“Good value”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

An interesting hotel which did the job for our one night stay.
Not a bad price but that didn't include breakfast and after eating there in the evening, we decided not to have the breakfast. My burger and chips were very mediocre.
It was lovely to have a bath and shower and the room was warm and comfortable. The furniture needs some tlc and the thing we found most annoying was that there was only ONE double socket in the whole of the room, once the TV and kettle were plugged in that was it! Nowhere to plug in our phone chargers/laptop etc.
Staff on check out were brisk and didn't ask how we enjoyed our stay either, just asked if we were checking out, when we replied we were, she check we didn't owe anything and just said 'thank you'. Sounds nit picking I know, but the staff at the Holiday Inn Express the night before were much friendlier.

This is the first time I have been to this hotel, but it won't be the last. Although I was in room 13, it was a nice large room with a big marble bathroom and the first thing I saw from my window was the Maple Leaf Flag flying in the breeze. The hotel was the sergeants mess during the war for the Canadian Air force and has many photos and momentos of its past including a bronze statue of an airman at the front of the hotel - very impressive!
We had the ballroom for our event - a large well lit room with space for tables for the carvery. We had a large piece of roast beef and also a roast gammon with amazing crackling - many went back for seconds. The staff were really helpful and they had laid on a handpull for the occasion.
Plenty of free parking and easy access for equipment
It is next to Tees Valley airport, but I had a good nights sleep - maybe the planes don't fly at night.
The hotel was full, but facilities are spacious and there was no waiting at breakfast.
Definitely a little gem nand well worth a visit.

Room Tip: I had room 13, which is unusual, but it faced the front, with a good view of the flags and statue

Stayed for three nights. Great place for the price. Not often you get the chance to stay in officers quarters! Great heritage and history too with some lovely stories of past occupants and their return every year. Don't be put off with it being next to an airport. It's not Gatwick! And you might get a surprise of some of the aircraft taking off from there!

I really struggled to get a room at a week's notice at Traveldodge-type rates; but the St George Hotel proved to be more than satisfactory at £39 room only.

I was sadly a bit too excited to have a bedroom right in front of the main entrance to an airport, but, this being Teeside, I think I saw two microlights take off in the time I was there (okay, they were BAe 146-sized Whisper Jets, but no 757s!)

Room was comfortable. Bath (which I always prefer to a shower) and a good sized TV; however, it was placed so far from the bed that the volume had to be up high to hear it - I hope that didn't upset any neighbouring guests - but as the hotel seemed pretty quiet I doubt it.

Generally, condition was clean and tidy and there's a decent wall-mounted iron and board - handy if you've got an interview the next day.

I don't think I'll be up in the Teeside area again but it was a reasonable place to stay.

Receptionist's welcome was adequate, if not overly bothered to see me.

Left london in the afternoon to drive to Edinburgh and were looking for a cheap and cheerful hotel enroute for a night halt. This was 2 interconnected rooms for £45 for the three of us ! Lovely old fashioned rooms. More than adequate for a night halt. The hotel was a bit difficult to find though as our GPS just wouldn't pick up the right turns ! Can be cumbersome to get by public transport, but perfect if u are looking for a base in that area for a longer driving break to explore the Yorkshire moors n dales ! Lovely clean rooms, hot shower and a bit of character.......unlike the chain hotels. Very popular with coach groups ! We had dinner by the time we drove in, which was just as well as restaurant was packed and no eating options near by, so it could be a problem if u are very hungry or have small children. Heart, hot b/fast served in the morning ! Great value for money !

We paid £35 for a double room which was spacious and spotlessly clean. The receptionist was efficient, friendly and the night porter happy to open the bar for us at gone midnight and even told us some great life stories ! A really fab hotel - great value

I orginized the works summer BBq and deceided to hold it at this hotel as the ballroom had lovely gardens attached. The evening was vey enjoyable and all the feed back was great.
The staff could not do enough for us going that extra mile. We also use the resident DJ who was very good there was no empty space on the dance floor once the disco started.
The ballroom is a lovely big room for any event.
A number of guests also stayed over as this was very reasonable the rooms were nice and clean and breakfast was good offering everthing you needed.
We are now looking forward to organizing our next event with them.
