    About

    With its historic heritage and impeccable amenities, the Durham Marriott Hotel Royal County provides a stunning backdrop for your visit to the city centre. Our hotel, part of which dates back to the 17th century, seamlessly combines traditional grandeur and contemporary convenience. Nowhere is this more evident than in our immaculately appointed rooms and suites, which offer both sumptuous decor and modern technology. Many of our rooms also provide views of Durham Castle and Cathedral, as well as the river and the city centre skyline. Elsewhere within the hotel, you can visit our leisure centre, which includes an indoor pool, a sauna and a gym. The recently refurbished Brew Bar Lounge offers a delectable afternoon tea, and No 59 Old Elvet specializes in classic English cuisine. Those planning events here in the UK can hire one of our five versatile, light-filled conference venues, too. Your luxury escape awaits you at the Durham Marriott Hotel Royal County.
