A lovely surprise!
Posted Jan 23, 2017
We booked this hotel for an overnight business stay, and after reading the reviewson Trip Advisor, we were dreading our stay. I am pleased to say that we were taken aback when we arrived, as downstairs showed nothing of what we had read! The restaurant has just been renovated which is lovely and inviting, and the manager informed us that the accommodation was next to be spruced up. The rooms were quite dated, but we could see from downstairs the standard at which the rooms would be brought up to, so we would be very happy to visit again and see how lovely the place has turned out to be! It's wonderfully close to Durham city centre and the train station, and it was very easy to get taxis. Food at the hotel was amazing and excellently priced; moreover the staff were all friendly and welcoming and we were well looked after. The only downside I think is that the new place (La Spada) doesn't reflect the old establishment of the Lambton Hounds Inn; I would get rid of the old Trip Advisor as it is probably letting the new place down enormously! Would thoroughly recommend and would happily visit again!
