“Just so lovely”

Tastefully decorated, well equipped, spacious and clean, this place is just in the heart of the city. Everything is just a short walking distance from the apartment. The cart park is good as well, with enough space to manoeuvre.
The jacuzzi was a great hit with our 11-year old, who did not want to get out of it, and m y friend and I equally enjoyed it.
The owner left a generous supply of food for breakfast, and there were even fresh flowers in the sitting room which was a nice touch.
The only slight drawback was the traffic noise at night. However, one I shut the window, it was fine, and the air was still fresh and cool.

Liked best: The decor, space, location, attitude of the owner (we were in a traffic jam, and he had to wait a long time, but greeted us warmly all the same).
Liked least: Traffic noise at night

“Central apartment - comfy and convenient”

Stayed in this apartment for one night. Very warm welcome and intro to the facilities. Well equipped and even provided some bits for breakfast and a bottle of wine! Very convenient location - we strolled into the centre for some food. Even has a dedicated parking space. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property. Many thanks!

“Better than a hotel!”

We had a lovely time in Durham, all enhanced by this great apartment. The living area was spacious and well equipped. The bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of storage space, and great to have 2 loos! We had our 8yr old and our 8mth old baby with us. Luckily the baby has not learnt to crawl yet - I would not recommend the space for a baby/toddler/young child who is mobile as there are lots and lots of lovely decorative items around the place.
It was very warm while we were there (unusually lucky for Durham!) and we were grateful the owners had provided a fan as the flat did hold the heat. Being so close to the city centre was great, but it was very noisy late nights/ early mornings with the windows wide open. This was no different to last year when we stayed in the Royal county hotel almost opposite, and we paid more for the hotel and had to share our room with the children!
The owners were particularly generous leaving breakfast, and loads of little essentials like toilet roll, dishwasher tablets and shower gel. It was also great to have secure parking in central Durham, with a lift to access the apartment.
We will be back again, but probably not for a few years as the baby has to get passed the 'breakable' stage!

This was a perfect location and the facilities were excellent with a very short walk to shops/restaurants & bars. Would definitely stay here again! My friends and I all loved the apartment, if felt very homely too :)... huge recommendation from myself. Ray also supplied croissants for breakfast which was a very kind gesture.

“perfect location”
Reviewed 31 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Stayed here with friends for one night on a weekend. We were meeting more friends in the centre of Durham during the day so this 1 or 2 minute walk to where we were meeting them (right in the middle of Durham shops/ restaurants) was perfect! Apartment was lovely, in fact we wish we has more time during the day to chill in the apartment. Lovely decoration and everything there that is needed, also the bath is also a must. Parking very secure, the lift can only take 2 people in at a time which was a little annoying but didn't cause any inconvenience.
