    Spotless bathroom and car park is very reasonable in price. Really close to restaurants, bars and worth every dollar.

    We really enjoyed it and we will be returning here soon. We had the superior king room and it was welcoming. Particular good mention to the management. Nice river views.

    Nothing not to love!

    Very good

    the swimming pool was good.

    Our stay was very enjoyable but why don't these hotels join the 21st century and when they can, refurbish the place. Do it piecemeal but at least make the effort.Go for clean lines and get rid of all the chinz.

    We booked two Superior rooms (one for a couple and one for a single person) and received excellent rooms with separate sitting areas and two large televisions. One of the rooms was even more spacious and had two double beds. We received a warm welcome at reception and all of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The location was also excellent as the hotel is within a short walk of the town centre, castle, cathedral and a reasonable selection of restaurants and pubs. I would recommend The Court Inn for a good meal (about a five minute walk from the hotel) - It is a bit on the small side and was a bit "lively" but the food was excellent - especially the mixed grill which was big enough to feed two people!! Overall, Durham was a great place to visit and we'll certainly be returning to both Durham and this hotel in the near future.

    The only thing I had a small issue with was the full charge for sole occupancy of the room - it would've been nice to have had a small reduction as I didn't eat two breakfasts even though I had effectively paid for two.

    Overpriced, decor in public areas ageing. Breakfast very expensive and no childrens options.

    The room was large and the spa facilities were excellent. Breakfast was out of this world, the choice and the service brilliant.

    I had upgraded the room prior to arrival but it was incorrect and we were sent to the wrong room so had to bring all our luggage back down, we were eventually put in the right room was was lovely but the bathroom didn't match the room it was was tired looking, shabby with broken tiles not what you expect for a 5*.

    Very good

    The very spacious room and comfortable bed. The location was very central.

    They seemed to miss out on the small things like not enough tea bags, milk or toilet paper in the room which then had to be requested. At breakfast they seemed to "forget" certain utensils like tea spoons etc. Nothing significant but just small irritations.

    Perfect

    The room we stayed in was very nice and had a huge bed, nice swiming pool, good food for all meals, friendly staff, location was great as everything in Durham was at walking distance.

    The fridge in the room was a great idea however it was not working properly. The room we stayed in 357 had a dodge flush handle on the loo however this is just minor stuff.
