I have visited this establishment a number of times over the last nine years when the then-new owners took over. The building itself is attractive, while the staff are always friendly, the meals are superb and the prices good. I and several friends who visit their regularly have no hesitation in recommending the Seven Stars -except that it may make... More

Otherwise, the hotel is superb, the owner cum manager and family are kind, attentive and helpful. The restaurant is again of high class with great selection of ale, beers,... More

The accommodation included an evening meal which was world class and the breakfast none too shabby either. Room was quite... More

A friend and I visited the Seven Stars for Sunday lunch and found it a truly enjoyable experience. The service was exceptional with Michael attending to our every request down to the finest detail. The starters were outstanding (mushroom and thyme soup - to die for - and warm black pudding salad) and the traditional Sunday lunch was excellent with... More

A well run and very friendly hotel, rooms clean and well equipped. The breakfast was excellent, I can recommend the salmon and scrambled egg. The hotel is only a few minutes drive from the Science block at Durham University and the colleges off South Road. If you don't want to drive in to the city the park and ride is... More

Whilst getting work done on our house we decided to stay over at a place we regularly enjoy eating. It was exactly as we expected. Traditional, very clean & comfortable. Staff very friendly and food up to its usual great standard.

Starting with the positives:- All of the staff were excellent, friendly, welcoming and helpful. We ate our evening meal in the restaurant where again the... More
