I was looking for a hotel for a romantic night, in the countryside, yet not to far from a city (only 20 mins from Durham). When we arrived, the building looked magnificent and the entrance hall met up to our expectations. There were leather chairs and log fires burning, very romantic and the the staff were as welcoming.
We were upgraded to a honeymoon suite as there was a wedding party on the night of our stay, and there were no premier rooms available. All i can say is "WOW" - this would have cost £300 pnight for a city centre hotel . A four poster bed with huge TV and tea/coffee facilities. There was a door off the room which led into the bathroom (size of a double room) with walk in shower and double jacuzzi (like the ones you see in the Hollywood films).
We decided to make the most of the hotel and ate in the restaurant. Fantastic value (£16.00 for two courses) but the portions were enormous and the staff could not do enough to help. Breakfast was very good but not much choice in terms of veggie meat substitutes. Fruit, salad, beans, mushrooms, eggs , pastries, yoghurts and toast -enough to keep you going until afternoon tea.
The only downside of the stay, was the 10am check out .
All we can say is fantastic value for money, great hotel, friendly staff and an amazing hotel.
