“Comfortable & convenient”
Reviewed 30 January 2011 for a stay in October 2010

Moonlight Apartment is in a modern development close to the centre of Durham, within easy walking distance of the historic sights, riverside, shops, pubs and restaurants - very convenient! There is allocated, secure parking for one car in an underground carpark but, be warned, the parking spaces here are very tight and constricted.
The apartment owner provides a breakfast pack and bottle of wine on arrival - most welcome and very civilised.
The apartment is comfortable and attractively, though a little over-furnished considering the rooms are relatively small, and well enough equipped with appliances etc. (apart from lacking a cafetiere). However, shelf space for toiletries etc. in the bathrooms was severely limited and the bath in the main bathroom was very slow draining (a little maintenance required?).
Durham is a university city and this apartment is close to some university facilities and student hang-outs so late-night noise might disturb some visitors. Nevertheless we enjoyed our week's break here very much.

Thanks for the encouraging review of Moonlight Apartment - and for letting us know what's gone missing! On my way out to purchase a new cafetiere, and some drain cleaner...

“Awesome”
Reviewed 30 January 2011 for a stay in January 2011

Had an amazing time staying at the moonlight apartment. The apartment was beautifully decorated and very well equipped. It's location was perfect, right beside the cathedral and town. Couldn't think of any complaints even if I'd tried. I'd recommend staying here to anyone thinking of visiting Durham - Steve and Nic, Jan 2011

“Relaxing city break with excellent facilities”
Reviewed 29 January 2011 for a stay in November 2010

Really enjoyed our stay in Durham. The apartment is in an excellent location to see the city with space for a car if you want to get out and enjoy the countryside. The apartment is brilliantly equipped to an excellent standard with everything you need. Helpful local information is provided (we recommend the walks around the city) and there is a friendly welcome with goodies in the fridge!

“Absolutely wonderful - highly recommended”
Reviewed 28 January 2011 for a stay in July 2010

We rented both apartments and found them to be kitted out to an excellent standard, and were delighted especially by the high quantity and quality of the extras provided (wine, milk, bread, butter, plentiful toiletries and fully-stocked kitchen cupboards!). I've stayed in many other apartments but none have come close to these ones.

“Stayed Twice in once in each apartment both superb”
Reviewed 28 January 2011 for a stay in May 2010

Stayed in the Moonlight apartment first around March 10 with friends, loved it so much that went back to show my mum and grandfather the sights of Durham in May 10 at the Oasis apartment.

First apartment in blew myself and friends away. It was comfortable yet stylish and had a architect made feel to it. The little touches such as the automatic blinds in the master bedroom and separate living area on second floor made it original but homely. The location is in the centre of 'Old Durham', short walk to the cathedral and near to the Marriott hotel.

Second apartment was also comfortable and stylish. I liked that there were two bathrooms within this property which drew my mum to this one. The kitchen in both apartments was well equipped. The second apartment is further back in the block than the first so is a bit quieter but also a bit darker as a result. This is not a negative concern just a passing comment. The layout with a large double and good sized single was perfect for three people and the living space could easily fit 6 people comfortably.

Ray (the owner) is an excellent host. He is friendly and approachable and leaves plenty of information for you should you not know Durham. He also lets you use the free safe underground parking for your stay which is a bonus in Durham. Couldn't speak more highly of the accommodation and would defiantly be visiting again soon and I have recommended to several people. Thanks Ray.

We ate one evening in the Cellar Door, its on the road leading up the the cathedral hidden away down some dark stairs. You can eat out on the park terrace overlooking the river and bridge views which was lovely. The Court Inn which is off the main road away from the centre is good for a cheap hearty pub lunch with tons of food in a friendly atmosphere.
