Thanks Martin for coming back from Tesco to check us in ! Perfect location for Durham. Nice room and great breakfast. Will stay again and recommend to others. The Pub next door (The Belmont) serves great food and it's £1.50 on the bus into Durham.

Thank you for your kind review. As I only have a small window of opportunity to get my lunch and provisions, you were fortunate to catch me in the queue for the coffee, so I was able to nip back and check you in. Had you phoned 10 mins later who knows!!!! Never come between a man and his food.... More

This an excellently run and well appointed B&B. We had a lovely stay in spotlessly clean surroundings, great breakfasts and friendly and efficient service. The owner Martin is very helpful and gave us advice on local attractions and even discount cards. Will go back.

I stayed with my son whilst visiting Durham University and it was well situated, just 10 mins from the centre. The house was warm, the owner helpful and friendly, rooms were clean, well decorated and the food good. A very good, straightforward b@b that offers a good base for a short stay. Well use again if my son goes to... More

Excellent B&B. Just back from few days in Durham stayed at the Moor End House. Great location far enough outside to be away from city centre near enough for short bus ride in, great transport links nearby. Room clean and well presented. Breakfast wonderful, large choice and full breakfast a treat. Martin very helpful and a great asset to Durham.... More

Lovely B and B, warm welcome from Martin on arrival and charming room, full of character on the top floor. Comfortable and very clean, my only criticism would be the early breakfasts! The latest we could book was 845, which is much too early in my opinion when you are on holiday!
