    WIFi not available for half of our stay. This was a reason for booking. We needed to keep in touch with family. Would have been better to have had a choice of better value snacks , felt that the only choice being the restaurant menu , not always what a traveller wants.

    Available when prior choices were fully booked.

    A lot of niggles rather than anything disastrous, e.g. cup so badly cracked that breakfast coffee was dribbling onto saucer; some dirt on bathroom wall; lots of shampoo but no bath/shower gel.

    Food, facilities, welcome, location.

    Something that is hard to rectify that is road noise.

    Exceptional

    The staff were wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt that the friendliness was natural rather than "corporate image" I would really like to stay there again.

    Nothing.

    Fabulous

    The four poster room, part of the main hotel, was spacious and well organised. Very suitable to our purposes. Our eleven year old adored the breakfasts. The senior management were extremely helpful and welcoming. Persuaded me to return next time we are in the Durham area

    minor grump that the musak in the bar filters up to the first floor room in the late evening. But if that is the cost of being in the centre part of the hotel, I would bear with that.

    Tiling and bad workmanship on finishings in the bathroom.
