Booking with the hotel was pretty straight forward, we managed to get a deal on Groupon for the Easter weekend!
Upon arrival we were met by Avril and the team, we were given lots of information about the hotel facilities and things to do around the area! Great customer service!
The room itself was great! With a good size double room equipped with TV, phone and a great view! The bed was comfy too, which was all that mattered really as we were planning on getting out and about exploring Bishop Auckland and County Durham! The Only negative point about the room was the shower, it was pretty weak. Apart from that everything else was fine!
We were informed about bus services to and from Bishop Auckland to County Durham (About 20 Minutes each way).
We had breakfast in the morning (served from 8am until 10am). This consisted of a full English breakfast, cereal, yogurts, juice and fruit which you could just help yourself to so its well worth paying for!
We ate in the restaurant area on Saturday night after a busy day in Durham and it was really good value and really tasty! I had the Chicken and Bacon Carbonara!
The location itself wasn't too far from the station, and had a nice route along side it for a good walk!
I would recommend this place to everyone and will be back again in the future! :)
