I stayed for one night in November. Arrived late but plenty of parking available. I was greeted by the lady on reception who seemed genuinely interested in what kind of day I'd had. After a 6 hour journey that was very pleasant. I stayed in an executive room which had a well kitted out lounge area and plenty of space.... More

Spent the day here at a conference recently and was genuinely very disappointed with everything about this venue. There were about 400 people at the conference, and I expected that a large hotel chain like this would be used to and well-prepared for such an event, but this did not seem to be the case. The conference room was a... More

We stayed one night at this hotel to attend a surprise birthday party. It's very central to the shopping centre and pubs. The MIMA modern art gallery is across the road (Unintentionally hilarious for the awful displays at the time we were there) and there's an impressive fountain nearby. The hotel was modern and comfortable and there was free wifi.... More

Just returned from another weekend break at Thistle Middlesbrough. Every member of staff is so professional and friendly. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had dinner on the Friday night and it was very good. Likewise, breakfast on both mornings was first class. We will definitely be returning to this hotel.

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
