“The breakfast pulled my rating up from 2. For the price you could stay in a low cost hotel.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2013

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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

I stayed here for a few days while at a conference held at the science campus in Durham. It was a good location - 5 mins walk away from the science campus, close to the city centre and right next to the botanic gardens.

For student digs, this was pretty decent. The ensuite room was quite big, with tea-making facilities and a really comfy bed. It was fairly quiet and the food was great.

The only niggles I have would be that there was no TV or wifi available, and it was a single bed not a double so if you like your creature comforts I'd say book into a hotel instead, but bear in mind that uni accommodation is much cheaper.
