Perfect location for the city - a few minutes' walk to the river (riverside walk has the best views of the cathedral) and shops; over the bridge and you are in the centre, with the castle, cathedral, market place etc and plenty of places to east and drink. The guest house itself is in an old but attractive, well maintained... More

My friend and I stayed for 3 nights. We had a top floor room which was large and the beds were comfortable. It was hot and sunny when we were there and it was nice that we could open the windows. Everything was clean, breakfast was freshly cooked and tasty and the lady that cooked it was very helpful with... More

The B&B is just beautiful and immaculately maintained. The room had the best shower I have ever had! Breakfast was lovely, staff friendly and location perfect. We were in a twin room, so if I had to find anything that could be improved it was that our used towels were folded up rather than changed (I have no problem with... More

I have just returned from my first stay in Durham with a friend and would recommend this B and B to anyone. It is so close to the city centre, castle and cathedral with great views of the Castle just as the name suggests! The rooms were extremely comfortable, tastefully decorated and super clean. Breakfasts were generous with a good... More

We took two double rooms king en-suites at the end of May 2015 and would like to say how fantastic the rooms were in terms of size and the furnishings. We were looked after extremely well by the Williams who provide parking vouchers for your stay and serve an excellent breakfast. The location is perfect for visiting the main attractions... More

This guest house is very nicely located in Durham. It's easy to walk along the river, to the castle and the cathedral, as well as restaurants and shops. Breakfasts were delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful guest house, perfectly located and comfiest bed I have ever stayed in. The host was very accommodating and I would definitely recommend for anyone visiting Durham. Only downside was that I had to leave so early that I missed breakfast!

Stayed for two nights with my boyfriend, exceptional room very clean and tastefully decorated. The breakfast is always a very important part of our stay anywhere and this one didn't disappoint. Beautifully cooked by a very friendly housekeeper with plenty of choice and very filling. Easily the best we have ever had. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we would definitely stay... More

We spent two very comfortable nights at this upscale B&B located just across the river from Durham Castle and cathedral. The room was beautifully appointed with a large comfortable bed, top quality linens and a large modern bathroom that included a heated towel rack and an excellent shower. The full English breakfast was substantial and tasty. We loved walking along... More
