    Friendly and very helpful staff - nothing too much trouble. Car parking facility excellent. location excellent to walk into town for a meal in the evening.

    Tired decor and in need of refurb. Breakfast facilities poor although choice was varied however hot breakfast preferred.

    We booked a room for our sons wedding night & we where disgusted when they told us about the state of the room, there was big stain marks on carpet, the bedside lamp didn't work & other plug socket at opposite side of bed was smashed, so they had to get out of bed all the time to switch the light on or off, also the ceiling lights where hanging down.the total cleanliness of the room was not to be desired.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful they were all willing to help organise taxis and made my stay more relaxing by being so helpful and approachable.

  • Group of friends

    The staff were relaxed, friendly and helpful and really made the stay an enjoyable experience. The room was fine, clean and comfortable and the location was ideal - right in the centre of Darlington, close to local restaurants and town centre. It was super value for money.

    Personally, I would have paid a bit more to have a cooked breakfast. I have toast and cereal at home on a workday- want something more when I go away.

    This is the second time I have stayed at the Kings, the staff are friendly and helpfull.

    This is the second time I have stayed at the Kings, last time I was really pleasesd with the room, however, the room this time around was a different story! It was really worn and dirty, the net curtains were ripped and dirty on the bottom where they had been dragging on the window sill, the rail was also coming away, the check straps on one of the windows had snapped, wallpaper was peeling, in the bathroom there was an old used bar off soap in the dish, tiles were coming off the walls, the toilet seat was dirty around the hinges and the corners of the floor were dirty. All in all it was ok for an overnight stay for the price but if the rest off the rooms are like this it needs a bit of TLC!

    It was very centrally located

    It half burned down two years ago, has no leper dining room or bar, it was dingy and dirty and the breakfast was poor . The staff tried to be helpful but .....

    A very good position, very close to the city centre.

    Very old and with dirt carpet, cleaning of the room was bad.

    Quiet and local to most services.

    Breakfast too early for a Sunday (0700 - 0900).

  • Older travelers

    Very helpful and friendly staff. Nothing was too much trouble, even when they appeared to be very busy. Gave directions and assistance in how to get about. Also made recommendations for eating out. Will definitely be back. Thank you.

    The car park as it was town centre and secure. The staff were helpfull

    Continental breakfast consisted of 1 variety of cooked meat? kraft cheese slices, tinned fruit, some fresh fruit but looked a bit tired and the choice of brown or white toast some cereals.Yogurt was full fat no provision for any low fat yogurt or milk. Unable to lock room advised staff twice eventually sorted on last evening. May have been due to only one receptionist and possibly no maintenance man. Bedding e.g blanket coverlet ragged, wallpaper torn, window sills and net curtain dirty.If this hotel is an advert for Darlington, then no one would return to the town I previously lived in Darlington for 50 years and expected a lot more especially as it atvertises itself as the onlyu town centre hotel. If I had known it had gone down hill so much would never have booked. more like a cheap B&B. Have stayed at better hotels and paid half the price.
