Clean, Comfortable, & Quiet Stay at the Saxon Inn
Lovely little inn on the outskirts of Bishop Auckland. We knew that we were going to be arriving well past their check-in hours so I called ahead to explain (we were coming up on business). The process for getting in was clearly explained. When we arrived, cheerful gentleman (despite the hour) came to greet us, give us our room key and let us in. We stayed in Room 5, which was in great condition and tastefully decorated. The bed was comfortable with crisp linen and there were plush, soft towels in the bathroom. It had a large, waterfall shower which was powerful and had plenty of hot water. There was a tea/coffee tray (along with biscuits) and a kettle as well as a hairdryer in the room. What really impressed us was the work of a local artist on display in our room and throughout the hallways. There was a small plaque near the entrance which gave details of the artist, with her work prominently featured around the property. This gave it a warm, personal touch, as opposed to the endless museum prints that you normally see in properties of this size. Should our travels bring us back in this direction, we would not hesitate to return.
