Friendly staff and pleasant surroundings. Big room. Has everything you need for an overnight stop.
Very well-worn polycotton bedlinen - didn't feel very nice.
Helpful, friendly staff Clean spacious room Good WiFi access Short walk into town centre Helpful advice on where to go and restaurants
No evening meal on Sunday Tired bathroom
Really friendly, helpful staff. Spacious rooms. Comfortable beds. Excellent breakfast - good choice and nicely cooked. Quiet location but only ten minutes walk to the centre. Lovely building.
Location close to Durham city, but quite a steep climb when homeward bound. Quiet location, good parking. Good breakfast. Comfortable room.
Lack of drawer space in room, if staying several nights, but adequate for 1 night stays. Perhaps a little overpriced.
The stuf were very plesant and helpfull , I felt like home,everybody was smilling . It was my first time in England and I will definitely be back
I loved the bed nice and soft.
The walk up the hill.
Friendly and helpful staff, beautiful building, very good breakfast, quiet place
Can be a little hard to find if you're first time in the city
Lack of evening meal and distance into town as someone with limited mobility this was difficult.
Waiter at breakfast was great.
Walking up the hill alone in the dark.
Walking distance to town centre. Helpful staff Very good breakfast Nice room Very clean Parking on site
The breakfast was very good and service quick yet unobtrusive.
This was a really convenient location because we could walk easily to the town centre. We had a car and it was easy to leave the town to head for the dales etc. Breakfast was good each morning.
We had a lovely meal in the restaurant downstairs BUT the noise above coming from the breakfast room was dreadful and really spoilt a great but expensive dining experience. There was very little effort made by the management to interact with clients---a pity!
very clean and comfortable hotel, staff very welcoming breakfast good choice rooms very spacious and the en-suite too
Great location just 10 mins walk from both the station and the city centre. Loved the Victorian feel - this is no chain hotel. One of the staff was particularly helpful and offered me the office computer when the internet didn't work and I wanted to check the train times. Lovely quiet location and polite guests meant that I had a very peaceful and relaxed stay - no screaming children, music or undue noise at breakfast (or any other time). I'd definitely come here again.
The internet wasn't working, and the member of staff on duty when I checked in didn't appear to know this even though I found out the following morning from his colleague that it hadn't been working for weeks. My ground floor room suffered from the creaky floor upstairs early in the morning with guests getting up early. Maybe better to have an upstairs room if this would bother you (it wasn't a real problem for me). Breakfast was OK with a big choice of cooked food, but the scrambled eggs were watery and tasteless (and I imagine pre-made, not to order, given the speed with which it appeared), and the coffee was weak, if I'm going to be picky - both easily remedied with a bit of effort!
The rooms were clean and tidy. Plenty of storage space and good facilities.
Everything! Comfortable beds,lovely bathroom,TV in the room,good breakfast.
There was nothing to critise.
Great staff, very good breakfast. Nice room. Good location, walking distance to city center.
Bit noisy, could hear upstairs footsteps. Wifi was troublesome. Minor issues, though.

Location lovely views of Durham from our room comfortable spacious clean huge bed beautiful building lovely grounds
Breakfast was not the best
Clean look when walking into reception. Nice decoration in bedrooms Quiet location.
Breakfast, not enough tables for number of guests, therefore double sittings required, sadly the tables didn't get cleared efficiently and were full of dirty crockery to greet later guests.
The room was quiet and spacious, and the shower was excellent! It was a lovely place to stay after a long, exhausting day of travelling. It was easy to get to the city centre (just under 15 minutes' walk), and there is a bus stop nearby as well. The restaurant was not open on the day I stayed, but breakfast is included with the stay. Tea-making facilities in the room, which was convenient. Very near the train station, but a bit of a hike (given the terrain) if you have a lot of luggage! Given location, room, and helpfulness of staff, a very good value for the money!
The room could be a bit cleaner (a few small things in the room and bathroom), but the bed and linens were very clean and fresh.
Room and en-suite very clean, fragrant aroma when we walked in. Location was good for Durham, just a 10 minute walk into the centre, and very close to the A167 for travel to Chester Le Street for the cricket.
Didn't enjoy the cooked breakfast, will give it a miss if we stay there again.
Wifi signal was a bit weak, but it only made us enjoy the scenery more!
Not enough outlets but I figured it all out.
Spacious and comfortable room. Friendly people. Very good wi-fi.
