I've stayed here 5 or 6 times now and it's always been clean and tidy with lots of hot water. It also has great "pub grub". It's also in a nice quiet location where it's easy to relax and wind-down, unlike some next-to-the-motorway lodges who shall remain nameless. Breakfast was a buffet and basic but plenty for me (tea/coffee, fruit... More

Very clean and tidy, great staff, good food, very quiet would go again if down in that area, we were racing at Croft Circuit so was perfect and great value. Small downside area looks a bit run down and a bit difficult to find with Nav. Oh Wi FI not great !

Only booked the very last minute. I admit the price swung the deal, so didn't expect much. So was pleasantly surpirised at how good everything was. It satisfied my needs for an overnight stay. Friendly and helpful staff. Hope to use again, if I'm done that area again.

I recommend the hotel if you are looking for a no frills budget hotel operated by a husband and wife that can make you feel like home. Don't expect a spa, swimming pool, gym or high fashion furniture and decoration, but what you do get for a reasonable price is a clean spacious room with breakfast. Parking available. I stayed...

Visited only to have the Sunday Carvery. To be honest when we pulled up I thought oh my goodness where have they brought me! No frills or spoils but I thought well here now and hungry. Somewhat dated inside and reminded me of a 80's throwback, Place was really busy. We were served at the bar very quickly and purchased... More

The spa hotel is great if your looking for a quick stay over before catching a flight at the airport, it's not for from darlington town centre and great for motorway links, dont be expecting a great view from your room because you'll be disappointed, the price is spot on for the amenities and the staff are welcoming and helpful

I was there a few nights at the spa. It was clean, comfortable and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The location is a little isolated if you dont drive. other than that, lovely. If I'm in the area again i will use them again and recommend them.
