What a stay we had, it was the definition of a last minute night away.


“Afternoon tea – amazing!!

We booked The tontine for afternoon tea, as we have recently had an awful afternoon tea experience in Hartlepool. I have been here before for afternoon tea, so I knew it would be excellent quality, and I wasn’t wrong!!

Might be next to the A19, but this is quality, with staff to match

Can only comment using as a business stopover, on a midweek evening, at a surprisingly low rate given the 5 Star AA rating, but what a find this turned to to be – I honestly didn’t want to leave!

Birthday Breakfast

We’re greeted by the lovely Libby! Nothing was too much trouble for this lady! Libby went out of her way to make sure our breakfast was perfect! A great way start to my birthday! The hotel as recently been taken over & it looks great! Would visit again!

Excellent Sunday Lunch

My wife and I went for Sunday lunch and it was excellent. My wife’s beef and my pork were perfect as were the roast spuds which deserve a special mention. Leave room for pudding – my wife is still talking about the crepe suzette.

“On our lunchtime visit on Monday this week, the a la carte was available in all its extravagant splendour plus also a menu de jour (available until 7pm Monday to Friday) costing £16.95 for two courses and £20 for three.

Service was super-attentive thanks to other customers being a bit thin on the ground – well it was Monday.

It was a lovely lunch. Period. Long live the Tontine evolution.” Malcome Warne
