The room was clean and comfortable but the bathroom was icy cold with no radiator or heating and no blind or curtain ..not the best if the weather is cold it needs a radiator and blind or curtain for privacy in the bathroom

You get what you pay for. In need of refurbishment but adequate for what I wanted. The food was very nice though, good selection and staff were helpful & friendly. Would stay again but only for one night.

As it said on the label. Good room good service( taxi's booked) Decent all around place to stay. We were comfortable. The car park was ample. I didn't use the bar area but it looked pleasant as we went through to breakfast. Public toilets were spotless. Dining was informal and we were checked upon during the meal to ensure total... More

If you are travelling on the A1 and want a good quality reasonably priced lunch this hotel was excellent. Much better than the normal services you find on motorways. Easy to find and quick service. Will definitely stop there again.

Well...... The room is fine. The food is fine. The pub is not. It has been amusing. We were told that there was a 50 minute wait for food. This was incorrect. There was a 25 minute wait at the bar to order the food (!) and then a quite reasonable 25 minute wait for the food to appear. After... More

Stopped off here on a trip up the country. Very convenient for the A1 but this does mean there is road noise if you have a window open and as there is no air-con this is likely. Room was a good size with chair, desk and free wi-if. Bathroom a bit dated and in my room no hot water came... More

Would normally have used one of the other chain hotels, but they were all fully booked. Was a great find, friendly staff and locals. We were lucky that on the night we stayed their was a Bruce Springstein tribute act on, free entry and a fun night after a long drive. Will definitely be back.

We were in the area for a family wedding so needed somewhere to sleep and though the beds were comfortable enough and the linen clean the whole complex is grubby and tired. We decided to have the continental breakfast -this is expensive and consists of toast (made by oneself), jam/marmalade and cereals. No fruit on view, juice inferior - if... More

This was our second time staying at the Darrington, this time I was quite dissapointed especially after such a pleasant stay the first time round. The decor in the rooms and corridors is dated and dirty, paint hanging off the ceiling in the bathroom and scuff marks all over the walls in the bedrooms, which are themselves quite small in...

£60 per night for a twin room is ok. Thats just it OK. This hotel was obviously until recently a Travel Lodge. Right down to the signage for rooms and reception directions. The staff were welcoming, pleasant, friendly and efficient. The hotel is, tired, grubby and dishevelled. Beds uncomfortable and very worn, bathroom grubby and non functioning shower. In general...
