I stayed here for a wedding, the wedding breakfast was ok at best. For some reason the team were reluctant to top up wine glasses even though it had already been paid for. The room I stayed in was way to expensive for what it was and an additional charge of £30 to make up a sofa bed (which is... More

What a lovely unique hotel. Friendly staff. Fabulous room especially the bathroom. Only problem was that the walls 'moved' whenever a door was closed. Guests seemed to slam doors! Lovely ice cream parlour just down the road to add to the attraction. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

This was the perfect place to go. The cottage was beautiful and had a hot tub in the garden. The staff at the Castle were all very friendly and welcoming, from... More

I went on an office visit to Darlington and this is the hotel they booked for us. Where should I start, it's a small but beautiful castle/Hotel. Amazing food, try anything and it would be the best in town. The staff, manager, Barmen or the ppl are just amazing. It's a little away from town so we had to a... More

As a regular user of BW hotels, 100-150 nights per year this is the first time I have been treated disrespectfully at check in. The hotel has an award winning restaurant apparently but I did not use it as I chose to dine in the nearby town. Out of the way if you want a quiet time, 15 minutes by... More
