The Swallow Three Tuns Hotel was formally a 16th Century Coaching Inn which had been tastefully renovated to retain many of its original features such as stained glass ceilings, original woodcarvings and open fireplaces but at the same time provides modern facilities you expect from a first class hotel such as this. Situated in the heart of Durham, the Three Tuns is convenient for Durham Castle and Cathedral, the Gala Theatre and the Botanical Gardens. An ideal hotel from which to explore the North East area.
Arrived quite late at this hotel but the staff were on hand to book us in and show us to our room. The décor was tasteful and the bed was nice and comfortable. The room was well equipped to meet our needs and had a clean ensuite. We were pleased with the location of the hotel and there was a lot to see and do within easy driving distance. The food in the hotel was good; we ate both evening meal and breakfast here. - WayneW
