We stayed at the Spa Hotel while walking the Cleveland Way. As a hotel it's quite difficult to describe. The lcation is excellent, a short climb from the sea front with excellent views. The hotel itself has a Victorian building at it's core, which I suspect was originally a spa bath. Around this Victorian core an extension has been built to three sides. I would guess the extension is 30 to 40 years old, was constructed at low cost and has not really been adequately manitained since.
In general the service was adequate, though one had the sense that the staff were somewhat demoralised. The one incident of noticeably poor service was when we ordered dinner and had to wait around 40 minutes for it to arrive.
The rooms were generally ok, though they could have done with refurbishment. However getting to the rooms required walking around three sides of a function room through dingy corridors, all in urgent need of redecoration.
Breakfast was self service and generally adequate.
My impression is that this hotel could be very good given better management. However, at the price, which was very low, perhaps one shouldn't expect too much.
