Stayed at this Guest House for one night on the 13th September with my Ma and sister (whose studying at the Uni). Lady we met on the Saturday early evening checked us in and was warm/welcoming etc. I was placed in the only room on the ground floor sandwiched between the reception, breakfast room, entrance hallway and outdoor street so...

I stayed one night before the University Open Day, while my son stayed in a hall of residence. I definitely got the better deal. The B+B is beautifully situated about 10 minutes walk from the station, and 5 minutes from the city centre, on a quiet street with a view of (you've guessed it) the castle. Its a lovely Georgian...

First of all - fingers crossed your son gets his place - when we will be able to welcome you back to Castleview once more. It was with the greatest of pleasure that we all got round the computer and read your review. Your comments were so comprehensive and kind. It is so rewarding to respond to and welcome guests...

Very friendly welcome, lovely room with the suggested castle view, very good breakfast - I only spent one night here but would return with no hesitation after the quality of the stay and recommend this guest house to anyone wanting to stay in Durham, as a colleague had done for me after staying there herself.

I've stayed at this B&B a few times as my daughter is at the Uni and each time have slept in a lovely room. This time though I came with my son and, despite asking for a double when I rang as he is 6'6" and needs the room, we had two twins, one of which was on the ground... More

This lady booked and was allocated 2 twin bedded rooms at the lesser priced single occupancy rate. We found out later that in fact 3 people had stayed and so charged her accordingly - which did not please her. 2 people came down for breakfast 15 minutes after time but were still served with full English breakfast. A third person... More

We stayed three nights in this character, excellently located guest house. The beautiful old building is within easy walking distance of Elvet Bridge, the Cathedral and Castle. The rooms are very spacious, look to be newly decorated, have wonderful bathrooms with power showers, bidet toilet seats and comfy beds. The in room drinks selection includes not only various teas and... More

a warm friendly greeting by both staff and other visitors. A very comfortable room with an excellent choice at breakfast. As we travelled by train parking was difficult B&B is in a hilly area but surfaces good, as weather was dry all time of our trip not sure what like in wet or icy

A lovely B and B in a great location - easy walking distance to the centre. Very nice clean and comfortable rooms. We checked out the exact location on google street view, and that was useful. The parking could perhaps be awkward, but we were fine, as we acted on the tips to go to the B and B to... More

We were in Durham for an Open Day at Durham University and we could not have picked a better place. Our room was on the top floor with a comfortable double bed and lovely fresh linen, a small desk and en-suite bathroom which had been recently renovated. The room is tastefully decorated and has a small TV so we could... More

Glad you and daughter enjoyed your stay. Sorry you thought our TV small - it is 42 inch screen - any bigger and it would be too large even in this very large room. I enjoyed giving you both a lift to the station and hope you caught your train ok. Mike More

We had a 2 night stay at this B&B and I have to say it was excellent. Beautiful, clean, modern rooms and a superb, fresh cooked full English breakfast. Excellent value and I would recommend this to anyone. £100.00 per night was a good price. You will receive a very warm welcome. If you want a good place to eat,... More

The house is outfitted and decorated with superb taste. The location could hardly be more central. The staff was welcoming and helpful. The breakfast was excellent. Very good value for money. The students were a little noisy Saturday night, but we slept well anyway. Exceptionally lovely garden shows loving care by owners
