We spend a few days i this hotel for a business purpose, for a price 55 per night for a double room. Rooms are big, clean, quiet. It´s possible to use the gym and spa right across the parking. Nice and big enough. The only minus is, all prices - room only.

Thankyou for the positive feedback. We do pride ourselves on both the service and facilities we provide.
All bookings for the Hotel are on a room only basis. Food is available in the Health Clubs Cafe Bar and is reasonably priced.

Stopped over when travelling. Room was spacious and comfortable, although not spotless. Great value, and use of the gym too. We would stop over here again.

Stayed at the Banntyne Hotel Durham whilst visiting friends for the weekend. good clean spacious rooms with comfy beds. On par with a Premier Inn. Chose this as I wanted to enjoy the spa facilities. Nice pool, steam room, sauna and hot tub. Clean, warm showers. Great gym and you can join in the classes, all for the price of the room.
Not nearby eateries and a little out of town, but worth it for the facilities. give it a try : )

Room Tip: Away from road as there is a little noise through the double galzing but 'no so much!'

Stayed in a Bannatyne for the first time last week. Very well appointed room, good quick free wifi and friendly staff. Very comfortable nights sleep and a far preferable option to a Premier Inn or a Travelodge.

Had a great 2 night stay at Bannatyne Hotel Durham. Stayed with husband and two children (2yrs and baby) to do some sightseeing in Durham. Room was very spacious and clean. Very comfy and big bed. Large flatscreen TV with CBeebies channel let us stay in bed a bit longer! Staff were friendly and attentive - even recommending nearby family attractions without our asking. Great to be able to use the leisure facilities at the adjacent Bannatyne Gym - made this incredible value for money, would have had to pay so much more to get such good facilities in a hotel. Very easy to find (just off M1) and really easy to get into Durham by car. This seemed a lot better than a two star (official rating) hotel.
