Positive Reviews

Convenient location for sports fans

Built near to the Durham Performing Arts Centre and Durham Bulls Athletic Park this property benefits from a convenient location downtown, but without the hustle and bustle and there are various eateries within just a short walk away.

Unique décor

The property is decorated in a unique style, where it’s very trendy but with retro touches. The public areas are a pleasant to place to congregate with a variety of games available to play to pass the time.

Extra touches

Boasting a gym and pool area there is plenty to do in your downtime whilst staying here. The Wi-Fi is much faster than you would expect from a hotel service and is very reliable.

Negative Reviews

Strange lighting set up

Guests have complained over and over again that there is a strange lighting set up in the room with all lights controlled by a master switch near the door. So if you have to visit the bathroom in the middle of the night you can only turn all of the lights on at once. The hotel has stated that this is something they are looking to improve in future.

Parking can be a pain

There is no private parking here, it is in a multi-storey car park shared with other attractions in the area. Some spaces are reserved for guests but if it is busy you may still struggle to find something. You may also have to queue to get into the car park and then again for the lift to get out of it.

Bring earplugs

There have been reports that noise can be heard when trains go past. If you are a light sleeper you may want to request a room as far away from this as possible.
