Lovely spot and an excellent room. The room was nicely done and the breakfast was one of the best I've had. Kept me going all day. The staff were unobtrusive while still delivering polite and excellent service. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I will definitely be staying here again. I didn't give it a top score because there were... More

This is a lovely Country Style Pub on the outskirts of Durham. The staff are friendly and happy. The food is very good and great value so there is no need to venture out at night. The room we had was extremely clean and had everything in it you need. The only problem was that the TV was set at... More

After a poor first impression due to an awkward satnav, this place was fantastic. Friendly staff, clean room and excellent food. The menu was very reasonable for the quality of service and the breakfast had excellent variety too. Easy access to the city centre with regular bus service. Would defiantly stay again.

Ok the rooms are above a public house - but - close to (couple miles from) Durham; it's quiet - bit of noise from the pub but no road noise and quiet otherwise; freshly cooked good quality English breakfast; clean fresh rooms; friendly staff - and the price means churlish to give anything but 5 stars
