The staff went above and beyond when the hotel experienced a powercut in some rooms, finding me another room so I could shower and dry my hair.
Comfortable bed - clean and comfortable. Good shower.
welcome and all staff good . Breakfast value for money, very comfortable bed.Relaxing surroundings bar and lounge.The actual hotel very clean.
Our bedroom not as clean, shower curtain dirty and bath stained,
Friendliness and helpfulness of staff Comfort and cleanliness of room Good choice of food at breakfast. General warm feeling of hotel
We were very impressed by the staff who all seemed quite young but were all very helpful and polite. We had 2 evening meals in the hotel which were both excellent. There was a very good choice for cooked breakfast but 1 small criticism, there could have been a little more choice for the continental option. We will certainly use the hotel again when visiting the area.
We loved yhe location and facilities. We were well looked after by the staff who made us all feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Absolutely lovely hotel and made the wedfing just perfect.
The bed was very lumpy and uncomfortable.
Welcome Bathroom is excellent Innovative use of space in this single bedroom on 2nd floor
I have no concerns
bed was comfortable
breakfast was precooked was cold peeling wallpaper on the ceiling and wall no pressure in the shower very limited channels on tv
Close to A1 and Durham city centre. Warm friendly atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff
The hotel location was ideal for my trip. Breakfast was very good but the hotel is in great need of bringing into the 21st century.
Helpfulness and friendliness of staff. Lovely room. We had a power cut whilst we were there, however, as we could not have a cooked breakfast we had a continental breakfast instead.When we checked out we were offered a refund for the cost of breakfast.
Glass door to ensuite
Good standard of accomodation and facilities, friendly staff, 3 real ales.
Noisy event but dsico stopped at midnight and didn't affect us.
The staff were helpful. The room was compact but very comfortable. The Hotel was quiet and the facilities were good. The food was lovely and we felt it was good value for money and we would stay again.
Arrived at a very quiet tucked away hotel although its next to a housing estate which has obviously grown around it. Welcome excellent, the room was quite large and the bed very comfortable. Food at dinner was good and the seating very nice.
As there is no lift a porter should be on hand to take your luggage to your room especially if your on the 2nd floor. The hotel could do with a spruce up and a lick of paint. The breakfasts were not very good which was odd seeing as the Dinner was good?
The rooms were old fashioned but fairly clean. Decent restaurant on site.
The breakfast was awful! Poor choice, stale croissants and a broken toast machine. It was so bad, we didn't bother having breakfast on the second day. There were party nights on both Friday and Saturday nights. Extremely loud music going on until midnight. If you want a decent breakfast and a good nights sleep - look elsewhere!
Pleasant dining room. Lovely grounds but too tired to walk around and enjoy after such a poor night sleep.
Very loud 'music' when we arrived that continued almost until midnight. Incessant Motorway noise even with windows closed. Floor boards in the room creaked. Floor boards in the corrodors creaked and caused disturbance. Doors creaked and made a noise when closing. A bright green light on the TV started flaching in the middle of the night and had to get up and cover it up. Excessive light came into the room under the door.
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.
Evening meals were generous portions though sensibly priced with a couple of real ales available. Bedrooms were very clean and tastefully decorated. The conservatory area was also very comfortable.
It was very noisy! There was no mention of a band when booking, and the music went on until late... it was right below the bedroom!! Breakfast - no croissants or fruit compote in sight. The cereal bowls needed another run through the dishwasher etc etc. Probably down to staff training, but being asked to take a seat at a table that's not been cleared is not ideal & why didn't the waitress wipe the table down before serving the food.... It wasn't us who found this having talked with the other guests.
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.
