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We were informed by a particular bar staff that due to non-payment of Sky subscription the service had been withdrawn.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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rooksie A nice place for a stop-over
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.

We stayed in the Hotel last weekend as our little girl was attending a gymnastics competition in Spennymoor, the staff serve breakfast at 8am however we needed breakfast at 630am the staff were in and accomadating us which is brilliant and i couldn't have asked for more, couple this with the excellent service all round and it ends up to be a flawless visit.
THANK YOU TO THE FULL TEAM.
