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. I don't look for faults in hotels, but as soon as I walked into the bathroom I saw at least 5 hairs including pubic in the corner. This totally appalled me. My... More

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

I had anticipated spending a weekend in Middlesbrough at a DOCTOR WHO convention at this very spick and span hotel tucked away off Middlesbrough's Corporation Street - sadly on my arrival from London I found the event cancelled.

A good hotel with great friendly staff. Very easy to find and a good location if you need to travel. located smack bang in the city centre but without the noise. Rooms are clean and of a good standard. Only had breakfast each day but that was very nice!

Enjoyed out stay and the staff were lovely. I called the night before and asked for a quiet room and air conditioning. The lady on the phone was very accommodating. I would lightly recommend this hotel. A gold star for this hotel. We had a fabulous view of the Teesside port

The hotel is convenient for most places in central MIddlesbrough. Staff - from those at reception to the ones in the bar and restaurant - were all very friendly and helpful. Only minor down side was that the rooms were quite small but they weren't tiny. Overall a decent, good value hotel
