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

Booked bed and breakfast for one night for myself and my partner in August. The check in was easy and the room was beautiful and bathroom was a good size. 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

This is a lovely hotel 2 minutes from the centre of Durham. Helpful & friendly staff. Clean & comfy rooms. Perfect for a nice weekend break. Plenty of choice for breakfast. Full English or a healthy choice and they are more than happy to cook to order, we had poached eggs. Would highly recommend this.

We were greeted with a smile and as it was a special anniversary the staff went above and beyond which made the weekend very special. Room was clean and modern, overlooking the cityscape. Amenities in the room were great. The spa and health club facilities were... More
