“Excellent Stay - Would recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Visited the Croft for a wedding staying over on Friday & Saturday Night.

Good quick check-in.

We'd asked for a room with a 3rd bed and were given a massive room with a hugh bed and a 3rd bed. Nice & clean as well.

Went into the restaurant for a meal with other quests staying over for the wedding (about 25 of us). The service was excellent and the food quality & quantity were also very good.

Drinks prices were also quite reasonable for hotel prices. The staff were very friendly and helpful all weekend.

The reception, bar and restaurant area has clealy been decorated and it is modern whilst still holding onto some of the original features (for instance the wooden ceiling beams).

Breakfast on both mornings was also very good with various cereals, fruit juices, fruit, tea, coffee and also croissants. You could also choose cooked items from a menu and again the quality was good.

The hotel is on one side of a bridge that crosse the river Tees and it is a really nice setting.

Then onto the wedding itself. The ceremony was in a grand room which has recently been renovated/decorated and was just perfect.

Drinks & Canapes were then served in the bar area whilst the room was set up for the wedding breakfast (approx 70 people). The food quality & quantity was again excellent (& hot) and the service just as good. The kids were also taken care of with garlic bread, chicken goujons/chips & ice cream!

For the evening do a partition was opened which doubled the size of the room and included the dance floor and another bar. The buffet was good and contained a nice mix of hot & cold food.

All in all an excellent venue for a wedding or just a night or 2 away and I would thoroughly recommend.

Stayed for New Year celebraitions,not the best venue ive done in the last few years.The food was okay but nothing special,staff were brilliant and worked there socks off I agree about the beer pretty poor,the rooms were spacious everything worked but the bed was the worst ive ever slept in.The evening festivities seemed to be missing something poor music choice from the DJ could account for a lot of it.Breakfast in the morning some of our friends waited 40 mins for food when people who came in after them were served. Overall not the best.

Went here for New Years Eve, very disappointed with the evening, food was good but no coffee served after the meal and cheese and biscuits was the alternative to chocolate desert. Agree with previous comment regarding the DJ not very good at all. Room ok nothing special but the shower was useless just a trickle worst shower I have ever experienced. Staff did seem to be trying hard but wont be booking for next NYE.

Went for the New Year Dinner Dance. Room was ok but no great effort to spruce it up. Food ok but portions a little on miserly size. DJ was useless , using the occasion to also broadcast his Radio station and play music no one liked or danced to. Two hand pulls one ok the other was off Ale , tasted if vinegar. Overall poor standard.

We stayed 3 nights over the Christmas holiday and found the hotel very comfortable with well appointed bedrooms and lovely bathrooms. All the staff we met were friendly and efficient. We enjoyed the breakfasts, the quality of the cooked food was good. The hotel was well cared for, nicely decorated and welcoming.
