Our bed was lovely and comfortable and the shower was fantastic. We had booked for bed and breakfast but decided to eat in the hotel on the first night. The food was first rate - huge portion of chicken - such a shame I couldn't finish it as it was so large!! Food was so good we ate there on... More

Stayed here for my sisters wedding and couldn't have picked a better place. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The decor is old fashioned but it suits the character of the building and it would be a shame for that to change.Rooms are clean and spacious and would stay again. Top marks!!!

Stayed her for a friends wedding. The building is very attractive but the facilities are quite basic. The room was quite small, the shower was quite powerful but not great at keeping a consistent temperature. The main issue I had was that our double bed was actually two singles pushed together, this is something I particularly dislike and something event... More

Stayed here with my daughters for a pre wedding break. Staff were very helpful and attentive. Grounds were lovely and well kept. Front of the hotel impressive as was the reception area but beyond that was like a 1* basic experience. The rooms were very dated and dirty with stained and chipped decor, carpets stained and unwelcoming. Restaurant meal was... More

Stayed here for the second time and this time wasn't as good as the first. The room was very dated and needed a proper clean. First thing I noticed was the dead mosquito on the window and furniture in the room was basic. Bathroom was OK but the bath needed a good clean

Stayed here on a 2 night dinner, bed and breakfast break. Lovely hotel with lovely grounds. The standard of the hotel was very good and the food and staff excellent. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We stayed here again for a vow renewal (our own). The staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The staff made the whole experience one to remember and should be applauded for all their efforts. The room itself was very nice, a very large bed with en suite facilities . The room had a TV, complimentary wifi and... More

Needed to stay in Darlington for a couple of nights with son and daughter-in-law. This hotel was a lovely choice in lovely grounds. Not impressed with the receptionist when we checked in, she was rather rude and unfriendly. It was then we discovered the pool was closed which was a huge disappointment as we only stay in hotels with full... More

My husband & I were passing through Darlington on Sat evening & decided to break our journey with an overnight stop in the Blackwell Grange Hotel. The receptionist did tell us we were getting 1 of the last few rooms so maybe that is why we were disappointed with the accommodation. We were in room 239 which is in the... More
