Durham Marriott Hotel Royal County

Nice hotel, good location

The hotel is well located very near the center - the bridge that links to the center of Durham is just across the street. The hotel has a car park, so this is a good choice if you want to be near central Durham but don't want to drive on narrow streets. Basically this is a Marriott and is quite similar in many respects to Marriott hotels everywhere. There is no local charm and the decor is very generic, albeit comfortable. It's a good business choice, not so great if you want to feel like you are in England. There is a Starbucks inside the hotel. The elevator is under renovation.

Jurys Inn Newcastle

Nice high CP value hotel

Hotel in good location offering good breakfast included rate. Nice staff always willing to help guests. It is hard to find any competitive hotel in city center in terms of the CP value.

Copthorne Hotel Newcastle

Pluses outweight minuses

The hotel (which does need to be updated - as they are planning to do) is located right on the River Tyne. It is just a short walk (uphill) to the center of town but far better to watch the tide roll in and out on the river then be located elsewhere. There is a outdoor market on Sunday, two minutes walk, along the Quay. I was shocked that the hotel (that size) did not have a single converter from American plug to British. After purchasing one at the train station, I realized my computer's plug would not fit into the converter's "mouth". Colin, who I spoke to at the front desk, went way out of his way to fix the converter and help look for a telephone charger (which I had also forgotten). This made up for the fact that no one was able (or interested) in helping earlier in the day. I dined at the restaurant and, with low expectations, was pleasantly surprised (except for the pungent smelling smoker who served my dessert). Too bad they charge for internet access.

Sandman Signature Newcastle Hotel

If you like American soccer or "football" the Sand

The room was comfortable and afforded the amenities found in American hotels such as, hair blowers, an iron and ironing board, plus a refrigerator. An additional small wall TV was attached on top of the vanity table in case you don't want to miss a program while blow drying your hair.
