We chose this hotel/pub because it is dog friendly and we wanted our well behaved Border Terrier to be with us on our trip to the Darlington area. The location is great, it is backing onto the River Tees and the attractive gardens bordering the river. There is a Roman Fort just across the nearby bridge. Our room was clean... More

We decided to go for a meal, and being local to Darlington we thought we would go to the George. The food was 5* - and the service was too. Nothing to fault, apart from the restaurant is in need of a little touch up (wallpaper peeling off walls, painting left unfinished around radiators) apart from that it was perfect.... More

The hotel was very clean and the room we stayed in was to the usual standard, apart from the lighting, you could not see to read, Also there were no toiletries ie: shower/ gel/soap/shampoo. There were ample supplies... More

Marvellous old hotel, great location overlooking the River Tees, where we grabbed a one-nighter in January intending to explore the Roman remains nearby which Time Team had investigated in 2009. Most of the staff we met during our stay were very pleasant, attentive and helpful. Our arrival was greeted with a cheery smile and nice manner – we weren’t just... More
