Stayed just one night here with an nCrowd deal, on our way up to Durham. Very welcoming staff, and food exceptional! Limited menu included in the deal but I chose smoked haddock risotto for a change. It was fantastic, with lots of smoked haddock and a poached egg on top. The breakfast was one of the best. Whilst my husband... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and once again could not fault either the service or the accommodation. The staff were friendly, efficient and nothing was too much trouble. The food was, as usual, excellent and beautifully presented. We had no fault to find and will certainly return!! Thank you Simon and your staff for being so... More

We stayed on a 1 - night stopover on the way to Edinburgh on a KGB deal brilliant value. Lovely room, wonderful food in the Restaurant in the evening, good breakfast in the morning. Located just outside Barnard Castle this is a wonderful location. The bar was pleasant, the staff were great. What more can one say. EXCELLENT ! !

We visited here for Mothers Day lunch as we were staying nearby. Having e-mailed Simon prior to booking asking for a menu to be provided I received a prompt reply. Lovely food and polite friendly staff. Service was unhurried and everything we needed was provided. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Just on the edge of Barnard Castle, easy to find with plenty of parking. We had a twin room on the first floor, it overlooked the main road but traffic noise not too bad. The room was clean and beds comfortable. The bathroom light switch was in a strange place and took some locating! The evening meal was tasty, although... More

One couple stayed last weekend and had enjoyed their stay (the other 4 are due here next month). We had a different room this time (4) with french doors leading to a rooftop terrace, the room was lovely and warm... More

Stayed for one night with a KGB deal. We had a clean, warm and spacious room and as part of the deal had a very enjoyable two- course meal in the evening. The staff were very friendly and attentive and did their best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Left the following morning after a filling breakfast. Only... More
