So I initially visited on my own and stayed in room 10. Apart from a wobbly headboard (sorted by wedging a pillow behind), it was absolutely fine. I ate on my own in the bar. The food was good, even though I was served the wrong steak. A simple error at the till, but quickly rectified by the friendly staff....

Heading back home decided to stop off here rather than cook. Menu sounded good and bar staff were really friendly. However, on entering the restaurant we were shown to our table in the centre of the room which was quite large and there was so much space around us we felt a little lost! There was only two other tables...

Called in during a journey back from Teesside for lunch. Great customer service and good quality very reasonably priced food. Good set menu plus Specials. Excellent value! The hotel looks cosy and rooms around courtyard look like they will be nice and quiet.

I've been staying at the Park Head for quite some while, and think its a great place to stay for business. The management are really flexible, and the price is very good. The food is excellent, although their 2-for-1 annoys me because I'm on my own at the hotel. It makes the steaks ridiculously expensive. However, all in all, well...
