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.

Very Good8.0
Excellent location and good value for money,however if I'm being picky the tv guide was not working and the LED time display was hour's wrong and the tv remote was locked so that guests could not change the settings. Very picky but annoying.....

Excellent customer service, clean room and good breakfast however my room on the top floor was clearly directly below the boiler or ventilation system as I was kept awake for hours listening to the very loud noise generated above me
