't impressed about. You can't hang your coats up unless in the wardrobe where there was 6 hangers and you can't fully open the wardrobe as the bed is there. Having a sea view is wonderful but when a bathroom comes over part of window, there is only one chair as only enough space for that. If its a double room it would of been lots better if 2 chairs so we could both enjoy the view at the window which is where we had to put our coats. Plumbing is very noisy in that room as wnen other rooms are running water we couldn't hear the TV and had to put up the volume and flushing, water running is so noisy. The room is clean and tidy and maid service generally is good.
