Great location within walking distance of Durham Town Centre. Great staff and good value. Only problem was that we had a room near the road and stayed on 2 nights that were very hot. We needed to open the window to keep cool but then the room was very noisy. On the second night we got a fan from reception... More

Our room (209) was badly affected by traffic noise and, although the windows are double glazed, there is no other ventilation so we had to leave the top of the window open. Traffic noise all night. On Sunday, the duvet on our bed was pulled over an unmade bed and a towel we put in the bath to be replaced... More

Clean & presentable, friendly check-in staff. Not suitable though for elderly or those with walking difficulties. Downhill into town but a steep climb back. Certainly kept me fit. Restaurant next door handy. Food ok

Good hotel and great restaurants however children's beds should be more comfortable but the double bed was superb. Only a few Minuets away from Newcastle on a train. Stayed here for the magic weekend and if it's held in Newcastle again I will come back here

Easy to find with free on-site parking. takes 10-15 mins to walk into city centre (which is very compact) Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities provided. En-suite bathroom clean and worked well. I would not buy the "Breakfast box" again - contents far too sugary. Was an (unconnected) italian restaurant next door. I would

The hotel is pretty central, about a 10 minute walk into the city centre. The rooms are basic but clean. Breakfast is very limited, just a cardboard take away box you have to take back to your room. Wireless access is not free and has an additional cost of around £5 for 24 hours.

Location isn't very central but an OK 15-20min walk into town, 25min walk to station. Room was clean, very basic. bathroom was extremely basic with low shower pressure. Packed breakfast was useful for the following day, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our window looked out onto a carpark, where travelers gathered to smoke. Good value for what... More

Beware "Free wifi" is NOT what it seems! My understanding was (from the terms and conditions) that all guests had 30 minutes of free wifi. Whilst you do get 30 minutes once you logon the wifi connection ends precisely 30 minutes after you logon whether you are connected or not! You have no means of disconnecting and saving your free...

Asked for adjoining rooms as we had a child with us. Hotel had no knowledge of this. Disappointed. Apart from that a standard Travelodge. Not good but not bad either. Staff were friendlly. Rooms seem quite standard.
