Ive stayed here before always freindly but think the new management need to be bit more friendly and polite to his customers..and explain the rules on no food in the rooms
The B&B has a welcoming atmosphere, and the rooms are spacious and have a modern feel. Freshly prepared breakfast options with excellent bread and other ingredients. The staff was friendly and the location is great. I'll definitely stay here again when I have a next visit to Durham.
Lovely friendly staff, fab rooms and facilities and walking distance to city
Friendly welcome. Breakfast was excellent. Decor in room nice but bedside lamp stands, tops of heavy curtains and windowsills were dusty. Chairs at breakfast had lots of crumbs left on them.
Great location. Walking distance to sights and restaurants. Excellent staff.
