I booked into this place for 2 nights as visiting some family up north. I travelled with my husband and two children, 2 and 4. This place is absolutely filthy. Thick dust everywhere, including directly by your face on the lamps. Worn out menus and hotel info by beds. Heavily strained mattresses and carpets. Stains up the walls. Dirty shower... More

Food was tasty and served hot which must have been difficult due to the large numbers. Disco was really good and tribute act had everyone dancing. Some of the drinks, especially spirits were expensive. The hotel bar area was smart, clean although service was slow. The only issue was the amount of people booked into the dinner as there was...

Visited as a couple. Hotel is worth the money. Free access to spa including pool sauna and steam room. All facilities clean. Hotel room clean and modern. Had food in their restaurant which was expensive and was nothing special. Overall stay however very pleasant and would definitely stay again.

We have stayed here on numerous occasions as we have family that live in the area. But this time our stay was for a tribute night which I have to say was excellent from the clean and refurbished bedroom to the friendly and very helpful staff. The menu on the evening was 3 course and I have to say was... More

I came into Teesside for just one night on business. Arrived a bit late, happy to know they have a 24hr reception. After a long and tiring journey, was happy to find a comfy bed(don't expect superb beds either). But most of the furniture was damaged or broken. And the hot water tap in the bathroom has no mixer, so... More

Stayed 2 nights for a wedding early September, 2015. Staff were very friendly, breakfast was fine both days. However the rooms could definitely do with an update and the corridors could do with a total revamp, the floors appear to be crumbling beneath the carpet. Parking was a bit of an issue as the gym appeared to be very popular.... More
