A Christmas visit to see family. We were offered a mince pie on arrival complete with a smile; which was a very nice Christmas touch. The staff were all in a festive mood wearing their Christmas attire + smiling. The hotel was tastefully decorated too. My only gripe this visit was the lack of lemonade ...
Loved our spa experience wish I booked a longer treatment! All staff are attentive and friendly. Room is outstandingly clean and modern with a little country feel: over look of the golf corse and water fountain (we booked the premium room) only thing I’d say is a mini fridge with a few complimentary ...
We were here for a family reunion. Beautifully quaint building and setting, friendly and welcoming staff. Cosy bar and great facilities for all ages and weather. Refurbished rooms above the spa are the most comfortable but you have to navigate a maze to find them.
Nice hotel with nice leisure club very relaxing and clean rooms, only bad thing was the room smelt a little bit funny when we first checked in, and there was shampoo but no conditioner in the bathroom
Always wanted to stay in a castle, it is kept beautifully, love that some staff wear costumes of the ere. Our room was beautiful with a four poster bed with wallpaper and curtains all matching. The evening meal in Black Knight restaurant was excellent, the breakfast may have been plated up a while ...
We (my wife and I together with my elderly mother-in-law) were visiting Durham for a family funeral staying at the hotel overnight. The rooms were fine and the hotel receptionist very helpful. Breakfast was taken in the adjacent health centre and spa. During breakfast the elderly lady was taken very ...
Good WiFi is no longer a luxury demanded by only the most discerning of business travellers. It's now something that many guests expect as a matter of course when staying at a hotel, whether they are enjoying an adventurous family holiday or attending a conference from overseas. Whilst many of County Durham's hotels and guesthouses are located rurally, WiFi connectivity is generally very good, with many great hotels with Wi-Fi in Durham and the surrounding areas. The internet doesn't have to get in the way when you're travelling, and can be a great tool organising your trip.
The reason why internet is so good in County Durham is thanks largely to the Digital Durham initiative, which aims to provide the homes, business and hotels in the region with fast fibre broadband - achieving speeds above 24Mbps for most (more in the larger settlements). If you're travelling on business, it can be very frustrating reaching your accommodation and making the unfortunate discovery that local broadband is below par. When you visit County Durham, however, whether you're staying in a city like Darlington, or on the outskirts of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, WiFi is likely to be good quality and free to use, for example at the Jury's Inn Middlesbrough, which benefits from a city-centre location in easy reach of top attractions such as Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art.
While good internet is a must for business travellers, essential for firing off e-mails, contacting head office and organising meetings and conferences, the modern holidaymaker also benefits from good internet provision, using it to share photographs and keep tabs on social media, but also to research, organise and book great days outs. With so much to do in County Durham, from amazing woodland walks to fascinating museums and historic landmarks, the internet can be a great tool for hammering out an itinerary - and is even more useful when its free at the point of use! It's normal for County Durham Hotels to offer free WiFi internet, some examples include the Hall Garth Hotel and Country Club, set in 70 acres of parkland, and the Sportsman Hotel in Stockton-on-Tees.
