Positive Reviews


Wonderful central location in Darlington

Previous guests have typically considered the Houndgate Townhouse to offer the ideal location for exploring Darlington. Positioned right in the heart of the town centre, the hotel is a short walk from many restaurants, shops, bars and attractions like the Darlington Civic Theatre and Darlington Markets.


Rooms finished to an excellent standard

Thanks to their unique, modern and highly polished style in every area, the rooms at the hotel are finished to a magnificent standard - according to virtually all former visitors. Moreover, the rooms are said to be kept spotlessly clean and tidy.


Commendable service from staff

The staff members provided an admirable level of service for essentially every past guest that stayed at the Houndgate Townhouse. Along with a really warm and welcoming nature, the hotel's personnel were typically described as remarkably attentive in helping whenever needed.

Negative Reviews


Tea or coffee not available in rooms

Whilst only a minor problem in the grand scheme of things, the rooms at the Houndgate Townhouse reportedly do not include tea/coffee making facilities - something that was disappointing for various former visitors. With that said, the hotel will apparently supply fresh tea or coffee if requested.


No parking available

One noticeable negative about the hotel is the omission of any on-site parking. As a result, previous guests that travelled to the accommodation in their own vehicle had to make use of nearby public parking facilities.


Soundproofing not ideal

Based on overall feedback, the rooms at the Houndgate Townhouse are apparently far from the best when it comes to sound isolation. This inadequate soundproofing, combined with the hotel's central and bustling location, has caused overbearing noise to be an issue on numerous occasions for past visitors.
