We have transported our son to and from Durham University since 2007, staying in Premier Inns. We found the Three Tuns during a web search and wished we'd found it before! Premier Inns are fine but this one had a lounge to sit and read in, in front of a live fire (peaceful and rather like a private old-fashioned club), the staff were lovely and yes, the bathroom had mould on the ceiling, but the building is very very old! The bedroom was clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable. One criticism - no hairdryer (oh God my hair!). We had a nice meal with our son and his girlfriend in Brown's Restaurant which was spoiled, rather, in that only one other table was occupied.
Our son's time at Durham ends in June and how I wish we'd found The Three Tuns in 2007 - I would recommend this hotel for anyone having a holiday in Durham. it has everything one could need and - important to us - somewhere quiet to sit and read without having a tv blasting out sport all day. There is a tv lounge but during our stay it was unoccupied. We sat in the bar and listened to the intelligent conversation of a party of (Ph.D?) studends at the next table - not a tattoo in site! Great.
