Compared to last visit lots of issues with room.

My Wife and I stayed at the Sporting Lodge whenever we were in Middlesborough in the past the accommodation and food was of the highest standard.

But sadly it has been let down by the poor standard by the catering side, The evening meal of Mussels, and chicken Kiev left much to be desired. The mussels were Juvenile and should not have been landed let alone presented as a meal. chicken was over cooked and dry not what I expected. Breakfast had been on the hot plate for some time was dry, cold and overcooked not worth the £8.00 + not a good culinary experience.

You pay for what you get!

This is my first time in a sporting lodge inn reception is strange being the entrance for the gym and hotel reception with two desk areas and looks a little bare, looks like it was trying to be something it is not or once was and the theme continued throughout.

Everywhere in the hotel is dated, thick glossed and chipped skirting and door frames, building looks like a old 70s office block, even had old metal window frames in room. Room was basic but clean, bed had terrible mattress, bathroom was too small, but room size was ok, with decent to size, and free no haste wifi in room. The gym was the best hotel gym I've been too (bit like pure gyms but not as good) although equipment aging a little, get the feeling it's a gym first and hotel second. Didn't use pool or sauna. Bar looked great but seating area and restaurant atmospheres are poor. With B&M bargain style fake leather dining chairs which when you sit on means your dining table us nearly under your chin (I'm not small). Meal was very nice I had king prawn starter, and ceased salad for main, which is first time it's never came with chicken probably not my fault for asking, but as I've stayed in hundreds of hotels I didn't think I had too. With a good dinner I thought this would be the case for breakfast but sadly not. Once again back on the sinking seats, limited hot selection with the main items available, and even smaller selection of cold/continental I.e croissant and bread. No fruit, yogurt etc. Hot breakfast was cold, bacon was hard and tough, hash browns burnt and tough, orrange juice was limited and ran out by 8am but the worst has to be the tomato sauce is like vinegar spicy sauce which I would think I would like but it is vile.

Overall my stay was ok for business overnight but hotel is disappointing because it has the possibility to be so much more, it needs a good overhaul and a look at other hotels quality. But for the price I paid it was worth it.

We love coming to the Sporting Lodge.

Exceptional spa facilities and all included in a very reasonable price. Staff throughout are very helpful and friendly, ranging from the reception staff, to spa staff, to bar staff, right through to the hardworking cleaning staff. Where else can you stay in a quality hotel with great free spa access on a Saturday night, for the region of 40 pounds. I don't know of another hotel with all this at that price.
