Fantastic service. Staff even got us vouchers for 25% off admission to Beamish museum which we were doing the following day. Loved our stay, loved the... More

Stayed here on Saturday 18th July 2015 for one night with my fiancé. Room 202. The rooms are clean and tidy and considering you are a stones throw away from the Slug & lettuce no noise from the pubs was heard in the room. However I was woken up at 4.15 am by the people staying in the room above.... More

Three of us stayed here for one night on route from York to Teesside and the staff welcome was top class . The rooms are typical clean and basic but the excellent warm and friendly welcome continued at our evening meal. Cameron and the team could not do enough for us and took time to explain the menu happily switching... More

Stayed for more than a week in early July at this hotel and offer my personal opinion on it. Once again the absolute major plus is the staff, as ever polite and helpful. The rooms I stayed in were ok in respect to basic amenities,clean, enough storage, air con and flat screen tv with a bathroom with shower over bath.My... More

Eight of us stayed for a couple of nights on a short getaway. 3 rooms on 3 different floors and the rooms are of course much of a muchness. The staff were exceedingly pleasant throughout our stay and reflect very well on the chain. Breakfast was worth the cost particularly as the children ate for £1. On the day we... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this hotel in mid July 2015. The central position is excellent to see all the sights of Durham: no need for a car, bus or taxi.........just walk. The hotel is in a newer part of Durham, but the old historic part is just minutes away on foot. The staff were all amazing:... More

What a lovely hotel this is, modern and clean, great staff, great breakfast, it was right in the centre. My son is in a wheelchair and we did have concerns as Durham is hilly, but round the corner from hotel in the multi storey is a lift to main centre level. would defiantly stay here again

The in-house restaurant provides great selections for dinner. Meal deals are available that provides a fixed price for the combination of dinner & breakfast that give savings and good value for money. Centrally located for access to the city for able bodied visitors. For disabled or gentle walkers there are approximately 60 steps to be negotiated to get into the... More
