Place was average and Internet booking system was problematic. Would it be my first choice, probably not. The place was tired and not much insulation between the floors. Advertised as free parking, but in small they advise its limited.

We stayed in the hotel for one night. It was friendly and cheerful. There is no hot breakfast at this hotel which lets it down slightly. The Shower could have been more powerful. The bathroom smelt a little on entering it. We left the bathroom door open to air it and it was fine after that.

Good value for money, it was nice and clean... just a little bit cold when arrived to the room, but we put the heating and warmed up quickly. Good location and helpful staff. The location is also good, great views on the way down to the centre.

Well placed for visiting Durham city centre. Free parking. Rooms up to usual Travelodge standard - clean and comfortable. Good value for money. Always easy to book online. This Lodge situated in an historic building which was interesting to read about. Receptionist was very helpful with directions.

Didn't pre book a room but got a family room no problem for the 2 of us. Disappointed that we didn't get the online rate though.

I booked a disabled room with walk in shower facilities as I have severe difficulty walking. I was told at reception that the room was in an annexe some 150 yards away.
