The VERY large 'club' sandwich in the bar one evening. Couldn't finish it. It certainly wasn't a dainty dish!
The politeness of the staff
Staff were friendly and helpful. Location was excellent.
Toilet flush didn't work well. Bathroom extractor fan didn't function at all - but not a real problem.
Excellent location and great friendly staff. Comfortable rooms with good AC
The water pressure is terrible, the toilet wouldn't even flush toilet paper!
Location was good. Parking on site.
Poor bathroom - very old and tired. Uncomfortable, lumpy bed.

We enjoyed all aspects of our stay at the Marriott.All facilities excellent,staff pleasant,friendly and helpful.
Staff are wonderful, we stay here regularly. Breakfast is always of high quality produce.
Close to bars and restaurants and brilliant value for money!
The staff at this hotel (bar none) went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Attentive, friendly and smiling - thank you for making us so welcome. The hotel is situated in a fantastic central location where everything is within easy reach. We will certainly be recommending this hotel to anyone visiting Durham.
150 for one night was massively over priced. No DVD player. Bed was just two singles put together. Toiletries were practically none existent. Food and drink was hugely overpriced. Wouldn't recommend.
Upgrades to executive suite at no additional cost. Very nice
Rooms, Staff, Quality, all good as Marriott chain, breakfast was really good and locations is the best next to the river and just seconds to the town center
elevator maintenance, price slightly high
Room&furniture need renovation
comfortable room but small, great breakfast and responsive staff, greeted with a Pimms cocktail
ac didn't work in room but staff found us another room but without a view
Very good breakfast. Very good pool facilities. Upgrade to larger room. Well positioned for old town and Catherdral
Slightly tired feel to the hotel. Uninviting bar area.
Room was a good size and it was clean and fairly well appointed.
Third floor. No convenient lift. No air in room, so it was very hot and stuffy and therefore our quality of sleep was affected. Overall, décor was a bit tired.
Room was beautiful, Staff at reception very helpful, Very close to all Durham had to offer.
Price of a glass of wine in the bar, very expensive.
the large bed and room
drinks very expensive
