This is a very nice hotel, beautifully placed for the centre of Durham, and with a large car park where the spaces are well above average in size. We had a "Superior" double room which was quite large and nicely appointed, even down to the large (And very comfortable) four poster bed. The hotel is equipped with a fitness suite... More

The room was fab overlooking the castle and river with 2 double beds, bathroom, desk and sitting room with sofa and tv. Staff were... More

We stayed in the coach house. We had two rooms on the top floor. They were a very good size. quiet, very comfy beds and lovely pillows. Didn't hear a soul! It is a short walk across the car park to the facilities, which may not suit everyone. However, this is off-set by the peace and relatively large and possibly... More

We had long known this hotel from living in or near Durham, but on a visit for a 'luxury' weekend recently, some years after leaving the city, we found it much busier and less exclusive than we expected. Not that anything was bad, but it was all a bit of a hassle - not quite the exclusive place we were... More

We had booked some massages in for when we got there but got massively let down. Claire the duty manager did all she could to make the experience better as this was my... More

Just spent 2 very enjoyable days at Durham Marriott Hotel. Modern reception with friendly obliging staff. As requested, our room was overlooking the river in the modern Riverside block. It was spacious, comfortably furnished, with a huge bed and lovely big bathroom. The breakfast was excellent, lots of choice and all nice and hot and frequently replenished. The location of... More

I met a business colleague here for lunch only, so that is all that this review covers. On arriving I was disappointed to find that the hotel now charges for car parking for hotel users - and not only that, but you have to pay in advance for x hours. When one doesn't know how long one will be, one... More

Thank you for taking the time to post your review.

It is my expectation that cutlery would always be served with food and I... More
