We stayed two nights in June 2014 in Room 4. A very spacious, comfortable room, very clean and well-appointed. Good breakfast and friendly service. Ideal location within easy walking distance of the city centre.
A little more direction in advance on exactly where the house is located would be helpful for those arriving by car.
Very enjoyable stay and would highly recommend.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 17 century English Heritage Listed Building with origins going back to the 14th century - restored and decorated to the highest standards.6 en-suite rooms - 2 with views of castle and cathedral the others looking over the historic street of Crossgate - one of the medieval routes where the ancient road from England to Scotland forded the River Wear and on which the city was originally founded - this unprepossessing street predates the castle and cathedral.The house is the closest residential property of all to the town centre and is only a few minutes walk from the castle and cathedral , the historic centre , shopping streets and restaurants. This can mean that the street is sometimes lively and noisy at night usually at weekends due to the fact that we are a prestigious university city with many boisterous young people out and about. We do however have double glazing and the highest quality beds to help you have a goodnight sleep before a full English breakfast cooked fresh to order with cereals , juices , and freshly cut fruit salad. ... more less
