We stayed in Durham for my daughter's commencement at Durham University. The location, room, facilities and staff were great. Comfortable lobby and bar. Our room was large and comfortable with all the amenities. Being within walking distance of the city and university was a plus. Just a short taxi to the train station from the hotel.
Prices for rooms were very expensive for the week of graduation commencement, twice and three times the normal rate of other hotels and B & B's normal rate in the city. I felt that they take advantage of the occasion. If I had booked early I would have stayed in less expensive lodging.
Ideally positioned for a walk into the beautiful city of Durham
Very expensive for just a one night stay and dispite the car park costing extra the snow had not been cleared.
The hotel offers a excellent location for access to Durham's shops restaurants and bars. Situated overlooking the river and millenium bridge the view is a feature of the hotel. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable.
I needed to ask for a second bathrobe and slippers set to be sent to the room. The room only had one dresser chair and one chair at the table within the room. This is not great if you are wanting to sit at the table and have a drink or a snack with your partner in the room.
very warm & inviting - comfortable and a good location
I liked the gym and swimming facilities - was really nice to use these after a long day working.
The menu for room service wasn't that great and the only other option was to come down stairs for italian food - could have been more variety and choice
Very modern and free wi-fi
Pleasant staff, clean and modern facilities, easy walk to town centre
Car park barrier failed - though was solved in a few minutes
Clean, well organised hotel. Reception area spacious and light. Views of Cathedral and Castle on hill above bedrooms. Restaurant good.
Management in Reception took a long time to respond when several guests arrived together. Only one desk was staffed with receptionist seriously overloaded. Many staff came and went while guests became impatient.
Excellent room and breakfast was also excellently presented. Staff friendly and helpful.
The hotel was clean, modern, stylish and was perfectly located for walking into the city centre. The room was light, airy and comfortable. Loved the pool facilities.
None to report.
Location,easy to find,
Lift tricky to operate, required some info from reception.payment of car park,heating in bedroom not operating, I now had a reply from hotel to say the next day it was working fine, if this was the case why could a member of your staff not operate it the night we reported it faultyand offer us an additional dufet for the bed, that night it was very cold and made the stay in the room uncomfrtable to cold to shower and very cold getting out of bed the following morning.
