I stayed here again whilst visiting friends in Durham. The hotel has been refurbished since I last visited and I must say the room I stayed in was excellent, a good size, beautifully decorated and very clean. I find having tea and coffee facilities very handy too. The breakfast is excellent and all the staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help ! The location is also perfect, it is very central so you can walk to all the attractions, castle and cathedral etc and is a 5 minute walk from the train station, very handy ! I will definitely be returning whenever I am next in Durham.
Many thanks for an excellent stay !
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 17 century English Heritage Listed Building with origins going back to the 14th century - restored and decorated to the highest standards.6 en-suite rooms - 2 with views of castle and cathedral the others looking over the historic street of Crossgate - one of the medieval routes where the ancient road from England to Scotland forded the River Wear and on which the city was originally founded - this unprepossessing street predates the castle and cathedral.The house is the closest residential property of all to the town centre and is only a few minutes walk from the castle and cathedral , the historic centre , shopping streets and restaurants. This can mean that the street is sometimes lively and noisy at night usually at weekends due to the fact that we are a prestigious university city with many boisterous young people out and about. We do however have double glazing and the highest quality beds to help you have a goodnight sleep before a full English breakfast cooked fresh to order with cereals , juices , and freshly cut fruit salad. ... more less
