This was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The food was disgusting, room was very tiny - had to sit on bed to dry hair, not room for chair. We travelled with Alpha Travel and no blame on them. At mealtimes we had to share our table with six other people and could not give our order until... More

As a group organiser, we booked into the Durrant House Hotel with great expectations. I had 48 passengers with me, we had no complaints at all, hotel was spotless, food was wonderful, and plenty of it. My 2 gluten free ladies, were extremely happy with there choices. The Restaurant staff were always on the ball, with Tim (restaurant manager) in... More

This hotel was dripping with flower filled baskets when we first arrived. It looked stunning from the outside and the interior was very attractive too. It had huge glass crystal chandeliers in the glass foyer and ballroom ect. Aged but in a nice way with lovely wood panelling in many public rooms which gave it a homely touch. A large... More

I have been trying to raise a complaint with the Durrant since 4th July 2014 and despite phoning several times a week, emailing and even going in there in an attempt to speak with the manager in order to resolve my concerns, I am still waiting for ay type of communication from them. The receptionist was rude and very unprofessional... More

Picked the place by pure chance. Arrived quite late in evening. Plenty of parking space. Reception was friendly and efficient. Room itself looked like an 80s timewarp (which was nice) and the phone must have been old enough to vote (but it worked, which was the main thing). Window a tad tricky to open (needed a bit of a stretch).... More

Stayed for three night in August 2014. Very large hotel with good reception bar and restaurant. food very good and staff very helpful. However despite some effort to upgrade certain areas this hotel is still generally tired looking in many areas and is in need of a serious makeover. We had a "superior estuary view room" that was far from... More

This hotel needs some serious investment in order to bring it up to modern day standards. There is a small forest's worth of dark wood panelling in the public areas and plenty of marble surfaces along with a huge mural on the dining room ceiling. These features all give the Durrant House a very dated feel. Our bathroom had obviously... More

I stay in hotels around the country on a regular basis and had been looking forward to staying overnight in this hotel but never again. I had read the reviews but decided to give it the benefit of the doubt as it had mixed reviews. I don't usually give reviews but am so disappointed in this hotel and still do... More

We had the roast if the day which came with the biggest Yorkshire pud ever! One had the lasagne which was good and came with a generous portion of... More
