Durham Marriott Hotel Royal County Jan 21, 2017
I stayed here for one night during a mini-break to explore Durham. It is a very nice place to stay.

The location is good, right on the outskirts of the old town penninsula. It's a noticable walk from the station, but perfectly do-able in about twenty minutes (and of course there's always a taxi), and it's only minutes from the castle and the cathedral. The room was large, comfortable and spotless and the toiletries in the bathroom were lovely.

The bar is comfortable and has plenty of plugs for your laptop. Prices are hotel prices - slightly too high for the food served, perhaps, but you're paying for the convenience of being in the hotel. I didn't try the restaurant for a main meal but the breakfast buffet was good.

The staff were, without exception, friendly and helpful. Special mention is probably deserved for the sports centre staff who took the time to figure out an outdoor running route for me.

The only minor criticism I had was that the hot tub in the swimming pool was slightly colder than a hot tub ought to be, but if that's all I've got to complain about you know it's a good hotel. The pool is large enough to actually exercise in, there's a nice steam room and sauna and the gym looked fine.

I would certainly go back if I was back in the area.
