Guest Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 196 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mini reunion Meet Despite its' older looking façade, the Scotch Corner Inn was surprisingly good value. The one and only Blot I really have is that it would have been nice to have been informed beforehand (we had booked ages ago) that the Restaurant would not be open during our stay. To be fair the evening meal arranged for us in a separate location was excellent and the service of Lucy in particular was most meritorious, but we were looking forward to trying Fratellis(?) 05 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good food, excellent staff The hotel was easy to locate. Interior décor was most pleasing. Staff in all areas were excellent, polite, friendly and eager to please. Swimming pool was a welcome addition, although not in main building. 05 September 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Shocking Service Would advise any future customers to buy drinks and food from M 04 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean & modern with good facilities Nice, clean room, good facilities. Kids couldn't wait to go in the pool. Food was excellent but a bit pricey, but at the end of the day you get what you pay for!! Had a function going on but we were not disturbed at all. Will be back next year for the Paras10. Thanks. 04 September 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good location... Great location, staff were professional and friendly however it was let down with poor noise reduction in the corridor. Two children kept using the corridor as a race track and the giggling was a little too much after a while. 03 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Few days away Lovely friendly hotel, with a modern feel. All staff very friendly. Easy to find. Would stay again. 03 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Recommendable Good Location on way to Scotland. Due to comfort and facilities, good price, less than other holiday inns. On our way back, we made a detour to stay there once more. Recommendable. 01 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good over night stop Very comfortable and clean room. No fee for parking and staff very helpful. Would recommend and if travelling stay here again. 01 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great place for a stop and onward travel excellent stay when travel to main towns in the north of England and Scotland 01 September 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good stay Good comefortable clean hotel,in a good situation. I have passed this hotel on many occaisions on my travels, I will now correct this error and will be a return guest. 27 August 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scotch Corner stopover Good for a stopover - much improved interior. Rooms good, breakfast sausages a tad overcooked on our brief experience! Handy en route to York Races. Worth a try if you haven't stopped here for a while 27 August 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Restricted Gym Access Can't believe access to the gym is now restricted between 1700-2000 hrs..so for people who can't check in until after 5 there is now a compromise of having dinner first then going to gym and working out on a full stomach or dining extremely late. The gym access is pointless for Monday to Friday business stays. 25 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A hotel with a difference The last time I stayed here was before the makeover. I couldn't believe it was the same hotel. It has been luxuriously appointed with attention to detail and no expense has been spared. The food was good and the bedrooms clean and comfortable with upmarket toiletries. I shall have no hesitation in booking when I am next in the area. Dr. P. 22 August 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Modern decor, good location and comfortable We stayed in the hotel for one night and arrived late. We were received warmly and the restaurant stayed open a little longer so we could eat! Appreciate that. Room was spacious and comfortable and parking is free on site. All nice, great for business travellers as well as families at a very reasonable price 22 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Overall service Staff were always very helpful and keen to please. I liked that newspapers were available in the mornings foc, maybe an idea to keep a few copies behind reception for evening requests for a newspaper? I have not generally used Holiday Inns before but will seek out a good bargain in the future. A good local B 21 August 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by poor sleep and bad staff attitude at Holiday Inn Scotch Corner the receptionist greeting was non existent on arrival. I actually found her to be unfriendly unprofessional and offensive. The rooms were ok but the mattress and bedroom was sub standard and not what I expect from a holiday inn. Better beds and bedding at Premier Inn. 20 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Stop over After a four hour drive it was good to arrive and receive a friendly welcome! We were very impressed with the standard of accommodation and the breakfast was excellent. We had to change dates and really appreciated how easy this was to do at minimal cost. 20 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HOLIDAY INN SCOTCH CORNER DARLINGTON BEAUTIFUL ROOM, EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY. THE SERVICE WAS A BIT SLOW IN THE BAR, BUT THE STAFF WERE FRIENDLY. I HAVE ALREADY RECOMMENDED THIS HOTEL TO SEVERAL PEOPLE 19 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth a stay for comfort, service and access to the region We drive past the Scotch Corner every time we travel south on our holidays. What a surprise it was to actually stay here and experience what it has to offer. Don't be put off by the stark exterior as the welcome and quality experience inside are value for money and above what might be expected. Friendly staff, relaxing and well-maintained surroundings helped to create a happy atmosphere where all other guests we saw appeared to be enjoying their time there as much as we did. 19 August 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Spacious room, good service, great fitness suite Staff were professional, room clean and comfortable. Doors in corridor rather noisy and a squeaky floor upstairs woke me earlier than I had hoped. Great to have complimentary use of the adjacent pool and gym. Great value for money. Entrance and bar a bit dingy and tired-looking - could do with brightening up. Also, while bar staff were friendly and polite, service was very slow - possibly not enough staff on duty? Didn't affect overall stay, which was very pleasant, comfortable and would definitely go again. 