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
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.
