I had the pleasure of having Christmas dinner at the Royal county today. Thank You for such A lovely dinner and experience. Wonderful and friendly staff where nothing was to much trouble.

Well worth the money will be back next year.

We stayed in a supreme room. The room was lovely with tea making facilities a separate shower and bath and a small sitting area. The room was clean with plenty of cupboards and 2 tvs. The only issue was the flashing smoke alarms in the room which at night were a bit annoying. The spa area was lovely but not many beds. The breakfast and bars were good with v friendly staff. All in all a nice relaxing stay

Stayed at the royal county yet again. Service as always was superb and breakfast and room service were great. Lovely cosy bar as well. All of that was very 5 star and the location was excellent right in the centre of durham. The car park is far too small though. I arrived at 6pm and got the last space. The building is old so you will experience traditional english heating and plumbing. For those who dont know what that means its not a compliment! Its time marriott refurbished the rooms they really let down what is an otherwise superb hotel. They arent dirty just tired which is a shame.

It was a great stay. The spa facilities are nice and well taken care of. Don't expect anything really fancy, but enough to relax have a Sauna, swim and jacuzzi. We also had a lovely dinner and the staff were very kind.

This hotel is in an excellent location for the cathedral,castle and city centre. The rooms are big although a little dated. On arrival there were no parking spaces due to a conference being held in the day and I stuggled to parl elsewhere. This is worth bearing in mind if you are driving. After finally finding a space I arrived at reception with all my luggage to be told I wasnt in the main hotel but in a small annexe across the carpark so had to carry my cases much further than expected. There was no wifi in this annexe so had to go to the lobby to get internet but then had no phone signal.
I ate in the restaurant, the starter was very nice ( pea soup ) but the Marriot burger was dry and pricey. On the whole it wasnt a bad stay, beds were comfy and breakfast was good. I stayed here on business and wouldnt have an issue if I was booked in to this hotel again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the main building
