Great place but expensive for single occupancy.
Excellent accommodation and very friendly and accommodating staff. Food was very good at reasonable prices. Very expensive re B & B for single occupant is the only downside that will mean that I will have second thoughts about staying there again which is disappointing for me.

Lovely country Inn
My second stay at this lovely country inn. Clean, comfortable room. Excellent Staff. Fantastic bar and restaurant with great choice of food at resonable prices. Friendly locals use this place a lot, which is a good recommendation. Easy bus ride into centre of Durham. Highly recommended.

Charming hotel
Really nice hotel with very friendly staff. Clean, comfortable room. Free street parking and some hotel spaces. Good food at reasonable prices with lots of choice - from bar snacks to fillet steaks. Good selection of real ale. Friendly locals use the bar restaurant. Fresh breakfast was cooked to order. Two miles from Durham centre with frequent bus service or there is a pleasant foot path which takes you directly into centre.

Good food, irritating wi-fi registration
Rooms are above a pub, but not noisy. The Avenue restaurant/pub food served generous portions, a good value. The breakfast here was my husband’s favorite of the two week trip. Wi-fi required registration with The Cloud/Sky Wi-fi which was irritating. I never did get connected with my phone.

Really impressed for the price!
Room was lovely. Breakfast was amazing, the shower was in a little cubicle which seemed to turn the shower into a mini steam room! This also meant the mirror in the bathroom wasn’t steamed up! I would definitely stay here again
