It had a beautiful setting. The employees were extremely helpful and friendly. There was a nice path around the property that was great for walking or jogging. The pool and hot tube were also very nice.

The hotel staff is friendly. The rooms are large and the landscape is fabulous the children enjoyed the piscine and the golf course. The restaurant is quite enjoyable and offers enough choices for the children and the adults. That being said it lacks the high end finesse.

Dear RogerKaram,

Thank you for sharing your experience at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club!

We strive to provide top-notch experience to all guests and are sorry we did not live up to your expectations.

We had a severe storm come through Durham and lost power. Instead of staying in a house with no a/c we checked into the Washington Duke Inn because we are only a few miles from there. I was a little uncomfortable at first because the place is fancy. I'm a laid back hippie type so I really felt out of place but he people couldn't have been nicer. Our room was clean and comfortable.

As with all of my reviews, this review is solely based on a business trip perspective.

Wifi - not only free but is the best wifi service I have ever experienced. Fast and does not cut out.

AC- room AC rocks!

Great food at the bar as well.

All around great experience here on my quick 2 day trip.

Every time we get to Durham / Chapel Hill we try to stay at this hotel. We stayed again this month, and were not disappointed. Amazing charm, amazing service. Great food and rooms. Lots to do for the kids and adults. Since we were there in the summer, the prices were reasonable-- actually pretty inexpensive for the service and room quality.

Room Tip: We always stay in the family suite-- a king bed in one room, a desk in a middle area, and bunk beds...

The Wa Duke is a very formal hotel and welcoming hotel. The staff is very helpful and the rooms large and nicely appointed. My room looked unto the rolling green golf course and the property is beautiful. I highly recommend going for a walk or run in the early morning. It is a great start to the day! The hotel restaurant serves a pretty good meal as well, Room service is not bad either. I really enjoyed this hotel and look forward to staying there again.

We stayed overnight while attending a conference. The room was clean and comfortable, but the pillows soft so you need a bunch if you are used to a firmer pillow. The bathroom was very spacious and clean which is always nice when traveling. We ate at the Bull Durham restaurant for lunch. We didn't have a lot of time to eat and our waiter worked hard to get us our meals quickly.
