My husband and I stayed in this hotel 3 nights. The room was spacious, very clean with comfortable bed. Despite being next to the airport, we had no noise and we slept very well. We had iron, hairdryer and very nice, clean towels. The tea and coffee was good quality and was replenished daily. The food very tasty and plentiful. We have only one suggestion to the hotel owner- could you please put mixer tap on the basins because from the hot tap was running nearly boiling water and from cold tap the water was freezing cold. It was very difficult to wash hands under running water. We have enjoyed stay in this hotel and if in area we will use it again.

To be honest, so tired after a long journey, I didn't use the bar or eat there, so you need to reflect that on my review.
Location is at Teeside Airport Perimiter, but no problems with noise. The airport use to be a Canadian WW2 bomber base and remained in RAF ownership until 1964. The history is reflected throughout the premises with Room names, photos , artifacts and a fantastic statue outsde of Andrew Mynarski VC. Look him up on Google, a truly courageous man. If you are a history buff, you will love this place, as it was previously military accommodation, showing it's age.
Not very appealing , outside or inside and needs TLC. The Towel rail/ hot water tap are very hot so take care. To be fair, though the staff were great, and room cheap but I wouldn't go out of my way to book again.

Well, the staff were friendly, the wifi is excellent and the historic stuff is interesting.
Sadly, that's the end of the good bits.
The breakfast was not good with cheap bland ingredients, no fruit or continental type choices. Because of that I didn't bother trying any other meals.
The room was terrible, some highlights were:
Desk with varnish peeling.
Worn out chair.
Damp stain on the wall.
Only 2 plugs in the whole room, one being used for the TV.
No iron or hairdryer.
Undrinkable unbranded cheap coffee.
Shower was either scalding or freezing with a pitiful water flow.
Bathroom panels were hanging off. Where there was sealant in place it was mouldy.
Some indescribable marks on the shower curtain.

A truly awful room, never again!

It's a shame about the room because the staff I came into contact with were great and they are being let down by the physical condition of the place.

A group of 11 of us stayed for one night, with evening meal, breakfast and a conference on site the next day.

I agree with some previous comments re the physical state of the hotel but it is clearly a work in progress; my summation 2-3* hotel accommodation with 4* staff.

Once the renovations are complete this will be a great hotel. Rooms currently are a little hit and miss but most importantly clean and the beds very comfortable.

The staff were simply fantastic, Kim Raynor deserves a special mention. His organisation, attentiveness without suffocation and efficiency were all exceptional! Darren (I hope I've remembered his name correctly) didn't hesitate to come and assist me to open my window, turns out I was just being a whimp, but he was so jolly and sweet about it that I didn't feel quite so stupid.

Our evening meal was great, delicious tomato and basil soup or salmon fish-cake were a couple of the starters on offer, vegetarian Thai curry, poached salmon and chicken were some of the mains, served with ample fresh vegetables. Dessert offered a really good bread and butter pudding and cheesecake. I don't think there was much waste on collected plates! Breakfast was a serve yourself affair with a good array of foods on offer; you wouldn't go hungry here!
