Hotel is situated right next to the beautiful Flass Vale, brilliant for that early morning walk before breakfast. You will probably be getting up early as the hotel lounge which is the hub of any hotel where you can chat with other guests and have the odd brandy closes at 7pm. So what do we do, we tried the bar... More

This could be a charming place, but the rooms really need refurbishing (tired, stained armchairs, old carpeting). Worst of all, the windows are sealed shut, with only a small fan provided. This is quite claustrophobic and uncomfortable when the weather is warm outside. We only tried the continental breakfast, which was decent and came with 2 soft boiled eggs. The... More

This was the second time I had stayed here, this time with my husband and daughter. I really like the atmosphere of a smaller hotel and this is in a stress free location for Durham, being far enough away to have spacious free parking but only 10 minutes walk to the very centre. Our room was spacious and the beds... More

Thank you for your lovely review. We are a small hotel and are able to give the personal touch which makes your stay warm and welcoming. There is a nature reserve at the rear of the hotel which give the setting of the hotel a country feel. Finbarr's restaurant, where breakfast is served, is one of the finest quality restaurants...

I stayed overnight after visiting the University. Room 1 was strictly a double, which would have been a bit of a squash, but fine for one. It had the usual facilities, including tea-making, and a fan, which came in handy; comfortable without being deluxe I'd say; but then it's half the price of the Marriott! Being across from the railway... More

The Kings Lodge had a large parking lot. The hotel was hidden on a street just outside the ring road in Durham. It had a public path going through its parking lot. As you came up the stairs to the hotel , there was a beautiful terrace and garden. The room was much larger than we had had the two... More

Thank you for your review. Although we are only minutes away from the centre of Durham (the castle and the cathedral included) we have a nature reserve as a backdrop to the hotel. This reserve is cared for by the council and several dedicated volunteers and this does give the hotel a country feel. We are pleased that you enjoyed... More

Stayed for 3 nights bed & breakfast. Ample car parking space and a short walk into the City Centre. The room was nice and very clean, bathroom small but functioning and the double bed very comfy. Breakfast was fantastic with a great selection of freshly cooked eggs, bacon, sausage etc...none of that pile in on Buffett thankfully. The staff are... More

The hotel is a bit away from the main tourist attractions in Durham - the Cathedral is not to be missed, but it is connected to a fabulous restaurant finbarr - well worth visiting even if you don't stay at the hotel. The rooms are comfortable country - certainly not deluxe but the bed was comfortable, the bathroom small and... More

Really enjoyed our time spent here - fantastic location, nice place and friendly staff. We had breakfast included and it wasn't amazing but nothing to complain about. Great place to use as a base for exploring Durham.

Very pleasant looking hotel, looks more like a Country House hotel backed by a wooded area, rather spoiled by the housing development next door, but this did not really affect our stay. We were quickly booked in on our , early, arrival, and were allocated a very nice, quite large, double room (4), with good quality en suite.everything is provided,... More
