Best in Durham area
Posted Aug 6, 2015 on Hotels
We stayed for 1 night while visiting our son in Durham to help him move .
Having stayed in and around Durham previously and never returned to the same hotel as they had all been poor , this is a hidden gem . Mr & Mrs Richardson our hosts were charming and attention to detail puts most hotels to shame .
For example on learning at breakfast that my wife has to have a lactose free diet they produced a jug of lactose free milk .That is a first.
Our room was comfortable and had everything you could need and the best hotel shower I can remember .There are stunning views over the surrounding countryside from most windows . It is only 15 minutes from the centre of Durham .We certainly hope to return and for more than 1 night .
Don't be put off by this being a B&B , It may only have 3 letting rooms but it is excellent .
