Sunderland’s Hilton Garden Inn offers everything you need for a perfect break.
Here’s what makes the 3-star hotel such a great destination…
What’s it like? Just a corner kick from Sunderland’s Stadium of Light football ground so ideal for away fans looking to make a weekend of it. Also great for families exploring the North East with the lovely clean sands of Roker and Seaburn nearby and an aquatic and fitness centre with an Olympic-size pool next door. The four-floor modern hotel has a huge lobby, smart bar and restaurant run by super friendly staff.
Rooms any good? Everything you need for a perfect break, flat-screen TV, large comfy bed, tea and coffee maker, iron and ironing board, air con, excellent easy-to-use shower and toiletries.
Eat here or grab a pizza? Why go out when you have such a wide choice of tasty dishes such as bangers and mash for £12, a half roast chicken for £16, steaks and veggie dishes in relaxing surroundings. Breakfast is also a treat, including healthy granola, fruit, yoghurts or a full English and pastries. Great coffee and you’ll find it difficult to walk past the tempting waffle maker.
