Enjoyed an overnight stay in a Junior suite, business class. A very spacious room, well presented, the bathroom was a nice touch of luxury - twin basins, a large bath and a separate shower cubicle, with underfloor heating throughout.
The bed was fabulous, large and very firm.
The aircon was a bit noisy and we had to switch it off through the night which made the room overly warm.
The additional touches were nice - nice quality toiletries in generous size, Nespresso coffee machine, high quality robes.(No biscuits though!)
The corridors throughout the hotel were way too warm!
Reception staff were very courteous, very efficient, although upon arrival they offered that the sofa bed would be made up, but it wasn't, and when we asked for it to be done we were advised there would be a £20 additional charge!!
A nice selection of food at breakfast though service wasn't as good as I would expect.
All in all, the presentation of the hotel was good, bar staff service was good. The rooms were nicely decorated and the location of the hotel is ideal to walk in to Durham centre.
