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

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. The owner Mrs Williams was so helpful and flexible. I was unsure how long I would be staying, but she was extremely... More

Stayed at this Guest House for one night on the 13th September with my Ma and sister (whose studying at the Uni).

I have already responded to the points made by this. "huge six foot six youth" ( his own words ) when replying to his mother's review.

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...

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.

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
