I recently attended a close friends wedding at the hotel and was absolutely blown away by the whole venue. From the bedroom, to the function rooms, to the grounds, location and the amazing staff, it is the perfect venue. I will be recommending this to everyone.

Had to stay here last week, as it's quite close to the station and offices. The night I stayed, the hotel was fully booked so I had little choice in room. I was given a room on the ground floor with a view of the car park. The room has two single beds which were quite small, but were OK... More

The hotel is listed as a four star and from the outside when you arrive looks a nice building. Car parking is very limited from my experience. When you get inside the staff are friendly and it is good to see the original detail of the old hotel have been kept but the hotel is showing signs of age with... More

An average hotel that needs an update. Wallpaper peeling, carpets thread bare and very, very warm rooms with poor ventilation. The room we had the bath would fill up as you showered and if you wanted to use the sink at the same time as somebody is in the shower the sink fills up as well. Staff were very friendly.... More

My 3rd review, I think, so I won't wax lyrical too much, it'll look like I'm on commission :-) It's not common to go somewhere and always have an excellent experience, every single time. Which is why the Bannatyne Hotel in Darlington deserves acknowledgement for achieving that. Apart from the usual quality elements I have commented on before, eg the... More
