This is an economically priced hotel providing a truly Home from Home service. I stayed for three nights this week and thoroughly enjoyed the experience from the moment of my arrival...rather late in the evening until breakfast on my departure day. Admittedly, on first acquaintance the hotel appears rather 'tired', but major refurbishments are planned and are progressing. However, don't... More

A last minute hitch in plans took us to the Parkwood for a family lunch on Mothers Day. It could not have turned out better! The hotel is discreetly tucked away in Hartburn village and is obviously being revamped, but we were given a warm welcome on a chilly day. We were slightly early for our table but the pleasant...

We had a lovely Valentine dinner last night. The ambiance was very appealing with pink and red balloons with red roses and pink chocolate hearts on the table. The service was very good and the meal was delicious. This was very good value as the price per couple included a bottle of wine. We shall return for more evening meals.

This hotel has been through difficult times but is now under new management and things have noticeably improved. Had a meal there this evening, food was good as was the service. Hope the "locals" will support it and not loose it - the Parkwood Hotel is still blissfully free from musac and television screens!

Went there with family and food was good and reasonably priced. Only downside was the Thai Veg curry was far too hot, will pick something else next time. Rest of food very good, the xmas dinner was good value for money.

I did wonder about this hotel considering the reviews but I called the hotel and was informed there had been some management changes and the hotel was going through an upgrade. The location was perfect or me so I gave it a go. With very friendly staff and lovely food I was pleasantly surprised. There was no sign of the... More

we stayed here recently just after a management change over, considering previous comments, I can confirm the place was clean, tidy and very well presented. You can tell money is being spent on improving the building as a man had been there over the 2 days we were there doing loads of work. The new landlady said a lot of... More

A word of advice. Don't use this p[lace. It is filthy, it smells awful, it's falling down , it's expensive and the staff look like they have just walked off the set of the Walking Dead. How on earth this place is allowed to serve food is beyond me. Take a trip to the toilets at your peril. A lovely... More

So sorry for a bad review but I feel I need to be honest about my experience. I had chosen this place given its proximity to Stockton. Arrived and had to go into the pub to check-in. I wasn't really expecting this. No front desk or reception staff. Broken tiles along the main entrance. Pub/bar smelled and had a sticky... More

Went with parents and two small children, staff very welcoming, looked after us all, food was good value for money. Cannot fault the warmness and attention of staff. I lived in the area for 18 years and had never visted before, will go back again.
