Score from 640 reviews Very good
Very comfortable quiet room and spotlessly clean. No noise from the street or in the rest of the building. The breakfast was delicious with excellent quality ingredients. Staff were very friendly and helpful. 5 stars!
The staff and the food
The shower curtain in the Edwardian Express room bathroom was not longer enough, thus allowing shower water to run onto the bathroom floor, making it a hazard.
Good breakfast, good location
Rooms are far smaller than they look on the pictures
great staff good food
our room was over priced found it small
Stayed in garden lodge was our second time stayin here liked the fact the hot tub was under a roof as was spitting
Hot tub had an earring and a glass at the bottom of it Room had no bath £295 for one night very pricy
Could no fault anything. Staff for friendly and helpful.
The way other guest spoke to staff members. Obviously that's not the hotel fault but i did feel bad for hotel staff. I loved spending the night at thag hotel and would go again.
staff were very friendly, plesant,and welcoming, would deffinatley stay again, breakfast was beautiful.
Friendly staff and breakfast was lovely! Really comfortable bed
Stayed in bijoux loft and there was mould in corner of shower as well as the rusty soap tray. The bathroom had a strong smell of urine too. We expected more considering the price!
My room was done out in imitation of an Edwardian railway suite. It was very well done - great bed, admirable bath. Would definitely stay again if I could get the discounted rate.
Small thing - light switch very fiddly and lights a bit disappointing.
- Great interior design of hotel - Lovely food - Comfy bed - Good location
The food and the room.
We Booked through booking.com on a credit card and weren't made fully aware of the fact the room charge hadn't been taken, so we were shocked when on leaving we had to pay for our room. Think this could if been made more clear.
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!
