Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel, Darlington
Loved it!
Visiting family in Darlington, hotel was in a central location with easy access to restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Only problem was no air moving making room feel stuffy. Would have liked to have a fan in the room.

Decent hotel, well located, easy stay, recommended
I needed a clean, well serviced hotel in the centre of town and this was ideal. Best for business, rather than romance, but very pleasant none the less. Lots of well-healed locals like to "coffee and cake" in the cafe/bar downstairs. There is a ballroom for events and a guests restaurant and bar upstairs. Good but limited parking is available - over three nights we always managed to get a park - but it is on a first-come first-served basis, and alternate carparks in the town are scarce.

Ticks the boxes
I chose this as it said it came with a mini bar in the room but there wasn’t a fridge in the room, not sure if this is an error with but it needs changing on the description. 🙄 convenient location though
