Score from 27 reviews Excellent
Loved the scale of the rooms, beautiful comfortable bed, crisp clean bedding, fluffy white dressing gowns and towels, quirky but comfortable. If you like clean this is the place for you - it is immaculate. Whoever is responsible for keeping this lovely hotel gleaming takes great pride in their job. Well done.
Super hotel. Perfect Quality-Price. Fantastisch kitchen. Good working WiFi. Free parking. Very good Food in restaurant as well as breakfast.
Decor, location, staff, food...the list is endless. I especially like that you had to ring for room service for refreshments - none of that instant coffee and uht nonesense even 5 star hotels subject you too.
Great concept, tasteful decor and quality furnishings.
The small size means the service is personal. The personally cooked breakfast means the food is perfect.
Single Glazing meant some noise penetrated room.
Staff, room, bed comfort and bathroom, with excellent breakfast.
Room was very small with inadequate wardrobe facility even for an overnight stay. Room was so small there was no where to put anything ! However food was excellent and staff were lovely.
Tiny cupboard of a room, which by the way was beautifully decorated and very clean. SHAME - otherwise stay was ok
Helpful staff, nice room and freshly prepared breakfast. All in all a very pleasant stay.
The staff was not very friendly und even quite rude sometimes, except for a young guy who was extremely polite and helpful. Also, the toiletties in the bathroom weren`t renewed for days, until we have actually asked someone to bring new because we run out of everything.
Location, room size and facilities, fresh-cooked breakfast, peacefulness
Finest hotel in Darlington. Everything is luxurious!!!
Everything. The staff were amazing even the manager met us in Darlington as we got lost so I haven't got words to describe the staff but out of this world. The rooms were beautiful and immaculate. OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!
Rooms, decor, food and staff
Room was a little hot and so had to open window which on a Saturday night meant some noise.
My stay was very short but it was very comfortable, just like a private residence. Breakfast was excellent, I was tempted by the cooked breakfast, it was delicious and plentiful. The hotel is extremely clean and the bedroom was very comfortable. Wanted to stay here since it opened, moving away gave me the excuse.
Missed tea/coffee in room but it was available on request. Water in room but a wrestle to open bottles.
stayed for one night.staff were friendly.hotel excellent.room 5 star.breakfast full English surperb'will use again
no car park of their own.but have use of public one behind hotel.
Everything. The staff were efficient and friendly, the service was excellent, the food delicious and with generous proportions. The hotel is small, more like a boutique hotel, with 8 bedrooms. The bedroom with ensuite was light, modern and comfortable. Centrally located within a stones throw of the town centre, with a large, reasonably priced NCP parking adjacent. £1 parking all day Sunday!
Couldn't fault my stay.
Excellent location and good carpark nearby. Nearest to a home from home stay I have had. Modern, comfortable bedroom and bathroom and great breakfast.
service comfort food bathroom
could do with double glazing the bedrooms to minimise some noise from outside
Room was lovely, very clean, loved the bath in the room. Ensuite was lovely and spacious. Really good selection of toiletries. Really lovely friendly staff, we were also upgraded which was lovely.
Noise from traffic and people going and leaving nightclub/pub very noisy but after a while was able to drown out and get some sleep. No parking at hotel although had a council car park behind hotel had to get up early to pay for parking.
great location, great hotel, very helpful staff lovely room and a breakfast great.
Quality of room, food and service.
Some quirky, interesting design and service features, great shower and bathroom facilities, very comfortable (in a Superior room), outstanding service from staff, and overall a brilliant and unexpected find. Will be coming back!
A bit of noise from road and surrounds (mid-week). The very prompt room service partly compensated for the absence of tea/coffee in the bedroom, but not wholly. Restaurant menu interesting - starter excellent, main course good, price OK. Excellent breakfast.
Stayed just one night and booked via Bookings.com. Very pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome from the night porter (we were very late arriving). Lovely room & en-suite. Very comfortable and excellent breakfast. First Class.
If being picky a car park would be great but worth the walk!
