Spa & Leisure

Located next to one another, the leisure facilities and Spa Tranquility treatments area at Durham Marriott are a light, bright and welcoming health and fitness sanctuary combining the comprehensive amenities of a well known brand - gym, swimming pool, sauna, solarium and a hot tub – with the boutique ambience that characterises Durham.
Having chosen to use Darphin products because of their aromatic plant-based ingredients, the treatment menu is equally embracing with a Yummy Mummy selection, treatments for men, wraps, scrubs, massages, facials, couples treatments, contouring treatments, wedding make up consultations, finishing touches and the more specialised Vibro-Tone body experiences.

Hotel & Accommodation

On the banks of the River Wear, Durham Marriott Royal County Hotel is built around core elements that date back to the seventeenth century and take in views of Durham Castle and Cathedral. The interiors reflect that fusion of old and new with contemporary furniture and design alongside heritage style fabrics and patterns. Meanwhile, although Durham has much to offer by way of restaurants, the hotel’s own County Restaurant steakhouse prides itself on providing an exclusive address at an affordable price.
