I stayed three nights in Castleview and was pleased with nearly every thing.
it is a beautiful georgian building (historicaly listed) but well up to date and nicely decorated.
Breakfasts were top class and freshly cooked to order by Joan and Margaret and there was allways freshly cut fruits and yoghurts cereals and proper orange juice all of which you can help yourself to as much as you want.
parking was not a problem as they give you a daily pass.
My only grump would be I suppose was that breakfast starts at 7-30am which tended to give me a bit of a rush on the mornings.however this was a small price to pay for staying in an outstanding central location.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 17 century English Heritage Listed Building- restored and decorated to the highest standards. en-suite rooms - with views of castle and cathedral the others looking over the historic street of Crossgate - one of the medieval routes where the ancient road from England to Scotland forded the River Wear and on which the city was originally founded. The house is the closest residential property of all to the town centre and is only a few minutes walk from the castle and cathedral , the historic centre , shopping streets and restaurants. This can mean that the street is sometimes lively and noisy at night usually at weekends due to the fact that we are a prestigious university city with many boisterous young people out and about. We do however have double glazing and the highest quality beds to help you have a goodnight sleep before a full English breakfast cooked fresh to order with cereals , juices , and freshly cut fruit salad. ... more less
