The hotel was located centrally, but was like a maze! A mixture of different buildings on different levels, held together by corridors. We kept getting lost,

Hotel in need of refurbishment.

Location: Good central location below cathedral
We were put in an out building which meant walking through the rain to get to the main hotel. Our room was on the ground floor with a window facing a pavement and road, which meant the room was hot as we did not want to open the window for security reasons and was also noisy. Furthermore, there was a lot of noise from people moving in the room above.

Very well placed for Durham centre

Pros: The staff
Cons: Refurbish any tired rooms
I have stayed at this hotel before and always been given a large and pleasant room. On this occasion however, I arrived at 11pm and was given a key to room 120. I must assume that this part of the hotel has not been updated for some time as the room and facilities were shabby and worn, although clean, and the air-conditioning had to be switched off as it rattled too loudly for us to sleep. I rang reception and explained that we were not happy, but due to our tiredness from a long journey and the late hour we would use the room that night but would like to speak to the Duty Manager in the morning. This we did, meeting a very pleasant and efficient lady named Ruth Parsley. The result was that as no other standard room was available we were moved to a suite for our second night and given a complimentary breakfast, as well as a promise that maintenance would overhaul the other room. My view is always that problems occur; it is how a company deals with them that counts, and the staff at Marriott County get 5 stars for this, especially Ruth. I will now be happy to continue using the hotel, and others in the Marriott chain.
