Into the comfortable lounge with dining area and well equipped modern kitchen in an L shape. Patio doors to a balcony overlooking ...
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
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.
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
Great location. Walking distance to sights and restaurants. Excellent staff.
Durham University is one of the United Kingdom's leading universities, highly ranked in national and international league tables. It is within walking distance of a good range of hotels and inns in Durham, and only a short car journey from many more elsewhere in the city and the rest of County Durham.
Durham University received official university status in 1832, which makes it England's third oldest university. Like Oxford and Cambridge, it has a special collegiate system with numerous constituent colleges, the oldest of which is based at the castle. Over the years, the university has produced many notable alumni, from successful cricketer Andrew Strauss to Eden Project founder Tim Smit.
No visit to this city would be complete without witnessing the architectural splendour of its cathedral and castle, which form a UNESCO World Heritage Site and are more than 900 years old. Book a guided tour of the castle interior which now houses students of the university, then explore the spectacular cathedral and see its rare stone-vaulted ceiling.
At many hotel lobbies, you will be able to pick up restaurant business cards and leaflets offering information on upcoming events at the castle, cathedral and other attractions in Durham.
This delightful attraction includes various themed gardens decorated with diverse plant life and beautiful glass houses. Each season, they transform into different shades of colour, from the bright flowers of summer to the deep oranges and reds of autumn, and the glass houses also contain numerous exotic plants such as cacti.
Offering a superb collection of Chinese and Ancient Egyptian artefacts, the Durham University Oriental Museum is a leading archaeological attraction organises several special exhibitions throughout the year. In fact, it is the only museum of its kind in northern England, forming part of the university's extensive Heritage Collections.
As you might expect, the overwhelming majority of hotels near Durham University offer WiFi access so you can keep up with your social media and stay in touch with friends and family via Skype.
