Stayed here on the second half of a weekend after our first choice was double booked......turned out much better then the other one, but that was really the only plus point. Other than the very friendly staff on reception, we didn't find many positive things.
The large bed (two singles pushed together) was very hard & uncomfortable, the decor in the room dated & the breakfast..........well what can I say! Not worth the extra £10.
Coffee was just awful, orange juice warm and cooked breakfast was pretty tasteless. The black pudding was stodgy, the poached egg well overdone & the tomatoes out a tin!
Cheap and cheerful stay - stay only if you want a base - 30 minute bus ride from Durham - and don't bother with breakfast.
