“Beautiful Place”
Reviewed 26 March 2015 for a stay in November 2014
1
person found this review helpful

I can't get this place out of my head. My wife and I spent a week here in November 2014. The modern-day fixings of this apartment are second to none. The hosts have thought of everything and their welcome is warm and efficient.

Nowhere I've stayed has more charm. I was transported back in time, many centuries, imagining myself living on the banks of the River Wear and trekking up the hill to the Cathedral for philosophical discussions with the Venerable Bede.

Durham is compact and walkable. Students are everywhere, giving a young feel to an old town. If I were British, I think I'd retire there. Living in this flat on the Wear has given me a lasting taste of eternity.

“Our recent stay.”
Reviewed 16 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

It was our first stay in Durham and we where given a very warm welcome. All the little extras added to us feeling at home from the word go. The apartment was well situated and had good secure packing. We enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

“Absolutley Fantastic”
Reviewed 18 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We booked this beautiful apartment for the weekend and we loved it!! It was so clean and had everything we needed and more. The only thing is we would have likes a chain on the door as our toddler kept trying to escape, other than that it was perfect. We will definately be returning, thank you Wendy.

Thank you ever so much for such positive feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again. The building is secured by an external door which is why we do not have a security chain fitted, however we appreciate your necessity for extra child friendly safety devices.

Many thanks

“We will definitely return to this lovely apartment,”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Our daughter is at the University so we have stayed previously in hotels in the area. We just wanted a bit of normality for our stay instead of a hotel experience. Staying in this apartment you can eat in if you wish, get a drink from the fridge, just relax altogether, instead of sitting in a foyer or on a bed at a hotel, ordering room service. it has a lovely sitting room with a view, and it just feels a bit more "normal".
We arrived and were greeted by Wendy and Chris who are friendly and made us feel very welcome. As soon as we arrived I thought what a great place this is for parents like us who cannot make the trip to Durham there and back in a day. The only problem is I don't want this apartment to become too popular, as I want it for myself as we will definitely return! The apartment is spotless, the towels are fluffy, the bedrooms are inviting and comfortable, fitted with quality bedding and there are robes if you wish to use. I really cannot fault it.....even the shower is powerful! The decor is modern and tasteful and went beyond my expectations from the photographs I saw when booking. There is parking in an underground car park which is accessed via a lift from within the block which is nice as parking can be difficult in Durham, so you can just forget about the car. The apartment is in a tranquil setting over looking the river with runners and rowers going by, yet step outside and go around the corner and you are in the town. This place is a credit to Chris and Wendy.

This was a great place to stay in Durham. The apartment is beautifully appointed and the outside decking overlooking the river a real bonus. The location is very convenient. Definitely recommended !
