On the A167, north of Durham city centre and just a short drive from junction 63 of the A1, the hotel offers comfortable, great-value rooms, a family-friendly restaurant and free parking.
Score from 145 reviews Very good
The Three Horseshoes is situated within 10 minutes’ drive of the beautiful city of Durham. With parts of the building over 300 years old, it still retains some quirky, original features.
Score from 230 reviews Very good
Location, friendliness of staff, cleanliness, ease of parking.
Room was quite small and the en suite had a partially see-through door which reduced privacy.
Lovely breakfast, quick service. Nice pillows! Good tv. Just wanted an inexpensive bed for the night while visiting Durham Uni Open Day. All good but think we were sleeping above the disco!
Family staff and excellent food locally sourced. I will be staying here again when in the area.
The whole place had a really nice comfortable atmosphere with helpful staff and good food
When there was a function it was a little noisy in room
The staff were very nice and the food was excellent
The room was very small and the bed very uncomfortable, never got a good nights sleep. Also far too much furniture in the room.
friendly staff excellent food and very nice room if a little small
everything was fine
Not being able to check out and settle my bill properly due to late staff and after 3 calls I have still not received a vat receipt !
very comfortable with helpful staff. Dinner and breakfast were both very good.
The room was small and very pleasant, but the bathroom door was made of glass and not completely frosted.
Staff were attentive, food was not over elaborate but good value. Room allocated was excellent.
Nothing, should be 4 star
Bedroom serviced well everyday room really clean and recently renovated room
Breakfast was awful,one day the bread was mouldy another day there was scrambled egg trodden into the floor the tables were wombly with card put under their legs to stabilise them! The breakfast service was also v poor I saw mainly young people at front of house who needed training
Close enough but far enough away. Well located for the motorway network. Good choice of menu and quite good quality. Comfortable beds
Waited nearly 10 minutes to be checked in. Couldn't find a member of staff. Attention to detail, dirty cutlery, sticky tables etc.
Great Room - size, comfy bed, cleanliness 9/10... WiFi worked well
Nit picking maybe, but breakfast waiter was pretty much asleep
breakfast was awful. no yogurt, hard boiled eggs ordered which came soft and had knife slashes in them. full english was ordered which came without the egg. waiter said it was coming on a separate plate. husband sat waiting for it while rest of breakfast went cold. mushrooms were luke warm and not cooked enough. Dreadful.
Good location just off A1 and only ten minutes to Durham City center. Friendly helpful staff Good value for money
Stayed on a Sunday night having driven 250 miles as attending my fathers funeral the next morning. Ten minutes after arrival a wedding started which was not a problem until after 11pm when I was trying to get to sleep. Constant door banging and noise from the other residents. If I'd been told I wouldn't have booked to stay on that particular night and found alternative accommodation.
Have been to Durham many times before but never to Bowburn Hall as had not "discovered" it. It was a nice surprise to find this place and would certainly consider using again. Was only there one night so cannot do a full critique but I didn't spot any negatives from a one night only point of view.
Very friendly staff and my husband loved his freshly cooked breakfast.
The bedroom was fine but the downstairs rooms - restaurant etc weren't very clean. They did have lots of people with children eating there - it was very busy but the following morning the tables were greasy and the floor still dirty. It just looked as if the whole place needed a good clean - not just a quick vacuum!
Clean comfortable and free wifi
We arrived very late ,reason road works for repairs by the council ,road closed in most directions. when we did arrive stressed out, the duty manager and the chef were in the main bar a meal was offered and drinks enjoyed My wife and I thank them both ,Yes we will be back. Once again Thank you for the warm welcome. David 7 Eileen Cockermouth Cumbria
Local Council temp road signs but what the hell we got there safe and had a fantastic night.
The lounge, Bar & Restaurant were nice
My room was like something out of Charles Dickens. Out of date, not clean and was cluttered.
Close to A1,Large car park
Nothing close by.
Garden Views were good from the rear. Quiet in the hotel good for sleep. Good food quality and staff were friendly.
Glass toilet door in bedroom in full view of bed and hence no privacy. Not offered a choice on the menu during a wedding meal. Beer quality could have been better for price.
Disco below our room til midnight meant we couldn,t sleep at all. We weren,t told that there would be agadoo playing til all hours, if we had known we wouldn,t have booked in. It,s not a country retreat. The grounds are limited and it,s situated in the middle of a housing estate. We told them in advance we were vegetarian. They offered us the cooked breakfast minus the meat....stepping back int ime to the 1980,s! When I asked to speak to the manager about the noise levels I was told they would contact me, they never did. When I emailed later they ignored me. Very poor service and very rude.
Because the Hotel had a wedding party booking , there was an issue with our room with noise. Nikki and Callum were amazing and re roomed us without question :-) Impeccable Service !
What was there not to Like !
Locally sourced produce
Rise in cost of a glass of wine since last visit.
Nice hotel with lovely grounds ideal for wedding
If you do not have transport it is out of the town centre and a taxi is 10£ each way. No lifts so if a person who has climbing problems there is a lot of stairs to negate.
