I was given a voucher for 2 people as an early Christmas present so I decided to treat my mam as well, from walking in we were greeted by friendly staff, Dyanne was lovely we were served our hot drinks then our food came included salmon, cheese savoury, turkey and cranberry sandwiches, mini quiches, chocolate cake, amaretto mini biscuits, lemon torte, macrons, warm fruit scones with jam and clotted cream and hot roasted chestnuts. Staff could not do enough for us, they seemed to love there job! Well worth the money! Would definitely recommend, I will 100% be returning soon. More...

I visited the Croft Hotel for the first time, for my cousins wedding party. And WOW. The dance floor was gorgeous with sparkles and light up. The decor was beautiful with a great space and lay out of a room. The bar was great, fully stocked and staff welcoming and friendly. The food was gorgeous to. From a buffet option there was a great variety and quality. We happened to walk through the main part of the hotel on exiting the party and the interior has been designed beautifully. Modern with a feel of, classic yorkshire old school pub, with fur throws and modern furnishings. A reall feel of "posh" yet comfortable surrounds it. Great place, would highly recommend and plan to re visit. More...

We stayed on a offer of £99 for Dinner, Bed & Breakfast with a complementary bottle of wine. I booked this direct with the hotel and also received an upgrade to a Superior room (No 3). The staff were very welcoming and attentive, and the room was top drawer. Looking around the hotel as a whole, I think it might have had a recent facelift as the carpets seemed new, the decor was fresh and clean and it didn't look 'old/tired' anywhere. The bar and reception were all dressed up for Xmas and with the modern log fire burning it did feel warm and cozy.||The 3 course meal was fantastic...proper home cooked food, breakfast was the same, being served to your table and NOT the buffet style. ||For the offer we were on it was hard to beat. Definitely going back More...

We went to the Croft Hotel for their Festive Afternoon tea and we were not disappointed. There were savoury tarts to begin with, which were very tasty. This was followed by finger sandwiches which comprised of Turkey with Cranberry, Smoked Salmon & Cheese and Egg & Cheese, all very nice. A lemon & cream sorbet in a jar and then on to the Scones with butter, strawberry jam, together with a mountain of clotted cream, very delicious. The next items were the cakes, we had roulade, ginger star biscuits, and millionaires shortbread cakes. A terrific assortment all washed down with an endless supply of pots of tea. The room was very pleasant, with Xmas crackers on the tables, a roaring log fire and the staff were very pleasant and helpful. Would really recommend the venue. More...

On arrival check in was handled quickly and professionally. Booked a table for dinner and given key card and information about the facilities. |The room and the hotel in general has been spruced up recently, judging by the smell of fresh paint. The Room #19 was clean and well appointed. ( only negative it was very hot the 1st night...managed to turn radiator off for our 2nd night but the window in the room doesn't open)|After returning from our afternoon in Darlo we got ready for dinner.|The restaurant was quiet (later told most of the guests were attending a wedding at Rockliffe Hall)|We ordered a starter to share, Black pudding and bacon stack..which was very good. Then mains Chicken Ballotine and the chefs own Steak and Croft ale pie...both were excellent and the portions are very generous. We had sticky toffee pudding to finish...again excellent. The service and the food were 5. We then retired to the lounge and sat on the sofas in front of the real log fire...could have happily gone to sleep. We literally had the hotel to ourselves. On our second day adventuring out, once again came back to an empty hotel so set up camp by the fire and have a few Sunday afternoon drinks. The staff on duty, David and Diane both took time out to have a chat with us, serve us drinks and to stoke the fire. Totally pampered.|I would like to thank the hard working team for making our stay so enjoyable...already planning a return.|Would I recomnend-definitelty.|Would I return-in a heartbeat.|Wishing The Croft a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year |Peter and Lynne | More...

