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
Helpful friendly staff Very good food
Bar, room, dining area, location.
Breakfast is excelllent
Room was a bit dusty
Unfortunately the restaurant wasn't serving food the evening we stayed. However the breakfast was very delicious. Location is fab.
Looks lovely on the surface ! They obviously had the right idea at the beginning. The room was tatty, loo seat broken, huge walk in shower and shower head but no pressure, smelt damp and had black mould. dressing gowns seen better days. Dusty coffee cups and the tea chest/trunk scruffy, smelly and fit for bin. Shag pile (germ collector) grubby rug (rugs r awful and should never b found in hotel rooms)!! The blinds on the doors and windows need replacing.
We stayed in the Ruby room, and loved it! Lovely location close to the river. We enjoyed the restaurants and the sites in Durham. We went for a morning walk and jog along the river and then had breakfast in the hotel - best croissant I've ever had!!
Location cleanliness food and staff all a credit to get be hotel . Loved the themed rooms something a bit different from the normal .good value for money
We arrived in Durham for the University Open Day and received a warm welcome from the staff who were very attentive. My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious meal in the restaurant of fillet steak and the vegetarian tagine. The breakfast of eggs benedict was fantastic and a great way to start a day of University trekking.Chocolates in the bedroom were a nice finishing touch.
Only downside was the pillows were not the most comfortable, the shower rail in the bathroom was pretty rusty and it became apparent that the thin walls enabled you to hear every word of fellow guests conversations which woke us up in the morning.
The staff were very friendly and couldn't be faulted in any way.
There is very little soundproofing between the rooms and we had a very loud oriental couple next to us who managed to keep us awake 'til 3 in the morning.
Excellent hotel. Been wanting to stay for ages and were not disappointed. Lots of nice little touches.
Excellent. All I would change is the background music.
I stayed in the loft suite and it was beautifully decorated and it had the comfiest bed i've ever slept in. The breakfast was always lovely. The hotel waa right in the centre easy to get to the shops and the cathedral. I Definately recommend staying here if you go to durham for the night.
A quirky hotel with interesting decor and friendly staff. Great location for exploring Durham
No car park, so had to pay to use public parking. Found some at 60p an hour.
Great location for exploring the historic centre.
We ate at the restaurant on our first evening. The starters and mains were good but the creme brulee's were the worst we have ever tasted. Bizarrely they served our first course with the cocktails. I am gluten intolerant and notified the hotel when I booked. For breakfast I requested eggs benedict with gluten free toast. I was served poached eggs. As I found from the reaction the toast was not gluten free. Avoid this restaurant! The decor is interesting but getting past its best. Simple things like toilet roll holders are left broken. It is a great location but the hotel is no longer run well and you can do better.
Stylish room which was extremely comfortable. The staff could not do enough to help and made sure we had everything we needed. Breakfast was very, very good. We will definitely go back
location near to city centre
occasional banging of doors but this quietened down at night. Paying to park car
Durhams great Gadds a very nice freindly hotl
Hotel very quirky and original through out all public areas, whilst having a cosy and homely feel. Our room, the Express, was very well thought out with great attention to detail. Staff and owner very friendly and welcoming. We had a fantastic stay, would and will definitely stay again.
The only critism I would have is that we would have liked to have been able to check in slightly earlier, but no big deal. Also, if staying here, bring plenty of £1.00 coins for parking.
Bedroom rather cramped
Loved the originality and quirkiness. Friendly staff.
Would be nice to have an out of hours room service...potential for up selling here!
Location breakfast very good
Excellent central accommodation .. Beautiful room .. Lovely extras ... Fantastic sole use of hot tub... Beautiful bathroom and amazing power shower. Comfortable bed with quality clean bedding .. Excellent food and drinks ..
Staff at breakfast inexperienced !!! A smile here and there too would have made a difference. A better hair dryer in the room ...
So friendly and helpful .. Staying on my own.. They allowed a friend to join me for breakfast with no notice .. Kindly didn't charge .. Super staff.. Amazing location.. Steak was fab ..
Chips not quite triple cooked..they were attentive in dealing with it
Each room had a theme which we liked. The breakfasts were very good with lots of choice. Didn't have an evening meal at the hotel but the menu seemed good.
The only problem is the parking, having to feed the parking meter but it's clear on the booking form that this is the case, so it was expected.
