I am pleased you enjoyed your escape from the big city, Durham has a lot to offer being a world heritage site. There is also plenty to see and do in the surrounding area for which Moor End Guest House is ideally suited for travel throughout the North East of England. If you ever need to escape south of the...

A truly wonderful stay - rooms are beautiful, our host was gracious, and the location is great - not too far off the motorway and close to Durham. Breakfast was scrumptious, and there's a great pub/restaurant right next door. A 5-star experience all around.

I am pleased you had a five star experience. It is always reassuring to know that everything is to your satisfaction. The newly refurbished pub next door is an added bonus all round. Good choice of beers and lagers and excellent food at a reasonable price right on the doorstep what more could anyone want. More

Stayed at this lovely B&B for a couple of nights whilst celebrating our silver anniversary. The owner, Martin, surprised us by decorating our room with silver balloons and a bottle of Cava and chocolate cake - a very nice touch. Room was spacious and would have been very quiet had it not been for the high winds rattling around the... More

I am pleased you enjoyed your silver anniversary and trust the wild weather didn't spoil your enjoyment too much. As the name implies the house was originally on the edge of the moors, even though we are only a five minute drive from the city centre and hence the weather occasionally can be a little extreme, depending on the wind...

A lovely B&B. Really nice room ... Spacious, clean and peaceful. Comfy bed. Owner friendly and helpful. Breakfast really good. A lovely walk along the river into the city (even though first 10 minutes along a road it's worth it). If you don't want to walk a bus stop is over the road with services into Durham City every 10...

Thank you for your kind review and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay at Moor End Guest House. It is a lovely walk along the river into Durham although as you say there is also an excellent bus service, every 10 minutes during the day, or a five minute drive into the centre of Durham. More

We had a wonderful weekend in Durham and stayed at this guest house where owner Martin made us feel very welcome. Our rooms were extremely comfortable and there was loads of choice of what to have for breakfast. If we ever return to Durham, we'll definitely stay here again

We stayed here for a weekend at the end of Feb/beginning of March so that we could visit our son who studies at the University. Martin was very welcoming, the room was clean and warm and surprisingly quiet even though we were at the front of the house overlooking the road. Parking was fine once we knew where to go.... More

We selected Moor End as a base to investigate Durham and the North East for 3 nights. Belmont is a small village 5 min drive,10 min on regular bus and 30 min walk into Durham. Parking in the City not great so recommend cheap bus or perhaps walk in and bus/ cab back.Its a steep uphill return from the City!... More

Let's start with the positives. The bed was very comfortable. This b & b is also quite clean, and the owner responds positively to all reasonable requests. The building seems historic or at least quaint. Nonetheless, we didn't have such a happy experience. The b & b is quite a bit further from the center of Durham than we had... More

I am sorry that you found Moor End B&B a bit further from the centre of Durham than you had expected but then as you point out, the booking was made by others on your behalf. It is quite clear on the Moor End website and the various online booking sites that we are two miles from the centre of... More