Having stayed for the past three weeks working in the Hurworth area i found The Croft Hotel amazing, it is always hard to find the right place when you are working away from home, i found all the staff hard working and very pleasant especially Ben he couldn't do enough for you, 10 out of 10 for the service, The food was very nice i had gone through the whole menu during my stay of 12 nights the homemade pies were very nice, the burgers also and were made fresh, but my favourite was the pork and leek sausages with onion gravy they were to die for ! ! I didn't have one bad meal during my stay and found the breakfast exceptional also, i just want to say a big thank to all the staff at The Croft Hotel for making my stay Home From Home, i will certainly return if i am working in the area again, well recommended|||| Thanks Again, a very satisfied guest Tom Rafferty.

Hotel is set next to the river in a quiet village although the road outside is busy. Rooms are comfy and set mainly on first floor. If you have mobility problems there is no lift and ask for a room near the stairs, we had quite a trek to our room along the corridors. Staff are friendly, food is good but not much on the menu if you are watching your weight. I would stay here again. The only criticism is the windows in our room need cleaning on the inside and the breakfast room needs dusting on the central wall and the top of the drop down lights. Perhaps I'm being a bit picky!

Full English breakfast in with rate of room, if I had paid extra for this I would have complained more, egg not cooked and staff complained of where we sat, said area not set for breakfast even though the table was set for breakfast including menu and cutlery and condiments, So was told this on three separate occasions.

The Croft Hotel is an lovely hotel to stay in. We stayed for dinner, bed and breakfast. The options for both dinner and breakfast were good. The dinner menu was a select menu but very easy to choose a meal.A large selection of breakfast food were available. All fresh food. The two staff serving were very friendly, easy to chat too. They were busy however we did not have to wait a long period of time for our dinner. More...

Visited the Croft with my lovely wife. We booked the Dinner Bed and Breakfast deal. We were greeted warmly by the night manager and barman who promptly got us checked in and arranged a reservation for dinner. ||The room was clean and well presented. Had a fridge, ironing facilities and a wall mounted tv and very comfortable double bed. Spacious ensuite bathroom, with modern decor. Was a little warm in the room but this can be forgiven given it was 29° outside and staff were very obliging in furnishing the room with a fan. ||We went for dinner at about 6.30, we were greeted again by Ben (I think that was his name - the guy mentioned in previous reviews with Tattoos). He was extremely polite got us seated quickly and our drinks and meal order taken. ||Starters came and were brill we both had Crispy Belly Pork. Mains again did not disappoint. Rib eye steak and chunky twice cooked chips... Yum. ||During mains there was of course the usual saturday night "entertainment". There was an elderly couple, in the restaurant who had found fault with their meal. These things happen the guys at the hotel did there utmost despite the protests from the couple themselves. At least one of the couple had ordered steak and twice cooked chips and the complaint I believe was to do with them being overcooked?! The hotel staff could not do enough for the couple and the more they tried to help the louder this couple complained to the point other diners actually stopped eating their meal and spoke to the couple to try and defend the hotel staff. They were rude and personal to and about the staff. The staff were very unfairly treated.||The whole time the staff stayed cool and calm and polite and still managed to keep other diners food and drinks coming in a timely manner. This I think shows just how good the service at The Croft is. Well done guys.||That aside great desert. Great service despite being under pressure.||Breakfast was great. Excellent variety of Teas, Coffee's and fruit juices. Cooked breakfast to cater for all tastes. Was a great variety of pastries. ||Checkout would have been quicker has we not arrived after the couple from the previous night (and if I had remembered that there is no room 27). They of course raised their complaint as any disgruntled guest had the right to do and declined a goodwill gesture of money off their stay. Bearing in mind they were only being charged Dinner Bed and breakfast rate the same as our selves the hotel surely can't be making much anyway off that particular rate. ||And Nathan... we liked your "floral shirt".||The rest of the stay was uneventful and we had a great time. Thank you for a great stay. More...

