“Birthday gift”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

Birthday treat for my husband. Used the 2 night dbb deal. Excellent value. All meals well presented, freshly cooked. Staff very friendly. Rooms cosy. Nice quiet location, no late night noise.
Highly recommended. Went to Beamish museum and used 25% off voucher from Seven Stars, the ticket purchased is now valid for a year, which is also very good value.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

What a truly lovely place to visit and it was just as expected no 'glass or chrome' to be seen just a traditional welcome to a family run business. The Inn itself is well maintained and done to a high standard, our room was a good size the bed was comfortable and the towels and bedding were brilliant white which l always think is a good indication of the standard.
Our brakfast was well pesented and of a high standard there was adequate choice and plenty of it.
We really enjoyed our stay and the cost was very reasonable even the drinks at the bar.We would recommend this delightful inn.

Very reasonable prices for Durham with excellent food and friendly service. The rooms are not the largest but size is compatible with the nature of the building and they are comfortably fitted. The only obtrusive noise would be the sound of the WC macerator, but I cannot say that we were particularly disturbed by it. We brought a couple of minor things to the owner's attention and these were investigated and suitably dealt with. I have dined here on many occasions in the past and have always found the food to be of a high standard. All in all a very pleasant stay.

We had stayed here before and were on the mailing list so returned for a truly fantastic offer of 2 nights dinner bed and breakfast. The food was delicious from the superb evening meal to the breakfast (cooked by breakfast chef) who produced delicious sloppy scrambled eggs at our request. I like my real ale which is not always available with good food but it certainly was here. The bedroom we had was pretty ordinary and the owner promised to look into the industrial type mattress covers that prevented us sleeping very well. However, the food and friendliness was more than adequate compensation and we'll definitely return.

One of the great things about dining here is the consistant quality of the food.
We are frequent diners at the Seven Stars because the food is always cooked to the highest standard and the menu is always varied. I love fish & desserts and both score top marks! The variety of foods is great and the pricing just hits the wallet nicely. we will definately be back
