Barnard Castle is a great place to visit and the Cricketers Arms is well located. Room is clean, modern, comfortable and all staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

We loved staying here, but you may have different expectations, but what i can say, is that this was one of the most welcoming and warm places we have ever stayed. Things we now know - breakfast is not currently included (no food is served) and the pub below is closed on Mondays (we stayed Sunday night) - but Barny has plenty of other places to choose from for brekkie The room was lovely, clean, warm and well proportioned. Beth at reception was professional and welcoming and showed us our room and shared all the info we needed easily and quickly. She was a great person to check in with. Tom and Amanda (management) were accessible, visible and friendly. nothing was too much trouble for any of the team. Some staff on their day off were patronising the facilities in the evening we stayed and were also very friendly. The place is old, so single glazing, which didn't cause us issues. Overall we had a really nice time, with a sociable and friendly team and felt like we were really well looked after

Nice place to visit.
Checked in with no problem by a friendly manager called Tom. They have a good quiz on in the pub on Wednesdays with reasonably priced drinks. There is no food option due to corona staffing problems but this is industry wide. You cannot get takeaway deliveries in Barnard Castle but this is not the pubs fault but you can get an eye test like Dominic Cummins.

Barnard Castle Stay
Helpful, friendly staff, the Cricketers Arms was perfectly situated for all there is to see and do, clean comfortable rooms, the only downside was you could hear traffic from 05.30hrs.
