Staff were unfriendly and rude. We didn't had any knifes or forks. After we asked to get them there were just dumped in the...

Wow! What a find!! We have been travelling to County Durham to visit my husbands family for years and usually stay in Durham. This place was recommended by a family member and we weren't disappointed. A warm welcome, clean sheets, a lovely cosy room and a hearty breakfast! We shall certainly be returning.

Everything you could need is offered with shower gel and shampoo in the shower hairdryer, iron, kettle, tv etc! The breakfast is wonderful!

We visited the Kings Head last night as we have done on many occasions and it was to the usual very high standard. We all chose different starters and main courses and they were all equally good, extremely well presented and really tasty. There is also a very good value offer for a 3 course meal... only not sure who...

Stayed at this hotel 14th to 16 th October. When we arrived at about 21-00 hours the hotel was in full swing with an Elvis tribute and to be honest all the bars were full. We were greeted by a really cheerful friendly gentleman who signed us in. There are about 6 rooms which are all spotlessly clean and have...
