Breakfast is great! The room is nice and cosy. I'm from Japan, and I really love the decor of the guest rooms and breakfast room. They are so British! Also there is a bus stop near the B&B so you can go to Durham city centre and Newcastle easily.

The room was great, spacious, clean and with good facilities. The breakfast was excellent. There is a pub nearby that serves good food and drink and for those who want to venture into Durham, a bus stop across the road will get you there in about ten minutes. Superb value for money too!

A warm welcome from Martin who was friendly, helpful and hospitable throughout our stay. Comfortable room with good beds and large en suite shower. An excellent breakfast with a wide choice. Good location close to the A1 and not far from the centre of Durham where there are plenty of places to eat (especially in Saddler Street).

Lovely B and B, friendly and welcoming. Bed was very comfy and room was nicely decorated. Breakfast was lovely, could help yourself to toast and juices, cereals and hot drinks plenty of choice! Was close to town centre and pub next door was very nice also. Would definitely stay again if I was to stay over in Durham.

A conveniently located and clean B&B. The bed was comfortable, but the ensuite was built into the corner of the bedroom and therefore small and rather cramped.
