“Absolutely superb”
Reviewed May 28, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This accommodation really is as good as it gets. Brilliant location, with a 5 minute walk into the centre of Durham and gorgeous views from the apartment over the river and towards the Elvet bridge. The apartment itself is beautifully furnished, decorated and equipped and spotlessly clear throughout. Secure parking a real bonus and brilliant service from the owners as well. I couldn't recommend this property more highly.

“perfect place to stay”
Reviewed January 28, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We would highly recommend a stay in this apartment, it is really well placed and a pleasure to stay in.
Everything you need is provided and is pleasingly set out, tastefully furnished and well thought out.
The owners Chris and Wendy are really nice people and helpful, the views from the veranda are quite something plus you are only 2 or 3 minutes walk from the lovely city of Durham.
Thank you for a wonderful visit, we will definitely visit again.

“WOW!”
Reviewed November 22, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This place is truly exceptional. From the moment we were met as we arrived to the final leaving this place is perfect.
Welcome - Nothing was too much trouble and the welcome pack was lovely!
Location - v quiet but very close to the centre of the city. There is numerous bars and very good restaurants very close
Rooms - Spotless, and very well equipped with lots of nice touches such as coffee machine and v. nice toiletries left in bathrooms. The pictures do not do the property justice

Durham itself is a lively town due to the university, but is well worth a visit due to the historical significance of the cathedral and castle

I would be very happy to recommend this place to anyone!!

“Fabulous five star accommodation in perfect location”
Reviewed November 3, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We were looking for some no-hassle down time and a base from which to have a leisurely explore of Durham, a row down the river and a place to sit and chat. Chris and Wendy's apartment was spot on. A great riverside location, all the mod-cons - and most importantly, a short walk from the many eateries and coffee shops of Durham centre.
Super comfy beds and an unexpected welcome basket of treats. The kitchen seemed well equipped - but the truth is we only used the toaster and kettle - we let the local chefs pamper us for the week. Definitely give Lebaneat, Tangos and Tealicious some of your custom if you stay here.

“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.
