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

My wife and I stayed in Nov 2014. Booking and payment via the internet were simple and easy. We got a warm, friendly, welcome from Martin. No lift available but Martin carried our luggage up the stairs. Parking close by, good food at breakfast, and a comfy bed. Excellent value for money. It is an extremely good location for getting...

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

Very friendly and helpful host. The twin room was practical and had lovely decor and was clean. All facilities provided. The en suite shower was cold as there was no heating in there and the shower was tepid. But we only stayed one night so not such a huge problem. Comfy beds.

I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry you found the shower tepid, but on checking the shower and adjusting the temperature control knob the water temperature actually varies from scalding to freezing. More

Four of us stayed for 2 nights in comfortable rooms and our host Martin was welcoming and very helpful. Bearing in mind other reviews relating to late arrival, we were a bit apprehensive as a car breakdown could have made us miss the booking in window. A phone call as soon as we knew the vehicle was having to be... More

Clean, well-appointed rooms and very friendly, helpful proprietors. Martin and his wife went above and beyond, helping with our left luggage and a rental car. There's a good pub next door and it's an easy 10 minute bus ride to the city centre. Excellent breakfast. Can't go wrong here!

The proprietors of this delightful B&B should be proud of what they have achieved in this beautiful little guest house! The rooms are lovely; nicely decorated with some wonderful finishing touches. Breakfast was lovely and the owners very friendly and helpful. On our next trip to Durham I wouldn't even consider looking anywhere else, this is where we will stay.
