Stayed here a couple of times this summer, and have used other Durham colleges in the past. The accommodation is fairly basic, but clean and well maintained. Some rooms are a fair walk from reception and the dining hall. En suite rooms available. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided in the room, there is a radio but no TV.... More

Stayed in a twin en-suite with my Mum for one night. I'd been a Durham student 13 years ago in a neighbouring college, so had a fair idea of the standard of accommodation we were to receive, but we were pleasantly surprised. Spotlessly clean, spacious and not a "beaten-up" room like some student digs can be. Admittedly, no TV, but... More

First experience of staying in student accommodation during holiday period. It was clean and well kept with very good breakfast. Staff were friendly and there was a good atmosphere. Only drawbacks were lack of WiFi and TVs in rooms but the price was very reasonable for what was on offer

This place clearly has no overall management and certainly staff are not focused on the paying customer. From overstaffed breakfast (8-9am!) where gossip but not service was on the agenda to the grumpy night porter who knew 'nothing about' my room change, this was not a good experience. I was put in a room in a block where workmen started... More

Stayed here for a conference, for which the location was convenient. As you might expect from the name,the rooms are clean but bashed-up student accommodation. The walls and lintels were banged up and clearly hadn't been painted or repaired in a while. There was a lot of water damage around the shower area. Wifi does not extend as far as... More

I stayed here while attending a conference. The location is good. I walked into Durham centre in about 15 minutes (one road). On arrival reception was closed, but I found a very friendly security guard who let me in. I'll be honest, I sturggle with anyone selling this as anything other than student accommodation. I expected the single bed, no... More

I stayed here for a few days while at a conference held at the science campus in Durham. It was a good location - 5 mins walk away from the science campus, close to the city centre and right next to the botanic gardens. For student digs, this was pretty decent. The ensuite room was quite big, with tea-making facilities... More
