Score from 659 reviews Fabulous
Location was OK, easy to find. Nice walks nearby. Staff were very nice.
Breakfast - ran out of food by 9.30 when breakfast is served until 10. No beans or bread for toast. Rooms clean but tired - noisy pipework in the night and doors that have to be pulled hard to close so banged shut.
Easy parking and access, excellent menu, ample size rooms, decent shower and hot water, friendly staff.
Room carpet not vacuumed
Great room , great staff, great food and even better company celebrating our wedding anniversary
Haven't slept in anything smaller than a kingsize bed in years so was very cozy
hotel was motel style with a lot of parking outside the rooms. rooms were cosy with character
food was expensive although the breakfast was excellent
I had booked an advanced payment on the three rooms I had booked !! when we checked in I was told payment would not be taken until checking out !! I informed my other guests of this and to pay on checking out !! on checking out they were informed the rooms had been paid for on my card!! I found it rather confusing to say the least. I complained and was told I would receive a phone call that day. that never happened I had to call them the following day. new staff was the excuse. staff training was to be given ! still no apology was given until I mentioned the reason for my again ! still not happy and wont go back
Poorly trained staff was the excuse i got and no apology until i asked for one !! also reminded the telephone conversation had taken over 10 mins I asked why payments were taken out at totally differing times my room payment was taken out on cheking out `normal` My other guests room payments were taking out on checking IN ??? I Then i had to ask them for the payment !! i asked at reception for a explaination !! i was told they would look into the matter and call me that day !! no call !! i felt i needed clarity on the differing payments So i called them !! i now wish i had not !! Rude and no wiser
The food really was great. Well presented and large portions. There also was a lot to choose from. Staff where really helpful.
Mattress was like sleeping in a hole. The room was noisy. Very close to the road and some kind of motor noise till 10.
First night was very noisy with men in car park at 1.30am shouting.
The hotel was beautiful. The staff on arrival were very friendly and attentive. The room exceeded my expectations. We loved the fact we could park outside of out room outside. We had an amazing stay in this hotel. Would 100% recommend.
The wifi was poor however this didn't hinder our stay.
First but not last visit. Rooms are excellent value. Love the motel style. Comfy beds and very private.
Wifi!!!! It is as bad as the other reviews say. Shame as wanted to stream music. Bar is pricey. Asda is near tho :)
Good food, well presented and cooked very well. Clean room with a decent bed. Reception was very helpful.
Poor Wi-Fi as they had issues.... No mobile phone signal on three different networks. The waiting / bar staff had very poor manners and talked very noisily so that the whole bar / restaurant could hear them. Loud dance music which didn't fit the ambience the hotel was trying to create.
Seriously good value for money
The fumes from what I believe was the heating flue needs attention. I suggest a taller chimney flue pipe. I forgot to bring this to the staff's attention when checking out.
location and room quality
room wifi poor, bar prices
Great for travelling with our dog as we had our own door and could park right outside our room.
The room was very clean and worth the cost. The staff were very helpful, we had lunch there and it was very relaxed and friendly :)
It was further away from Durham centre than we expected, £10 in a taxi.
Staff very nice. Good that dogs are accommodated free. Nice food.
Being able to park directly outside of the room and the novelty of having our own front door with direct outside access. Also very quiet.
Wi Fi very bad
Could not fault anything. Really nice room with large screen TV. Live pianist in the bar was great. Friendly staff.
The best thing about the Honest Lawyer... the bar/restaurant. The food is probably the best I've ever had in the North East, and the service is excellent. I'd happily visit the Honest Lawyer just to eat. The decor is very tasteful and the surroundings are spacious. Rooms are lovely - beds very comfortable.
Everything was excellent apart from the wifi. Unfortunately there's very little phone and mobile internet signal, so the hotel really needs to do something about the poor wifi.
This has always been my favourite for location and value for money. Staff very helpful.
Was in room 24 which has a link door to 23 which had 2 gentlemen in it that swore every other word. I drew it to their attention that i could hear everything they were saying. To no avail. On the other side No 22 everytime he turned the bathroom light on the extractor reverberations in room 24 sound like someone is trying to come thru the wall! Have always stayed here but too noisy now.
Great location if you are heading north or south on the A1. Great restaurant and the menu is surprisingly varied and reasonable value. Really liked the 'motel' layout of the rooms which meant I could park close to my room. Staff are excellent and helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable - importantly they have a proper hairdryer and the bathroom has a bath rather than just a shower!
I had a fab relaxing time and i only stayed in my room.. looking forward to coming back and trying the meals but for a longer time..
There was no late check out.
A fair price for a mediocre hotel close to Durham, in a convenient location for us.
No explanation or apology for fire alarm at 4 a.m. on a cold, foggy night. Unpleasant aroma of blocked drain in our en suite. System for breakfast coffee meant it usually had to be searched for and was always lukewarm
