My faith in English restaurants is increasing. Excellent food beautifully presented. Stayed one night and the room well equiped. Very good value. We would stay here again.

Room Tip: book sunday lunch in advance

We had a two night stay and were welcomed and quickly shown to our room. It was an airy good sized room with a king size bed and windows on both sides. Separate bathroom with shower and toilet. A heater in the bathroom and in the bedroom. Fan for summer but it was cool when we stayed so that's not a problem. Plenty of fluffy white towels, good toiletries, a comfortable bed an lounge chairs for relaxing.

The TV did not have many channels to choose but this didn't bother us and there is wifi available. There was also a desk, bureau with drawers and separate wardrobe.

We ate in Finbarrs restaurant downstairs adjacent to the lobby. There is an entrance for guests and one for the public from the car park. The standard of service and quality of the food was excellent. Prices were reasonable and they have a specials menu most nights if you dine early. The staff were unobtrusive and helpful. Breakfast is also served in this restaurant and, like the evening meal was of a very high standard. Great value for money overall.

Room Tip: Suggest book the B & B rates from the website.

Stayed one night in Durham to see the cathedral, castle and other touristy things and chose this hotel due to its location being walkable into the town centre and its price. We booked directly (telephone) with the hotel and recieved a deal with breakfast better than any of the websites.
We arrived early (10:30) and as the room was ready were allowed to check in. Check in and other staff were friendly, cheerful and always helpful. We had room 6 which had a dual aspect, good comfortable bed and plenty of space. It was clean, fresh and looked over the rear of the hotel. Double glazing blocked any noise although during our midweek stay the hotel was very quiet. Room had everything required- sitting area ,TV, tea/coffee, iron, hair dryer and well equiped bathroom. If staying in Durham again my wife and i would return as the hotel is well located within woodland about 5 miniutes walk from the town with lots of parking. (Much better located than the budget chains on the edge of the city)
Breakfast was included in our rate which was pretty standard but wholesome and freshly cooked for us. The hotel is currently offering a discount if the bill is settled by cash which made a good deal feel even better.
The restuarant looked fine (we ate out in the evening) although we did use the bar where drinks were not expensive as in many other hotel bars. Again if staying again we would give the resturant a try.
I would like to complement all the hotel staff we encountered who were all so helpful, professional and keen to please. The Kingslodge is not a five star hotel or part of a souless chain but a small 'country type' hotel located in Durham close to the city center. Although I expect not every room was to the standard of number 6 my wife and I could find few areas of fault.

This is a nice, clean, convenient place to stay. It is close to downtown life but away from the bustle for a quiet night. We particularly enjoyed the little nature preserve right behind the parking lot; a lovely place for a walk after dinner.
