This is an older Guest House but the price is right. Very friendly and helpful hosts and excellent breakfast. Needs some upgrades. Convenient location on a busy road so back rooms likely quieter. Off street parking a plus.

Myself, my partner and my father have just had a wonderful 4 night stay at The Hill Rise Guest House. From the moment we arrived John and Jacqui (not to mention their dog, Charlie!) made us feel welcome, a theme which continued throughout our stay. Although they only took over in May, and have been extremely busy, they are slowly... More

For the price I was expecting something fairly basic. I proved to be a notch up on that with large clean rooms, comfortable beds and good quality enormous breakfasts. We were at the front and it is right on the main road. That may be a problem for light sleepers as there was a lot of traffic noise.

My husband, stepson and myself stayed overnight at Hillrise as we needed to be in the area the following day. There is parking outside on the main road and the guest house can be found within 1/4 of a mile of the motorway junction so no problems finding the place. We were met by the owner George who showed us... More

I have stayed at Hill Rise, many times. My latest stay was unplanned, and, although I arrived at 10.30pm, I got the usual cheerful greeting from George. This was swiftly followed by, coffee and biscuits, in the lounge. It is a guest house, with hotel service, and a fabulous breakfast. These are just some of reasons I have been returning... More

On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owner George, and he swiftly produced tea and biscuits for us and gave good directions to a local bar/restaurant for our evening meal. The following morning we had a superb breakfast and again, George seemed to produce fresh melon and strawberries from nowhere! Altogether a very enjoyable stay and we would not... More

The B&B is good, clean and provides all you need. Very close to Durham, the Adrian's Wall, Alnwich Castle and Gardens, it's a perfect starting point for beautiful journeys. George, our Scottish guest, is very friendly and a perfect gentleman. He gives you lots of information on places to visit, good restaurants, weather forecast,... It's a real pleasure to talk...
