Stayed for a few days during the week only. I didn't want to stay at the hotel during the weekends due to the weddings and stag nights customers. Nothing to do with the hotel!
Excellent value too, cheaper than Premier and much much better.
We had a lovely large and quiet room plus a very comfortable bed. Good clean bathroom with an amazing powerful shower.
We did not eat breakfast at the hotel due to a horrible breakfast at a previous hotel which put us off for a few days. However, we had excellent bar snacks and a lovely evening meal. Apart from the overuse of mango sauce on every pudding plate we had, it would have been excellent. Good bar food at the golf course bar too.
Excellent location for us to go between Durham and Newcastle.
We stayed during some cool days this July but there was no air conditioning which would be a problem for me in warmer weather.
The other design flaw are the many stairs up and down and we were located in a far block. In fact, the design is a puzzle as the spa suffers from the same problem. Lovely little spa and gym but the changing rooms are upstairs from the pool which means that customers leave a wet trail up the stairs to the changing rooms.
It was by far the most comfortable hotel I have stayed in recently and I would go back during the week but not at peak summer time. I would pay extra for air con. Customer service was excellent. High standards and comfortable hotel and all at a very good price.
