Good ROOM.exc breakfast
No bar,nofood available sunday and monday
An amazing building, with wonderful views over the Catherdral and castle. Beautifully restored building with modern comforts. Warm as toast with a lovely welcome from the management.
Stay not long enough, will stay for longer next time.A real gem of a find.
Super view of cathedral
The restaurant - very pretentious Michelin aims....
No restaurant or bar on Mondays and not near any restaurants to go out to eat.
Excellent guest house with spacious rooms.
A little hard to find
The Breakfasts - a good, wide choice. Good room - we liked the views.
The noisy heating system. Check-in could have been more friendly; Staff did become more friendly as our stay progressed.
Quietness - garden view - ground floor room, as we had heavy luggage - good sized room - staff helpfulness in giving us a lift to station when it turned out there were no taxis free - apparently this is a regular problem in Durham, of which visitors really need to be warned so they can book well in advance.
We picked it largely for location near the station, combined with Victorian architecture - we found that the information we had about location was quite misleading, as it was further than we expected and roads much too steep for convenient walking with luggage either up or down. Architecture was just fine!
Convenient distance away from the centre of Durham
Yes. The first night we did not sleep a wink because of the noise of the fan and plumbing toilets etc, the noise was unacceptable. Room No.
Large, pleasant room with v.large bathroom. Friendly staff and big breakfast.
There's a dog that starts barking at about 0930 and doesn't stop all day that was opposite my room - not too bad in the week but killed any chance of a relaxing lie in at the weekend. No bar.
Friendly, and a good breakfast
Noisy pipe work in room nine at 6:0 am in the neighbouring room.
