Fodor's Review

This is a real Norman castle, right down to the dungeons and maze of dark flagstone corridors—one room even has a bathroom hidden behind a bookcase. Antiques and rich fabrics lend the rooms a sumptuous feel. Those in the courtyard annex are less expensive, but also less atmospheric. Join in the merriment of the Friday and Saturday Elizabethan banquets or dine in the modern and surprisingly inexpensive Black Knight. The hotel is just east of Chester-le-Street, about 8

miles north of Durham.
