(2 lovely days in Durham & Whitby) Typical chaos on arrival when staff had to check in a full coach party made worse by having to order what we wanted for the evening meal at the same time! Room clean & spacious with adequate facilities for a one... More

I've been unfortunate enough to be booked in here twice by my employers. Front of house is fine and the restaurant really can't be faulted for quality. Staff are no problem. Then get yourself behind the doors to the accommodation and you jump back in time Threadbare carpets covering a potholed corridor lead to rooms which should have been refurbished... More

We were eventually shown to our table and given a menu. We placed our order and got the starter which everyone... More

The Sunday lunch carvery was excellent. A choice of soup or Yorkshire pudding with gravy, a roast meat dinner and a pudding for £7.00 is terrific value so I wasn't expecting much. However, the Yorkshire pud was huge with proper gravy in a little jug, the roast beef was pink, thick and tender with a good choice of vegetables. An... More

Didn't think the majority of staff were... More
