If you are a visitor to Durham and want to enjoy the cathedral and history then this is a good option. The staff in the restaurant were exceptional, very friendly, and accommodating. All in all its a mid-range decent stay, my only negative is the astronomical parking rates, over 100 pounds for a 6-night stay is a disgrace and the hotel should work to bring this down

I couldn't help think that the whole experience was decidedly standard. It took me a long time to realise it but the whole experience reminds me of old a newly built old peoples home that was onq my paper round in the 80s. It looked premium, looked aspirational, looked expensive etc but in reality was souless, smelt slightly of cabbage and everyone in there looked like they wished they had made better life choices We had a premium rivèr view room which was big. The view from the hotel front is cathedral and castle and the river. To enjoy this view when not in your room you have to go outside of tbe hotel, as rhe pool and bar etc are shoehorned into the back of the hotel by the carpark. The bar is too expensive and drinking there does not feel like a treat, it is part of the lobby with no view afterall. Again nothing exciting about breakfast except the slow service if you ask for anything e.g eggs. I cant help feel this hotel over promises and and delivers exactly standard. This is where you stay if attending a function there. Its where you stay if your old peoples coach tour takes you there. It isnt where i would choose to stay again

When looking at this hotel it looked quite luxurious, 4 and a half star hotel with good reviews. Unfortunately when arriving I learnt this wasn’t the case, everything about the hotel is worn and dated, the room which I was provided with was okay but did have a few issues, such as the lamp not working, TV was glitchy and the ‘queen’ bed was just two singles binded together. Ordered room service the glasses came with the tray (which is £5 to have delivered) were dirty. The room itself was quite nice but just little things like paintwork being poorly done makes the difference to how you feel during your stay. The gym/sauna/pool were one of the reasons I chose this hotel, from the photos it all looked lovely; unfortunately the cleanliness was awful. The gym on our first night was packed and so was the pool and sauna, that’s not the gyms fault it was busy but something to consider they do also have a lot of members outside of the hotel that use the gym facilities. The jacuzzi / sauna just looks like it doesn’t get cleaned often which is noticeable. All in all the hotel is located nicely and has nice views, ofcourse there is quite major construction going on right outside the hotel currently so that change the view / add to noise quite a bit. Personally I wouldn’t stay here again, for what I paid which was £120 per night it was far from worth it and quite underwhelming, if you can stay here for say £65 per night it would be okay because that’s all it’s worth truthfully.
