Old Elvet Durham DH1 3JN 0191 386 6821
The Royal County has long been regarded as one of Durham’s best hotels, with a lovely central location overlooking the River Wear. The rooms are fresh and restful, and most have a castle, cathedral or river view cathedral. Pluses include a leisure club and grand old restaurant – a popular place for dinner. There’s also free on-site car parking, although breakfast is only included on certain rates.
