Just on my third day at the Holiday Inn Darlington North. Very convenient location right next to the Motorway but no problems with Road noise unless you have a window open. Nice size clean room, very friendly staff from the front reception to the dinning room and those hard working cleaning ladies making up the rooms.
Good standard of breakfast with all the usual choices. Plenty of extra little things like choice of pillows, and a range of extra toiletries if you have forgotten something.
There is a McDonald’s and service station with a subway within easy walking distance if you don’t want to eat at the hotel.
Free wifi in the room free printing if you need. Would definitely recommend and return myself.

We were on a mini tour of Yorkshire and this was one of our stopping off points. The price was good and included full breakfast. The rooms are spacious and have what you need. The down side was the set up of the bathroom: sink outside the in the bedroom area and nowhere to put your toiletries. There is not much around the area apart from McD’s so you’ll have to drive somewhere to eat if you don’t wish to eat there. The other point is the postcode for the place - it’s not quite the right location. Because there’s building works going off in the area there are no signposts telling you where it is and you end up driving up an unfinished road to nowhere. So just some you know, turn left at McD’s, left again and just past the Jet petrol station.

Fabulous friendly helpful, and so welcoming, well done Holiday Inn you've some gems here. Room clean tidy modern beds very comfy. Breakfast lovely everything you could want cooked lovely. Staff detours up in the lounge as we had our dog with us and the lounge and bar area was dog friendly. Never been somewhere so dog friendly was amazing. We had dinner and wine with package, dinner wasn't too overwhelming, the tomato soup was like a tin of tomatoes but edible. Nacho starter was fab, prawn cocktail basic, scotch egg devine. Ranch burger good as was haddock n chips. Don't bother paying premium for steak was tough and not cooked as asked but that can happen with steak personal choice really but very plain with no greenery.

Have to reiterate though wouldn't hesitate to stay again fabulous.

I prefer to split long journeys now days and the Holiday Inn Darlington is in the perfect location for me, the price is reasonable and the breakfast is very good. My only complaint was that drinks in the bar had to be charged to the room, although that might have been because I arrived after 11.00pm.
