Darlington Hotel Restaurant

Following the most recent changes in guidelines, we have taken the difficult decision to close the Hotel to accommodation, dining and event bookings for the duration of the current restrictions. 

Should your booking take place before 1st May 2020, a member of the team will be in contact to discuss your options in terms of postponing or cancelling this.

For bookings taking place following this date, either that have already been made or you would like to make, please contact Jade in relation to events on events.darlingtonhotel@bannatyne.co.uk, or Dawn for accommodation enquiries on reception.darlingtonhotel@bannatyne.co.uk. For general queries, please contact John, on gm.darlingtonhotel@bannatyne.co.uk

We look forward to celebrating all of your special occasions and welcoming our loyal guests back, as soon as we are able to.

In the meantime keep safe, and thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
