The City Durham

The situation of the city hotel is fantastic as it's just in the centre and everything is accessible, the room was to a good standard and clean, the down side however is that the room we stayed in the floorboards creeked and the bed also creeked so as soon as you move around in bed you woke yourself up with that sound, the worst thing in my Opinion is the fact that I couldn't lock the door from the inside!!!!.

Which came a nightmare when I think another guest opened the door on the middle of the night and tried getting in my room, absolute nightmare!!. On the upside though the breakfast are amazing and the ladies who were there in the morning were warm and welcoming.
