Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nickos Disappointing stay
No recognition for platinum members, charged twice from the hotel restaurant for dinner.
I won't recommend this hotel at all.

In its favour - great location, super decor, comfy rooms and pleasant staff.
Did not like - Breakfast start times (need to get away early so visited adjacent fast-food chain), restaurant choice very limited for a vegetarian and I cannot believe that a hotel chain as big as HI does not have live Sky Sport channels.
We were informed by a particular bar staff that due to non-payment of Sky subscription the service had been withdrawn.
Maybe that's why there was only 5 people in the bar area drinking on that night!
You are loosing money (bar takings) and customers if you do not offer a simple choice such as Sky Sports.

Traveling through England, this Holiday Inn in Darlington (North A1) is a very clean and reasonable place to stay. It includes free parking for guests. Also, free basic internet for IHG members.
