Had four nights B&B here over August bank holiday, and had dinner here most nights too. A really good place to stay and to eat. Nicely laid-back, not poncey or pretentious, yet has high standards and is really keen and motivated to do a good job. Great food menu. The wonderfully pleasant, friendly and helpful staff are a massive bonus. Will definitely return.

We went for a weekend in September. The rooms were clean and well decorated with all the usual (tea coffee,t/v, etc ) included. The beds were very comfortable and we both had a good nights sleep. Breakfast in the morning was a selection of cereal, fresh fruit ,tea and coffee, there was then a choice of freshly cooked breakfasts, which makes a change from buffet style cooked food. The food at night was very good and the portions huge so my advice is don't eat a starter go straight for the main. The barman/receptionist/handy man Justine must be the worlds most helpful man. He couldn't do enough for us and was a real credit to the hotel. You may have noticed that I have not given 5 stars , well its just that I feel that certain areas of the hotel are a bit dated . The bar area perhaps needs a update and a lick of paint , and the day room upstairs needs a good makeover. I may be nit picking and others might not agree with me but its the attention to small detail that makes that little difference. Would go again but diet for a week before.We went to high force on Saturday (englands highest waterfall) It is a long walk from the hotel I advise you drive there and take the footpath to the falls.

Dear simon w,
Justian will be delighted to read your kind comments about the great service he provides. I'm really lucky to have such great dedicated staff. You're right to notice that certain details have not been attended to; they're getting smaller and fewer however as we continue to work hard to make this an even better place to have a relaxing stay.
Thanks for the great review!
Regards,
Dave

It's not 5 star, it's not The Ritz, some of the plumbing is a bit antiquated but it's a great place to stay! This was our 4th visit, but the first in 2 years and we really have no complaints. The room was tastefully decorated and clean, the bed comfortable. The shower was tempremental and lacked pressure but what the heck! Locally sourced food was delicious and well presented and cask ales in fine condition. Above all, the staff are really friendly and helpful.
The hotel has made big strides at refurbishment over the years. They may not be there just yet but they're not far off. Recommended!!

Dear horsfif,
Thanks for the encouragement! We're getting ready for another round of improvements this winter but I'm afraid that pumped showers are beyond our remit just now. Thanks also for the recommendation. Hope to see you again soon!

Dave

Have visited the hotel over the years and always find it a great place to stay.
The breakfast buffet is well stocked with quality provisions and the cooked breakfast boasts local produce.
A shame very slow internet in the village and poor mobile phone coverage but this is not the hotels fault.
Over all a great place to stay.

We stayed for two nights over the August Bank Holiday weekend, and first impressions were that the hotel has seen better days. The rooms are furnished with what I remember from my childhood, "austerity" type drawers and wardrobe which hail from the post war period. The decor in the en suite had paper coming away from the ceiling and the sealant around the bath had an amount of black mould on it. The bed was moderately comfortable, I've had worse, but also had far better. The evening meals on offer are basically traditional "pub fayre" and are ok, but nothing to rave over. Breakfast is of the buffet self serve for cereals and fruit juice, with a menu for eggs, in any guise with toast, or full English or a simple bacon or sausage sandwich, whatever the choice, it's £10.
On the plus side what the hotel lacks, is made up for by very positive, and friendly staff. The cask ales are also of excellent condition, with a choice of three, along with a number of other beers and cider.

Dear Aweighandappy,
Thanks for taking the time to review us. You're right the hotel has seen better days but we're definitely winning the battle to make it a really great place to stay. There are a few little ragged edges in the room you stayed in but we love the furniture! Its sturdy dark wood, old fashioned but in keeping with the hotel we feel.
We are under no illusions that value is a factor in everyones perception of quality: we're sorry that we are now charging Booking .com customers for breakfast but it is now a fact that people no longer use such websites to book late deals that hotels would like to sell off cheap, but use them for all bookings. It is essential to have a presence on these websites so we offer fantastic late deals on them ( which we will match over the phone and include breakfast) but any bookings made further into the future will be at close to full rate (as you paid). As a small hotel, their commisions are very large so we must recoup by charging for breakfast. Full choice from our lavish buffet plus full cooked breakfast is £10.00 and we're confident that its great value. All of our food is cooked from high quality local ingredients, it could be described as "pub fayre" but that wouldn't take into account the quality and love devoted to it.
It's great that you appreciated the team of fantastic conscientious staff that we have here who are all working hard to maintain and improve the standards and value for money that we offer.
Regards,
Dave

We received a friendly and helpful welcome from Sally. It was refreshing to meet a member of staff keen to share local knowledge. The food was very good, fresh local produce and fairly priced. All staff were polite and pleasant and made us all, including our dog, feel very welcome. Middleton is a picturesque village with several good cafes. Next time we visit we will return to the Teesdale Hotel.
