The Spa Hotel

Reviewed 27 April 2013

We recently headed to Darlington to play in a netball tournament and decided last minute that we were going to head over the night before... There were 9 ladies and so we were finding it very hard to find accomodation where we could stay together. We finally came across The Spa hotel which seemed very cheap at £20 each! We booked it and I must say... It was a great decision!
I must admit, the drive to the hotel is rather off putting and the outside of the hotel doesn't exactly do it justice... But once inside we knew it was a great choice!
The staff are brilliant, the rooms are everything you want for an overnight/weekend stay, the food (breakfast) was great - and they even catered to our high demands of crumpets :) and the price is extremely good value for money!
I can not say it enough; this family run business is absolutely brilliant!
If we ever head towards Darlington/Yarm again - I will be booking here again!

And if anyone staying wants to go out for a few beverages... Yarm is a great night out!

The owners are very friendly and accommodating. The furniture is clean and basic, but the hotel is good value for money. The food is basic but tasty and the wi-fi is free.
If you are out on a night out or overnight on business this little family run hotel takes some beating. Although it is quite hard to find initially follow the signs for the St George Hotel before you pic up the Spa Hotel sign.

Stayed here for one night after a night out in nearby Yarm.

Hotel is located close to the airport down a small poorly lit track. Good welcome and shown to room which was reasonable for the price paid. Bathroom ok too. The real concern was the bed - it was so uncomfortable i hardly slept and i had to be away at 6 to catch a train

Room Tip: Test the bed before committing to the room!

This hotel is cheap and clean, and my room had a great bathroom with a lovely power shower. But this hotel is on an apparently derelict industrial estate next to the runway, the bed wasn't comfy and I was cold throughout the night. Breakfast is help yourself to cereal and juice in the canteen. There was a very large dog in reception. The car park is not well lit. I won't be returning as for an extra £20 you can stay somewhere a lot comfier and in a nicer location.

Boooked this for a course at Teeside university Darlington campus which is a five minute drive away and also pretty close to Middlesbourgh. Initially a little difficult to find due to there being only one sign (when you see the hospital go up the right hand side and the hotel is on the right) It is a hidden gem. The hotel is a converted officers mess, the double room was spacious and spotless. The staff were friendly and the dog a welcome addition, plaicd doesnt cover it, lay in the reception it just looks up and goes back to sleeping. Free wifi enabled me to carry on studying.

Breakfast offered was several types of ceral, youghurt, toast and fruit. I didnt eat in the resturant or go in the bar but will next time and have already booked.

Needing a place to stay on the way back from Scotland we selected this place. On the edge of Teeside airport it appears to be the old officers mess. Strange and quirky is the only way to describe it. The rooms were fine and comfortable and it is one of the quietest spots I have stayed although that might be down to it's location.

Staff were friendly and it covered our needs. Great place to stay if you need a stop over but not for more than one night.
