Our Wedding Spaces
The Six Soldiers Suite
Big and beautiful
Our largest suite features crystal chandeliers and tall, arched, statement windows to flood the space with light and love! A self-contained opulent setting with its own private bar and entrance, gives an exclusive feel for you and up to 350 of your guests.
This space adjoins the Six Soldiers Suite, has its own bar, chic cocktail lounge feel and architect John Dobson’s signature skylight period feature. Perfect for intimate events, or as the residing area for the Six Soldiers Suite.
Exposed brickwork, coupled with finery like crystal chandeliers give this relaxed and intimate dining space a super contemporary feel. Available as an evening venue when the tearoom is closed for trade. Having its own bar gives exclusivity for you and your guests when privately hired. With views out across Roker Pier it is also a wonderfully scenic space. A great alternative choice to rebel against the clichés!
Here at the BEST WESTERN Roker Hotel, we’re all about food, food and did we mention food?! Our motto? “A fantastic menu can make a good wedding great!” We think it’s only right that everything you eat on that special day should stimulate all your senses and be a real treat for the taste buds - the cherry on top of your day!
