I travel frequently to Durham, and this is my 1st choice hotel every time. The staff are always friendly and the rooms are well equipped with large television and fast internet. Breakfast is always good. It has a very good central location and a large car park.

The hotel is lovely and in the perfect location.Everything was clean and the staff were very nice. Unfortunately there is a down side, well two actually. Firstly, paying for parking is a real no-no and secondly the food in the restaurant, in the evening, wasn't very nice. Breakfasts were great.

Breakfast experience not good - and would not recommend. I decided to try the breakfast at the hotel with a view to using the hotel on a regular basis.

It is situated by the river and about a 5 mins walk from the city. Nothing bad... More

Arrived 8.30 pm and given upgrade to suite! Yippee! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff at reception, bars and restaurant. Hotel spotlessly clean and all amenities in room. Used the leisure centre early on Sunday morning and that too was spotless! Lovely hotel, lovely friendly staff and great location.
