Both the owner Andrew and the manager Amy made my daughter and I most welcome in booking and on arrival at this lovely Victorian house with modern cottage to the rear, which is where we stayed. Excellent value as the rooms were clean with good facilities, including free Wi-Fi. The photos on this site do not do the full English... More

What a little gem this guest house is! We stayed in the new building at the back (two adults, three children and a dog) and it was perfect for us - clean, comfortable, lovely shower rooms, free wifi, and stylish decor. Andrew, the owner, and his staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating if they tried (even buying... More

Room. Poor decor with plaster falling from ceiling. Bathroom. Water tepid, taps difficult to turn on and off. Parking. Almost impossible to get in and out. Staff. Unhelpful and if you complain they are rude and insolent. Breakfast. Satisfactory.

What an incredible find. Chose to stay here as the reviews on Trip advisor rated this very highly, which I can assure you is true in every way. After a 200 mile drive I arrived later than planned which wasn't a problem for the fabulous owner Andrew. I stayed in a brilliant new room built into a seperate annex to... More

Owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Popped in for a Saturday morning breakfast treat and thoroughly enjoyed the food. I had Sausage Poached eggs and toast. My friend had full English and for the difference in price I wish id done the full brekkie. Definitely quality food at decent price. One tiny tiny thing. Carpet in the dining... More

Stayed for 6 nights and found the Balmoral to be very comfortable and clean. Breakfasts plentiful and of a good standard. Andrew was more than accommodating and very kind. The Balmoral is well situated close to the town centre and although bordering a busy road, remains quiet inside. TV's in the rooms and bathrooms nice and clean. If visiting Darlington,... More

superb breakfast, scrupulously clean and friendly owner at a fantastic rate.....you won't find any better and secure for your motorcycle. The town centre was within walking distance with great bars and restaurants. Owner could not do more to make my stay comfortable

Lovely guesthouse but it's the service that makes it stand out. Andrew went out of his way to collect me from the train station and offered to do the same for other members of our party. He couldn't have done more for us. Rooms were comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. Free (fast) wifi was a bonus

This is a place where you can feel at home! The rooms are spacious and very clean. The sheets are fresh put on (not stale) and the breakfasts are fantastic. Andrew is an absolute gentleman and with my hand on my heart i can say this is probably the best B&B i have stayed in. His staff are also lovely.... More
