Ian L TripAdvisor review

Arrived to not a particularly genuine welcome. Allocated a very small room. "ring reception if you need anything" but witnessed the phone ring several times but not answered. Tried the welcome drink but short of beer. Restaurant closed because they had two groups staying so only bar food available. Not offered the option of having breakfast in the morning. Felt to be an unwanted guest!

Great location

I've travelled to Darlington for business purposes and I have received a room facing the road, where till midnight you can hear the cars and road noise and at 5AM they collected the recyclable glass. I work long days and we need a good night sleep to keep in good shape. I gave this feedback to reception. Will see how my next stay will be.

In general an average stay. Good location but noise during early morning from local pigions and staff in corridors was not welcome. Serving staff in bar for evening meal and breakfast service were inexperienced but reception staff were more organised. It could of been better.

Kindness at Christmas

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Nomad740634 TripAdvisor review

We arrived unexpectedly at The Kings hotel on the night of the 23rd Dec. after discovering the self catering accommodation we had booked for Christmas was cold and dirty. We ending up staying until 26th. The welcome we received puts the Owner and the booking company of the self catering accommodation to shame …neither have yet responded beyond ‘sorry for the inconvenience’’. In sharp contrast the Kings staff went out of their way to welcome us as guests and make us comfortable, They showed a genuine interest in all their guests and ensured that we had everything needed This including a personally written Christmas card and a plateful of mini mince pies per a room. The Rooms were warm, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with hot food cooked to order. In addition the hotel was decorated beautifully for Christmas. The hotel pays very careful attention to the extra and important requirements needed due to the COVID 19 pandemic. This Hotel team’s wonderful kindness and generosity was a example of the true Spirit of Christmas and blessed our Christmas. Many thanks.
