Had a nice overnight stay through travelzoo which covered dinner, bed & breakfast and a glass of wine with dinner for £59.

Rooms are nice and you get a bottle of local brew (Fusty Ferrett in ours), a pack of handmade cookies which are nice touches and 2 bottles of mineral water. Dinner in the brassierie was very nice as well with plenty of choice. We stayed on a Friday night and it was quite quiet. Apparently it is popular with coach parties so is busy on Saturday nights.

Staff were attentive and pleasant. Breakfast gave plenty of choice and I would definitely stay again. Easily accessible just off the A1 and despite it looking a bit like crossroads from the outside the inside is sleek and modern and better than more expensive hotels I have stayed in.

If they were able to add a leisure suite, spa etc then I would make it a regular stop as it is ideally placed for other places to visit in the north east.

Keep up the good work guys

Dear Kentishman71
Thank you for taking the time to place your review. It was great to read that you enjoyed your stay. We are very proud of the hotel and the Brasserie, especially as alot of our dishes are homemade.
The hotel is a modern build and when it was designed at the foremost was to ensure that when staying with us you have space, comfort and rest.
Your comments have been passed on and the team are thrilled
When you return, Durham city is a must and it is a place where you can return to time and time again

We have just returned from another fantastic holiday at this hotel! As usual, we could find no fault with the hotel. The room, food, service and staff are excellent, nothing is too much trouble! Thank you to everyone at the Aston Hotel for making our holiday so enjoyable again!

We stayed at the Aston Hotel this weekend & cannot praise the staff enough, they were without exception excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner & the breakfast buffet was very good. Our room was very clean & spacious, the shower is really good. If we are back in this area again we would most certainly stay at the Aston & would highly recommend it.

Thank you for taking the time to review the hotel after your stay with us. I am pleased to read that you were very pleasantly surprised and that you found the team to be excellent. We do take a pride in the hotel and we try to ensure you have a comfortable, relaxing stay with us.
The menu in Brasserie59 has a lot of homemade dishes on, I can recommend the lasagne. We say that breakfast should be the meal which sets you up for the day ahead and reading your comments this has been the case.
Our showers are very refreshing on a morning and soothing on a evening, topped with having a clean, comfortable bedroom.
We look forward to seeing you again, dont forget yo visit Durham City when here next

Very comfortable hotel, easy access and good facilities.
Nice new bathrooms, attention to detail stops them being very good and getting a 4 out of 5.
Breakfast acceptable, Reception staff Very Good.

This was our first visit to an Aston hotel, and it was a real revelation. The hotel was very well appointed and clean. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, and the bathroom was of an incredibly high standard. We received a very warm welcome, and the staff were courteous, friendly and exceedingly helpful. We will definitely stay at this hotel again.
