Friendly staff. comfortable & spacious room. Safe car park which is locked at night. Superb food. Although on a main road it was very quiet at night. It is also very convenient to have a bar/restaurant on the site, especially one with such outstandingly good food.

Does what it says on the tin and then some! Clean comfortable room, very friendly helpful staff, good food well cooked, possibly the best breakfast I have eaten and that includes five star hotels, why would anyone want a buffet when your breakfast is cooked to order? Excellent value for money, those who have been disappointed have either been very... More

Great hotel and friendly. Our room was very comfy and smart. The setting was magnificent and easy to get to most places around Fort William. The food in the resturant was very good. To thing they need to improve on and they are the shower in room3 and make available the cooked breakfast a Buffett style. But other than that... More

The rooms were clean and quiet enough but nothing special with regard to decor. A couple of strange things were that the tea/coffee making stuff was hidden away in a cupboard so we thought we didn't have any until someone in the bar told us to look there. Also, the way the bath has been put in means either sitting... More

What a really nice hotel - the rooms are modern and clean (and room 2 was quiet). The food in the bar was super and the menu extensive. All the staff were friendly. We were surprised at how many customers were there throughout the day bearing in mind it isn't in the middle of town but just outside Chester-Le-Street, but... More

Found the Moorings on the Internet when looking for a place to stop for one night between business meetings in the North East. It is a very comfortable place, a cut above the boring business hotel chains. It is set in beautiful countryside and is only minutes from the A1(M) by car so handy for Newcastle as well as Durham....

Wow, this is the nicest hotel i have stayed in. We had a hot tub room, it was spectacular. The three course meal and full breakfast the following morning were out of this world. The bar manager 'Steve' was wonderful and could not of been more helpful. We will definately be going back

We (4 guys) recently had 2 rooms for after the Ashes down the road. We booked this place purely for convenience as it was a close taxi ride after a few drinks at the cricket but it was much more than a bed for the night.Our plan was to have a day at the cricket, nip back for shower then... More

A really nice out-of-way inn. Very accommodating staff and the rooms to a clean, fresh and contemporary standard. Bistro is very popular and the food quality and variety was very good. My room was a bit pricey but maybe that was the 'Ashes' factor but will stay again although next time I will bring an alternative to American Express as... More

We stayed for one night after visiting Beamish and had a vey enjoyable stay. The room was spacious, the bed was very comfortable and we had a large bathroom with bath and shower. We ate in the Bistro which was very good and the service was excellent. Breakfast was served in the upstairs restaurant, there was plenty if choice and... More
