Why We Love It

  • This towncentre hotel is housed in a landmark Victorian building
  • It's a 15-minute walk from the Head of Steam railway museum
  • The "great medieval city" (Fodor's) of Durham is a 40-minute drive away
  • There's a bar, and a traditional restaurant with town views


Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel is in the centre of Darlington. Its grand Victorian facade overlooks the town's market square and its statue of MP and railway pioneer Joseph Pease.

St Cuthbert’s Church, dating from the 12th century, is five minutes' walk away, while Head of Steam, Darlington’s railway museum, is a 15-minute walk away. Richmond Castle, which offers sweeping views of the Yorkshire Dales from its 100-foot-high Norman keep, is a 25-minute drive away and Durham, known for its "beautiful Romanesque
cathedral", "huge castle" and "cobweb of hilly, cobbled streets" (Lonely Planet) is, 40 minutes' drive away. Newcastle's buzzing city centre takes around 50 minutes to reach by car from the hotel.

The hotel has a bar serving cocktails and light bites and a grill restaurant offering hearty dishes and afternoon tea. The hotel occupies a grand Victorian building overlooking the market square and a modern building with an entrance on Priestgate.

Guestrooms are decorated in neutral tones, with nature-themed
black-and-white photos. All have free Wi-Fi, a TV and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Room service is available.
