Best B & B place we have ever stayed

Posted 25-Oct-2016
Location: Quiet neighbourhood. An excellent place to stay while visiting Durham. The University and Durham City Centre are just about 10 minutes by car.
My wife and I spent one night at High View Guest House on 19 Oct after sending our daughter to Durham University. We drove the whole morning from Southampton and were quite exhausted when we reached Durham in late afternoon. We were glad to find warm welcome and hospitality at High View Guest House. The place is well maintained, clean and modern. Everything looks new, although we were told the place has been a B & B for three years. Our Room No. 1 has a panorama view of Durham outskirts. My wife and I each enjoyed a hot bath. We asked for advice where to have dinner. The host told us about a decent restaurant near the railroad bridge. But we couldn't find it. We settled for fish and chips at The Cod Gather near Tesco, which turned out to be quite good. We had a very relaxing good sleep afterwards. What awaited us the following morning was a big surprise: We were the only two guests in the house and we can choose our breakfast from a menu. Both of us went for a full English Breakfast, which was excellent. Our only regrets is that we could stay only one night. We had to leave for London after breakfast. But we intend to return to stay at the guest house when we come to visit our daughter at Durham next year.

We stayed one night and didn't have much time to enjoy the place but it was lovely. Beautiful modern interior, very clean and comfortable. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fab as well.

I stayed here for a week and was welcomed and shown to my room, which was spotless and was changed every day. The breakfast is incredible and served at a time that suits you was amazing as I was here on business.

Friendly and comfortable B & B

Posted 15-Oct-2015
Pros: Good value for money, friendly and comfortable
Cons: TV reception
Location: Close to Durham and Newcastle, with plenty to see within a short drive.
We stayed for one night, owners very welcoming with a welcome cup of tea; decor immaculate throughout, all facilities were good although TV reception was a bit patchy at times, no problems with a shared bathroom, plenty of choice for breakfast which was tasty and set us up for the day.

Affordable, comfortable and immaculate! A great welcome with a mug of tea and a delicious breakfast in the morning. We were stopping off to drop our son at Durham University and were very happy to have stayed here, just 3 miles out of Durham.
