The Durham Marriott Royal County Hotel is located in the historic cathedral city of Durham in the North East of England. It is set within a beautiful 18th century building, in a conveniently central location looking out over the River Wear. The hotel is only 15 miles from the large and vibrant city of Newcastle, and just 11 miles from Sunderland. The hotel is only a short distance (350 metres) from the city's much-admired cathedral, as featured in the Harry Potter films. Just 1 mile away is the Oriental Museum.
Durham is a beautiful city and this hotel I situated on the banks of river and our room looked out over the river which was lovely. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the breakfast was really good, as was the evening meal. Our room had traditional décor and was comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed a swim in the pool and relaxed in the sauna and Jacuzzi. Had a lovely break and would definitely go back to this hotel. - StevenJones
