Country setting, yet convenient for DurhamWe were made to feel personally welcome, despite the hotel being very busy with a wedding party when we arrived. The room was very comfortable, and the slight quirks with plumbing clearly explained ("please run shower for 90 seconds before use to ensure water is at the correct temperature"). Staff ...

Favourite Place of our weekWhat an amazing hotel. Beautifully renovated but retaining all it's character, including creaking floor boards one would expect of a building this age. Different floor levels which we assume are from when different parts of the building were added in the past. Truly charming. The facilities were ...

Pocket Guide: 3 stars Hotels in Durham

County Durham is famed for its medieval market settlements, picturesque river valleys, and glorious North Sea coast. It's also home to a fantastic selection of three-star hotels, all of which provide stylish rooms with comfortable bedding to ensure you a pleasant night's sleep.

Visit Durham

See Durham's impressive castle, which forms part of Durham University and has stood for more than 900 years. Take a slow stroll through the beautiful Durham University Botanic Garden, then visit the magnificent cathedral, another remarkable Norman landmark that is one of England's best-preserved medieval buildings. On the outskirts of Durham is Crook Hall, a splendid medieval house that overlooks elegant themed gardens with a courtyard and maze.

See Awe-Inspiring Durham Cathedral

Few cathedrals in England, indeed Europe, can rival Durham Cathedral's spectacular location above the dramatic gorges of the River Wear. This unique landmark has been a permanent place of worship for more than 900 years, and was featured in the first two Harry Potter films, a fact Gryffindor fans of all ages will love! The church's oldest section of the church was built with prehistoric stone called Frosterley marble which is estimated to be more than 300 million years old.

3 Star Durham Hotels with Breakfasts

3-star hotels often provide delicious full-English or continental-style breakfasts, which may be included in your room price or be available for a daily supplement. Many hotels also have restaurants which serve hearty British cuisine and other delicious international dishes, and some haves fitness centres and conference facilities with audio-visual equipment.

Go to High Force, One of England's Highest Waterfalls

In the Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, High Force is 21 metres high and overlooks a huge plunge pool. Within easy reach of various three-star hotels, the waterfall is a short walk from a picnic area and is a terrific sight at any time of year, especially after heavy rainfall.

Visit Auckland Castle

Dating back to the 11th Century, Auckland Castle is one of Britain's best-preserved Norman buildings. See its intricate artworks and exhibitions, then enjoy a refreshing hot drink and a delicious slice of cake at the Library Tea Room.

The Picturesque Coastal Town of Seaham

This pleasant town is noted for its lively marina and is part of the photogenic Durham Heritage Coast, dominated by dramatic cliffs overlooking attractive coves. It's home to St Mary's Church, which is one of the oldest in the country, estimated to date back more than 1,300 years.

Stylish 3 Star Hotels with WiFi Access

Whichever three-star hotel you choose in Durham, you will normally benefit from WiFi access in your room and most public areas. Some venues provide high-speed internet connections, and some offer this service free of charge or for a minor hourly or daily fee.

Many three-star hotels across County Durham are also equipped with tea and coffee-making facilities and en-suite bathrooms so you can be completely independent during your stay. If you are a family with children, you may be able to book adjoining rooms or additional bedding on request.
