A very late booking when I realised I couldn’t finish the work I was doing in the area. £60 for B&B. Fantastic room, clearly recently renovated and a great evening meal in the bar area. All the food was made to order. Will definitely return if I’m working in the area again. A gem.

Stayed one night, good bar with beer garden, friendly attentive staff, enjoyed dinner, black pudding starter, lamb shank and the scampi with real chips all very good and breakfast also very good and freshly cooked. Double room was fine comfy bed but walls could do with a paint otherwise would have rated property higher

It is quite a long way out of Bishop Auckland but easy to find by car, has a bus stop outside with frequent service and can be walked in half an hour by the more energetic. The rooms are set around a courtyard area, away from the rather busy road, so it is not too noisy. Inside they are spacious, with older furniture, large wall TV (that works), kettle and cheerfully decorated. Mine had pictures of poppies. The bathroom has a shower but it is one of the type that is inside the bath and the controls are a bit low. Care needs to be taken, especially for older guests. A quick and welcoming check-in, efficient check out and a good cooked breakfast. Good place if you are touring around the area

We had a short 2 night stay with our two golden retrievers. We were made most welcome by every member off staff and the owner. The dogs (who, in reality, were the 'main attraction') were allowed to join us in the bar area when we had our meals, two breakfasts and one evening meal. The food was wonderful, the room was fine and spacious. The whole 2 day experience was most enjoyable, our sincere thanks to all at the Park Head Hotel

Thanks so much for taking the time to review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and your dogs enjoyed it too they were absolutely gorgeous and so well behaved even when they were getting their feet hosed after their walk. We look forward to seeing you next time you are in the area. Many thanks 😊
