We were lucky in that we got an OK deal on the room price (c£80 bed only) and it turned out to be very large and had a great view along the river towards the Castle and Cathedral (c10 mins walk away). The parking at £7 per 24 hours for guests is good by Durham pricing (£1 per hour on street) but the car park was very full on the Saturday night when their was a (very well behaved) wedding reception on. The hotel and room were easily 4*, with a very good breakfast buffet (c£10 continental/£15 full English). The staff were friendly and helpful too. In our opinion it is better value than the Royal County, albeit it is new build and not so characterful. The Premier Inn over the river would have been a bit cheaper but, obviously, with less amenities.
