    Very clean and comfortable. Not amazing surroundings but good location and well sized nicely decorated rooms. Excellent shower. Good English breakfast though continental disappointing

  • 2.0.Poor

    Disgusted!

    Ended up not staying, i was disgusted and angry with the lack of cleanliness in the rooms, i complained about the first room because there were cobwebs on the ceilings and on the ceiling lights and dust on the headboard of the bed, i was then shown another room, it was the same, i was shown five rooms in total, none of them were cleaned properly, two of the rooms had four poster beds, which were think with dust, its not aceptable at any time to be given a half cleaned room, more so with the Covid situation, so myself and my daughter took the decision not to stay.

    Great hotel for social distancing

    Stayed under social distance rules which were followed by staff and guests. Great hotel under present climate as rooms open up to an outside courtyard. Bathroom could do with a little update, but was ok. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

    Honest Lawyer

    Clean and tidy hotel, staff were very friendly. A bit out on a limb with no other places to eat or drink nearby (Durham 45 mins walk, taxi £9.00 each way). Drink prices in the hotel were very expensive.

    Ripped off on breakfast

    Charging an extra circa £50 for a croissant is an absolute joke...
