I stayed here for one night whilst on business in Darlington and found it more than adequate for my needs. My room was spacious with a comfortable and I had a TV and free wi fi which was useful. The bathroom was spotlessly clean. The breakfasts were continental and just the job. There was plenty of parking and next door was a pub where I enjoyed a nice evening meal and a beer. - RichieP
