We attended a wedding evening party at the thistle and it was very well organised, the room was set out so as not to be overcrowded but still with a friendly feel , most of the tables would seat ten people and were far enough from the bar to avoid disturbance, food was available as part of the evening package...

A nice comfortable hotel in the centre of Middlesbrough, just a minute off the A66. Really helpful staff, even though we did arrive in the middle of a fire drill. But it was all very well organised and efficient, and within 5 minutes we were being checked in. Not the biggest car park, but adequate. We were in and out... More

I stayed here for one night on business, and from the minute I checked in until the minute I checked out it was a pleasure. They had a function on, and even though it was really busy I still didn't have to wait long at check in, or at the bar, or in the restaurant. The room was really modern... More

We were greeted by a friendly receptionist who gave booked us in quickly and gave us some added information about the area and a map to assist us.

Middlesborough does not have any decent four star or five star hotels and this is the best of the lot. The Thistle is very central, 5 mins walk from the station and 10 minutes from the University. It is located in an ugly old tower block accessed via a multi storey car park. The Reception is dated, cluttered and tired.... More
