we went here as wedding guests, couldn't believe at the bar prices and also charging for tonic water. Staff serving the buffet food had a bad attitude and looked totally bored, then before anybody knew it, they had cleared up and gone.

Stayed overnight whilst on business. This hotel has friendly staff and very nice atmosphere and excellently maintained premises. The gardens are very well kept with lots of seating to enjoy the space. The room we had was very well decorated with a good but slightly tired bed- though comfy. Was some dust on tiles surfaces in bathroom and on door... More

WOW what an amazing wedding we had at Bowburn Hall. From the moment I picked up the telephone and spoke to Nikki to the last minute we left we could not of wished for anything more. Every detail, every request, just everything was amazing. Nikki and her young professional team are wonderful, she makes everyone feel special especially us. We... More

This place is tucked away but really close to the city centre and motorway. It's really quirky and I enjoyed it very much. Friendly staff and lovely breakfast. Rooms need a little tlc but they're clean and cosy with good views and nice furnishings. Laundry service was perfect too

Attended a wedding and stayed the night at this hotel and it was a fantastic day. Staff were very helpfull and the food brilliant. The room was lovely and clean with everything you need and the en suite had a bath and shower which was lovely and clean. Would advise that the bride and groom renew their vows every year... More

Lovely Hotel on outskirts of Durham, & very reasonably priced. Friendly staff & far enough out to avoid noisy groups etc. Dinner Menu had plenty on offer with daily specials. Had the Haddock, Bubble & poached egg with Bearnaise Sauce, which was outstanding. Highly recommended.Prices all round very reasonable. Worth another visit.

This hotel can be described as many things. The location is ideal for visits to Durham , Newcastle etc, being situated about a mile from the motorway. The hotel on arrival looks very grand and this pleasant feeling is taken inside with good checking and helpful staff. Rooms aren't bad either, clean and reasonably equipped WiFi works well and is...

We ate here on two nights over the August Bank Holiday. This is clearly a popular restaurant as there was a 40th birthday party on one night and a wedding on the other. There was a separate room, divided by a curtain, for these events. The meals we had were delicious and on the plentiful side! The service was excellent.

We travelled 6 hours from the Isle of Wight to stay at The Bowburn Hall, to visit family. Upon arrival the place looked incredible, very grand but welcoming. We checked in for our 3 night stay, and found ourselves in one of the rooms at the top of the hotel. It was immaculate, comfy and large, the bathroom was lovely... More
