About the hotel
The Rose and Crown at Romaldkirk is an AA red star hotel situated in the north east of England, close to Barnard Castle in Teesdale County Durham. Offering free broadband, 2 AA rosette restaurant and ample free parking. Discover the undiscovered.
Teesdale a land of stunning contrasts. High fells and lush meadow, whitewashed farms and stone built cottages, dramatic waterfalls, wild flowers and wonderful birdsong. The Rose and Crown is an 18th century coaching inn set on the middle of three village greens in a picture postcard village overlooking the stocks and water pump next to the Saxon church, known to the locals as ‘The Cathedral of the Dale’. Step inside the front door and discover lots of polished panelling, old beams, gleaming brasses, fresh flowers and maybe even the odd creaking stair. Savour the buzz of the bar; an oak settle with daily newspapers plus ‘the local rag’, old prints and carriage lamps with a crackling fire in the dog grate. Retreat to the quiet of the lounge; books, magazines, comfy wingchairs, the ticking of a grandfather clock, where you can enjoy a cup of tea or maybe one more brandy before bed. There are twelve en suite bedrooms, each different in style. Seven are located in the Main House, some with beams and antique furniture others with private sitting rooms. Five are located in the Courtyard offering a more modern and contemporary style. Delightful fabrics, comfortable beds and smart bathrooms, plus lots of extras including Molton Brown accessories and Bose music systems provide the perfect setting to ensure a restful nights sleep. Indulge yourself in the award winning restaurant. Polished oak panelling, crisp white tablecloths, candlelight and sparkling silver. A daily changing menu, delicious food – the table is yours for the night. Relax in the Brasserie with its intimate atmosphere, candles in waxy old bottles and big pictures. Guests of The Rose and Crown will enjoy a tasty meal whilst soaking up the surroundings. Forget your car and explore from the inn, footpaths leave in every direction from the village. Wander along the old railway line or maybe join the Teesdale Way as it winds its way along by the river. Nearby are old market towns and castles, the world famous Bowes Museum, spectacular Raby Castle, charming Eggleston Hall walled gardens. Further afield is Durham Cathedral, Beamish Open Air Museum, the Yorkshire Dales, the High Pennines of England, even Hadrian's Wall and lots lots more. Guests can indulge in their favourite pastimes in this area of outstanding natural beauty with superb walking in river valley or on the fells – The Pennine Way, Coast-to-Coast Walk, Teesdale Way and lots more walks are nearby. Try mountain biking par excellence or just gentle cycling along the local country lanes. There are wild flowers in abundance and fantastic bird watching, game shooting on some of the world’s most famous moors plus river and reservoir fishing.

We booked in here for a relaxing break after a pressurised couple of months at work and home.
The Rose and Crown was just what we needed; a beautiful location, a building full of character, warm comfortable accommodation, high quality food and attentive , friendly service. Too often when we have stayed in rooms converted from old stables, the rooms have been musty, damp and cold. Not here. Our room in the courtyard was well decorated with every facility you could want, warm, and very comfortable with plenty of hot water available. Rather than dining in the Restaurant we opted to eat in the Bar on both nights. Seated next to the window, warmed by a cosy, open wood fire we enjoyed well presented, good quality dinners served by friendly, attentive staff. We ate breakfast in the Restaurant, again with great service and of course wonderful food cooked to order rather than the tired, dried out excuse for breakfast you get in most chain hotels. Only a couple of minor improvements would have made our stay perfect: the pillows were a bit hard and the wi-fi, which had great connectivity in our room was not as good in the main hotel bar and restaurant.
Relaxing, Welcoming and Comfortable Stay
We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed everything about the Inn.
No negatives whatsoever. The staff were all very friendly, the room (although not huge) was well equipped with good quality toiletries, choice of bottled waters, bed so comfortable - I could go on. The dining room looked very welcoming in the evening but we chose to eat in the more relaxed bar - log fires etc, Same menu as dining room - beautifully cooked with good local choices.
I wish we could have stayed a little longer and will certainly return.
