Bags were begrudgingly carried to our second floor room by our non-welcoming host. Breakfast lady compensated by kindly offering to bring them down and store them.

Lovely spot in a beautiful town.
Quiet cheerful room with a comfy armchair and a view of the sky. This was a very welcome respite in a busy journey. It’s a bit difficult to find though as it is above the main level of the street and numbered differently. I had a time finding it. The secret is that it is right next to St Margaret’s church and very convenient to the old city, just out of the traffic. When you see St Margaret’s, climb the stairs.

A night at Castle View
The room was lovely. Our hosts were very friendly and the breakfast was superb. There were a couple of details in the room that were overlooked when it was cleaned, but overall we loved it. The hotel was close to the castle and the cathedral in a beautiful part of the city.

Lovely old place to stay near the city centre
The Castle View Guest House is a lovely old town house very close to the historic Durham city centre. The house and the rooms have lots of period features and there is also a very pleasant garden. We stayed 2 nights, our room was spacious and comfortably furnished but the only way of cooling the room down (the weather was hot and humid) was to open the window, which meant that it was a bit noisy during the night. Breakfast was good and everyone was friendly and keen to make our stay enjoyable. Being so close to the city centre meant that charges apply for on-street parking nearby, but we were allowed to park our small car right outside which was a definite plus! This was the first time we've visited Durham for the weekend, and the Castle View Guest House was one of the best guest houses we've stayed in. It was quite expensive, but for a high quality weekend stay in a lovely old house so very close to Durham city centre it was worth every penny and we'd do it again.
