I gave 2 points for the George, one for location and one for being pretty clean. It is a very tired run down pub with rooms. The room was very cold, especially with the temps being -3 outside.

We were therefore without access to the bathroom which is also the only bit of the room to get water from. The booklet in the room said the manager would be available if there...

The location is excellent, just across the road from the train station and bus stop. It's an old building, a little quirky. We stayed for 1 night while walking the Cleveland Way and it was just right for what we needed. No frills, basic needs but clean and comfortable, Our room was on the top floor and we did not...

Was booked in for 5 nights, but only stayed 3! Checked in on the Sunday to find that it was a rather down on it's luck pub with a lower class of clientele. Our 1st night was spent listening to very loud karioki which we could hear in our room clearly on the 2nd floor, why does it have to...
