After all the negative reviews, I was very surprised to find this hotel is a lot better than we expected, The hotel is joined onto a sizzling pub, you don't hear any noise for the pub at all, The hotel is very clean, Yes the furniture might be a little dated but I have stayed in more run down hotels,...

At long last a Hotel/public building that actually has taken the meaning of Disabled Toilet facilities and implemented them correctly! The disabled toilet on the ground floor is the best in the UK (believe me I have tried a few) and this one gets a full 5 stars from me. Firstly the entrance is accessible easily for wheel chairs, no... More

Stayed here with my husband as we were going to a do at the pub next door so we stayed more out of convenience than anything else. The room itself was grubby and needed a good clean and refurb, the bath, toilet and sink all were stained and cracked. There was some kind of biscuit chunks/crumbs on the floor, there... More

A group of us were going to a party in Darlington so we stopped en masse in this hotel. There was plenty of free parking. The reception and breakfast staff were friendly and helpful. The room, although reminiscent of a bed and breakfast, was clean, spacious with all the amenities required. And we certainly appreciated the tea and coffee in... More

Stayed here overnight with my hubby while in Darlington on business. Competitive prices yes, I should have heard the warning bells. Lift not working so four flights of stairs to climb. Bathroom needed a good refit and thorough cleansing. Grout at back of wash basin and bath disgusting. Bath panel filthy. Hair dryer from the ark which blew lukewarm air... More

Our expectations were low due to lots of negative comments. However, we were warmly welcomed. The room was a good size with 2 decent beds. It was clean and whilst slightly dated it was charming. Modern hotels have fitted furniture. This one had real oak furniture. We didn't have breakfast as choice was limited and we needed porridge before the... More

Shabby, noisy, dated, tired, unwelcoming, fairly cheap but not worth staying at. Total lack of interest and enthusiasm by staff who are not treated well themselves by all accounts. They certainly seem fed up! No wonder, with all the guests complaining! Rightly so, too!

Worn out beds. Tatty rooms. Poorly maintained accommodation and the property as a whole. Disillusioned but on the whole, friendly, staff. Good prices but then stale bread is cheap too. This hotel needs major investment as so many other people have already said. It is a giveaway that management never reply to all the poor reviews. They know they could... More
