Stayed here for one Saturday night, having a trip to Beamish museum. easy to get to beamish from here. Basic but clean rooms with everything we needed, above a busy pub which was fine. Went into Durham for an evening meal, about £13 in a taxi. Pre booked the full English breakfast which was excellent quality and a good price..Friendly... More

We found this hotel good value for the price we paid, yes it is a little dated ,but the rooms were clean ,sheets smelt fresh and towels were nice and soft. We had room 3 which over looked the high street, there was a disco going on beneath in the pub which did not bother us. The staff were friendly... More

We also have a free car parking space which is... More

Stayed at the hotel for one night and have to say was impressed by the size of room 1. Was a nice room overlooking the front street. The breakfast in the morning only cost £3.50 and was filling, would not like to see the £7.50 breakfast. Probably would have to share it. Only downside of the hotel was single glazed... More

I stayed at the Lambton Arms for three nights whilst visiting friends in the surrounding areas. I booked the room through laterooms.com and upon arrival there was a little confusion as the staff don't get all the required information (or something of the like) from Laterooms, however once that was sorted, I paid, and was shown to my room. The... More

Very cheap, chips are decent, food took ages to arrive and was average. Absolutely no atmosphere in the pub and there hasn't been for over 20 years. The staff are friendly although half of them seem to be hungover, nice and clean pub so will come back again. You get what you pay for and that.

Pleasant and friendly staff which served a fantastic breakfast :) but unfortunately the overall hotel rooms are in desperate need of refurbishment and decent cleaners. The pleasantness of the people who work there is spoilt by the awful conditions of the rooms - such a shame :(
