Have stayed in more expensive B&B's but have to say the comfort of a good nights sleep here was very good. The breakfast was nicely presented, though the toaster throws your bread out (have to be Ian Botham to catch it) does make a talking point at the breakfast table with other guests. Only 10 minutes away from Durham on... More

Thank you for your kind review. As you rightly say Moor End Guest House is convenient for travel into Durham and travel throughout the North East. The pub next door is very convenient for food and drink for those not wishing to go into Durham. The toaster does provide a little light entertainment and helps to 'break the ice' in... More

Moor End House was an easy find after a long day's drive. Martin made us feel very welcome, and recommended a good restaurant within easy walking distance. The beds were comfortable and the full English breakfast was fantastic. Convenient off street parking in the back. Highly recommend.

A real beautiful little guest house, which was in a fantastic location, there is a pub next door serving food and it was only a few steps away from the bus stop and in ten minutes you were in the centre of Durham. We were very lucky to have the double front room, which had lovely seating by the window... More

Mr. Smith made sure all our needs were met. The weather was cold, rainy, and windy, but the rooms were warm and wonderful. The shower was grand, which is more than can be said for many B and Bs!! A delicious traditional English breakfast was the best and a great start to a wonderful day in Durham. Five stars for... More

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.

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...
