Being a jaded HI user this was my first stay at the HI Darlington / Richmond, and what a pleasant surprise. I arrived tired, and got depressed when I saw the outside, but please don't be put off by the uninspriing exterior, or the location on a roundabout (seriously) it is well laid out, recently refurbished and a good place to stay. The room was excellent, service good, staff friendly, and ambience much better than the normal HI fare.
This is a good 4* offering from HI with a pleasant feel. Book and stay with confidence.
Downside: greasy fish and chip supper (my fault, should have gone for a salad!).
Upside: far better than it looks.More
