Only booked for one night (a Saturday) as was in the area for a wedding. We were a bit worried on first appearance as it does look to be run down somewhat. Worry not as the material state of the building is sound and the hotel is spotlessly clean throughout. The room had plenty of space although I found the... More

Oh dear we thought on arrival-thinking we had made a terrible mistake as the view of the hotel from the back did not suggest quality. However our stay was memorable. Our room was spacious, clean and well equipped. A most comfortable bed. What made our visit was the friendliness of the family running the establishment ( just recently taken over... More

I recently visited with my father, as I needed to visit Durham University. As soon as I went in the atmosphere was immediately friendly. The room was spotless, and management were delightful. It was really nice to hear such heavy northern accents, which for me really added to the experience. The following morning there was a wide variety of breakfast... More

Very friendly and helpful staff - all requests were genuinely "not a problem". Bedroom and en-suite were compact, but clean and comfortable. The dining room was lacking in ambience, but the meals were good and very generous helpings.

I booked the punch bowl last minute as I was working in the area. The staff were warm and accommodating on my arrival. My room was nicely decorated and very clean with a good supply for tea and coffee making facilities. The room was ensuite and perfect for my requirements. The bar was slightly noisy until about midnight but this... More

We were very disappointed with our stay at the Punch Bowl. Our room was advertised as en suite and although there was a shower and a very small basin we had to share a toilet with other rooms. I had phoned to check that we would be able to get an evening meal and had been assured that we would... More
