Bit late sharing this feedback due to the madness of Christmas! I brought my friend Debs for the first time to the hotel and Middlesbrough as we were running in the Great North Run( Sept 14 in Newcastle). She is from the South of England and could not get over how friendly and welcoming the staff were at the hotel.... More

Stayed over this week as was working in the area. Helpful staff, clean room with free WIFI. All to a good standard. Full onsite facilities are open to the guests etc. Food was nicely cooked and promptly served and all staff were attentive.

Great value for money and ideally situated next to the town centre with easy access parking. We were meeting family in... More

We stayed at this hotel 12 months ago for one night. We stayed there again recently and were greeted as if we stayed every week. Samantha on reception welcomed us and completed a questionnaire for one of our disabled guests as previously. The food at the function we attended was well presented and cooked, although the beans could have done... More

Stayed for one night on business in November. Hotel seemed full and I was given a twin room. I was lucky to get a space in the carpark which could do with being bigger. Room was small but did the job, though the bathroom was quite cramped. Disappointed to find that breakfast was a £15 additional fee, especially considering the... More
