A great stay!
We really enjoyed out stay at Farnley Tower Guesthouse. Check in was really quick, welcoming, and friendly. The receptionist offered to book us a taxi for our evening plans and when none were available at the time we needed, she gave us really detailed directions for the 10 minute walk with some great tips for local bars to visit. The food and drink offers at the onsite restaurant were great but our plans meant we weren't able to try it out but will definitely return for any future stays in Durham and give it a go. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and being able to book a timeslot was really helpful. Service was quick and organised. Thank you for such a great stay.

Wonderful hotel with excellent food!
Lovely hotel, would happily stay again when visiting Durham. Family room was spacious and clean with a spacious bathroom. The breakfast was wonderful, with hot and cold options. Everyone went the extra mile to make sure you had everything you could possibly want. The Indian restaurant connected to hotel was perfect for dinner, and after a long day driving was exactly what we needed. Very tasty!

The Guesthouse is only 2 streets away from the house my son is renting for Uni. I only stayed overnight but the staff were pleasant and the breakfast was nice with plenty of choice. I was on the top floor with my own separate bathroom just across the corridor but i would book en-suite if i came again. The room temp fluctuated between hot and cold and i would consider the energy bill would be quite expensive? I never got to try the in house Indian restraunt but the menu looked very nice.
