“Outstanding golf, restaurants, bar and staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This was one of the highlights of our trip, we stumbled upon Durham from a waiter we talked to in Wilmington and we were so pleased to get there and relax for a few days.
Golf course is A+, GPS on the carts was fantastic! Staff in pro shop very friendly, we bought new golf shoes and upon return to NZ we have been raving about the DUKE- the whole complex was very good.

Room Tip: Dont get the suite that overlooks the Bull Durham bar outside area, its noisy at night.

Beautiful hotel, location, ambience, food and friendly staff. Disappointed that they've relaxed the dress code in their elegant dining room. Shorts and flip flops shouldn't be allowed, as well as small children who would probably rather be at Chucky Cheese, anyway.

This place is remarkable. Upscale with impeccable service, from the doorman to the wait staff. We were here for a Duke football camp in June and returned for a game and the bellhop, Jun, remembered our names. We were treated so well, we did not want to leave. We have stayed in suites costing over $4,000 per night, but prefer this quiet little place. The only criticism I have is that the jacuzzi didn't work this time which was disappointing to my husband and kids. The breakfast is awesome as are the food and drinks in the Bull Durham Bar.

Some minor issues like poor shower pressure but an enjoyable experience in a spectacular setting.What was particularly awesome were the front desk staff and the front door/ reception team..always willing to go out of their way and most helpful.

We stayed here when dropping off our son at Duke. The advance reviews were superb, and we were not disappointed. The service was outstanding, the facilities superb, and the setting was beautiful (and a short walk to west campus). The only negative was the free wifi, which was iffy on the first day and failed completely on the second day. Otherwise, our stay was perfect.

We had another fabulous stay at the Washington Duke Inn... I would highly recommend. Take a late night dip in the pool after dinner - it is an indoor pool with a hot tub in it - nice to take a swim and then just ease the muscles in the hot tub. But watch out... the walking path is 3 miles long. But the chaise lounges by the pool overlook the golf course and the view is awesome. The food is delicious - and Diego, our waiter was wonderful. I would also highly recommend their Executive Club if you live in the area - it is an awesome deal. Our room was very comfortable - lots of pillows and comfort. The bathroom only had a shower but it was very spacious and very nicely tiled. And the coffee is available at 5am!!
