Small dilapidated rooms with terrible beds

Posted Jan 3, 2014
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Tents in the garden would be more comfortable than the rooms.
The title says it all. For what this place charged you would expect a reasonable level of comfort. The rooms are really tired, the bathrooms very small ( and just functional) but the beds took the biscuit. The mattresses were so old and worn out it would have been impossible to roll out of the bed once you were in it...you would just roll back into the valley in the middle. Some of the worst nights sleep I have had in a long time, I seriously thought about sleeping on the floor. I got the impression that the staff were tired of receiving and having to deal with complaints about the beds and the rooms. We were given a change of room which was slightly better, but it couldn't really fix the fundamental problems with the property. It is everything the stereotypes suggest about British hotels, without the quaintness and character that might make you forgive some of the faults. A bit like Fawlty Towers without Basil Fawlty to make it funny....NO STARS...spend your money on a tent.

Cons: Worn carpets and smelly bathroom
Location: Isolated/out of town
Tired carpets, smelly bathrooms During my stay one couple complained and were upgraded to a newly carpeted suite Location is isolated, but convenient for local business meeting in Middlesbrough Probably not so good as a holiday location Fully equipped gym and swimming pool

Great facilities at a reasonable price

Posted Jan 27, 2013
Pros: Excellent facilities (swim and gym) and great friendly staff.
Cons: Long waits to get served in the restaurant
Location: Middle of nowhere
Overall my stay at this hotel was a good experience. Staff were excellent, breakfast was excellent and the facilities (wi-fi, gym, pool and sauna) were all very good. On the negative side the hotel is in the middle of nowhere and the service in the restaurant was awful! Long waits for both a table in the first place and then over an hours wait for the food to arrive once ordered. It does have to be said that the food was good when it did arrive however.

Worse than a hostel

Posted Aug 5, 2011
This hotel was more like a hostel, worst hotel I have stayed in for a long time! Room was small, old fashioned, dirty and had no air con. The gym was good quality, lots of locals seemed to use the facility. Food in restaurant was extreamly poor. Lots of pre prepared meals just heated up. The only positive thing about my stay was the staff were extreamly friendly and professional in the restaurant. Would only recommend this hotel if you have a tight budget to stick to! Not a nice experience!!!!!
