“Great stay”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

We stayed 2 nights last week, Sunday and Monday. It is easily accessible by either bus or taxi from the railway station a mile and a half away and there is ample parking if you drive, it is a better than average Travelodge in our experience, with friendly and very helpful staff and clean and modern rooms. It is situated on an office/retail type estate out of town so is quiet during the night, at least from rooms at the front of the hotel, whereas a main road to the rear may mean higher noise levels. The Toby Carvery next door offers standard fare but offers a great value breakfast from a basic price of £3-99 for all you can eat. Including unlimited tea we paid just under £12 for the two of us. It would be the hotel of choice in the unlikely event that we should ever be minded to pay Darlington a second visit.

I am a great fan of Travelodges as they are such good value for money. Very friendly reception staff and clean room. I do wish that Travelodge would do proper twin rooms instead of the small camp beds as a second bed. Their double beds are very comfortable but the little camp beds are not suitable for an adult. This is a new Travelodge and the Toby Inn next door is very handy. The main issue we had was that the water was not hot enough for a bath and the shower had to be on maximum to be just about warm enough. I would not stay at this Travelodge again until the water temperature had been sorted out.

Room Tip: If you want a bath make sure you request one as not all rooms have them.

On my recent one night stay I found my room to be modern, clean and fresh.
I got a good nights sleep in a new sleepeezee bed. Staff were welcoming on arrival. No complaints. If you are travelling by public transport the number 11 bus from town centre/train station will take you to the nearby retail park and its about a 10 minute walk from there.

Stayed here for 1 night on the 1st Feb as we came up to meet friends. Really great receptionist who was on when we got there around 3.15pm, very helpful. I was amazed at the rooms, clean, comfortable, everything we needed, I would really recommend this hotel, I know its fairly new, and will probably get wear worn but we loved it.

The staff were very friendly and took genuine interest in making sure I got all I needed, booking my taxis for me. The room was clean and smelled fresh and nice and allowed me have a comfortable night rest after a long day at work. Apart from the small omission of forgetting to replenish my tea and milk in the room on the following day, overall I would strongly recommend thisTravelogue as good value for money.

The hotel is 2 miles outside Darlington. It is a new Travelodge, new refurbished rooms and very clean. Friendly helpful staff. The chain are trying to coax people from Premier Inn and they will do it with rooms of this quality and price. New beds which are very comfortable. The upgrade of the rooms across the chain is looking very good. There is a Toby Inn next door to the hotel which is also new. Buffet breakfast starts at £3.99, again very good value. Would not hesitate staying here again when next in Darlington.
