We stayed in a family room for the University open day with our daughter. The room was perfect spacious, set apart from the main hotel and lovely and quiet. Parking is ideal although you are charged £5 to stay overnight. On our arrival we were greeted by smiling reception girls and a glass of bubbly ...
Located on one of the town's main streets and with a supermarket car park at the back, I worried it might be noisy but it wasn't. This is a great base for exploring this beautiful area.
The Inn was great and so easy to check in. Staff was so friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. Only caveat was my husband hit his head 3 times going into the bathroom because the entrance is really low. He is 5'10" so not crazy tall, but a nice cushion up there would be appreciated.
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.
