Our son and his partner had booked this hotel a couple of months ago and txt us that it was the sort of hotel we would like..... they weren't wrong.
On arrival you navigate a long drive up to the main ( impressive ) building and reception, surrounded by well manicured gardens . The main desk , bars and restaurant are situated in the old building which I assume was an old manor house, it also has a fantastic staircase on which many wedding photos would have been taken. We booked via superbreaks two night deal incl one night dinner and full English both mornings. The bedroom No 219 is in the new part of the buildings and was a very spacious room , well equipped ( bed a bit firm / bathroom functional ) flat screen tv / tea coffee etc etc. check in was painless and all the reception staff where very approachable and happy to give directions to destinations and help with any request. Booked a table for 7pm and was looked after by mark in the restaurant . He was very attentive and very polite asking if everything was ok with our food ..... the food is of very high standards and some of the best hotel food we have tasted with a good choice from a set menu. We had two courses and thoroughly enjoyed them,the second night we decided to stay in the hotel and eat again as the prices of the food and drink were very reasonable. Breakfast set us up for the day and again quality produce cooked well and plenty of it as it was a buffet . The hotel has a gym and small pool which I did visit .... free to any who are staying at the hotel. We visited Darlington/Durham and many other places in the surrounding area... this is a good base being close to the A1 and some great countryside. All the hotel staff we met where polite and talkative asking if we had enjoyed our days out etc and are a credit to the owners. I would recommend this hotel to all ages , close enough to town for those who are looking for a night out and in a quiet location for those who want a bit of peace.
Try it you wont be disappointed........
