Score from 170 reviews Superb
comfortable bed, clean facilities.
Very comfortable room; Excellent food, good value for money. Would definitely stay again if in the area.
Breakfast was very good
Friendly staff, tasty breakfast and comfortable room.
Shower temperature was difficult to control
The staff are very friendly and the food is excellent
Noisy water pipes when other rooms use the toilet etc. The room really needs black out blinds as street light outside window.
Staff and food was amazing
Shower very small and pressure is too low
Absolutely lovely place to stay, staff where all very helpful and friendly. Easy location to get too with shops near by. Liked the fact you could come and go as you pleased. The room was lovely and liked the fact you had wifi.
Good room size, friendly staff, great food, lovely location.
Wi fi dodgy. Pillows on the bed were very hard.
breakfast was fantastic. Bed was really comfy. Staff really friendly. Just remember it is a pub so expect a little noise but not too noisy as it shuts at a reasonable time
Food excellent and good value for money. Wine and drinks not too over priced.
WiFi was not working! Menu in bedroom was out of date
This was our second visit. The first time we got a nice spacious room.Not this time. No major complaints, for the price its a case of you get what you pay for.
Cramped very hot room. Tried to turn down radiator with no success. Some staff need to smile more.
A random choice that turned out to be a most enjoyable night's stay. The food was first rate and the whole experience was most pleasant and will certainly be returning in the New Year.
Only stayed for one night but was impressed by the helpful staff,a very comfortable room, an excellent choice of evening meals which were of a high quality as well as very good value for money. B and B cost was superb value.
Nothing to dislike. Could hear the quiz in the bar from our room but it was finished by 10.45 or so.
Nice small town/big village Staff were nice and friendly - would have marked higher if the breakfast chef had turned in. Breakfast inc. in price is good. Nice beer available
Small room Traffic noise Broken Window catch which meant the window blew wide open in the middle of the night and also while the room was unoccupied so returned to cold room and damp bed covers. Breakfast chef didn't turn in - No breakfast at all on 1st morning Poor shower with dirty shower rose.
Friendly staff Excellent food - both dinner and breakfast Convenient location Tea making facilities welcome
Bed slightly uncomfortable as it sloped away from the wall - possibly as the only way to get into it
The staff were all very friendly and keen to help in any way they could. Our bedroom was very clean and comfortable and a good size with plenty of plug points and places to store clothes etc. The food in the pub was wonderful and portions large. Breakfast was well cooked. Extremely good value for money.
Don't like only having a shower not a bath, but that's only me! The pub was having real problems with their connectivity - road-works had cut through one of their lines so the Wi-Fi was bad and also the TV was affected, but really not much they could do about this so not really a complaint against the pub.
Excellent food in the restaurant
Shower much to be desired. Room very hot - 2 radiators very near bed.
Resonable price and location have used it in the past
Even as a guest you cannot open a bar tab , everything is cash. You even have to pay on arrival. Very inconvenient for the business traveller. I wont use it again. Room 1 has a hole in the floor covered by a carpet and a bed that you must sleep in the middle of as the mattress is so worn you will fall out. Food was ok, excessive Garlick and they had run out of prawns. The Royal Oak down the road has none of these problems and is more griendly
Rooms very quiet, warm, and comfortable. Food portions huge. Great location.
Wi-Fi coverage poor in bedrooms - could connect but not access internet. Shower was tricky to get required temperature.
We had the three course meal in the evening of our stay which was brilliant. The starter I chose was black pudding, bacon, potato skins with sauce and it was delicious, best starter ever! It was huge so I had plenty left for my husband to try it too! Good food and the restaurant was nice and busy with lots of atmosphere and excellent service.
Our bedroom was good and had all we required, but as it was a warm night we would have liked to sleep with the window open but the church clock chiming meant that was not possible - maybe the rooms at the front of the hotel need aircon? It may not have been as loud for the rooms at the rear?
On checking in the staff were helpful and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. We had a nice meal on the first night, reasonably priced and plenty of choice. Breakfast was plentiful and tasty. We slept very well despite being on the front of the hotel, we never heard a sound. Well served by restaurants,buses into Durham and local shops Lanchester is a nice friendly place to stay.
Due to the lack of staff, when we went down for our evening meal we had to wait quite a while to be taken to a table. The young lady did apologise though.
It is handy for work, and it is a beautiful village location
They were unaware I had booked! I was lucky they had a cancelation
