Stayed overnight on Saturday as we had tickets for Kynren. From the first contact made on the phone to the conversation I had with the cleaners as we left, we found all the staff to be very cheerful and friendly. The hotel is clean and well furnished. The breakfast was hot, tasty and served with a smile. What more could... More

Lovely welcome. Very friendly and efficient staff. Quality food. Nice variety of sandwiches, scones so fresh they must have been very newly made and amazing cakes! Endless supply of tea, hot water and milk. This was our second visit. Back again next week. Thank you.

Located in New Coundon just outside Bishop Auckland this is a nice quiet place to stay. We had rooms in the main building and found the staff to be welcoming and very helpful. We were at a family event so did not eat in, and returned late so cannot comment on the food or noise. That said there is also... More

Booked this hotel as was going to the amazing outdoor show Kynren in Bishop Auckland. Good location but make sure you book your taxi in good time. There is however a bus stop just outside. Hotel is very quaint. Rooms were spacious and clean. Very quiet at night, even with windows open. Staff at reception were really friendly and welcoming.... More
