1 night in Durham
I struggled to find somewhere in Durham for just the 1 night which was reasonably priced, then found this place. It was ideal for what I wanted in between working days, in walking distance to the city centre. The room was clean, the hotel had character. There was no 'staff' on site after 6pm nor by the time I left , 0815 the following morning, other than those who had prepared and served breakfast, which was good by the way - nice choice too; there was a tel number though if people needed anything. My room was fine but the bathroom was tired and needed some attention - not the furniture (other than the stiff squeaky shower door) but the floor surface is coming away, finishing touches were poor - sit on the toilet and look around, you'll see what I mean. Also the TV - had BBC1, BBC2, and then Dave, but nothing else. That said, would I return? Yes!
