Still a great experience
Our room was very nice with a superb view of the keep.
My bed was uncomfortable and creaky. Quantity and quality of breakfast was very good but due to buffet servery was barely warm by the time it got to my plate. It might be best to go to the great hall for breakfast when it opens at 8am. On the plus side, you are in the centre of Durham with free parking outside the cathedral for your stay. We took advantage of the free castle tour (normally £5 each) and our guide Chris was very informative in a well paced and lighthearted manner. Despite the first comments I really enjoyed my stay.
Whirlwind tour of rainy Durham
Thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay, particularly breakfasting Great Hall.
Quirky Different and Brilliant!
Staying on the top floor of the old keep in Durham Castle for £40.
Absolute bargain. Would recommend to everyone unless you want full private facilities!
Brilliant for centre of city. An amazing location with the bonus of free parking on the Castle Green
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
Shared a twin with my daughter who was taking an exam at the University. Lots of stairs so if you have a bad back like me you will find it difficult, we were right at the top of the tower.
Bar was empty when we tried it the first evening but the barman was friendly and chatty.
The breakfast was basic but good. Only criticism was that the plates were cold.
Amazing ovation for exploring the town. Felt quite priveleged. Free parking on Castle Green was a great bonus as parking in Durham is a nightmare.
Overall an 8 out of 10. Would I use again - yes.
loved the castle but not our cell room
Our castle stay was ruined by our room, H10 was directly above a very large extraction fan which disturbed our sleep all night, we could n't leave the window open for the noise so then the room became stuffy.
and the view of a stone wall right in front of the window, made it feel like a cell, so avoid rooms close to H10., the first room we were given K52 was up several flights of stairs. six or more and was just to much for us to keep climbing up and down so if you have any fitness issues whatsoever avoid the K rooms. request a J room as these were lower with not as many stairs, The castle itself was beautiful and excellent breakfast with lots of choice so its a shame our room spoiled the experience and if our room had been better then it would have been amazing value
Durham Castle, wonderful place for night in Durham.
Excellent Customer service, good breakfast.
great castle experience!
a very quirky experience, excellent location and a surreal breakfast in an old hall filled with oil paintings
Unique location at best price
Great location, clean and neat rooms.
Very good breakfast.
Best view in Durham.
Such an atmospheric setting. Lots of steps to the room so you need to be used to climbing steps. Keeps you fit.
An excellent stay.
Would visit again.
