Nice room and great breakfast.

Great place but expensive for single occupancy.
Excellent accommodation and very friendly and accommodating staff. Food was very good at reasonable prices. Very expensive re B & B for single occupant is the only downside that will mean that I will have second thoughts about staying there again which is disappointing for me.

Lovely country Inn
My second stay at this lovely country inn. Clean, comfortable room. Excellent Staff. Fantastic bar and restaurant with great choice of food at resonable prices. Friendly locals use this place a lot, which is a good recommendation. Easy bus ride into centre of Durham. Highly recommended.

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.
