Nice and clean brilliant sea view
The position of this property is fantastic, although our overall impression was somewhat spoilt because of extreme weather which resulted in leaks from the bay window. We also had a problem with the shower in the en-suite. Having said this we cannot fault the owner's response to these difficulties as she made a personal visit to try and sort out the shower and had previously had remedial work done to the bay window. However, the décor and cleanliness are of a high standard and the beds comfortable
Thank you for the positive comments you have made. I am so glad you enjoyed our decor, cleanliness, comfortable beds and also our 'fantastic' location.
I'm sorry the weather was so dramatic during your stay. We do get some wonderful weather, often at unexpected times of year, and our beach is second to none for walks and traditional seaside activities. In bad weather we often get storm chasers and keen photographers, who love to see the waves lashing high over the lighthouse. These amazing seas can be viewed from the windows of our flats, in the comfort of their living rooms.
I'm sorry there were two repair issues during your stay. Thank you for pointing out our prompt response to these. The shower has had a new thermostatic bar fixed and is now back to normal functionality. We have now discovered that the bay window roof leak was due to some cracks appearing in the outside render above the roof, which allowed water ingress in driving rain. These have been sealed and there has been no sign of water reappearing - even during a subsequent violent downpour.
To reassure future guests, please can I point to our overall five star/10/10 review status on this and other sites. With the best will in the world, all properties will have the occasional repair issue. What matters is the owner's response to these. We feel we are always worth 10/10 for this service. We have been renting these two apartments for approximately 3 years now, and repair requirements have been rare occurrences.
Very Nice Beach Flat
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The flat was very nice, the bathrooms were updated and modern. We would stay here again
Flat 4 is a stunning little apartment with every home comfort! Our three night stay there while visiting friends over New Year was just perfect! It is tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Karen, the landlady has thought of every last detail down to the soft fluffy towels, comfortable beds, toiletries and tea, coffee and biscuits. As an ex Roker resident, I really loved the photographs and old paintings of Roker on all of the walls.
The views of the old pier and the sea from the windows are amazing anyway but my passion is to get outside and onto the beach in the early hours of the morning to photograph the beautiful sunrises over the North East coastline. On the days of our stay i was well rewarded as the skies were truly spectacular over the sea! Some of the dawn watching photographers I spoke to had travelled up from Yorkshire in the wee small hours of 2nd Jan just for the experience and all I had done was hop over the road. Returning to the flat for breakfast was bliss as it was toasty warm and very peaceful.
The whole stay was an absolute delight! In fact if this little gem of an apartment ever goes up for sale I'll be first in the queue to buy it! We loved it.
Thank you for this great review! It is so rewarding to hear that guests have really enjoyed our accommodation. For future guests - this review is for Flat 3. We do not own Flat 4. Regards, Karen
We were fortunate enough to be able to book a 6-night stay on very short notice. Beautiful, comfortable, and inviting accommodation with a wonderful view of the pier, lighthouse, and North Sea from the bay window in the dining area (even better than the photos). Have breakfast and watch the sun rise. Perfect location for exploring the region (Hadrian's Wall, Durham, the beach) though we did stay in two days just to relax and enjoy the apartment. Convenient reserved parking, easy access, everything we needed was supplied; impressive from the moment we arrived. Highly recommend this rental.
Wish I could live here
Fantastic accommodation, wonderful view of sea from sofa, all amenities you require in flat.
Karen the landlady goes above and beyond what you could expect from anyone to ensure you enjoy your time here even posted a birthday card that my mum had mistakenly left behind!
Will definitely return here and highly recommrecommend it.
Intend to try out the adventure centre on the sea front on next visit.
Roker Seafront Apartments are the ideal location to enjoy the spectacular beach and all its attractions. Traditional seaside activities are available in the summer.

If you are visiting the area on business, Roker is under 2 miles from the City Centre, yet offers tranquil, scenic surroundings for your leisure time after work. The apartments allow for self catering, which is increasingly popular with those working away from home. The apartments are brand new for 2015, with all new beds, carpets, curtains, crockery, china and pans.
