Very good 8.0
Charming hotel
Really nice hotel with very friendly staff. Clean, comfortable room. Free street parking and some hotel spaces. Good food at reasonable prices with lots of choice - from bar snacks to fillet steaks. Good selection of real ale. Friendly locals use the bar restaurant. Fresh breakfast was cooked to order. Two miles from Durham centre with frequent bus service or there is a pleasant foot path which takes you directly into centre.

Really impressed for the price!
Room was lovely. Breakfast was amazing, the shower was in a little cubicle which seemed to turn the shower into a mini steam room! This also meant the mirror in the bathroom wasn’t steamed up! I would definitely stay here again

First class all round - would recommend.
Top class throughout, Excellent spacious and well equipped room. Local pub with plenty atmosphere. Excellent choice of food at reasonable cost. Parking a bit limited, but overall well above standard at this cost level.

An ideal base for visiting Durham. Quiet, clean accommodation of a high standard. Both breakfast and evening meals were very good and the real ale was in good condition. Staff were pleasant and efficient so all in all a real gem!
