When I was told the price of the room that was booked... I was very scared, however there was no need. It is basic, old, a little stale, and could use a new shower curtain and some plug in air fresheners. But it was so cheap, the staff are friendly and helpful, it's a £4 taxi ride to the town...

Hotel looks a bit basic, but at £38 per night for a room, was fantastic value. Only really slept in room after long day out, was comfortable and slept well. Arrived before midday and staff really helpful. Third stay and totally satisfied. Bus 5,7 or 8 to/ from centre, bus 6 goes fairly near as does 66.

Just spent the weekend at Darlington for a belated 60th Birthday lunch with my daughters .Unable to book usual hotel so booked above. Excellent service from reception when I informed them we would be arriving early and room was ready on our arrival.

Stayed here for 3 nights as was in Darlington for a wedding. The place is shabby and dated. We didn't realise the hotel was pet friendly until 2 dogs in the room above us started barking and continued all evening as the owners had gone out and left them. The cleaning process was adhoc wirh bags if dirty sheets being... More

It's 6 am I'm awake boiling hot no choice but to open window, the traffic is constant and noisy. All we needed was a bed for the night to break up our journey. I wish I'd slept in the car! Non smoking room stank of cigarettes and the gutter outside window full of butts. 7am fire alarm went off twice.

Customer service was simply excellent, greeted by a very friendly gentleman on arrival who swiftly checked us in. The hotel room was perfectly good for the money- what you would expect- clean and comfortable with the bonus of plenty of tea and coffee. Location is in an excellent spot for a serves-the-purpose stop-over on your way up to Scotland. A... More

We booked the Harrowgate Hill Lodge on Booking.com. The reviews that I had read didn't really make my decision a solid one but all we needed was a bed for the night for a visit to Croft Circuit. On arrival we were welcomed and on first impressions the good standard of cleanliness was evident, considering what previous reviews stated that... More
