Pleasantly furnished and comfortable rooms. A very well presented apartment. Access is unique but works well. Stayed for two nights. Excellent location near town centre and local facilities.

Would say that it was a decent enough apartment to stay in and we were upgraded for free to a 2 bed apartment - few gripes such as perhaps the freezer and oven could have been properly cleaned out but not a major problem. Boiler had some trouble as pressure kept going to zero, but Graeme happily answered a query on how to fix it and did get the boiler checked during the stay.

I travel on business a lot staying in a variety of hotels. It was nice for a change to stay in a nice 1 bedroom flat. There was a nice lot of space in the kitchen / living room. It was lovelly to be able to have a hot meal in. Often it is go out to a restaurant or make to do with sandwhiches and salads, so to have a kitchen with oven and microwave was fantastic. The place seemed well cared for, a security lock was broken on a side gate entrance into the secured car park when I had arrived, it was repaired the following day. The decor in the flat was nice and neutral, the sofa was comfortable. I would probably stay again if looking for somewhere in and around Darlington.

This was our base as we spent 3 days enjoying short walks on the Yorkshire Dales. It was a very comfortable small apartment with everything we needed. The bed was comefortable, position was quiet and within walking distance to a shopping centre with a Morrisons supermarket which was very handy for our self catering. The owner came to check the washing machine when I called and showed me how to work it.
A short drive from Darlington town centre and plenty of street parking outside the apartment. The apartment has everything you need and is bright and modern. Free wifi connects easy and performs well. To be picky no soap or shower gel provided. Bathroom needs decorating and professional maintenance eg yellowed gloss paint and some amateur repairs. railway museum 5 mins walk away but not a lot else in the area so you'll need a car. Overall great value for money and a lot more space and facilities than a hotel room. Recommended.
We stayed here for a trip to the Forbidden Corner and had left it too late to book anywhere closer. We were pleasantly surprised the apartments are clean and nicely decorated - we had been left beers, cookies, jam, milk and butter which was nice when we arrived. There was unrestricted parking outside too. There wasn't much in walking distance and area wasn't anything special but it was perfect as a base for us. We would definitely stay here again 😊
We rented a 2 bedroom apartment for two nights at £79 per night as an alternative to a hotel. With Morrisons close by and a well equipped kitchen we had everything we needed, and avoided the hassle of having to eat in a restaurant. We also had more space than we would have had in a hotel room.
The location - close to North Road station for the railway museum and trains to the NRM at Shildon - was ideal for what we wanted. It's not the most scenic part of either Darlington or the north of England but it was convenient, buses and trains both close by.
It is on a busy road but the bedrooms in our apartment were on the other side of the building and we weren't disturbed by traffic noise at all.
The washing machine, fridge, freezer and iron all worked - being able to put on a small wash allowed us to carry fewer clothes with us than we would if staying in hotels.
The main bedroom had twin beds which I think could be joined to form a king size double, with it arranged as a twin there wasn't anough room beside them for both bedside tables. We left it as it was but I am sure the owners wouldn't have minded if we had rearranged it a little.
I did have to switch on and tune the radio alarm clock, and adjust the boiler timings - which was very easy. Instructions for everything were available.
One issue I was a little concerned about was that my booking, through the internet, involved a 50% deposit which was takebn from my card; payment of the other 50% wasn't done when we were present and I am awaiting my credit card statement to see if it went through for the right amount.
We are planning further trips to the area and will be happy to stay at Railway House again.
We have used the Railway House on a number of occasions when visiting our daughter and her family. The apartments are clean and comfortable with everything we need; all at a very fair price. Location is within walking distance of the town centre, shops and (most importantly for us) our family.
We had a great stay here for 4 nights in this self-catering accommodation. It was well equipped, clean and nicely decorated, in fact, ideal for our needs as a family of 3. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchenette was well kitted out and the lounge area was very comfortable. Travelling with a young child we valued the freedom self catering gave us and were very pleased to have found this. The small problems which arose whist we were there were quickly seen to by the owners. There was permit free on road parking and we were able to find a space easily. It war a great base to get about from. I would definitely be happy to recommend this and stay there again.
