Staff were briefed at each changeover about my food allergy which made it really helpful only having to explain once. Soya milk was provided. The meals were delicious and the quirkily furnished room was a delight. Would recommend it for a couple wanting something a bit special and different for a celebration.
The décor of the room (The Cruise) was interesting but a bit dark for such a small room The bath was lovely to look at but difficult to get in and out of and the location of the taps meant hot water burnt your leg if you were topping the water up The non slip mat was very dirty underneath I found the previous occupant's hairs on the floor
The staff and the location
The whole shebang - inc our railway-themed Edwardian Express room
Could hear other guests at night.
Unusually decorated rooms, good location, good food, good place to stay
The beds had not been changed and had hairs and stains on the sheets. The tea and coffe had not been refreshed and the towels were dirty. the staff weren't helpful just apologised and we had to argue for a new room.
A bit expensive, but you get what you've paid for :))
Very stylish rooms! Bathtub could have been bigger, but was alright anyway)
Hot tub. Friendly helpful staff
lovely unique hotel with different themed rooms, courteous helpful staff, close to all amenities.
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 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.
The staff and the food
Rooms are far smaller than they look on the pictures
Good breakfast, good location
our room was over priced found it small
great staff good food
Hot tub had an earring and a glass at the bottom of it Room had no bath £295 for one night very pricy
Stayed in garden lodge was our second time stayin here liked the fact the hot tub was under a roof as was spitting
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.
Could no fault anything. Staff for friendly and helpful.
staff were very friendly, plesant,and welcoming, would deffinatley stay again, breakfast was beautiful.
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!
Friendly staff and breakfast was lovely! Really comfortable bed
Small thing - light switch very fiddly and lights a bit disappointing.
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.
- Great interior design of hotel - Lovely food - Comfy bed - Good location
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.
The food and the room.
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.
super location. Excellent food and very helpful staff.
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.
Set perfectly in the Classy outskirts of Durham. All rooms extremely smart and classy.
After looking at the hotel on line, it was exactly as I expected.
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!
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.
