I have stayed here twice in August 2013. On both occasions there was nothing to fault with either room or the staff. The place is clean, maintained as it should be, has all the facilities it should have and the staff are friendly, helpful and pleasant to deal with. Both times i had a room that overlooked the rear car park area and had no real issue with noise either from the main road or the retail park. There is also a garage business at that side of the building and there is of course no noise form that at night. I used the on site restaurant for an evening meal on a couple of occasions and again the staff were friendly and helpful and I had no issues with the service or had to wait longer than expected for my meal to arrive. While the food is not the worlds best its more than adequate and of course the same restaurant is used for breakfasts, again no complaints, although on my first visit the coffee machine was broken, however this could happen anywhere at any time.
It could be better sign posted from the road, however if you read the website and the confirmation email it does warn that the postcode covers the area and will take you to the retail park and not to the hotel. However the two are separated by less than a two minutes drive so its no real issue. It is around a 10 min drive from the center of Durham but does have the retail park close by for anything the hotel cant supply.
All in all I will stay here again if I need to be in the area.
