Booked for 1 nights stay which was cheaper than a taxi. Paid around £40 for a room with a really comfy bed. hot shower water, tea and coffee, free wifi and a TV. What more would we need after a night on the town? Yes it is a bit tired and in need of an update but then it would... More

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

This is just a bed for the night, & compared to other well known bed only places this was cheaper. Placed alongside a main road in to Darlington, with entrance via Burtree Lane & the White Horse pub car park. The secondary double glazing does help to keep the traffic noise out. Our rooms were at the front overlooking the... More

The hotel wasn't great but what do you expect for £40 a night. Very clean and staff friendly and helpful. (especially the guy that let us use the phone and gave us a menu to order a take away at midnight). Very basic rooms. Mattress not very comfortable and also a lot of noise at night from the road outside.... More

the lodge was clean, the staff were first class, the location was next to the old A1 road. Transport to the town was approx. 500 yards away. The lodge was next to The White Horse hotel, which served good meals.

Stayed here with my mam a few times. Overall it's not bad, but there are some very rude staff. The bathrooms are quite small and very out dated. Not the cleanest either. Its just a very basic hotel. We were kicked out In the middle of the night for having guests in (although we were quiet and they were leaving... More
