I have stayed at this hotel very regularly since the tail end of its refurbishment (over 3 months in the past year) and am loathe to write a review as I don't want too many people to know about it. This hotel is my option of choice when working in the area (even putting up with the city drive to get to Sunderland).
My most recent stay has surpassed my previous experience. I had a few little problems and after talking, not complaining, to the hotel about them they were immediately rectified and any other issues were pre-empted the staff are all down to earth but very friendly and make you feel at home but if you want to be left in peace that will happen, special mention to front of house.Hotel still looks spotless and rooms are well maintained and housekeeping do a great job.
I have to round up on Tripadvisor, which isn't a complaint but I wish I could award 4.6. The reason the Hotel drop the points is that that and food isn't perfect, it's not bad, it's just that ingredients are sometimes missed of the plate, and the food service area does not seem to fully commit to the attitude that the rest of the hotel has and does not realise that regulars are just looking for a place as close to home from home as possible. overall I minor point i can put up with in the main.
Overall a hotel you want to come back to again and again
