The best Travelodge I have stayed in. Clean and comfortable. Spacious room. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Beautiful historic building with a history of the building available at reception. Very easy location, walkable to the city centre. Very good Italian restaurant, very reasonably priced next door.

A pleasant, airy room. All very helpful staff (particularly Linda Ross - thank you!). The breakfast box was good value and long life so snacks lasted the two days. The hotel is very convenient for the city centre.

We were welcomed on arrival but the member of staff on the next day was unhelpful and uninterested. The bathroom floor looked like it hadn't seen a mop in months. There was black mold on the roof and around the shower tray. The shower was blocked and ran the risk of flooding the room after about a minute. The member of staff I told didn't care. The chairs in the room were so dirty we cleaned them with anti bacterial wipes before we risked sitting on them. The bed was uncomfortable and the mattress too soft. The location is fantastic, easy to get to, free parking and a short walk into town with lots of bars and restaurants. After our stay the manager had the cheek to email and say we would be sent a survey and he thought I should rate them a 9 or 10.

Checked in Monday 12th September and checked out Thursday 15th September. On the mornings of the 13th and 14th September we put the ‘Top Me Up’ sign on our door (Room 23). This was with regard to coffee, milk, towels etc.. However, on our return to our room on both days at about 5.00 p.m. we found that nothing had been done. I only complained when we were leaving - but there appeared to be no explanation why this had happened. There is no point giving you a sign to hang on your door if it is not actioned. I would point out that the hotel sits at the top of quite a long and steep hill for those who aren’t too good on their legs. Will still use Travelodge.

We stayed in a family room for a Durham University open day. The hotel was well located and had free parking. We were able to leave our car and walk easily into the City. The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was tired and very basic - I thought it expensive for the room quality.

Clean, straightforward and fair price but look elsewhere for breakfast. What’s on offer out of a machine isn’t worth bothering with. Rooms at the back and not facing the main road ( which is concealed by a hedge) are much quieter.

We stayed at Durham Travelodge for an overnight stay. The lady on reception was friendly and very helpful, explaining how to walk in to the town centre. The position of the hotel is very handy and the walk in to town took roughly 10 minutes. The room we stayed in, is past the main hotel, very quiet and the room was good, no complaints as we were only there for one night. We would recommend to stay here as its accessible to the town centre.
