Fortunately I visited The Croft Hotel to attend a business network meeting with Network North. The coffee is soo good. I admit I only knew the hotel by the name The Croft 'Spa' Hotel as it was named many years ago. The name change is to mark the change of ethos, style and surroundings - all for the better.

As I walk from the rear car park of the hotel I'm impressed with the layout. Inside The Croft Hotel is spacious and modern with traditional hints like a slate wall and wood logs stacked in the fireplace. The environment inside is a lovely place to be, especially compared to the Costa Coffee's of this world. As a business person I spend some time in coffee shops like Costas to get Wi-Fi and Starbucks to catch up on emails and meetings etc; cramped, noisy often without parking, they are becoming almost counter efficient facilities for business people like me. Therefore I am always on the lookout for a good place to meet, get Wi-Fi, have a coffee, catch up and refresh. This is now mine business meeting place in Darlington.

I'd recommend popping to The Croft Hotel for your next business meeting or email catch up. Easy parking, quiet environment good Wi-Fi.

It's got free parking, lots of parking including on the front, its close to Darlington, spacious inside, clean and tidy - a nice place to be and the staff smile at you.

Cost of coffee and tea etc is £3. Sandwiches and lunch served from a Bacon bun to Cottage pie. I had the best ever pea and ham soup ever made in the history of pea and ham soup - I digress.

I called in to meet a client this week and we had two exceptional coffees. We sat in the hotel reception area with a Cafe Latte and a caffe Americano for £2.50. Sky TV to watch while I waited. Peaceful and relaxing place to be, unlike Costa Coffee.

Free fast Wi-Fi good speeds at 12.49 mbps download but only .55 mbps upload. Did the job.

FUNNY COMMENT: The staff smiled when I was there last but this may change once they get to know me!

FINAL WORD: I noticed the Gastropub too. They have a steak night Thursday, Fish night Friday from 5.30 if you fancy an early evening meeting with food. I'm going to try it.
