Wow what a place to stay, it beats your general hotel. It is actually the castle and the room was very pleasant. We stayed over looking the gate house and beyond that was the cathedral. It's run by the university of Durham and the staff are very friendly and helpful, the breakfast was great too, with a choice from full English to a continental or fruits and yoghurts. The breakfast was served in a huge dining hall with all the paintings and armoury.
Just made me feel like I was a king for a night.
P.s. you might want to turn the heat down in the rooms as the heating system works very well.More
