“Could not ask for better”
Reviewed August 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We were attending a wedding reception in Durham Castle with my daughter and her partner and this apartment could not have been better placed - just a short walk up the cobbled streets. Nor could you really beat it for the warmth of reception, the standard of the rooms, the thoughtful groceries left for us and the view of the river. Even the weather was exceptionally kind to us.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 22, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This flat is absolutely fantastic -- the location right down the on the river is beautiful, the furnishings and Chris and Wendy were extremely friendly helpful. At one point they even sent someone over on short notice on a Saturday to help when I was locked out of the flat. Overall a lovely property.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We booked this apartment as an alternative to hotel rooms for a family of 5 attending a wedding at durham castle. The apartment was lovely. 5 stars all the way. We were met as promised and car was parked in secure parking followed by a quick tour of the apartment. The apartment had every luxury we could wish for lovely molten brown toiletries, fluffy towels, complimentary hamper of goodies and milk tea and coffee all waiting. Excellent after a long journey. This was a great hotel alternative for us and I don't hesitate to recommend.

“Superior in every respect.”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Every thing about this accommodation was perfect - the location, the fit-out, the linen, the beds (so very very comfortable). The entire property was immaculate and the sound proofing between apartments was faultless (we didn't hear another soul). Everything that we needed was supplied - and more (we were not expecting the fantastic welcome hamper). The owners met us on arrival and showed us around, and then checked in with us at the end of our stay. They were so focused on ensuring that our stay exceeded our expectations - which it did. My favourite aspect was the deck over the river where we could sit at the end of a busy day, sip our wine (from the welcome hamper) and watch the rowers. Thank you so much Chris and Wendy!

“Wonderful location, fabulous apartment”
Reviewed July 17, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Great riverside location, with balcony, and allocated parking space. Absolute peace and quiet, but just 1 minute from the city centre. The spacious apartment is very well-decorated and equipped, and the Welcome Pack from the owners was a real bonus.

“great accomadation and location”
Reviewed November 16, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We highly recommend this apartment for a pleasant Durham visit, great location (a few minutes walk to historic area) very comfortable, luxurious flat right on river and friendly hosts, we were collected from train station, there was a few goodies provided for us and were taken back to train station on departure (we have been trying to find time to visit Durham for many years) and feel very lucky to have stayed here, it helped make a visit to this beautiful city complete.

“Superb accommodation.”
Reviewed November 9, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We stayed in flat 3, which is on the ground floor with balcony access. Access to the apartment is via a lift from the basement parking below, or from the street at ground floor level; both very easy. The secure parking is an absolute boon. We were warmly welcomed and settled.
The apartment is beautifully appointed with everything you could need for a comfortable and relaxing stay in the city centre; completely faultless. We enjoyed lovely, peaceful views of the river and the city centre is a two minute walk away. We had a wonderful few days in Durham and would definitely stay here again. Thank you for a memorable visit.
