Booked this as price was reasonable and to be fair there isn't a lot of accommodation in central Darlington. This has an ideal location and was just a few minutes walk to where I was attending a leaving party. It is above a shop and this means there is only someone there between the shop opening times but there is... More

We were going to a leaving do and decided to book this place as it is central and looked nice. There are only 3 rooms and we stayed in room 2 which was clean and newly decorated with a toilet and shower area up a few steps in the room. I did feel the tv was on the small side... More

Stayed one night when visiting friends, great location, room in top of house was so light and airy. Walked past first time, but would return, no bother !! 5 min walk to the centre, plenty of pubs and restaurants, 10 min walk from the train station.

Tv was wired into the internet which was good for watching iPlayer but wifi code. only 3 rooms in the B&B but family run who were helpful. Plenty of free... More

Ticked all the boxes...welcoming, warm and clean. Loved room 3 esp the quirky touches. Good location, in the heart of all the action! For any fabric magpie, the shop downstairs is a must. Thanks for a great stay.

Enjoyed a two nights stay at The Old Tailor. Our room was very comfortable, tastefully decorated and furnished and spotlessly clean with a tidy en-suite shower room. We found the owners to be helpful, friendly and welcoming. It is in a good central position for shopping, eating, drinking, entertainments etc. All in all a great place to stay.

We stayed at the Old Tailor last weekend, it is very central and easy to find. The rooms are themed around a Tailors / sewing. Our room had lovely original wood flooring, with a nice ensuite. We'll be going back, and my wife even wants to do the craft / sewing classes that they hold there sometimes.

We have just experienced a real gem accommodation right in the centre of Darlington. We were met by the owners who were extremely courteous and helpful. They were happy to give us information about local amenities and attractions. We were impressed by the the light and airy room that was spotlessly clean and well fitted and decorated. It was large...
