A very cosy tavern rather than a hotel with lots of character (log fires) and very attentive staff. Rooms are comfortable, bed very comfortable with tea coffee, telly. The only downers were my mother had to change rooms twice due to minor faults i.e. radiator not working. Our room 217 was fine except the shower pressure was terrible. The rest of our party had no problems. The food and drink were good value and tasty, service was good. Especially the male staff member who recovered my mothers nightie from her first room at midnight. The breakfast room was a bit cold, however it was freezing outside, the standard of food was first class. Overall a nice overnight stopping point would recommend. Booking in and checkout were a breeze, parking readily available and located in a beautiful spot with breathtaking views of the bridge and river. Overall very happy with the stay, while it's full of character it needs a bit of minor maintenance, cracked window panes etc. But this is minor, would definitely return. Very enjoyable, credit to the staff who were excellent. Collapse

On reviewing this Hotel i want to be very fair both to future Guests and to the Staff of the Hotel who were all exemplary and deserve more support from the Owners who need to spend more money on the place. I have given a 4 star rating for the Staff and to the undoubted potential of this Hotels future. Firstly, i would like to praise all of the Staff who work here as they made our stay worthwhile and apologies also to the lovely receptionist who had to deal with our concerns over our bill when we were leaving. We had been quoted a price before our stay that included the NYE Meal and celebrations. It was a good deal and hence the reason for our stay, however, the full details of this hadn't been passed on to the receptionist and despite her embarrassment she dealt with the mix up excellently and we were charged the correct price as quoted. Sorry we didn't catch her name but many thanks for your understanding. From the above i'm sure that Staff will now know which Customers we were and it is for all of those members of Staff that i give a very considered review of our actual stay and will not go into any real detail of any concerns we had as we did this as we left. I'll mark each area out of 10 Location - 10 (excellent location by the River and especially if you love Ancient and Roman History) Staff - 10 always attentive and helpful Food - 9 - good Quality Ballroom and Entertainment - 10 Accomodation- in Annexe Bedroom - 8 spacious and great location but shame Balcony was temporarily out of bounds View from room - 10 Bed - 5 Bathroom - 2 All in all we enjoyed our stay but felt we had got the good deal we got because of the poor bathroom and because the Hotel is in transition at the moment. Message to Owners I want to be positive and give a message to the Owners as ALL feedback is ultimately positive if acted on, spend a bit of money on the Bathroom facilites in the Annexe (as other reviews appear to show the same problems with plumbing in most rooms in the Annexe for the last 12 months or more!) and sort out the Bed. In my opinion the problems with Showers appears to be down to Hot Water Pressure. Would i stay again - yes but only if the money is spent on bathrooms in Annexe or we stay in the Main building which seems to get good reviews and if we have the same Staff - well done to all Staff Members 10/10 Collapse

The building dates back to 1650 ish and sits at the side of the River Tees. The village is located on an original Roman fortified stronghold and the bridge dates back to 267AD. Buildings which house the Hotel rooms, restaurant, Ballroom, bar and lounge/breakfast area. Quiet and warm, spacious rooms with free wi-fi 32" TV, telephone and tea/coffee making facilities. A relaxing stay with super staff and management. Dogs on lead welcome. Great for coupes or families. The food is `goumet standard` whether breakfast or main meals. We will return without a doubt. It does not have the `modern` look or feel like Premier Inn.Lodges but has great appeal for an authentic and realistic 17th century hotel. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. WITH RICHMOND, BARNARD CASTLE AND OTHER PLACES OF INTEREST NEARBY, YOU WILL NOT WANT FOR PLACES TO GO AND EXPLORE. Collapse

Stayed 1 night with husband and it was 1 night too long. Upon arrival we waded through people stood in entrance way smoking. Given our room 216 promptly. It was cold on arrival with no extra heater in room, 2 single beds pushed together, wallpaper coming off the walls with what looked like damp in the corner. It just looked like a 1980's Blackpool B&B and I didnt even want to stay the night but we did. Lots of road traffic throughout the night, very thin walls to the point you could actually hear the words of the neighbours' conversation. To top it off the next morning the shower was ice cold and no matter how much we tried it wouldnt work but I thought to no avail I'll have a quick bath until I turned the taps on to which they coughed and spluttered for a few minutes and lets just say if I was hoping for a bath I was wrong - would have taken a day to get a minimal depth in the bath. There was a leaf stuck in the basin sink!! To sum it up I wouldnt come back if they offered me it free. We did give this feedback on checkout to which they said a manager would call but looking at other reviews I wont hold my breath. Oh totally forgot about the shambles breakfast! Arrived 8am to be told chef hadnt turned in for work yet he was running late so there would be a daily!!!! Fawlty Towers eat your heart out. When we did get breakfast it was awful - grease laying on top of fried egg, uncooked black pudding and fatty cheap bacon. I nearly run to get out of the place. We have visited many hotels this year (Walworth Castle was same price and it was pure luxury compared to this). I do always try to see the small positives in a place as constructive criticism is more useful but on this occasion I just cant and I was appalled to be honest. Collapse
