Fair 4.0
Not up to scratch - poor service
Reception experience the worst ever - every aspevt was poor. No robes in room. Kept referring to us using wrong name. Unable to accomodate an early check in (prebooked). Some leisure facilities out of us - not informed. Receptionist on arrival was rude. Service charge to use restaurant?

Fair 4.0
Bit disappointed, In need of upgrading. Room too hot and air conditioning not working properly.

Very good 8.0
Excellent location for exploring Durham
Royal County is located in an excellent position, we didn’t need to use the car at all whilst there for a couple of days. Rooms were comfortable enough but the air conditioning struggled (it was the hottest week in July). The spa facilities were fine as was the happy hour (or three) on cocktails. Would definitely recommend.

Carol, gb2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
No real help offered
I had a great stay apart from after we checked out. Unfortunately we left a piece of property behind which was found by the hotel but they offered us no help to get the property back to us. We will have to arrange a courier to Ireland which will be a significant cost. We asked the hotel to post the item and we would supply funs for them to do this but to of no avail. Great hotel but felt let down by them in the end.
