“An Ideal Oasis in Durham”
Reviewed September 5, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We loved our apartment. It was comfortable and spacious and equipped for every need, from kitchen to living room to bathrooms and bedrooms to wifi. We were welcomed personally and felt absolutely at home. The apartments are very conveniently situated for the University, the Cathedral and for shopping. Marvellous! We would not stay anywhere else in Durham now.

“lovely short stay aoartment in centre of Durham”
Reviewed May 26, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

A 2 bedroom apartment with a well equipped kitchen and a spa bath with a mind of it's own. Most short stay accomodation provides the basics: bed, seats, table, but this apartment goes a lot further with comfortable and luxury furnishings. Might be a bit cluttered and eclectic for some peoples' taste ( art deco/art nouveau combined with South East Asia) but I liked it. A very convenient location within easy walking distance of the centre of Durham and the Castle and Cathedral. Can be difficult to find at first and no easy parking when you arrive by car, until you get the keys and can access the locked garage.

“Superb Apartment - great alternative to a hotel”

Private apartment, right in the center of Durham. Extremely private, quaint, stylish - an all-round winner. If you fancy somethin a little less private and more homely than a hotel room, this is for you.

“Very comfortable apartment in a great location”
Reviewed May 16, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Our experience with Moonlight Apartment was positive from the initial inquiry to closing the door when we reluctantly left. The apartment was beautifully appointed, quiet (we were there over the Easter Holiday break) and in a excellent location - a 3 minute walk to the centre of lovely Durham, with all it's interesting streets, ally ways, shops, cafes etc.The undercover parking was a bonus too.

Ray Broadbridge, owner, was a pleasure to do business with - helpful, easy going and thoughtful - the bottle of red wine and breakfast goodies (not eaten at the same time!) was a nice touch. He was very accomodating with our 7pm arrival, meeting us at the apartment and giving us a good 'tour' of the apartment and instructions on how things worked. Thank you Ray!

If we get up to Durham again, we'll definitely stay at Moonlight again.

“Comfortable & convenient”
Reviewed January 30, 2011 for a stay in October 2010

Moonlight Apartment is in a modern development close to the centre of Durham, within easy walking distance of the historic sights, riverside, shops, pubs and restaurants - very convenient! There is allocated, secure parking for one car in an underground carpark but, be warned, the parking spaces here are very tight and constricted.
The apartment owner provides a breakfast pack and bottle of wine on arrival - most welcome and very civilised.
The apartment is comfortable and attractively, though a little over-furnished considering the rooms are relatively small, and well enough equipped with appliances etc. (apart from lacking a cafetiere). However, shelf space for toiletries etc. in the bathrooms was severely limited and the bath in the main bathroom was very slow draining (a little maintenance required?).
Durham is a university city and this apartment is close to some university facilities and student hang-outs so late-night noise might disturb some visitors. Nevertheless we enjoyed our week's break here very much.

Thanks for the encouraging review of Moonlight Apartment - and for letting us know what's gone missing! On my way out to purchase a new cafetiere, and some drain cleaner...

“Awesome”
Reviewed January 29, 2011 for a stay in January 2011

Had an amazing time staying at the moonlight apartment. The apartment was beautifully decorated and very well equipped. It's location was perfect, right beside the cathedral and town. Couldn't think of any complaints even if I'd tried. I'd recommend staying here to anyone thinking of visiting Durham - Steve and Nic, Jan 2011

“Relaxing city break with excellent facilities”
Reviewed January 28, 2011 for a stay in November 2010

Really enjoyed our stay in Durham. The apartment is in an excellent location to see the city with space for a car if you want to get out and enjoy the countryside. The apartment is brilliantly equipped to an excellent standard with everything you need. Helpful local information is provided (we recommend the walks around the city) and there is a friendly welcome with goodies in the fridge!
