In the Room
The hotel was spotlesslessly clean, the six foot bed extremely comfortable and the power shower wonderful! The food was good and the reception staff very efficient, friendly and helpful.
Our room had a washbasin in the bedroom rather than inside the main shower room toilet. Not a major problem but would have been more convenient if in the shower room. Although the reception staff were excellent, some of the restaurant staff (mainly in the morning) needed more training in customer service and possibly how to smile!
Recption staff present a relaxed but efficient atmosphere on arrival
Convenient for visting Durham and Beamish, in a budget package which was far superior to our expectations. The restaurant service and food is excellent. Will stay here again.
Your restaurant and bar staff were extremely polite, helpful and efficient. A good meal after a long day was enhanced by excellent customer service (and a decent pint).
There was a musty smell near and in my room (227), reminded me a bit of the smell of ingrained stale tobacco after attempts to clean it.
Clean.Relaxing ambiance.Good food.Really friendly helpful staff. The next time we go away in U.K we will try and book into a "Aston Hotel",we enjoyed it that much.
The location and friendliness of the staff. Breakfasts were very good.
The Air-Conditioning system was very poor and could not be adjusted. I had to request a change of room as the temperature was very high indeed. It appeared to be a hotel wide problem as the staff and I had to visit 5 rooms before we found one that was marginally cooler.
We arrived late at night and were made very welcome by the staff the room was spacious and comfortable and the breakfast very good
a very small point and may seem to be nit picking but the directions to the hotel especially for guests arriving in the dark could be better.
Staff were really friendly. Rooms were comfortable and spacious. Good choice at breakfast, freshly cooked and always being replenished. Straight off the motorway which was excellent for us to carry on our journey into Sunderland. Would recommend and stay again
The rooms in this hotel are great. Much more spacious than typical and every room has a king size bed, very nice! The decor is modern and clean and I have always found the staff very helpful. Location wise it is close to the Northumberland and North Yorkshire countryside. It is also only about 20min from the Croft race track. I have stayed here a few times now and the staff have always been very pleasant too!
The hotel is ideally placed if you wish to visit the attractions of the Durham and North Yorkshire areas. Our room was large and comfortable. The reception staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful.
The configuration of the room, with the hand basin separate from the toilet was a bit strange. There were some items on the breakfast menu unavailable on one morning of our stay.
Value for money
Wash basin not in bathroom, no bath only shower
My room was well appointed for rest and working desk area.It is particularly important for me when staying away from home to have a comfortable mattress.For this reason alone I will stay at the Aston again on my future trips.The previous night I stayed in a well known group hotel of similar stars and the matress was like a rock and I had a disturbed night.As a world wide traveller,I was impressed with the Aston in view of the price.
The food served and the excellence of rooms along with helpful and pleasant service
everything about hotel was great, staff, rooms , food and cleanliness. value for money it was perfect
Too near A1 and noisy. I could not open a window as i always like to sleep with a window open. However the double glazing worked well and the fan sufficed. Perhaps you shouls ask customers which side of the building thy prefer.
