The opening of the 80–bed hotel follows hot on the heels of restaurants Nando’s, Bella Italia, The Woollen Mill Hungry Horse pub and Prezzo all opening in the last month. Further eateries are scheduled to open at the town’s new leisure scheme in the next few weeks, alongside a state-of-art nine-screen cinema.

Simon Hawkins, Development Director with Urban & Civic, the property development company behind the leisure scheme, said Premier Inn’s opening was a big day for Feethams. “From day one, we’ve known that having a great new hotel here would be a real boon, not just to Feethams but also to the town of Darlington,” said Simon. “The level of investment shows just how much confidence everyone has in the success of this development, and we’re excited that Premier Inn chose to be a part of it.”
Creating 28 jobs, the new Premier Inn signals the beginning of the final phase of openings across the leisure scheme, in the run-up to the grand opening event in a few weeks’ time. “The Feethams development is one that we are all incredibly proud of,” said Simon. “We have just a small amount of work left to do before the remainder of our tenants open for business.”

Aaron Beswick, Operations Manager with Premier Inn, said he was thrilled to be opening the brand new hotel to guests. “We are very excited to be a part of this fantastic development,” he said. “Feethams has got everyone in the town talking, and myself and the team are looking forward to bringing our renowned value and quality to the people of Darlington.”

Simon Hawkins said that an announcement would be made very soon about the grand opening of the leisure scheme. “We’re in the process of planning a special event to celebrate the grand opening of Feethams as a whole,” he said. “We’re all very excited and are sure it will be a huge hit with the people of Darlington.”
