Last minute booking! Great food, friendly, attentive staff - quirky and quaint decor - loved it! If in this part if the world again would definitely stay here! Have no hesitation in recommending this hotel - we stayed in a family room - loads of room for us all! The road did not bother us at all was unaware it... More

Booked this Inn on Booking.com, which didn't do it justice. Photos didn't show lovely exterior, pleasant bar & super rooms. Really impressed with this place, except the breakfast, it really lets it down, tables were all all squashed into small part of the area. We couldn't get to the food because the tables where other diners were, were so close... More

We stayed here for 1 week. This is advertised as a B & B, but they are under selling their Inn, as it is in reality a brilliant gastro Pub. very friendly and competent staff with a good breakfast. The pub has brilliant well priced evening meals. That meant we didn't have to go out in the evening to find... More

Easy to access location, free to come and go as you please, just a short walk up from the rail station. On arrival we were impressed with the appearance of the hotel - nice decor, dining room and bar area seemed pleasant. Checked in and queried the room as we has been allocated a family rather than double. Reassured, we... More

We booked this inn for a Saturday evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We did request a larger room when booking and were given room 2 although we could not say whether this was in fact one of their larger rooms or not. On arrival we got the last space in the car park' tightly squeezed next to the large... More

The hotel is situated alongside a busy road and has a bus stop right in front of it. If your room is on that side (as was ours), you'll have the noise and fumes of the bus during the day. Luckily we spent most time in lovely Durham city. Breakfast is as the rooms, ok, not special. The hotel has... More

My friend booked a table for eleven of us to celebrate her birthday at this hotel and I have never experienced anything so awful in my life. We waited 1.5 hours for the food and then they forgot to serve two meals. When one of the two came (the other was refused because everyone else had finished), the meal was... More

Food here is great, although would benefit from a bit more variety. The duck is to die for. However; the rooms are a bit of a letdown. Clean enough but the showers don't work properly and they're a bit dated. Plus breakfast is just some ham and cheese or cereal. All very nice just would be nice to have something... More

We stayed overnight to visit Durham. What a find! Don't be put off by the traffic as we slept extremely well and it wasn't a problem. The spacious room was spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and tastefully furnished. Our meal that evening was first class! Plenty of choice and well presented. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Although breakfast was... More

My wife and I decided to dine here last week. We were both disappointed with our meal and the service that was provided. The meal was not of the quality or the presentation that I would have expected for the price we paid. Service was virtually non existant, we were given knives and forks after the meal was served and... More
