I have stayed at the Hall Garth 4 times now and have never had a bad experience. Stayed in several other hotels over the years but this is definately the best one ever. It is a real country hotel with all the facilities but not too far out in the middle of nowhere if you get what I mean. There is a golf course attached which is great but we prefer to just lounge about, have a good rest. The rooms are spacious and well equipped. Some rooms are located over the courtyard in the stables but these are just as good as the main house apart from you have to walk over for breakfast in the mornings. The pool, jacuzzi and sauna are brilliant for relaxing in the afternoons. In the evening there is a bar across the courtyard for a few drinks and pub meals if you want to keep the costs down. This is also cheaper than drinking all night in the hotel bar. The hotel restaurant is spacious and warm. Food is Al a carte, excellent everytime, the meals are definately the highlight of a weekend stay here. If you are doing this option then be sure to ask for dinner/bed and breakfast pricing because it works out cheaper than adding the restaurant meal on later. They serve very tasty, resonably priced wine too. Coffee afterwards in the lounge is a must. We have been here for new years eve once and it was a brilliant night. I would recommend to telephone at the last minute and ask if they have any DBB deals on as you can often get a really good deal especially if you ring the same day.
Quite literally the BEST hotel I have ever stayed in (and there's been a few!). This is a must for anyone looking for a quality hotel with easy access to all local attractions. Excellently sited for an "in-betweenie", just off the A1, Hall Garth provides easy access to Darlington and it's shops and bars. For the outdoor type, it is a great base for the North York moors and the coast. Newcastle and Northumberland are just up the A1 for the more adventurous traveller, with shops, bars, clubs, museums, and all the sites the North East boasts! The hotel itself offers a friendly service with excellent standards. The gym allows you to work up a sweat before dining in the excellent Hugo's or perhaps a Chinese banquet in The Stables. The golf course and swimming pool offer a more leisurely persuit. The food is fantastic and very reasonable! Served by lovely staff with excellent local knowledge. If you are served breakfast by a Turkish waiter, be sure to order some eggs, it's his speciality! Room service is available throughout the night for the late arrivals. The hotel is often used for business and conference facilities yet still caters for families and travellers alike. For a real experience, upgrade to one of the suites. Situated in the old part of the building, they used to be the family bedrooms and boast some fantastic original features - wonky floors and four-poster beds! All-in-all, this is a very good hotel and well worth the money.
