This overnight stay was comfortable if a little cold. The hotel was very clean and well appointed especially at the low price. The staff were very friendly if a little inefficient at times. Overall quite satisfied.
My room was gorgeous. Actually, I have stayed here twice and both times had room 1. It is exquisitely decorated. The hotel has free WiFi and the was no problem downloading a webinar with video. The most fabulous thing on my stay were the Christmas decorations. There was a room with an oak beam ceiling ...
Loved the hotel. Modern, clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was additional cost but worth it. Unfortunately could hear the nearby bars from our room until 1am but wasn't too much of an issue. Might not be good for children. Had a good view of the river and cathedral from our room. Staff ...

Year on year many tourists flock to County Durham in the North East of England, some to enjoy an adventurous holiday amongst stunning natural locales like the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty and the Durham Dales, and others to visit some famous historic landmarks, such as Durham Cathedral or HMS Trincomalee in Hartlepool. Whatever you reasons for visiting the picturesque part of the country, there are many amazing historic hotels dotted around the place, ideal for holiday makers who like accommodation that has a fascinating story to tell.
County Durham has a long history, with each of its major settlements possessing particular historic flavour. Durham, the county town, has two of the most famous Norman structures in Europe - Durham Castle and Durham Cathedral - as well as a fascinating museum. In Hartlepool, by contrast, you'll find many museums and landmarks dedicated to a long and important maritime heritage - notably the HMS Trincomalee and the Museum of Hartlepool. Along Hartlepool marina you'll also find a statue of a monkey, which relates to a rather peculiar tale from the Napoleonic Wars (you can discover what that is yourself!) If history is your thing, you'll find lots of great historic and period hotels and guesthouses in County Durham - from the quaint to the magnificent, something for all tastes and budgets.
Durham city is a great place to say if you're keen to explore the region's history, with plenty of top historic hotels to choose from. The Lambton Hounds Inn, located in the historic district of the city, is a fine example. This 250-year old former coaching inn comprises eight rooms and all modern conveniences, which are, of course, incidental to the stunning period décor and architecture. For something a little grander, you might consider the four-star Best Western Beamish Hall Country House Hotel, set in 24 acres of woodland and well placed for the region's top tourist attractions, such as Beamish Adventure Park and Beamish Open Air Museum. Whether it's a business or family holiday, a historic hotel offers guests a little extra magic.
