How often do you get the chance to stay in an 11th Century Norman Castle.
The room might have been slightley small, but this was more than made up for with the view.
The view across the river Wear, Framalgate Bridge and the railway viaduct on the horizon - fantastic.
We sat on the window sill and watched the bands of the big meeting go past. The bed was comfortable and the on suite facilities excellent. Room lacked a TV, but we did not need one anyway. The breakfast served in the Great / Banquet hall was excellent and the setting could not be matched anywhere.
Durham is a beautiful city, very compact. We were only 5mins from anywhere we wanted to go and the train station less than a mile away.
Will definately look to use this hotel again.More
