super location. Excellent food and very helpful staff.
We stayed in the express LNER themed room. It was well planned and indeed quirky. However one of the bedside lights did not work so and we were supplied with a lamp. The wardrobe door was also suffering from a problem and we could only be sure of opening it by wedging it shut with a piece of paper. Overall even with the lamp provided by a very helpful member of staff, the room was very gloomy. These were minor niggles in an otherwise lovely hotel and we would return on another occasion.
Set perfectly in the Classy outskirts of Durham. All rooms extremely smart and classy.
The TV was too complicated and couldn't turn it on. There was no hot water in the morning and had to call the janitor.
After looking at the hotel on line, it was exactly as I expected.
The decor is completely fabulous, our particularroom was like stepping into Victorian times! Loved the roll top bath in the bedroom,and glass shower cubicle! Great bar and glamorous local clientele, buzzy atmosphere on Friday night. Gorgeous, cozy Dining room. Menu looked good, wish we had eaten dinner there! Breakfast service excellent in all respects, with friendly staff and delicious breakfast, great service. We will return without a doubt. So much better than any of the other three hotel we have stayed in while in Durham.
Toilet flush was tricky( but we did not complain.) Bathroom a little cramped but gorgeous!) Duty manager?... on Fri evening seemed to be having to try and do everything, from training the bar staff to booking us in, to running back and forth to dining room for Ice for the bar, changing a beer barrel, to showing us to our room. Talk about multi tasking!
Nice individual styled room
Very good hotel well worth a stay
We stayed in the le jardin room. It was very tastefully done out with little extras included such as wine an chocolates. The room was made so much more appealing with the fab private hot tub. Well worth a dip.
The comfy bed, very stylish bathroom an the fabulous hot tub.
The customer service skills of the staff was brilliant. The rooms are beautiful and the food was top notch. Thanks again. Next time il have to try one of the lodges :)
Thought room would have been bigger, looked a lot different on the website
My girlfriend and I visited for the night and found the staff very friendly and efficient, the decor beautiful and location fantastic. Breakfast was delicious too !
The room was a little on the warm side even with the aircon at its lowest.
Breakfast excellent-hard to get perfect eggs Benedict and breakfast waitress outstandingly helpful.Lovely relaxed atmosphere!
Minor maintenance needed
linda very helpful.
shower not working. boyfriend got parking ticket as was not told to move car for camera men. light in hot tub loose. would not stay here again. could not book restuarant 4 dinner no spaces as we were told people outside book so we had to go out but linda got us a taxi bless her.
Staff were friendly great location
Room was small and dark, breakfast was poor cold beans uncooked mushrooms.
The bath in our room
It's like a scene out of the Time Machine with Rod Taylor you expect his Time Machine to land in the back garden while you are having breakfast. Great place
Really sumptuous décor. Lots of individual unusual style. Delicious, high-quality breakfast. Very quiet location.
One tiny criticism. A couple of times the lovely staff weren't where they should have been due to multiple duties.
The high standards maintained
Lovely ambience, well appointed and comfortable. Staff great. Location very good.
Just a tad warm.
Loved the food and hot tub in garden.
Lighting in the room a bit gloomy
Location is fantastic for seeing Durham City.
Over the top decor for my taste.
The room was outstanding! The four poster king canopy bed was so comfortable and just what we needed after a day's travels/sightseeing. Wine to our room, a hot bath in the roll top tub in our room made everything extra special.
Staff at check-in were less than welcoming, actually felt like we were annoying them or interrupting their time. Fortunately the breakfast staff and a lovely breakfast made up for the night before. Due to confusion from the check-in staff to the check-out staff, still trying to sort out the room charges - four items appear on my credit card.
Excellent, good value evening meal. Great staff and atmosphere.
Really poor breakfast. Having stayed here twice before disappointed to find no continental option but bacon like old leather, hard fried egg yolk and a very dodgy sausage! Fruit okay if you want to peel an orange or mango!
Fabulous boutique hotel
