You can be assured that you will be the only Princess at the Castle on your special day as we only do one wedding per day ensuring you and your wedding party are the only VIP's in the hotel.
We believe we are one of the best value hotels in Darlington. We are a highly rated 3 star hotel and operate from Darlington's only grade 1 listed building and one of the few castle hotels in the North East of England
Although we offer free wifi throughout our hotel, we only get up to 1 MBPS from the BT exchange. We are a 12th century castle with six foot thick walls which unfortunately has an effect on our wifi signal. The wifi is ok for downloading emails and general surfing of the web, but not really very good for streaming videos. Although we are the perfect location if you want to get away from it all!
We have various standards of accommodation, including business rooms in the west wing, castle doubles and twins, four posters and four poster suites with double Jacuzzi baths. All of our rooms have a minimum of 19 inch TV's, ipod docking stations as well as tea and coffee making facilities and toiletries.
All this located in an authentic 12th century castle in 18 acres of lawns and woodlands, yet only a 5 minute drive from the A1(M). This is in addition to an on site hair and beauty salon.
