Christie & Co instructed to market Sunderland’s much-loved Roker Hotel

Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co is delighted to bring to market, The Roker Hotel, one of longest standing and most loved hotels in Sunderland.

Roker Hotel

Dating back 170 years, the Roker Hotel exudes Victorian grandeur and enjoys a seafront position with uninterrupted views overlooking the North Sea, Roker Beach and Roker Pier.

The site has been operated by Tavistock Hospitality under the Best Western Hotels Premier Collection for the past 20 years ago and has become a highly regarded and successful hotel. The business has established several income drivers, including 43 en suite guestrooms, a spacious and varied food & beverage offering comprising a restaurant, bar and tearoom, as well as a large function suite which is a popular choice for weddings and events.

The property also features an excellent al-fresco patio with superb coastal views and two separate buildings to the rear which will be vacated upon a sale.

The hotel has come to the market to allow the company to focus on other business interests, presenting a fantastic opportunity for a new owner to acquire a profitable seaside hotel close to Sunderland’s many tourist attractions, including the award winning Seaburn and Roker beaches, The Stack Entertainment complex, Marine Activities Centre, Roker Park, Watch House Museum, The National Glass Centre and The Anglo-Saxon St Peter’s Church.

Nicola Foster-Hird, Managing Director at Tavistock Hospitality Limited comments, “Tavistock as a company has changed dramatically over the last few years, as such , we’ve decided now is the right time to scale down and concentrate more on the smaller scale sites that we have. It really has been a fantastic 20 years at The Roker and the hotel has become part of the family almost, with some amazing memories and lifelong friends made on the way. It’s going to be a sad day for us when we leave, but it’s time now for someone else to take the reins, and enjoy it as much as we have!”

David Lee, Regional Director – Hotels at Christie & Co is handling the sale and comments, “The Roker Hotel is one of the most famous hotels in the area, there have been many high profile events and evenings held at The Roker over the years. It is a hotel which offers something for everybody and we do expect significant interest.”
