Stopped here for one night and then onto the spa the following day. From entering reception on our arrival to leaving the hotel the following day all the staff throughout the hotel were friendly and polite. The room was large with a four poster bed large screen tv and basket of fruit. Roll top bath and walk in shower in...

I have mixed impressions from our stay here over the weekend before valentines. We originally booked this because we liked the quaint, a la carte restaurant, so we thought it ideal for Valentines. However, two weeks before we received an email stating we would be in the function suite, with a more limited set menu. We gave it the benefit...

Stayed for a two day weekend break and booked double executive room which was really spacious! We dined in both nights and the food was excellent. IT was a very pleasant stay and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It was our second visit and we would not hesitate to stay here again if we come back to Darlington.

My sister and I had a treat at the bannantynes spa. Micheala and Sophie made us very welcome and we enjoyed a lovely back massage , facial and scalp massage. We felt so relaxed and pampered after our spa day.

Stayed at this hotel again in January, another great stay. Room comfortable as per our previous stays. We have always been impressed by this hotel and its staff . Staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble, excellent breakfast with plenty of choice, full English breakfast freshly cooked. Will definitely return.

Absolutely lovely stay at this hotel. Friendly helpful welcoming staff. Spotless rooms and gorgeous food. Can't fault the hotel at all. Fabulous treatment at the spa but it is very much part of the gym/health club which is around a 5 min drive away rather than the hotel.

Great value at this hotel, got a lovely little suite with breakfast for £100. There are a few little things that need touching up in the room but overall it was nice. The breakfast wasn't great to be honest with very fatty bacon and scrambled eggs that resembled porridge. All pretty tasteless and cold. I'm still giving it a 4...

Frequently visit this hotel for business purposes. It's attractive because of its location, its bar and its restaurant. The rooms are nice yet not too big. Hardly any room is the same and accommodation and showers therefor can vary. Rooms are not very spacious but comfortable. You will find that allocating your room can be challenging. In general it's a...
