“You get a bit less than you pay for IMHO”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014 via mobile

Rooms very small, very old and extremely basic. Nothing like the photos on the internet. Has one of those half baths with shower, waste of time. You check in at the bar! Should've been a dead giveaway. Was told on arrival, on a Saturday night in July that it was quiet, that the restaurant would be closing early and that the menu in the rooms is not available, only what was on the blackboard. So after we dumped our things in our room, we headed to the Toby Carvery down the hill, less than 5 mins walk, as it was approaching 7 pm.

For £50 a night room only I think it was very over priced and will never go back or recommend to anyone.

Stayed July 2014, travelled with family

It's a Campanile. It's cheap and what you get reflects that - if you want five star accommodation you'll just have to pay more.
Staff at this particular location were friendly and the service was pretty good. Hotel could benefit from a bit of an overhaul but the room I stayed in was clean and everything worked as it should.
In our modern connected world, however, just two power points per room is a bit mean!

Having stayed in another Campanile Hotel (Glasgow) a couple weeks previously I had no qualms about booking at this hotel for an overnighter after a day at nearby Beamish, fully expecting a similar standard.

I was utterly disappointed, as it was NOTHING of the sort! I was especially disappointed as I'd recommended it to other family members too on the back of my previous dealings with Campanile.

So firstly the good points..
The sole member of staff that we saw was pleasant and helpful (which is surprising considering he seemed to be the only guy working there for almost 24 hours!).

The breakfast (prepared by the same guy) was excellent and well presented..

And finally the hotel, is cheaper than it's near neighbours..

The above 3 reasons are the difference between scoring only 1 point or the 2 that've I've given!

The reason for how cheap it is quickly becomes apparent once you start looking around this hotel! Tired, Scruffy and in dire need of a complete overhaul! My father who travelled with us suggested it needed demolishing and rebuilding! (Which was perhaps a tad harsh! - but the place most certainly needs gutting!

The room walls had dent/holes in them, there were dirty marks all over the walls, I didn't feel comfortable enough to walk on the carpet in bare feet and did not want to use the shower. The pillows are wafer thin (which come to think of it was a complaint at Glasgow too). Just not nice!

The seating in the reception area was soiled, ripped and does the scruffy theme justice along with the giant cobwebs dotted about the place.

The rat posion containers just by the doorways don't offer much of a welcome either, along with the broken external security keypad that had apparently been forced (by crowbar or similar) didn't bode well!

Oh and if you feel the need to go running to the hills and driving out of the place at a fast rate of knots... beware of the large pot-hole in the driveway which is capable of causing a blowout or wheel damage if caught unawares.

My advice.. until Campanile totally revamps this place, then look next door at the Holiday Inn.. or a few hundred yards down the road to the Premier Inn!

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel nearby!

Previously used nearby Travelodge which was full for our last minute trip. Very impressed - spacious room, comfortable bed, 24" flat screen TV, bath/shower with plenty of hot water. Should have known that free WiFi was included in the price as we always want WiFi. Signed up our various devices and was able to stream a film without problems. A real bonus as this is often £10 extra in other places.

Had a full-English breakfast, freshly cooked while we waited in the hotel restaurant, very impressed with unlimited tea, coffee and toast and a good range of fruit, yoghurt and cereal with complimentary newspapers to read.

Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: lower numbered rooms are further away from the A1M, though we only noticed the road when we came out...

Lovely very helpful and friendly staff, ate in the restaurant as the adjacent Holiday Inn was very poor the night before. No margarita pizza and the neighbouring table first choice off too, (it's not an extensive choice to begin with). Wish they had the French outlets menu over here!
Wifi even when I eventually got on ( meant for residents only as a room number is required, despite the advertised free wifi everywhere), was rubbish and kicked me out
My experience ties in with other reviews and sadly despite the staff I won't be back

Stayed overnight on a Sunday when attending a function in Durham. We were informed on arrival that the Hotel does not serve food on a Sunday evening. There are however two pub/restaurants within walking distance so no real problem. Our first room had a faulty light in the bathroom and we were moved to another room immediately. Room was clean with kettle ,flat screen TV, hairdryer, plenty of pillows. We only needed one socket to charge up a mobile so no complaints there. We slept well and found the bed comfortable. Breakfast buffet was ample enough so no need for the cooked option. We have stayed several times at Campanile hotels and found them basic but comfortable. this one was no exception. Not a place for a holiday but fine for an overnight stop.

Room Tip: We had no trouble changing rooms due to a faulty light, if something doesn't work, ask to change...
