Lovely hotel with polite staff and good food, would definately use again. The swimming pool and spa area were very clean, though the pool edge could feel a little slippery. The Filini restaurant felt very comfortable and the food was very good.

By paying the extra £33 we got breakfast, free car-parking, free movies and complimentary drinks from 5.30-7. Well worth the extra but wouldn't have wanted to have paid the... More

Were lucky enough to stay in this Hotel during the Brass Band Festival. It was ideal for going back and forward to the town centre. Service was very good enjoyed our meals and made full use of the spa.

Had a perfect weekend away. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the train station but is a good 10 minute walk into the centre. The hotel was lovely and free use of the spa which is open late into the evening is lovely. We had a room on the first floor which was spacious, clean and had all... More

The breakfast had a good choice and was not too busy as we went on a Monday evening. I would definately return to this hotel as it was good value... More

Fantastic hotel, very modern with great service. Beautiful views of the river from one side so as a tip ask for a river facing room. Was recognised as a club carlson member and received a free upgrade too. 4th floor is excellent

I have to be honest. i have never been in a hotel like this. The room is big with all the comforts you need. The italian restaurant at the ground floor offers a good quality of italian food and the position is great to visit the amazing Durham city centre just few minutes walking. And what about the breakfast? I... More
