Beyond my expectations

Posted 27-Nov-2014
Pros: The guest house was run by two wonderfully warm people.
Location: The guest house was a few miles out of Durham, but there was a bus into the city and taxi prices were reasonable. For visitors with cars. it is ideal.
The cleanest, neatest accommodation I've ever had the pleasure to experience. A home from home.

Excellent guest house

Posted 22-Sep-2014
Pros: Friendliness, helpfulness, cleanliness
Location: Durham City approx 3 miles away
My daughter & I stayed for one night to visit the University on Open Day. This is a guest house & not a hotel and the facilities/services are in line with this. Checking in after 9pm was not a problem. Maureen kindly arranged a taxi for us from the station & we were greeted with a warm welcome & much appreciated fresh pot of tea. The bedroom and shared bathroom were comfortable & immaculate and English breakfast was served promptly prompt at the time requested. Transport into the City is available on public transport, although we took a taxi for £7.50. Would definitely recommend this guest house & would not hesitate to stay here again.

A lovely B&B

Posted 02-Sep-2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: I guess en suites, but it's a B&B so we knew it would be a shared bathroom - there was no problem with this it was always clean.
Location: A short drive from Durham
A great B&B, a short car drive from Durham. The rooms were great and very well appointed and clean. The breakfast was fab! The couple running it were lovely and very helpful. We couldn't have had a better stay.

Guest room in House

Posted 18-Jul-2014
Pros: they provided lovely dressing gowns to wear to the bathroom, and the wi fi was perfect
Cons: coffee facilities poor no desk to work at no chairs or tv in lounge
Location: You need a car if you are staying here
Travellers need to be aware that this is a house with three bedrooms and one bathroom to share. The hosts are wonderful. The rooms large and absolutely pristine, breakfast was home cooked. Enjoyable but really need to know its like staying with relatives who dont bother you at all. but we adapted and enjoyed our stay

Silent Beauty

Posted 08-Jul-2014
My daughter and I were in Durham attending a university open day. We drove up from London and needed a quite place to stay the night. High View Guest House was perfect. Close, and clean with a lovely breakfast. Our room was beautiful and equipped with every thing one could need. If my daughter ends up going to Durham university I will be staying here often.
