We had attended a wedding in Beamish Hall the previous night and decided to stay over another night in the area before heading home. The location of this hotel is magnificent for exploration of Durham, but as with everywhere else in said city, parking is difficult and we just about got parked in the hotel car park. Was slightly strange that Marriott do not have exclusive use of their own car park, with so few spaces, it is also a public pay & display. That was the only negative really. The reception staff were friendly and whizzed us through check-in without issue. The room was standard, very comfortable, well appointed and clean. Very happy and would stay again.
