We were breaking our journey home from Scotland and decided to visit Durham as we had not been there before. We tend to like more up market B&Bs and as we didn't know Durham we felt that on-site parking and a city centre location would be helpful. Castle View Guest House ticked all these boxes so it was a good... More

If I was going anywhere near Durham in the next few years, I'd be highly tempted to not review this hotel at all for fear that I wouldn't be able to book a room again! It was that lovely! Both my room and that of my friend were lovely-- newly renovated (it seemed) with large bathrooms, large rooms and thoughtful... More

We stayed just the one night and had a twin room which was well equipped. Access to parking is a strong feature as is access to the historic part of Durham. The only reason I would not give Castle View 5 stars is the apparent non engagement with guests by the owners. Most guest houses at this level would provide... More

We stayed at the Castle View Guest House in Durham for a weekend city break during the summer and would happily recommend it to our family and friends. Our enquiry regarding a possible early check-in time was happily accommodated and we were given a parking pass to leave the car directly outside the front of the guest house for the... More

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
