Very good breakfast
Have provisions for children e.g. children's menu but could look into children's cutlery. When able, an refurbishment and update would be nice (in comparison with Edinburgh Marriott - November 2008)
The hotel is very well placed in the centre of Durham. Helpful staff.
Great location for sight-seeing and shopping. Lovely room.

Room Bathroom and Service
Very poor dinner and breakfast
THe room facilities were good and also had large comfortable beds in a twin room. Great view of the river from the Bedroom. Breakfast was very good with good service.
Bit of a trek to the room but to be expected when a nwer building is added to an existing old building.
First rate hotel with excellent facilities and a very professional and helpful staff. Restaurant good and the student waiters excelled also.
Excellent facilities at the hotel great to have the leicure club included in the price
Very good hotel would use it again.
