Quirky individual rooms with attention to detail and fab bathrooms with Moulton Brown products. Well located with views of Durham cathedral. Food excellent & friendly service. Lovely to stay somewhere different to the standard corporate type hotel. Would stay again

Booked on the afternoon of arrival via an on line discount site. Bit of a punt from photographs. Stayed in the "INDIGO" room. Very nice except it was so small you could not roll, pull or wheel a regular sized suit case in to the room. Once in the room you had no where for the case to sit other... More

Spent the Saturday night here with my partner and stayed in the Eden Lodge (£250.00). This is a great hotel and the room was lovely. I note on their website there is only one picture of each room when you look to view the different room types and I would recommend to them that they add more. Nevertheless I have... More

This hotel is amazing. We spent my boyfriend's birthday sat in our roll top bath drinking champagne and it was perfect. Close enough to the town to walk out for food and drinks and we had no problems parking either. Definitely a hotel for romantic nights away.
