My wife and I stayed in Nov 2014. Booking and payment via the internet were simple and easy. We got a warm, friendly, welcome from Martin. No lift available but Martin carried our luggage up the stairs. Parking close by, good food at breakfast, and a comfy bed. Excellent value for money. It is an extremely good location for getting...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. The pub next door has now been totally refurbished and the food is excellent. There is also a good choice of draught beers, real ale and continental lagers. What more can you want..

Let's start with the positives. The bed was very comfortable. This b & b is also quite clean, and the owner responds positively to all reasonable requests. The building seems historic or at least quaint. Nonetheless, we didn't have such a happy experience. The b & b is quite a bit further from the center of Durham than we had...

I am sorry that you found Moor End B&B a bit further from the centre of Durham than you had expected but then as you point out, the booking was made by others on your behalf. It is quite clear on the Moor End website and the various online booking sites that we are two miles from the centre of...

Very friendly and helpful host. The twin room was practical and had lovely decor and was clean. All facilities provided. The en suite shower was cold as there was no heating in there and the shower was tepid. But we only stayed one night so not such a huge problem. Comfy beds.

I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry you found the shower tepid, but on checking the shower and adjusting the temperature control knob the water temperature actually varies from scalding to freezing.

Four of us stayed for 2 nights in comfortable rooms and our host Martin was welcoming and very helpful. Bearing in mind other reviews relating to late arrival, we were a bit apprehensive as a car breakdown could have made us miss the booking in window.

Clean, well-appointed rooms and very friendly, helpful proprietors. Martin and his wife went above and beyond, helping with our left luggage and a rental car. There's a good pub next door and it's an easy 10 minute bus ride to the city centre. Excellent breakfast. Can't go wrong here!

The proprietors of this delightful B&B should be proud of what they have achieved in this beautiful little guest house! The rooms are lovely; nicely decorated with some wonderful finishing touches. Breakfast was lovely and the owners very friendly and helpful. On our next trip to Durham I wouldn't even consider looking anywhere else, this is where we will stay.

We stayed 2 nights for a family wedding . We found the B&B to be very nicely decorated and the rooms were spotlessly clean . A very nice hot breakfast every morning with a variety of cereals too. There is off road parking behind the bed and breakfast too . A good base to explore durham .
