Just back from a 6 day trip on business in Middlesbrough and stayed at the Thistle hotel. It was a lovely, clean & friendly hotel. Breakfast was excellent and location was superb for the town centre. I would certainly use this hotel again and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

Very nice hotel in the heart of the city. Have a lovely restaurant on the premise. About a five minute walk to the train centre and five minute walk to the football stadium (soccer). Also it has a great gym and swimming pool on the main level. Can be noisy on the side to the road.
