Dianne I love the Marton Way (Toby) place but would they allow Parmos;; do you know what I`m talking about?? Babs

If enough of us wanted them, I bet the chef would do them for us as long as we ordered them in advance, so that they could get the stuff in if they don't already have it. I used to work at the Hotel Royal York in Redcar and our chefs were brilliant if people required something special. Make mine pork and John's chicken please. Dianne xx

Tobys is supposed to be good. Nice carvery :) I can send hubby down to ask if they'll do parmo if you want? Joe Rigatonis in town does parmos though, if everyone wants one of them - not me though cos I can't eat cheese lol

Oooohhh alright Dianne get the picture you know what they are, aww what a shame Tracy we can always get you one without cheese;; No but lets be good now where would peeps like to stay if they came here;; there is the Toby put £55 + night bit pricey or the Longlands down to earth clean £22 night Blue Bell £74 night know where I would stay but not my choice!! We need more input about what kind night and what kind place to stay;; Me I would go for Longlands cheap get mine-bus take into town and then peeps could decide what and where from there but I have never organised one of these does, where you do not know what people really want from visit here;;; Babs x x

There's the Country Club at Marton if we're going to Tobys - £39 (Fri-Sun) including full English breakfast. Rooms are quite good - had my wedding reception there :)

Tracy That's not a bad price at the Marton Country Club. It was our sister hotel and we charged £32.50 donkeys years ago at the Hotel Royal York. Dianne xx

For hotels, there's a Thistle in the centre of Boro, think it used to be called the Dragonara some years ago.

Easy to find too - straight off the Parkway. Even my mum found it (she got lost coming to ours once and ended up in Sainsbury's carpark in town lol)

Babs Will most of us be coming on the train,just it would be easier to meet in town ---what do you think?

Borobabs

Borobabs Report 8 Nov 2005 23:43

Having never been to a meet , just been talking to BC and she was saying somewhere cheap cheerful and maybe a seperate room as usually peeps stay where they are have good gossip get to know each other and p***ed Babs

Ann L from Darlo Report 9 Nov 2005 10:57

Somewhere fairly central,who do meals and a drink, no real need for a private room but then it depend's how many are still going at the time. If you need any help I can pop thru some time.

Andy Report 9 Nov 2005 11:15

Predictable choice but Lloyds No.1 ain't bad, is in the centre of town, spacious (on two levels), does food and drink and not expensive.

My sister is a member of the management team at Marton Hotel & Country Club, and may be able to get a discount on room, and maybe get the chef to do parmos, I'll talk to her about it and see what she says, watch this space

CB, I wouldn't stay anywhere in Stockton lol Not a very nice place to be. It has changed a lot over the last few years, and not for the better.

Borobabs

Borobabs Report 9 Nov 2005 15:09

CB, its not that bad up here in the North, but, we will have to see whar happens regards weather, seeing as they are saying we are in for the worse winter in10yrs;; That is why not putting def. date down yet;; and as for Stockton if you do come and make it for the Friday night I can easily take you for you research on the Sat;; Paul will do anothere count now;; Babs

Borobabs Report 9 Nov 2005 15:17

Right Paul we have 16, but if CB thinking of it 17+ if anyone is bringing there partners; There is a few good hotels in the Boro, but also know of 1 that is only £22 night , the Longlands Hotel clean and cheap, only 5mins from t5he town centre;; This could be a base then if we decide to do the town, ok, and then the hotel does drinks and has decent sized sitting room to use;; Babs
