Spent 3 nights here on a birthday treat. Having never been to Durham, the hotel location is spot on, just a short walk over the river to the city centre (even spotted a Kingfisher flying past right in front). Its a 10-15 minute walk from the railway station (steep climb on return).
We paid for a Business class upgrade and actually got a Junior Suite - huge, with a separate lounge, 2 TVs, expresso machine, bathrobes etc. Good views over the river. Only quibble was the bathroom, kitted out for disabled access as a wetroom - rather messy, with insufficient shelving and ridiculous tiny wash basin at below-waist height.
Overall we were very happy with our stay - good breakfast, friendly staff, good pool/gym/sauna etc.