It's not often I get such a pleasant surprise when I pull up outside a hotel and I can see immediately that it's an old building, then walk inside and get a real wow impression. It's easy to put a lick of paint on the outside, and the same inside, but it takes attention to detail, skill, craftsmanship and real, professional staff to get it right. The Croft have most definitely got it right.||Everyone who I met that was associated with The Croft was immeasurably proud of this wonderful hotel and rightly so. I stayed in room No 3 and only had the one night as I was on business, but the next time I'm in the North East I'll certainly be back. More...

Me and my wife had our wedding reception here last year so we thought it would be nice to return for our anniversary. At £9. 95 for Sunday carvery it was a great price for the quality of food. Weren’t shy with the meat, the selection of veg was great and you can get what you want. Roasties were amazing with a rosemary sprinkle on them, loads of big ones for me! Mushy peas were a pleasant surprise, and the rest was cooked perfectly. Will definitely be returning as it’s one of the best I’ve had, and I’m very fussy with Sunday lunch ! Very friendly and attentive staff. More...

Sent an email last week about afternoon tea with my friends. Quick response, explained there would be 4 adults two babies which would need high chairs. When we arrived the high chairs were placed at the table ready and waiting for us. Staff are brilliant! Kept coming to make sure we had enough tea/coffee see if we needed anything else, can’t fault the staff. My only problem was, in my email I said there will be a vegetarian- which is me. So I asked if the vegetarian sandwiches could be on a separate plate or just separated from the meat ones. When I received my sandwiches there was a tuna sandwich on my plate. I’m not a pescatarian so I don’t eat meat or fish. I took the sandwich off my plate and didn’t kick up a fuss but I was upset about this therefore unable to eat the sandwich touching the tuna sandwich. I understand people may think it’s petty but I take my vegetarianism very seriously and I was annoyed that I wasn’t asked if I ate fish or not and they just assumed. Other than that it was lovely, warm cheese scones were to die for and everything else for that matter! Thank you for having us More...

Room was good - had recently been refurbished. Was away from the road so nice and quiet. Nice bathroom if a little small. The drain didn't work very well in the shower so it drained very slowly and the tray filled with water . We stayed two nights and the cleaner failed to provide more toiletries for the second night so I had to request them from reception.||||We ate in the restaurant the first night and the a la carte menu was very good and the food was of a high standard, though the starters could have done to be hotter.||||Breakfast was not quite so good. There was no fresh fruit salad although this was advertised on the menu. Service as rather slow. On the second day my partner ordered smoked haddock, hollandaise sauce and poached egg and was brought haddock (not smoked) with a tomato. She sent it back and it evntually came back with the sauce abd egg but it took an age!||||Service generally was a bit slow and it was sometimes difficult to find staff, though they were all very helpful.||||Plenty of free car parking and the village of Croft is lovely!||||Overall this hotel was good, especially for the weekend deal we got, but it failed to get the small details right that could make all the difference.

Totally forgot to write a review for New Year's Eve Gala Dinner... But after seeing the previous person's review I feel I have to put my review across. . I attended this evening with some family members as we had booked the previous year when it was the Michael Jackson tribute which was excellent so we decided to book again for 2018. We arrived at the hotel and were greeted warmly by the staff who were very well presented. When we walked in the room to be seated we were blown away, the room was stunning and very festive. Firstly when everyone was seated the dj announced what we could expect from the evening. We were pleased to see it was the same dj as the previous year as he played our requests when asked the year before plus we have also attended a wedding at the croft when he was there so we knew we were in for a good night. The food was absolutely gorgeous, fresh, plenty of it and beautifully presented. The staff were always on hand if we needed anything. The bar was busy but we didn't wait too long to be served. Now on to the entertainment. The singer sang a wide range of songs from different era's, she was not the best I have heard but she was certainly was not the worst. On the table there were request cards for us to hand to the dj with our songs we wanted him to play if any. My family had fun deciding what we wanted to be played and laughed at some of our choices. There was a slight blip just before midnight when the dj announched the New Year which was a few minutes early. But hey we are human and mistakes can happen but it was quickly rectified. We all sang Auld Lang Syne in a circle holding hands which we enjoyed and the atmosphere was very partylike. I noticed everyone else was in good spirits too. After that the dj played some of our requests from the cards. I had picked Queen - Dont stop me now as it has a special meaning to me and was pleased that it was played for me. Just after 12.30 we were exhausted and left to go to our room as we were staying overnight. We had an absolutely fabulous night. We have already said we will be returning for New Year's Eve 2019. The next morning we had the most delicious breakfast cooked to perfection, plenty of tea and coffee. Some of the staff that were there the previous night were also there to serve breakfast and they were still extremely polite and welcoming. We can't wait to return to the Croft Hotel for our next family occasion which will most likely be for Mother's Day for lunch. More...

