Reviewed 14 February 2014

I stayed here for one night on business. I received a very warm, friendly, polite and efficient welcome from staff at check in. My room was spacious and well equipped, benefitting from a large bed and a good level of standard equipment (including a fridge). Robust WiFi was included in the cost of the room. There were some very minor niggles with an otherwise very good room - for example, the bed linen was marked with what looked like a coffe spill and the bathroom was showing signs of wear and tear, with 'tired' grouting round the tiles that needed replacing. I found it difficult to get the temperature of the room right with the heating controls. Overall, however, I found this to be a very good, well equipped, comfortable, quiet and well run hotel - one that I would certainly use again.

I chose to stay here because i had been there during the day for a work event.

The reception staff , are friendly and very efficient , and if a queue forms , more staff just seem to appear !!.

The room was very quite, and the heating and ventilation could be adjusted so there was none of the usual "hotel stuffy box syndrome ".

wardrobe space had plenty of hangers ( other hotels take note !!!) tea/coffe and a nespresso machine .
plenty of space to work , and an additional chair, , and if all lights turned on no need for miners lamp , as in many hotels.

bathroom was excellent and shower easy to use .

restaurant was also very good, with a good range of dishes very reasonable priced, and a wine list that matched and reprinted good value for money.

Breakfast again met the same very high standard ,

every member of staff i encountered was pliant and efficient , and appeared to enjoy working there,

there are many business centric hotels whose managers should stay here to see how its done,

In the words of the ex governor of California " I 'll be back !)

The room was comfortable and quiet so had a good night's sleep. The en suite had a bath which I liked. The breakfast was good and we had an enjoyable bar meal one evening. The hotel is within walking distance of the city but up flights of steps so you need to be relatively fit. In fact there are a lot of steep,cobbled streets in Durham. The staff are friendly and very helpful. There are a lot of facilities which we didn't have time to use as we found so many things to do in the city. It would be great if you had children with you.
