I stay in lots of hotels around the country on business and am lucky enough to generally enjoy 4*, but booked the Claireville to bring my son to university at Middlesbrough. I chose it as almost every other hotel in the region was fully booked. I was a bit worried that it only had 2* (thought we might be greeted by cockroaches!!) but was pleasantly surprised by how clean and nice our room - and in fact the whole hotel was.
The gentlemen who greeted us on reception was really helpful and friendly and as other people mentioned, recommended a fabulous restaurant to eat at in nearby Yarm.
The decor is a bit 80s - but everything is really clean and tidy. Our twin bedded room was spacious (with a double and single bed) and the bathroom was a bit 'pink' but spotless.
Breakfast was very good too for this size of hotel - a choice of fruit and cereal and a cooked breakfast and a fast, efficient and friendly service.
I have to say - I have stayed in hotels claiming to be 4* which haven't been as clean and comfortable as the Claireville. My only bad comment is the lack of staff on duty. When we checked in, we rang the bell for ages and finally had to call 'is anyone there!!' before someone appeared. Also, there was no-one serving in the bar. We sat in there for 30 minutes hoping to get a drink (at about 9.30pm) - the TV was on - it was fully lit - but no-one appeared behind the bar - so we ended up having a very early night!!
