Stayed here as my son forgot to let us know when his graduation was so every bed near Durham was booked up. As it turned out, it was only 15 minutes from the university. The room and the bathroom were modern and spacious and very clean and comfortable. Service was fine as were all the staff. The evening meal and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights whilst over for daughters graduation, had a double and a twin room, the double (room 30) was gorgeous and plush and the twin (room 25) was nice and comfy, exactly what you would expect for the price. The breakfast was good and tasty and the evening meal we had on the first night was excellent,... More

We had our wedding at Bowburn Hall on friday 29th May 2015 and we really couldnt fault a single thing about it. Every thing was perfect and the staff went above and beyond to make sure both us the guests and we were happy. The food was perfect and portion sizes were generous, room turn around was quick and everything... More

We arrived on a Sunday lunchtime, early for check-in and eventually when someone came to reception we were told. bluntly,check-in wasn't for another hour. no 'would you like to sit in the bar until your room is ready', They were very busy with the lunchtime carvery and this is what took precedence over hotel guests. We went for a drive... More

Burnt spring rolls, lumpy mash potato, over cooked carrots and the cauli, well, guess its off to the dentist tomorrow, trying for a new set of teeth! Sorry but will never eat there again, considering it cost me £90 for three adults and a child. Consequently, removed from our short list for a wedding venue.

Myself and my wife had our wedding reception here a little over a fortnight ago, cannot find fault with a single element of the day. Every single guest raved about the food which was lovely and even good sized portions which you often dont get at these things, the room was done out exactly as we had requested and the... More

We came here at the weekend for my sister's wedding. What a gorgeous hotel. Staff were helpful and attentive, rooms were clean and food was beautiful. We stayed in a family room with our 2 small children. There was plenty of room for all four of us, including a Moses basket for the smallest.

Enjoyed a lunch with a friend, the food and drinks are slightly expensive. Has lovely garden area with seating to sit outside. There is a fantastic outside play area to keep children occupied, it would be good to have seating closer to the play area.

We spent one night there when visiting Durham and Durham cathedral. The place may be good as a local wedding venue but not so much if you are a traveler. They were short staffed when we checked in on Thurs night. Had to track down reception clerk. The room was set up for businessman, very cramped with luggage, and a... More

Attended a wedding reception here - all was good. Excellent grounds and great to sit out in the sun. Food was good and room was perfect. All the staff were very helpful all day. Not many rooms to stay overnight though - but good venue
