“Perfect, Perfect, Perfect!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I recently stayed at Durham Riverside Apartment 2 for a week with my daughter whilst visiting relatives in the North East. I was a little apprehensive because when I booked it, there weren't any photos available but going on the photos and reviews for the original Durham Riverside Apartment I figured it must be the same quality. And I was not disappointed!! The apartment is beautiful, very tastefully furnished and perfectly clean - the kind of clean which makes you feel very comfortable to stay there. Then there's the location - right on the River Wear with rowers passing all day - and if you sit with the french doors open in the lounge you can hear them being shouted instructions from their trainer on the other side of the river. Very nice! Come out of the apartment, turn left and you're onto Elvet Bridge where the bars, cafés and shops start - again perfect! And finally, there's the owner Chris. He was very friendly, gave us advice on where to eat and we had every faith that whatever we asked him, he would have tried his best to help us. We loved our week at the apartment and will definitely be staying there again when we visit Durham (if it's not booked out that is, as I have a feeling it's going to be hard to reserve this one once the word gets out!!). Thanks Chris
