“Perfect stay in beautiful Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We recently stayed at Durham occupying 4 rooms, all were exceptionally clean and beautifully presented. The breakfasts superb, all choices! Martin and Shelley very helpful and welcoming. A lovely house in a prime location in Beer, which is a lovely calm relaxing Devon village.

Perfect! A lovely room, clean and well presented. The location is beautiful, the owners are friendly and helpful. The breakfast was wonderful and they were kind enough to cook mine early as I had to leave. A lovely visit - would definitely go again.

Fantastic stay, Durham house has a great location in Beer. The room was spotless and very well maintained. I was a little worried about the showers from reading other reviews but there was lots of hot water and good pressure. This is obviously a well established and well run B&B with experienced owners. The breakfast was good - can reccomend the French toast. We'll definitely be back!

Relaxed but friendly welcome from the owner of this beautiful B&B. We had a lovely, spotlessly clean room. Durham house is perfectly placed in Beer. Close to the little harbour and near a couple of very good restaurants. A useful guide to all the amenities and to places to visit was left in the room.
Breakfast was delicious, with lots of choice from full english to cinnamon toast with maple syrup.
a very enjoyable stay. Would definately stay there again.

Room Tip: No tip needed. As far as i could work out all the rooms would be of the same high standard

Very friendly and warm welcome. Big, nice and clean room. Delicious breakfast with fresh fruit. What would we need more? Thanks for the comfortable stay at Durham House in the great small village Beer. We will come again!

Apart from the bed being a little too soft for my liking (although Shelly did change our room to a one where the mattress was a bit harder) we had a lovely stay at Durham House. The entire place always smelled so fresh and clean and there was always someone about to help us when we needed it. I understand the point someone made about the carpark but, in all fairness, very few B&Bs on the Jurassic Coast offer *any* parking provision and so a free parking voucher was a nice change; we came and went over 5 days and didn't have a single problem parking. The breakfast was delicious and I suggest the French Toasted Cinnamon Muffins with Fruit and Maple Syrup.... the Vegetarian Full English was also very tasty. The waitresses, again, were very well turned out, friendly and gave a very good service. All in all a great place to spend 5 days in June :)

Oh, and the Minton tiles on the hallway floor were nice to see too!
