The location is best reached by car. The alternative is the bus that comes maybe once per hour. The hotel is just 5 minutes from the car park in the old part of town, most likely where you will park while you are in Durham. The hotel is on the highway with a farmer's field behind. No sheep. The food was good and varied. The breakfast is NOT included and costs 9.95 pounds ($14.00 / 11.40 euro, each).
Our only real complaint was that the wifi would not "hold" and we would need to keep signing in again and again. Also, a chair that would slide UNDER the desk would have been nice instead of taking up room space.More
