The Benefits of Durham Conference Centre Hotels
Conference facilities are a common feature in modern hotels, especially if they cater for business travellers, offering business centres, free internet and other corporate-friendly facilities. Conference facilities will vary from hotel to hotel, differing in terms of their capacity, additional extras etc., however they will typically offer audio visual equipment, refreshments and be presented in a professional manner. Location is also an important consideration, and many conference centre hotels enjoy convenient city-centre locations, easily accessible by car or public transport. However, more and more rural hotels are choosing to offer conference and business facilities, especially the larger country home establishments. A conference centre hotel doesn't necessarily mean a modern hotel, with many magnificent period buildings offering excellent conference and business facilities, such as Crathorne Hall Hotel, which is located in Yarm.
