We recently stayed three nights here, and had an excellent time. The room on the top floor had lovely decor, and a wonderful walk-in shower. The curtains were good and thick (unlike most which don't block out enough light for me) and with a privacy blind too. The cooked breakfasts were among the best we've had in a B&B. And... More

The B&B is only a short walk to the city center, and there are neighborhood restaurants and pubs nearby. It is also close to the railway station. There are lots of stairs, so if you don't like climbing, make sure you request a room at ground level.

My first impression of Castle View was wow! This immaculate Georgian house sits adjacent to a lovely medieval church. My room was bright and very welcoming. The bed was extremely comfortable with extra pillows supplied. The bathroom was super with an excellent shower , fluffy towels, little extras like cotton buds and shower cap. I have long hair and often... More

This B&B is very central, atop a steep hill within 5 minutes walk of the town centre, located in a beautiful old house with a view of the castle and cathedral. We had a large, very well appointed twin room on the ground floor with a lovely brand new bathroom with huge walk in shower. Everything you would be likely... More

I wrote a glowing review for this upscale guesthouse a few months back. A further visit has conformed my first impression. It is excellent in every way. How this cannot be number one is beyond me because I simply cannot see how it could be bettered. I was careful to check that this guesthouse was actually in the City because... More

Thank you so much Dencul for your repeat visits. I know how difficult it is to sit down and write a review. I was pleased that you pointed out that many guesthouses with a Durham address are not in fact in the city itself but in the outlying suburbs and some can be six or seven miles from town and...

I booked this B&B for two nights (19 and 20 of November 2014). The room was beautiful and the bathoom and shower were amazing. Everything was furnished to very high standards. While this is a university town, the B&B itself was very quiet and the windows blocked out any noise. The room was very clean and I appreciated having my... More

Mr wife and I spent two nights there 5 and 6 November. Not easy to find, because of the one way system, but after that everything was perfect: the house is immaculately restored and tastefully decorated throughout; the bedroom and toilet/shower were lovely; breakfast was fine; staff were friendly and helpful; and the location and view - is ideal.

Your wife and yourself were the perfect guests. So glad you wrote to highlight our central position in our lovely city. ( we are the closest GH to the centre ) We agree that our one way street system is sometimes a little difficult but hey it comes with the turf and we do manage to park all of our... More

We stayed in this beautiful clean house with lovely bathroom and pretty garden. The location is brilliant, it's really near to the town, but the welcome needs some work. A few little niggles such as the parking has to be paid for outside and although we were given a voucher it was only for 3 hours so we made up... More

Thank you for your review and the kind comments about our accommodation. I am afraid it looks like our son did not explain our parking procedures very well. Generally we like our guests to park directly in our exclusively residential parking cul-de-sac outside the guest house. We then give them a free 3 hour or 9 hour permit depending on... More

We booked two rooms for the family and we were on the top floor all together in our own private area, which was great. The rooms were very smart, clean and nicely decorated and furnished with modern bathroom fittings and great showers. Beds are very comfortable. It is very well located for the town and the breakfasts were good. We... More

I regularly travel to Durham, but as it turned out, it was the week all the Students return to the University and I couldn't get into my usual hotel. I found Castle View on the internet and booked.
