2 nights B&B in Durham Castle, next door to the University Library, opposite the Cathedral and only a short walk down cobbled hill into city centre for about £70!. In terms of situation this really cannot be beaten but its only available during University holidays. My room was a single with shared bathroom-shared the sense that there were 3 new showers & toilets - so no problem and all immaculate. Modernised room was high up in the Tower, with thick walls (no next room noise), simple (it is student accommodation) spotlessly clean & provided with tea/coffee making facilities, snacks & toiletries. Plenty of storage space, power points and cleaned daily- I've stayed in much worse at 3 times the cost. All staff are friendly and incredibly helpful. Note of warning: my room at top of tower meant climbing several long steep flights of stairs... Several times a day- not for anyone with knee/hip problems! Suggest checking this when booking.
Breakfast in original Great Hall is self service and includes a choice of pretty much everything you could want, all freshly prepared in oldest working kitchen in UK! All fantastic value for money and a lovely stay.
