I loved everything about my stay. The staff were extremely professional and nothing was an issue no matter how tedious it might’ve seemed. I could not recommend the Darling high enough to anyone I know. All staff treat you as if you were royalty and the rooms were extremely well put together. Every thing is extremely clean and always well presented

I paid much more than I normally would for the penthouse complete with a billiard table room. You can understand I was a bit disappointed when we say a massive cut in the felt on the table taped up with standard masking tape...

Not sure if it’s due to COVID but not many staff around. Had to wait to check in before someone showed up then had to wait to get car until someone showed up. Lovely clean room and great bathroom. Service wise just didn’t feel like your usual 5 star.

Dear Mark Thanks for your feedback, We are sorry to hear in the delay in service at The Darling Hotel. At times team members can be assisting other guests on the floors or on the phones however there should be someone always present on the driveway. I do hope you didn't have to wait to long to be served. Thanks again for your review and we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.

The total hotel is the most well designed and furnished I've visited. Beautiful colours and textures used inside common areas and the rooms. Oozing luxury and taste with unique ness. Could want for nothing more..during covid the staff adapted and our stay was exceptional. Would recommend for adult staycation..
