Good for O/N stay close to centre of Durham

Pros: Location
Cons: They have done their best with an old building and small rooms.
It worked well for me, needing an overnight stay close to the centre. Left my car at the Park and Ride just off the A1 for daytime then collected it at the end of the afternoon and parked in the street opposite the hotel. Needed to feed the meter for an hour next morning so I could have breakfast. Having read the reviews I knew to expect a small room, no chair etc but that didn't bother me. More important was a short, safe walk into the centre that evening.
