Unique Quality: this hotel is in the centre of durham,all the city sites are within 10 mins of the hotel, you will find a wide range of visitor information in the hotel lobby,and you have on site parking.

Directions: Out of the hotel turn right, then left up over the bridge and follow the street round to the market sq,this will take you 5/6 mins

Good Spot

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 4, 2010

A mostly very good experience at this hotel. Staff very professional and helpful. They started breakfast service for me a few minutes early as I had an early train to catch. Some of the communal areas look tired (corridors etc), but the seating areas and breakfast room were very pleasant.

The room was a great size and had nice, older furniture rather than the usual flat pack stuff in mind-range hotels. The only real negative was the bathroom which (whilst being a great size) needed an update and some complimentary shower gel, soap etc.

Overall, very satisfied for my one night stay.

Directions: Very short walk to City Centre

The Three Tuns

by written on July 30, 2004

This is a hotel not far from the Royal County and not far away in terms of comfort and facilities. It is part of the Swallow group.

Although The Three Tuns has no gym, the Royal COunty allowed patrons of the Three Tuns access to its gym in the past, although I am not sure if this is the case anymore.

Again I have never stayed here but would still reccomend it.
