Beautiful Guest House near city centre

Lovely old place to stay near the city centre
The Castle View Guest House is a lovely old town house very close to the historic Durham city centre. The house and the rooms have lots of period features and there is also a very pleasant garden. We stayed 2 nights, our room was spacious and comfortably furnished but the only way of cooling the room down (the weather was hot and humid) was to open the window, which meant that it was a bit noisy during the night. Breakfast was good and everyone was friendly and keen to make our stay enjoyable. Being so close to the city centre meant that charges apply for on-street parking nearby, but we were allowed to park our small car right outside which was a definite plus! This was the first time we've visited Durham for the weekend, and the Castle View Guest House was one of the best guest houses we've stayed in. It was quite expensive, but for a high quality weekend stay in a lovely old house so very close to Durham city centre it was worth every penny and we'd do it again.

Very good 8.0
The Castle view is well located and the breakfast was terrific. Location is perfect. The mattress tilted to one side which made sleeping a little difficult. This is a lovely old building and the tilting mattress may have been do to the floor tilting. The bed needed to be propped up on one side. The bathroom and bedroom where spacious.