Stayed here for 1 night en route to the Lake District. The decor is very trendy and it looks lovely. Check in was fine. Our room was very large and nicely done with a really nice shower room. TV did not work so we were going to call reception and tell them. No phone!? We went down to reception and told them re TV. Someone came immediately and sorted that out. We asked why no phone and were told that people steal them! Just a bit of a worry if there's an emergency as I had no mobile signal either. The decor whilst very nice, is a little let down by things like the windows which are in very poor condition. We find this frequently in older hotels.||We had dinner in the restaurant and found the food and service excellent as was breakfast the following morning.||The only other thing was that we were kept awake by people talking very loudly at 2.30 am for an hour or so until I shouted to them to be quiet. I would have called reception...no phone! They were also coming and going outside, I assume to smoke, which meant the corridor door banged every time. This was also a problem in the early morning. We did mention it and were told that maintenance would look at it. Overall I would stay again. More...

Late Rooms advertised a double room at The Croft Hotel which booked with them on that morning. As the Whit Bank Holiday weather forecast was so good we decided to for that day and The Croft sounded just what we were looking for within an hours drive from home. ||So we set out to arrive for the advertised on Late Rooms check in time of 2pm. We arrived on a lovely sunny day at old fashioned coaching inn facade -which is what originally was when built back in 1825 - to be welcomed with a surprisingly swish and modern interior . The best of both old and new. So far so good.||At this point we were informed the hotels double rooms were fully booked and check in wasn't until 3 pm. To be fair the hotels deputy manager had been trying to let us know since they received the booking referral from Late Rooms earlier in the day. The receptionist explained Late Rooms should not have sold these rooms as there was none available. The receptionist though realised we were the innocent party in all this and offered a free telephone service so we could contact Late Rooms. After holding the line it was apparent the staff at Late Rooms had also taken a holiday too as there was no answer . Meanwhile the Croft Hotel staff had checked out the Late Rooms site and found they were still offering double rooms at The Croft for that night. And advertising check-in at 2pm.||At this point the Croft staff did everything possible to assist. Although check in was not due for another hour , they organised with housekeeping a twin room to be made available and this was allocated to us with a complimentary breakfast as an apology even though The Croft was at fault.||The room was lovely , clean, spacious, very comfortable and very modern with a great bathroom and walk-in shower. Room 22 if your wondering.||A lovely and peaceful nights sleep in was followed by a great freshly cooked breakfast in the morning.||All the staff did their upmost to make you welcome and put right what wasn't their wrong. Great service , excellent weather and lovely relaxing overnight stay. ||Would stay here again and recommend this hotel to others. Just be very cautious if using Late Rooms for your booking.||Mark and Anne Taylor Sunderland , England More...

The room was comfortable with sitting area as well as bed area.Bathroom spacious but needed a non slip mat in shower and somewhere to sit down (eg plastic stool) in dressing area of bathroom would be a great improvement Very useful to have bus stops outside hotel!rather a lot of stairs for me....
