Stopped in room 2 for 3 nights on business. Very comfy bed and clean too. Quite a few steep steps to the rooms so no good if you are disabled. 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...

When i arrived, i rang the proprietor to gain access and whilst i was waiting took a look at the accommodation I was staying in for the night. Looking at it, I was filled with dread because It didn't look much on the outside but it was cheap. I gained access and was taken to my room. Well, it was... More

This accommodation is in the centre of Darlington and less then 15 minutes walk from the main railway station and North Road station. There are also plenty of places to eat and drink close by. The accommodation is clean and very well presented and, despite being in the centre of town, is very quiet. The prices are exgtremely reasonable, and... More
