Positive Reviews

Good Central Location in Durham.

The location of this hotel is one of its main plus points. In summer time the outdoor tables and chairs are a nice touch. There is a green woodland to the rear of the property, adding to the pleasant garden area. The hotel is in a very convenient location for those wanting to visit Durham’s historic sights and other attractions being only a fifteen-minute walk away, but also easily accessed by car.

Characterful and Comfortable Hotel.

The hotel is quirky and old time charming feel due to the age of the building and the décor of the interior. Rooms are nicely furnished and guests appreciate the provision of tea and coffee and ironing facilities. The beds are comfortable and the bathrooms are spacious with a modern feel.

Great Food Particularly Breakfast.

Former guests are complimentary about the food on offer in this hotel. The breakfast menu offers a range of options from continental to a full, cooked breakfast. The restaurant offers a wonderful menu for evening meals and serves well-thought-out dishes. It also has a superb choice of wines.

Negative Reviews

Internet Issues.

Wi-Fi in rooms is advertised by this hotel, however it the signal only extends to some rooms. There is however, a full signal available in the communal lounge area. Some found that the Wi-Fi when available, gave filtered search results with some websites blocked.

Restaurant and Bar Separate to Hotel.

The pub and restaurant are attached to the hotel, but not actually a part of the same business. Food and drink must then be paid for separately rather than being conveniently added to the hotel bill.

Bus Noise from Next Door.

Beside the hotel is a large bus depot. This begins operations extremely early in the morning the engine sounds can wake guests up.
