Arrived at about 1400hrs, greeted by friendly receptionist had room 28 which was an ensuite twin. Nice clean room with views over rear gardens,bathroom rather small, but you tend to expect that in an older hotel, but adequate, shower worked ok but the bathroom door was very tight, a struggle to close. The beds were large singles i would say... More

The conservatory is nice and new. Unfortunately our room was in need of modernisation as it was tired looking with ripped wallpaper. It was also quite small. To be fair to the receptionist he moved us to another room which was much bigger but sadly the room had an unsavoury smell. The shower was weak and would often take it... More

Unfortunately the elderly relatives that this is mostly for ,are now too ill to attend. We thought to be fair to the hotel we would cancel now ,in good... More

On arriving at the Bowburn hotel we found the member of staff on reception was not able to check us in as he didn't know how. After a four hour drive it was 11pm and our daughters were asleep so we just went straight up to our room. As we entered our family room (up plenty of stairs as our... More

This is our local and we eat here occasionally.If you order before 6 two meals off the lunch menu are only 8.95. The food off the main menu is still good value and offers more choice. We have always found the food of a very good quality and the burger is one of the best I have had. The staff... More

Such a friendly and comfortable establishment. Stayed 2 nights and was not disappointed. Off the main track but easy to find. Checked in originally for 1 night but stayed for 2 rather than other Hotels near by. Will look forward to staying here again.

We've never been to Durham before, so when we picked there, we trawled the internet to find a nice hotel to stay in. We came across the Bowburn Hall Hotel and decided to book it and just see. We arrived slightly earlier than check in time, but this was not a problem, the guy on reception was lovely (tall, slim... More

Looking for somewhere for Sunday dinner with my young family we chose bowburn hall as we hadn't been here before. We were in the main restaurant which looked like a wedding venue. The starters were mixed, I had pate (tasted nice but was the second plate as the first had a spider on it!!)and my wife had prawns which she... More

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
