I was looking for a low cost hotel in the Durham area, but there was very little available in durham itself on the night i wanted. The hotel is about 5 miles out of the city which isn't a problem if you have a car.
There is a large, though not exceptionally well maintained car park. Reception was reasonably quick though I had to ring the bell and wait for the receptionist who was working in the bar.
The room was very clean and comfortable - the bathroom deserves a special mention as it had obviously been recently refurbished and the fittings were excellent. The location is very quiet so I had an undistrubed night.
Breakfast is served in the Thai restaurant. On arriving in the restaurant there is a piece of paper on which you are invited to tick up to five cooked breakfast items. A waiter then silently collects the paper, takes it to the kitchen, and a few minutes later an excellent freshly cooked breakfast is silently delivered to your table. The buffet is modest but adequate and had a range of cereals, a bowl containing bananas and oranges, a range of yogurts, sliced bread and a toasting machine and some croissants in plastic bags which I didn't sample. There are also fruit juices, a cona coffee jug.
Overall this was a very good hotel at the price.More
