Described as a country house hotel it is in fact envloped by a huge housing estate. However, the hotel was once in the country and has a tranquil unhurried atmosphere. Our arrival was not auspicious as it took 15 minutes to get someone to attend the reception desk, it turned out that they were short staffed and one person was have to look after the bar, reception and act as waiter! He, along with other staff who we eventually encountered, were friendly and helpful.
Our room was clean and tidy but the bed matress too soft for our taste.
We took our evening meal in the dining room, it was simple, honest and good value - the fish and chips recommended!
Breakfast was also excellent, the full English having everything a hungry lorry driver would want.
In summary, the hotel was pleasant, good value and very handy for visiting the city of Durham.
