Exceptional 10.0
Ideal for City Break
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and found the location ideal for enjoying Durham on foot. We were in the Biijoux Loft room and obviously realised it would be at the top of the house. Being active and fit three flights of stairs were not a problem but I don't think there is any mention on your site of which floor other rooms are on and the fact that there is no lift. Local people spoke well of the restaurant and seeing that breakfast was £15 when charged separately we thought it would be exceptional. It was pleasant but could have been more carefully prepared.
