“Ideal location to see the sights”
Reviewed August 29, 2012

2 nights at this quaint cottage B&B ably run by Martin offering good food, attention and info to make the stay worthwhile. Bus across the road takes one to Durham town centre and terminus from where one can journey to Newcastle, Sunderland etc should there be the need. We all visit for the cathedral amongst other reasons and we are not disappointed Well done.

We have just reurned from staying at the Moor End for 3 nights
It was very homely, clean, well decorated and the food and welcome was perfect.
The location is excellent being 10 minutes outside Durham centre and the bus service is very frequent
No problem with car parking which is at the rear of the hotel
We would reccommend this hotel to anyone

My friend and I booked in for 3 nights at Moor End B & B. It is situated near to the A1M and we found it very easily using the directions from the site. Our bedroom (No 1) was at the front of the house and was lovely, very clean with nice comfortable beds. It had a nice bathroom with a very large shower. Breakfast was great every taste catered for.You can take a bus into Durham from just over the road. We visited Beamish and Hartlepool and enjoyed both, the weather was kind to us !! My only criticism was there was a plug in air freshner in our room, which I found overpowering , but it was quickly removed when I asked. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Room 1 (twinbeds) overlooked the main road, but we had no trouble with traffic noise. There is a pu...

My daughter and I recently stayed at Moor End, an excellent bed and breakfast, for two nights to attend a Durham University open day. A very comfortable, beautifully decorated and clean place to stay and very close to the City but not inside. An excellent choice!!

Booked for an overnight business trip. I would normally stop in a city centre hotel and not a guest house but Moor End was very impressive nonetheless. Very clean room which was 'homely' without being cluttered and contemporary without being sparse. Plenty of local info, a decent TV and lots of plug points. Free wi-fi with a decent connection was a bonus all too rare in a lot of hotels/guest houses, and there's a Spar shop plus fast food joints just 5 minutes down the road. I didn't have a cooked breakfast but nothing seemed too much trouble for the owner and overall it was a brief but pleasant stay. My only complaint was it's location (an £8-9 taxi fare from Durham) but otherwise well recommended.

We stayed at Moor End house for one night and found it to be very clean and comfortable with nice en suite, we requested useof a hairdryer which we received immediately.The breakfast was lovely and set us up for the day. The down side of our visit was that as train travellers it was situated further from the centre of Durham than we had thought , however our host was helpful in informing us of the bus times and we would certainly recommend the guest house.

My husband, two friends and I have just spent four nights at Moor End House. The guest house was very comfortable and clean and Debbie and Martin are so welcoming and could not do enough for us to ensure our stay was perfect. The breakfasts were excellent, freshly prepared and set us up for the day. We arrived back at the guest house one afternoon and hot scones and jam were delivered to our rooms, it was these extra thoroughful touches which epitimised the high standard of Moor End House.

We would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone visiting the Durham area, we would certainly not stay anywhere else in Durham. There is a bus stop just opposite with a regular bus service into the city centre. Debbie and Martin also recommended some excellent places for an evening meal.

Could not rate our stay high enough, it beats five stars anytime.

Room Tip: We had the room on the second floor which was very spacious and tastefully furnished. The other roo...
