Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 206 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Another Excellent Stay Good Location as a stopover breaking a long journey. Lovely Hotel, excellent staff, nice Italian Restaurant. Looking forward to return. Only down side was my room was located at the top of the first floor stairs, and the occasional noise of people passing and using the lift disturbed my sleep. Requested on my next stay to be further down the corridor. Didn't have time to use the leisure club. 18 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 1st class hotel it was that good have already booked for next year. the breakfast is 1st class and staff were so polite and helpfull 17 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service and good food If you need to stay in this area then the Holiday in at Scotch corner is the place to stay. Good service, friendly efficient staff and good food. 14 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good hotel Friendly polite staff Clean modern room Comfortable and accommodating bar lounge area with a good array of food well served with polite and attentive staff Well worth a visit would recommend a stay there 13 September 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Reward Club Members Beware I feel Reward Club Members should be made aware that this hotel has a policy of NOT awarding points for food and beverage purchased in the hotel. Every time I stay here I have to chase up points which should have been awarded automatically. On this occasion I contacted the hotel by email twice and I have not even had the courtesy of a reply. I believe this sums up the attitude of the management at this hotel to it's customers!! 10 September 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent room with fridge, water , orange juice. Air conditioning awful Holiday Inn are usually superb, but this one wasn't because of the air-conditioning noise. It still made a noise even after it was switched off, an awful loud buzzing. A shame as we switched it on at 3 am for a while as we were so hot, because we had to close the window because of the traffic noise outside. To be expected on Scotch Corner. The hotel room was very very nice - the standard double, but to a high standard. I love having the fridge. Everything was superb - except the air-con. The staff were ok - a bit harassed. They were fully booked, and the check-in was ok not great, and the check out involved quite a queue. The breakfast was very good. Parking was free, and the location is extremely convenient. 09 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good place, great staff, good food. This has to be one of the best Holiday Inns I have stayed at. The refurb is top notch and the hotel is of good class now. It seems to be good meeting place for the business type of people and also those in the area for pleasure. My hotel room was clean and comfy and the linen and towels were of good quality. No hassle at all on checking in and out and all the three staff on reception I came into contact with were chatty and friendly, the same goes to the bar staff and Sammy in the restaurant. Any fleeting visitors need to be aware of the parking procedure here though if just calling in for a meal etc. Very good place, well recommended by me. Thanks to all there. 09 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect stay Our room was amazing. Certainly better than I was expecting. When booking on a discounted rate, I expect a broom cupboard with a view of the air-con ducts but this room could not have been better. Clean, tidy, modern and spacious. Possibly the biggest bed that I have ever slept in. Our room was at the front of the hotel but we were not disturbed by any road noise. All of the staff were friendly and professional. We dined in the bar which was nice and relaxed. The food was perhaps a little overpriced but was tasty. The buffet breakfast rates up there with the best I have ever had! 08 September 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Business Trip to Bishop Auckland Great location; lovely hotel with fantastic room with comfortable bed. The decor is good and clearly one of the better Holiday Inn hotels I've recently stayed in. So far do good. But then I thought I'd for the Italian that they were promoting. I was told that they were busy despite half occupancy at most given the amount if free tables. After and hours wait my starter finally arrived: it was ok nothing more. Then finally my simple spaghetti bolognese finally arrived: it oozed black powder and was so spicy that I was sweating profusely. Having waited near 2 hours for this I was determined to eat it. Sadly this was a mistake as it put paid to a good sleep as you can imagine what I was doing during the night: not nice! I did bring the meal issue up and was given the starter as a freebie! So my advice definitely stay in the hotel but just don't eat their: I haven't told you the story of my breakfast as run out of time. Just go across the island for food elsewhere! 07 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good service very friendly staff from the reception to the cleaning staff. check in very swift. we had a bar meal on the Friday night and was quite impressed that they now come to your table to take your order on previous stays at the hotel this did not happen. 06 September 2014
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
