« Merseyferry »

A very pleasant and enjoyable stay, located in the heart of Darlington with free parking and very nice rooms and clean hotel. There are numerous bars and cafes etc; within a short distance from the hotel and is very close to the train station also. the staff are very helpful and have good local knowledge. Stayed in this hotel over 20 years ago so it was nice to go back and see the transformation it has recently had done. A credit to Mercure and it will not be 20 years before I go back again, I will be back more often.

Johnathon C, Manager at Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel, responded to this review

Hello merseyferry, Thank you for such a positive review. We always aim to please and i am delighted we have managed on this occasion. One of the big bonuses for staying with us is our central city center location and i am delighted this met with approval. Hope to welcome you back soon. Kind regards, Johnathon Cairns Operations Manager

« Excellent Value »

Location was central to Darlington. Breakfast was fabulous and in a wonderful dining area with excellent service, room was lovely even though it was a twin when we wanted a double, would definitely recommend to friends

Johnathon C, Manager at Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel, responded to this review

Hello christinerowlinson, My team and I very much appreciate your kind words, and we’re glad to have been a part of your visit. I am particularly pleased you enjoyed both your dining experiences and found the service excellent. We look forward to welcoming you back at the Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel. Kind regards, Johnathon Cairns Hotel Operations Manager

« Short but excellent stay »

A real find, during a road-trip stopover in a city we don't know at all. Friendly, efficient staff, both by email and at arrival/check-out. Convenient parking facilities (though space limited, so it might be a problem when the hotel is very busy). Great value for money for a quality room. We are light sleepers, but we didn't really hear the clock tower bells, which we'd seen cited as a problem by several reviewers (we just heard the midnight chimes). Breakfast was excellent value for money. The only fly in the ointment was the proximity of a fire-door next to our room, which apparently has an illogical opening sense for many customers, meaning that they pulled/pushed it the wrong way and we heard the resulting bangs when the main flow of breakfast customers started (a "Push" and "Pull" sign on the door would solve that, at least in part).

Johnathon C, Manager at Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel, responded to this review

Hello jwfwarsaw, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel. We are delighted you found the staff to be friendly and welcoming and that the stay offered great value for money. We have worked hard on the breakfast offering and it is a delight that this has paid off. I will ask maintenance to look at the issue with the fire door's as pointed out. We hope we can welcome you back when next in the area. Kind regards Johnathon Cairns Operations Manager

« small room »

Stayed here twice before and had no problems stayed last week and the room we were given was tiny and it was apprantly a luxory room which you pay and extra 35-40.00 for. My only advice to any one is when you go there ask for room 365 thats the biggest room and the one we have always been given. I was actually there to celebrate my engagement to my girlfriend. As far as I can see you pay the extra for a coffe machine and 2 cheap bottles of water in the fridge. All in all its a rip off . Really really disappointed. I will never stay there again. And to top it off you dont check out till 12 and the cleaner woke us up braying down the door at 9.30am

Johnathon C, Manager at Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel, responded to this review

« Overnight stay »

A well positioned hotel in the centre of town. Staff were very friendly and approachable, our room was spacious and clean with a fridge and a safe. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was enjoyable with a good selection. Good value for money.

« Perfect for our needs »

A very pleasant, well-decorated, well-run hotel within easy reach of the places we needed to be for the weekend. The rooms were clean, well-appointed and functional. The staff were excellent. Friendly and helpful.

« Nice rooms, nice hotel, »

The hotel location is really perfectly close to Darlington city centre. The design is very nice (a matter of personal taste of course) and the rooms are also beautiful and cosy. The only, really the only, negative point is the breakfast... The room was always way too cold and the toasters are way too slow.

Johnathon C, Manager at Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel, responded to this review

Hello Y2713DGpeterk, Thank you so much for such a glowing review of your stay at the hotel. I can confirm we have recently upgraded the equipment at breakfast and this has made a great difference. We look forward to a return visit in the future. Kind regards Johnathon and the Team

« Monday 24 August 2015 »

Located in the centre of Darlington, so was easy to access Room was very good, but very warm & would have benefited from some form of air conditioning - due to the city centre location noise of revellers (on a Monday Night) outside was a problem up to past 4am Breakfast very good Limited on site parking

Johnathon C, Manager at Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel, responded to this review

Hello 146ianf, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay at the Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel. We are really pleased you found that your room, the breakfast and the location to your liking. In terms of the temperature we do supply fans and these are available from reception at request. We are sorry that you where interrupted during the night but on your next visit please call ahead and we can allocate rooms away from the main street dependant on availability. Once again we appreciate all feedback so thank you and we would love to welcome you back to the hotel in the future. Kindest of regards Johnathon and the Team

« Disappointed again »

Room very small, bathroom even smaller with door knob in danger of getting stuck places it shouldn't! room way too hot with inability to cool sufficiently; bar completely lacking in atmosphere; mediocre at best service over breakfast - personal dislike of room being set up for lunch around me and staff without volume controls; staff not trained to handle complaints.

Dale N, Operations Manager at Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel, responded to this review

Hello Mark A, Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at the hotel. However a few of the issues raised do concern me and I would be very much appreciative if we could discuss in more detail? If you do have the time my contact number is 01325 380222 or if you could forward your arrival date and room number etc to opps@mercuredarlington.co.uk I would then be able to investigate in further detail. Once again thank you for taking the time to provide feedback and I look forward to hearing from you. Kindest of regards Johnathon and The Team
