Newest first
9.7 Excellent
Pros:The room was fabulous and the reception area very welcoming. Would definitely stay again but just miss breakfast.
Cons:The breakfast was chaotic, not enough hot tureens and not enough food at busy times. Long wait.
7.7 Good
Pros:Nice clean hotel, nice size room, great view over the river.
Cons:We needed to check in early to get ready for a wedding. We arrived at 12.30 but were not able to check in and directed tot eh health spa which was not great.
9.7 Excellent
Pros:We stayed in Durham for my daughter's commencement at Durham University. The location, room, facilities and staff were great. Comfortable lobby and bar. Our room was large and comfortable with all the amenities. Being within walking distance of the city and university was a plus. Just a short taxi to the train station from the hotel.
Cons:Prices for rooms were very expensive for the week of graduation commencement, twice and three times the normal rate of other hotels and B & B's normal rate in the city. I felt that they take advantage of the occasion. If I had booked early I would have stayed in less expensive lodging.
