Free cancellation on most hotels. Because flexibility matters.
Ask any guest what makes a great hotel and they'll give you a different answer. Business travellers will, naturally enough, demand corporate-friendly amenities, business centres, meeting rooms and decent WiFi, whereas family or group holidaymakers will look for child-friendly restaurants and maybe somewhere to relax, like a sauna or fitness centre. Many travellers, whether they are travelling on business or for pleasure, will look for hotels with a swimming pool - somewhere to cool off after a long day conferencing or dragging the kids around Durham's historic landmarks!
From indoor pools to outdoor pools, to heated pools and plunge pools, a hotel pool will be as unique as the hotel itself. Just because the United Kingdom may not be an exotic clime, doesn't mean its hotels don't often incorporate swimming pools, which are a feature many guests view as a desirable extra. Guests like swimming pools for a number of reasons, they're a great place in which to relax and they're also a common feature of health and leisure hotels, such as the Hotel Bannatyne Durham, a three-star hotel that enjoys a convenient location in easy reach of Durham's top attractions, such as the Gala Theatre Durham and Durham Castle.
As well as being a common feature in fitness and leisure hotels, it's also common to find swimming pools in boutique or luxury establishments. The magnificent five-star Seaham Hall boasts two indoor pools, as well as a wide range of other high-end services and amenities, such as a spa and fitness centre, two restaurants and concierge services. If you're looking for a historic or period property that benefits from a swimming pool, County Durham has several fine examples, such as Best Western Parkmore Hotel & Leisure Club, a beautiful converted Victorian property located in Stockton-on-Tees. If you're heading to Middlesbrough, either for a holiday or a business trip, and are looking with accommodation that has a swimming pool, you might consider staying at the four-star Jury's Inn Middlesborough, well placed for all of the city's top attractions.
