Room was comfortable and I was pleasantly surprised by the decor. I was in 101 & also had patio doors opening up onto the gardens. Food was disappointing, I only ate breakfast here. They need to invest in decent toasters as warm bread is not my idea of toast! WiFi was hit and miss but for 1 night it was... More

I visited this hotel many years ago and not much has changed. The rooms are basic and clean. They have free Internet but it seems to have a limited bandwidth which makes things very frustrating when combined with the phone signal being almost impossible to get. The bar serves food but the restaurant is not very warm.

Reception staff were very friendly and helpful. If you pay for breakfast during check in it is only £5. Room was a good size, although a little cosmetic maintanence wouldn't go a stray. I had forgot shower gel so was please to find that they had provided it. Thought i would opt for a shower as the bath was rusty.... More

Been a couple of times and the hotel is good value but is really tired and tatty. The staff are poorly trained and are not focused. Restaurant is very expensive based on the hotel and food average. Breakfast good but again staff not attentive and forever asking for coffee

Just had a mini break with national coaches. Great hotel staff pleasant. Room was big and bed comfatable. Food was OK. Alcoholic drinks a little pricey but overall nice stay. Abit out of the way if you wanted to view sites. But we were only staying for 1 night so that didn't bother us. Was away for my birthday. Visited... More

I stayed here because I was visiting Middlesbrough. This hotel is very tired and in need of a refit. The bed was uncomfortable. To be fair it was cheap and you do get what you pay for but I wouldn't recommend staying here.

We attended a wedding at Sporting Lodge which in all fairness was a good day...however a catalogue of failures by the hotel was exposed at the evening party of the wedding. Over an hour after a hot buffet was served hot apparatus was left unattended...my 5 year old daughter tripped over a wire for a soup kettle containing hot gravy... More
