The King's Head Hotel in the Priestgate area of the North East market town will re-open in September after an £8m refurb programme following a devastating fire four years ago.

The venue's owners, Newcastle-based Cairn Group, operate 17 hotels across the UK and have increased the size of The King's Head Hotel to 86 en-suite bedrooms.

A ballroom, meetings space and a ground floor café and first floor Italian and European restaurant with an adjoining cocktail bar have been added to the hotel and the team have now begun a recruitment programme ahead of the re-opening. 

The hotel, previously known as The King's Hotel, was totally destroyed by fire in August 2008. A spokesperson for Cairn Group said: "We have spared no expense in transforming The King’s Head Hotel into a stylish and contemporary venue, which we hope will be as popular with Darlington residents as it will be with visitors to the town."
