“Great stay and great hospitality in the centre of Hartlepool.”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We have just stayed at the Douglas Hotel for one night as we were attending a wedding. We booked following on from great reviews on this site but the place far exceeded our expectations. We had a great stay and will be back!

I found the Douglas to be all you would want from an independent hotel. The staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly. Our rooms were of a pleasing contemporary design, clean and fresh looking, and comfortable. Breakfast options were what you expect and well cooked and presented. Excellent.

Room Tip: If you prefer bath or shower cubicle it would be a good idea to mention when booking.

we had a really miserable day before we finally found hospitality @ douglas! Arrived really late that rainy evening and got a warm welcome! Very friendly people and the room was good, too.

Only thing we have to "complain" the enormous size of the breakfast portions ;)
Tasted good though and was a good premiere for a full english breakfast!

thx!

Cycling Land's End to John O'Groats & arrived late on a Saturday evening, & the staff were great. Let us park bikes inside & served food despite being after official time for chef to go home. Our room was clean & comfortable. Good value as well. Recommend the Douglas.

Room Tip: We were on top floor & it was quiet.

Stayed in the Douglas Hotel while working in Hartlepool, easy hotel to find in the centre, ample parking around the hotel, very friendly welcome upon arrival, stayed in single room, slightly smaller than other hotels but all you really need, rooms clean and well serviced. Hope your hungry if you stay here, food is excellent and great value, hats off to the chefs, huge plates and rarely finished a meal, would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Hartlepool,would stay here again. Thanks Lee and Mally and the rest of the staff

I stayed at the hotel for one night on 14th May, and although a brief stay the standard of the hotel is excellent. Very clean everywhere, the room was very comfortable, well kept and nicely decorated. More like a bedroom at home rather than a hotel - small bedside lamps and other similar 'small touches' which made it very homely and relaxing. All of the staff were very welcoming, friendly and only too happy to make my stay a very pleasurable experience. It's located close to the town centre so very accessible and although on a main road, but don't be put off by that as it's very quiet.

The full english breakfast was huge and I couldn't finish it; superbly cooked.

I have no hesitation in thoroughly recommending the hotel, it's excellent!

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent. My room was on the main road side of the hotel, overlooking the church oppo...
