I stayed here while attending a conference. The location is good. I walked into Durham centre in about 15 minutes (one road). On arrival reception was closed, but I found a very friendly security guard who let me in. I'll be honest, I sturggle with anyone selling this as anything other than student accommodation. I expected the single bed, no tv, no room service and so on, of course. I did not expect damp in the shower room, stains on the floor, cigerette burns in the furniture, hair all over the chair and no wifi.
There were tea making facilities and towels provided with a small bag of products (shampoo, soap, body wash and body cream - enough for one night). The bed was comfortable, but i did go to sleep wandering what might be crawling about around me.
Breakfast was in the canteen and was yummy. For the same price i could have stayed in the local low cost hotel, but potentially spent more on taxis.
