“A Refreshing Change”
Reviewed 27 January 2005

I recently stayed at 'The Croft' formally Croft Spa and I have to say what a refreshing change. The hotel has been lovingly restored and offers very refreshing bedrooms. The room I stayed in was called 'The Oriental' which had marvellous authentic 'thai' furntiure and deep red walls. Definatly the best small hotel I have come across in years!

From the village that hosted Lewis Carroll, Croft, Darlington, we have the Croft Spa Hotel

Not yet fully geared up for the business traveler, (no easy access to the internet, no direct line to the room phone, no local maps etc.) during my stay in the summer of 04, the hotel has, however, an ideal business location and lots of potential, as it is set close to Darlington and Teesside airport.
Food is not very well served (you have to sit in the restaurant and then go and order the food at the bar, which is a bit odd); the food is essentially a cross between nouvelle cuisine & 'pub food' which needs some rethinking

I think the owner needs to study a few other business hotels outside the North of England, to see the kind of service that should be available if they wish to attract the 'business' market. However, it is obvious that the current owner is making great effort to upgrade this Hotel and must get full marks for effort....

I would recommend it today only because the price is relatively low for the area. Maybe in a years time ('05) when they have finished building the houses on the site of the old car park, and the phone system has been modernised...and the rooms have proper chairs to sit in....it will be worth a revisit...curiously, the Hotel has not capitalized on Lewis Carroll..which is a wasted opportunity. They are the only hotel in the village and if they do not celebrate one of England's most famous writers then who will...

I have now stayed at Croft Spa twice. It is one of the nicest modestly-priced hotels I have ever stayed in - beautifully clean, well furnished, lovely rooms, really friendly staff, good breakfasts. I felt instantly at home there. I stay in a lot of hotels, and, for the most part, it is a hazardous process. But the Croft Spa was and is a real find. I can't wait to go again.
