We booked into the Brasserie for lunch for my parents 61st Wedding Anniversary celebration. We were able to get the car near to the entrance door of the restaurant to drop off my elderly parents and then park the car nearby. The food and service by the attentive staff was excellent, in a pretty air conditioned room. We had great... More

Booking process chaotic, spoke to almost all the reception staff because they managed to loose our booking not once but twice (something about computer ) very pleasant and they did apologise for their mistakes. First impressions good, it is a lovely setting in the deer park with small lake and the Main... More

Super staff, characterful hotel,relaxing stay. Hotel grounds provide something a little different, not often you can walk amongst deer after breakfast! Convenient location for visiting Durham and also the fabulous Kyren open air show.

Joint baptism with my best friend who had their daughter baptised too at the church next door. The hotel catered for 90 and it was fantastic. We chose the Sunday lunch option but we're only expecting standard chicken etc and a poor vegetarian option. In fact, all guests could choose what they wanted from a full menu- sea bass, pasta,...

Overall very good. Only niggle was the free wifi - virtually no reception in my room (my colleague was OK) and no reception in the breakfast room (I didn't check the dining area). Other than that the hotel is very pleasant and a good stay.
