Score from 408 reviews Good
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.
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!
