This hotel is one of the best kep secrets of the North East of England.
It provides 5 star accommodation and service, with at the same time a reasonable cost. Indeed you can get offers which mean that your stay will be ridiculously cheap.
We stayed on the night of the 27th May 2012, that was my Wife, my 2 year old and myself. This was our second visit to the hotel. We were not dissapointed.
The Courtyard has rooms which are more like suites. This is where we have stayed on both of our visits. We payed £79 Bed and Breakfast for the room with a massive period bed, a put up dbed for my daughter, raised level bathroom & WC, period features etc.
There are even grander rooms inside the castle itself.
The breakfasts are to die for! A large selection of cereals, yoghurts, cheeses, fruit etc, and many wonderful cooked options from Eggs Benedict to Smoked Salmon.
The hotel hosts Elizibethan Banquets throughout the year and is a fabulous wedding and conference venue too.
It is ideally located in Chester-le-Street, right above the Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground. This is where I have been each time I have stayed at the hotel.
You have to stay here the next time you plan to visit the North Eats of England.More
