The hotel has a lovely friendly atmosphere and is nicely appointed (although my builder husband thought the... More

Another enjoyable stay at Bannatynes Darlington (having stayed many times). I always find the staff very friendly and approachable if you need anything. The Hotel is very comfy and has a welcoming/warm feel which along with the central location and reasonable prices makes it a great spot to stay when in "Darlo" Breakfast is either plated or from a buffet...

I met up with some business contacts for dinner (they were staying over at the hotel through my recommendation) so we all had dinner on the evening. They couldn't believe how amazing and inexpensive the menus are and said it was 10 of out 10. I obviously agree at I just love dining in this hotel - the staff are... More

Bannatyne hotel in central Darlington is a well located, clean and comfortable stay. Ideal if you want to eat an evening meal in the hotel or within walking distance of a selection of restaurants in the town, our favourite was Al Forno, a contemporary Italian with a champagne bar. The only drawbacks to choosing this hotel are the provision of... More
