    I loved my very peaceful stay. Breakfast was fresh made and the staff were happy to help. Worth every penny view of canal. A short walk to the astonishing beach. It had a clean restaurant.

    The place was reasonably clean and staff was friendly efficient. We booked a deluxe room, it was well decorated and extremely quiet. Five star location, 5 minutes' walk to an architecturally innovative Norman Cofe cathedral.

    I enjoyed the very competent staff and free breakfasts. Fine room and coffee, balcony and iron/ironing board inside. The best sand beach I've seen before. Plenty of food in the hotel, casual restaurant. I was pleased with polite service too. Excellent value for money, and the location was pleasant for exploring Durham.

    Staff were fantastic, so I loved my being there. A private safe, an electronic key card and a TV set were a nice touch. Provided buffet breakfast. Honestly nothing too much trouble.

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

    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.
