The bar is over priced but nice pub 15 min walk away. Spa facilities basic but unlimited. The room was dusty and uncomfortable but I guess you get put in the grim rooms if you book cheap on late rooms over all friendly staff but needs a clean paint dust and new mattresses.

Stayed here before attending a local event. I was so apprehensive after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. The hotel is dated. Carpets held together with tape.. The rooms again dated but clean.

Just stayed overnight here on a weekend break. Read some reviews and they were not good, however we found every single thing about our stay enjoyable. Lovely room, great dinner and breakfast, friendly staff, and clean all over. There was a wedding reception at night and that made it even better.Well done Sporting Lodge, hope to come again!

The Sporting Lodge is in the countryside outside Middlesbrough and located conveniently for business in the area. It is easy to get to and has lovely grounds with plenty of parking. You will see from the other reviews that it is popular with coach touring parties. On my night the restaurant was packed full with lovely old grannies and grandads... More

Just got back from a 4 night Just Go coach trip and must say really enjoyed the hotel. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. The room was clean and tidy with plenty of hot water. There is a great sport centre on site with a lovely pool.
