A pleasant stay in a charming building. The room we stayed in overlooked the gardens at the rear during the sleeping hours it remained quiet with no internal noise to contend with. The food albeit a set menu was of a good quality in plentiful supply. One issue we had was very annoying the bathroom door was glass and allowed... More

Food came out fairly quickly which was great, plates and bowls were also hot.. But the food that was served was very disappointing for several of us eating! I had the chicken pasta... More

This hotel has really friendly staff, but unfortunately the hotel was really like a 'pub' - very busy serving lots of families and small children. The bedroom was clean enough, but the rooms downstairs - restaurant etc really needed to be given a thorough cleaning! It just seemed 'grubby'.

I've been to this hotel a few times when in the area for a drink or for some food, and every time the staff are friendly and well mannered. Food selection is always good and its just a nice little hotel with character,

I wanted to book a hotel close to the University for our daughters Graduation. I'm so glad that I chose this hotel as the grounds were lovely, food excellent and very reasonable, rooms were very comfy and elegant. All five family members agreed. The atmosphere was very relaxed, in fact after a very busy, long day at the Graduation, my... More

I stayed here for two weeks while I worked in Durham for a month. Out of the three hotels I stayed I will definitely be returning to this one. The food is amazing, the staff are great. Rooms are clean and nicely sized rooms. I stayed in three different rooms all great. Only thing I would mark down on is... More

We visited for an early tea. £10.95 for 3 courses, enjoyed our meal, and enjoyed the location in the conservatory. I would agree with some comments that it could be clearer that you order at the bar, but that is the only thing I would say. For lunch or an early tea though, we shall certainly go again as it...

We had a double bed... More

Booked a double but my partner didn't travel so I asked for a single. I was shown to a very small room and decided that a double was in fact needed. In my room I settled in to find that the TV didn't work so I was given another room over the bar and I could hear the Adele tribute... More
