The Three Horseshoes is situated within 10 minutes’ drive of the beautiful city of Durham. With parts of the building over 300 years old, it still retains some quirky, original features.
Score from 241 reviews Very good
In the heart of Durham's city centre, within easy reach of the A1 and less than 500 metres from the castle and the train station, this modern hotel offers great value and spacious, modern rooms.
Score from 544 reviews Very good
Not aware I had a booking when I arrived.
Great breakfast. Room was above the pub and it was Quiz Night so a bit noisy. However the place has character and is convenientky placed for travellers with easy access to Durham.
Noise from pub below bedroom.
Nice, big and clean room.
We got a great welcome from Joey the bartender and several of the locals. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We had a great night of playing pool. Breakfast was very good with friendly staff doing the serving. We enjoyed our stay!
Not a thing!
the service was very good,breakfast good choice, nice and hot.Nice decor in restaurant and bar,room clean good facilities. Staff very friendly and welcoming.
The landlady katie was amazing. Hotel runs bcoz opf her
Owner on arriving and staff [ barman] in the pub later that evening very friendly and welcoming. Lady, whom I took to be the owner's wife very pleasant at breakfast which was also very good. Clean and tidy room but NOT in pub, but the downstairs front room of a converted terraced house two doors away.
Photo somewhat misleading. Pub on main road in a terrace. Classifying as Durham for someone without a car maybe factually correct, as per address, but it is pushing it a little- a £1.50 bus ride or a £6.00 taxi fare. Should I have done more research or should it state the distance from city centre?.
We heard the constant beat of music and Pub noise till 1:30 am
Good value for money and helpful staff, good transport links (if without a car)
Quality of room
the food , the staff, the friendly local people, using the pub, and value for money.
Breakfast was advertised to start at 7.30 but found the breakfast Room locked up and was told it didn't open til 8.00 a.m. Had a room at the front and had to keep window shut because of traffic noise.
The staff always had a smile and were very helpful. This place was pretty good for its age. If you can accept a little less for comfort and facilities, then you will be okay here.
The beds were a bit saggy - found it difficult to get a good rest. The toilet was slow to flush and never did completely. We wound up using the pub wash rooms down stairs.
Great first class breakfast,served hot and fast by polite lady.bar service polite.
Place needs moving into the twenties,paint work and papering needs lift,carpets need changing,furniture in room is outdated and cheap tat,tele never worked,water had to be got from sink,two milk sachets don't make more then one cup,coffee was poor quality,walls could do with fresh paint warm colours as room was cold,get rid of junk update from charity shop,repaint bar and doors light stain show there features.
I can only say that this establishment, is infinitely better than what's said about it. From the excellent staff, to the quality of the meals, to the very friendly clientele, to the rooms, the beds and general condition of the place itself. We were very pleased with all of the above (especially the staff and wholly decent bar custom) and have no hesitation in recommending this establishment to future customers. We will stay here again !
I didn't like what I read on Trip Advisor, mostly because it's downright untrue !
Breakfast was good
Evening meal was of very poor standard, looked and tasted unappealing and the amount of food you got was ridiculous. (14 chips). The meal we got would of been better served on a side plate rather than a dinner plate.
Excellent food, friendly staff, comfortable room.
Waitress had long hair which wasn't tied back and my son found a hair in his food. Also, there was a lot of dust and dirt behind the television stand and in the drawers.
Ambiance Staff Location Value for money
Food in restaurant was very good in the evening and the young lady who served us was excellent
Room very noisy from the main road, looked like laundry left in small hallway between rooms making it difficult to get past. Warning to others stairs very steep.
Glad I was only staying two nights
Room was dirty, cobwebs everywhere, bed looked as though it had been slept in without being changed and bit hadn't been emptied. Room was two doors away from pub so noise not a problem. Pub itself very dark and shabby, not inviting at all. Breakfast was fine with good choice but still didn't tempt me to eat or drink there
The staff is absolutely fantastic and extremely helpful! The regulars at the pub are just as great!
There is no one to let guests in before 4pm. Although there was a note that check-in was from 4pm, I didn't realise there wouldn't be anyone available, or that I wouldn't be able to leave my bags until I could check-in, etc. It's quite far from town centre, and although bus stops is really close and the ride is not long (definitely not in comparison to London distances...), if you are hoping to get a cab it might be difficult - nothing to do with the hotel, but taxis in Durham are quite hard to get hold of...
Just for sleep. Not comfortable as other b&b.
Clean quiet and friendly A good stopover on the way north
Very friendly pleasant staff, room reasonably spacious, food ok
The location - the road is really noisy and it was impossible to shut the noise out because the room then became too stuffy
Good food and beer
2.5 miles from city center and a bit noisy in the hotel rooms over pub
Good food, very comfortable and excellent, welcoming staff! Would recommend for anyone visiting this area.