17 August 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable stay All good with exception of breakfast, peeking at the guest record it looked as we were some of the last for breakfast. Food was not hot enough and with just warm plates half way through eating our food it was cold. 16 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Superb accessible facilities As a disabled guest, I was highly impressed by the accessible facilities supplied. The wet room was extremely large, with both an overhead shower and hand-held one. There were plenty of grab rails, and a chair for sitting on under the shower. I use crutches permanently, but had I been in a wheelchair, there was ample room to move around in one. The one thing I would have loved to have had was an electric adjustable bed - I tend to seize up overnight, and to be able to gradually sit up would have been extremely beneficial. All in all though top marks to Holiday Inn for really thinking through what facilities a disabled person requires. 15 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by slept like a log bed was so comfortable I got to the hotel so tied I just wanted a hot shower and a comfortable bed so after a glass of wine from the bar I went to my room and found everything I needed I got one of the best nights sleep I'v had for a long time 14 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best in hotel stay in years Absolutely faultless in every way. Everything just worked like clockwork. We were looking for a hotel to accommodate myself / my wife plus my two elderly and rather frail parents in order to visit friends in Barnard Castle. We booked fairly closely to our date and the hotel were able to meet our needs for an accessible room for my folks which was next door to our own. The check in staff were very efficient and made sure that my folks didn't have to wait around too long. As we had spent 5 hours on the road we rested up before heading to the in- house restaurant for a great meal at great value. Once again the staff were very attentive and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The first nights sleep was very comfortable and we awoke refreshed for the day ahead. Breakfast was excellent - plenty of choice despite the fact that the room was quote busy, plus smiling staff - just the right start to the day. We visited with our friends and returned to the hotel late afternoon where my wife and I used the pool and sauna while my folks rested up. Everything was clean and, once again, the staff were very friendly asking how we had enjoyed the day and providing pointers about the local area. After an early nightcap we retired for another night's restful sleep. Another great breakfast on our last day then we asked for a checkout extension in order not to have to hurry my folks. No problem. All in all our stay was 5 star. Thank you Holiday Inn for a great experience. We will default to HI for our next family weekend soon. 12 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by friendly and attentive staff an overnight birthday celebration spent with a few fiends was most enjoyable in the welcoming and comfortable hotel 07 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by minimoon Cracking hotel, friendly staff, superb restaurant, great room, lovely little pool with excellent steam room and sauna. I would highly recommend this hotel. 06 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by whitby stopped off on the way to Whitby as I/we have been passed this hotel many times 06 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very enjoyable stay; excellent customer service We have stayed at many Holiday Inns, previously, and this one didn't necessarily inspire confidence from the outside: just off a roundabout off the A1. However, as soon as we arrived at reception, the experience picked up. Every member of staff, starting with the receptionist, was outstanding, and seemed genuinely concerned with our having a good stay. We had booked an executive room (the only twin room available when we booked), and this was huge, well appointed, and well equipped. Everything worked, and the beds were extremely comfortable. Situated well away from the road, albeit with a view of the inside workings of the hotel, the room was very quiet, with no road noise from the nearby A1. We ate in the Italian restaurant that night, and enjoyed a wonderful meal. Breakfast, the next morning, was fine, although there was a significant wait at the hot breakfast counter where several items seemed to run out at the same time, and seemed to take a long time to arrive. However, this notwithstanding, the breakfast was much enjoyed. The inside of the hotel is full of lovely Art Deco features, and the signage matches this, too. Although there are many signs of Holiday Inn corporate image, even this is replaced by the Art Deco signage. If in the area, again, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here, and cannot commend the staff highly enough. 05 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent hotel with very friendly staff I stay at this hotel on a regular basis and I have never been disappointed. The rooms are very modern and always clean. The beds are very comfortable. You get complimentary water and orange juice in the fridge and a choc bar and there are tea making facilities. There is an excellent pizza restaurant in the hotel which also serves excellent pastas and you can also eat old favourites such as fish and chips in the bar area. The staff here are very helpful and friendly. There are also gym facilities available in the health club but I have never had time to use them. All in all excellent. Mr Solomon 02 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great stop-over Good size room - very clean and function able. Excellent restaurant for both dinner and breakfast. Varied menu, food well cooked and plentiful. First class service throughout. 28 July 2014
