Our one-night stay was deeply disappointing. The front reception desk was unattended, there was no bell, and we had to find someone to check us in. We had two rooms, a single and a double, and both were cramped with barely room to move. The bathrooms were tired, tiny and poorly laid out. The double bed was too narrow and... More

Was here for my friends wedding and had an amazing time venue was very personal and extremely comfortable. Food for wedding breakfast and evening buffet was brilliant and could not fault staff for friendliness and helpfulness. Was a little disappointed with our room as was extremely small (room10) for the price but breakfast and cleanliness where good.

We recently had our wedding reception here and we can't recommend this place enough. All the staff were friendly and extremely helpful and the food was delicious! We had guests who were raving about the meal they had had the night before as well. We have heard nothing but praise from all our guests for every aspect of Bowburn Hall.

Me and my partner went to bowburn for afew drinks and something to eat. The outdoor area to the hotel is a real gem, it's a brilliant size with an outdoor play area for the kids and has tables outside where you can eat and drink, the staff were welcoming and very friendly and the food was amazing, but portions...

Stayed for 2 nights whilst attending a friends wedding, we stayed in the 4 poster bedroom which is supposed to be one of the best rooms, it was nicely decorated but small and definitely not worth £170 for 2 nights ( that was with discount for wedding guests too ) that included breakfast which consisted of 1 sausage ,1 bacon,...

Situated within its own grounds Bowburn Hall just on the out skirts of Durham City just off the A177. The venue has been servicing the local community & surrounding areas for many years. To date there seems to have been several small but well thought improvements. Free range hens producing their eggs for the menu, also its own vegetables garden.... More

Lovely hotel partially hidden in the middle of a housing estate on the outskirts of Durham city. Sunday lunch was enjoyable and filling and the conservatory restaurant was comfortable and well furnished. Good family destination.

I often come here as it is so child friendly. The food is quite pricey but to us it's worth every penny, the play area keep the kids safe and happy before and after eating, so rare to find a venue that is fully enclosed and secure for children. The staff are so friendly and nice to the kids too!... More

Visited hear with the grand kids. Very impressive new beer garden with kids play area however that's where the good points end. The meal was very average and the service was non existent. Loads of staff on duty but appear to be very lazy and just stand round talking to each other. Asked for mustard and tomatoe sauce and it... More
