Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty2013 Very friendly staff.
Stayed one night to visit family and friends in Durham. Have used this hotel quite a few times on business and the staff are always friendly and welcoming. Rooms are a bit tired but then most of the Holiday Inns I stay in are much the same. Free Wi Fi at last!!
Good location for visiting Durham and Newcastle.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lizzie1301 Great service and really good value
I have stayed here 3 times in last 2 months and have to say that what makes this hotel a must in the area is the attitude of the staff, from the welcome at reception through the bar and dining staff they cannot do enough to make your stay pleasant and issue free. The rooms are really good value and with great internet access ensure I can arrive early and finish work stuff before dinner. Which brings me to the restaurant, evening meals are okay, there is also an effort to put on something different with specials menus which is good. My only complaint would be breakfast, on all my stays the bacon has run out and the toast is hot bread unless you put it through the machine about 5 times. That said, all in all I really enjoy staying here and with work bringing me to the area regularly I will definitely choose to stay here every time for the great value but mostly for the lovely staff.

We had 2 great nights here. Service was excellent, rooms were clean & comfortable. Our only complaint was our 2 rooms were on separate floors.
Our 6 month old puppy thoroughly enjoyed her stay as well & thought it great fun racing down the corridor to the room. Staff were very welcoming to all of us.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Room 501 Room 501
For an upgrade, this room was below average value for money. The sofa-bed needed cleaning--it was covered in glitter and stains. We couldn't use the room safe because we were unable to open the safe door. The duvet was of very poor quality and there were no extra blankets in the room.
However, the room was quiet, there was ample hot water and the breakfast was adequate. On request staff did provide 2 bathrobes.
