Staff and breakfast
Wifi not always on or working
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.
Clean and spacious bathroom with huge bath and loads of hot water which was noticeably soft compared with the hard water in the south. Exceptionally good restaurant beneath Farnley Towers called DH1. Nearness to city centre.
Uphill climb back to Farnley Towers from city centre. Bedding could have been more upmarket and the valances were a little grubby.
Nice place to stay.
The uphill walk from town.
Farnley Towers was fine. Room was squashed for 3 children and they hadn't put out extra cups or towels though a family room was booked. This was rectified on request Durham out of term time seemed like a ghost town but not the fault of Farnley!
Service at breakfast.
Pillows uncomfortable and affected sleep adversely.
WiFi and the Hill back.
Room was very comfortable.
Breakfast quality was ok but measured (one sausage and one rasher of bacon) The room I had had windows at street level. The bathroom only had frosted glass and the bath was under it. I was having a shower when someone walked past. It was very disconcerting.
We had a super room with a huge bed.Very quite.The staff were excellent.
A bit slow at breakfast poosibly due to everyone arriving at the same time.The food itself was excellent.
Poor wi-fi connection in our room
Spacious and handsome room. Great view out of our window. Fabulous breakfast that was served promptly and wait staff was very friendly and attentive.
Wifi was NOT available in our room and only intermittently in main areas. Room not made up and towels replaced 1 of the days (had a wedding and were still in the room when they came to clean, were told they would come back).
5 mins walk down into town. House has bags of character
Lovely building, but the decor was not in keeping really. Standard B&B type furniture.
We had a lovely stay at Farnley Tower Hotel. The rooms were very spacious & comfortable. The hotel itself is a beautiful building with many lovely features. The staff were helpful & very friendly. Lovely breakfast & great location. Excellent value for money & woul stay here again!
Racked my brains & couldn't find anything I didn't like.
Good sized breakfast portions.
Chaos at reception. Petty 2% surcharge on credit card payment. No other hotel does this. No mention that hotel an uphill walk from train station.
No wifi No aircon No apology Aged worn facilities Breakfast stops too early at 9AM Ground level room must open windows to get air due to heat, but not no security as open to street View of rubbish! RIDICULOUSLY overpriced for what it is
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel great location and grounds. Fantastic breakfast served excellent value for money.
