We had a Bed, Breakfast and Dinner package through a Groupn Offer which was a fantastic deal and we felt that it was good value for the money. The hotel is dated and in need of some TLC but our room was excellent and also the bathroom. All the staff that we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. As another... More

Blackwell Grange was all we wanted it to be and served our weekend well. Every question on their survey we rated excellent. Everything really was excellent. Arrival at reception you felt welcomed the room was what was wanted large and airy bathroom clean. We will certainly return and would recommend Blackwell Grange for a stay.

Stayed one night. Rooms were clean but dated. Both menu's given had limited choice although food was nice. All the staff were friendly and helpful. I doubt I would make a return visit. Hotel needs a lot of love and attention, which would bring it back to its former glory.

Stayed here for 3 nights, the staff were rude, the pipes kept us awake all night. We had travelled for 5 hours to get here, so to say we were bitterly disappointed was an understatement. We complained & the manager called & said next time we were passing through we could have a free drink?! Would not recommend and won't... More

I stayed one night at this hotel and thought it was a very pleasant and peaceful place. The room was clean and more than adequate in size. The staff were pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately I was not able to try the restaurant nor the breakfast but I enjoyed my one night stay.

Stayed here one night and was put in one of the cottages. Tucked away from the main hotel it had its own courtyard for parking in. My room was upstairs and to my surprise had a bedroom, bathroom and a small living area with a sofa and an armchair plus a small desk. It had its own YV in there... More

We stayed here for one night as part of a Trafalgar tour and I was very disappointed with the room. It smelled of mildew, had no air conditioning, and no toiletries in the bathroom. A call to reception confirmed they did not even have a box of tissues. There was no clock radio and the bathroom had zero counter space.... More

This was a last minute booking - a break that included B&B and a two course evening meal. The hotel is in fantastic grounds (two weddings there during our stay) The reception areas are clean and well laid out. Our bedroom was spacious and had everything we needed. We visited the spa/swimming pool and the staff were excellent (this again... More

I've been using Blackwell Grange in Darlington for business trips for 2 years and I'll continue to do so (hopefully) for many more. The hotel is a ridiculously short drive or walk from the city centre and very close to Durham too. Ideally located the hotel is also set in wonderful grounds and as such is always very quiet whenever... More

Just had 3 nights at Blackwell Grange for a wedding. We were very apprehensive after reading some of the reviews. Yes, it is a bit tired and in need of an injection of cash. Yes, our refurbished room had a cracked sink. However, the staff are friendly and welcoming, the gym and pool were absolutely fine, the grounds are stunning... More
