Ironically I'm writing this sat by a pool and have a decent view of the Burj Al Arab. A shining example of a seven star establishment, unlike the Sevens Stars in Shincliffe which is sadly at the other end of the spectrum. What could the Seven Stars learn from the Burj Al Arab? If you are going to impose a... More

On arrival we found out a number of 'House Rules' which did not create a very warm welcome. The en suite was extremely small and difficult to move around it without bumping into something. It also needed work doing-shower head blocked, shower screen broken etc. The mattress was very uncomfortable, every spring could be felt and there was a big... More

I've been here a couple of times recently and both times I've been blown away by the excellent customer service - the waiter was helpful, polite and seemed to genuinely care that we had a good experience. The food was also excellent.

We had pre-paid dinner for the 2 nights that we stayed and received a three-course meal (roast on the Sunday) that we found too much. Breakfast was great also. The room was smaller than others that we had had (after all it was built in 1724), but it was clean and comfortable. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The dining... More

Apart from serving us some excellent lunchtime food, the folks were friendly as they come, and helped us out with some great directions towards Hadrians wall, the scenic way. My burger with blue cheese was the best I'd had in ages. Definitely come here again.

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

I stayed for three nights. The serviceman quickly fixed the TV that was not switching on at first. Towels not changed on the second day. The above are the only complaints. 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 Hotel is a car drive out of Durham but you can park there and take the local bus from right outside the door back into town which eliminates looking for a car park which is quite horrendous for parking. 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
