May weekend in Durham

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 21, 2010

I stayed here as part of a work event - a weekend of Health & Safety activities. It is an annual event, and it is always good fun. The hotel was the location for officials and VIPs. My goodness, I am a VIP!

The hotel is comfortable, quiet but a little quirky with many twisting corridors.

Nice menu and very friendly staff.

Unique Quality: Close to the town centre and cathedral - which makes it a good location for seeing the world passing by. By the river and the many eateries and bars,

The Royal County

by written on July 30, 2004

Although I have satyed here I can reccomend satying here as it is the most expensive hotel in Durham with all the facilities you would expect.

Wonderful riverside views, a perfect location all leads to a great stay.

Worth paying a little extra for perhaps?

A Brief Selection Of Accomodation

The black oak staircase from Loch Leven castle in Scotland where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned.

The Royal County is also generously decorated with antiques and fine artwork.

Unique Quality: The Royal County is the only four star hotel in Durham City and has 150 rooms.

The hotel is located on the banks of the River Wear and is only two miles from junction 62 of the A1(M).

The hotel also has a choice of two restuarants that are AA rated and an excellent leisure club.

Directions: From the A1(M): take junction 62 towards Durham, over 1st roundabout, left at 2nd rroundabout over bridge. Left at traffic lights, and the hotel is on your left handside.
From motorway: A1(M) junction 62

For a splurge...

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 30, 2002

if you have money to burn, or are lucky enough to find a good deal from the internet, then the Marriott in Durham is the place to stay. Right in the centre of town, it is handy for sightseeing and shopping, and has all the facilities you'd expect.

Unique Quality: Ask for a room with a view...there are some overlooking the river, which are obviously far nicer than those overlooking the car park or the main road. It isn't usually in my budget to stay in four or five star hotels, and I'm usually happy with a bed and a door that locks...well, the Marriott has that and more! If you can't relax on holiday unless you have a trouser press by your bedside and marble taps in your bathroom, the Marriott won't disappoint.

There is a "health club" in a bright conservatory-type building by the river, with all sorts of hot rooms and saunas and things. The swimming pool is a bit of a joke, though...I realise that health and safety is important, but is it really necessary to create a swimming pool so shallow that you are nervous about doing the breaststroke lest you graze your knees on the bottom? Makes it very popular with children, so if you are allergic to kids, noise and extreme splashing, avoid like the plague.

Directions: On Old Elvet, the street with all the university admin buildings on it. Cross over the cobbled Elvet Bridge and you're in town.
