My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel for a weekend during January.
I went to check in while my boyfriend parked the car. The staff on reception were very friendly and helpful. The car park was small but we managed to get a spot and it was a free car park to customers staying at the hotel.
The room itself was quiet small but very nicely decorated and the bed was really comfortable! I fell asleep as soon as my head touched the pillow! The room was clean and had all the things you would expect for a modern hotel room (tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer, ice bucket etc).
The location of the hotel is perfect - about a 2 minute walk into town, but far enough out so that its quiet!
We used the leisure club facilites and found them to be fantastic! We went on the Friday night and it was really quiet - we used the swimming pool, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. The staff at the leisure centre were helpful as well, offering change for lockers when required.
The breakfast was very good - hot and cold buffet which had everything you could want!
We would stay there again if we are visiting Durham
