We arrived at Durham House and found no one to greet us. I knew from our previous visit that we had to stop on double yellow lines outside and rush in to pick up a parking permit for the local car park but wasn't expecting to have to look around for an envelope with our keys and permit inside.. Our...

The apartment was recently refurbished to a high standard and was lovely and clean. Breakfast was delivered to the apartment each morning with a very good selection of fresh fruit, yoghurts, cereals, pastries and juices, coffee and tea. There was a honesty bar with a standard offering of beers, wines and spirits. We were really impressed with the bathroom, it...

My daughter and I had come down to Beer for a few days and we chose Durham House. First impressions when you walk in are 'this is a nice place' clean, tidy and welcoming. We weren't disappointed when shown to our room either tastefully decorated and spotless everywhere. The breakfasts were lovely and the best poached eggs I have had...

We were lucky enough to stay at the Durham house B&B for two nights last weekend. Richard & Sophie ( the new owners ) took it over earlier in the year and have done a fabulous job in how they are running it. The rooms were really good with en suite showers and were spotlessly clean. The cooked breakfast was...

This is an excellent B&B, right in the high street, short stroll to several good restaurants. The owner was there when we arrived, he was welcoming and very relaxed. The room was lovely, big brass bed and plenty of tea bags (can't believe how many B&Bs only give you 2 - not enough for afternoon and morning tea for 2)....

This was our second visit here to Durham house and probably won't be our last. It's a lovely place to stay both the guest house and Beer itself. The owners have changed since our last visit but they were just as welcoming and have kept up the great standards of the accommodation.

My wife and I decided to take a couple of days in Beer. Upon arrival at our b&b the first impression was how friendly the locals were. We walked through the village & at least four people asked how we were & had we had a good journey down. This continued for the 2 days. Normally people are a little...

We only stayed for one night as a respite on our journey from Cornwall to Hampshire before celebrating my partner's birthday with family at the weekend, but would love to have stayed for longer. Durham House is a delightful B and B in the lovely carefree village of Beer. Very easy going atmosphere from the moment we arrived, which is...

Durham House is in an excellent location on the main high street in Beer. The owners give you a very warm welcome and are extremely helpful. The rooms are spotlessly clean and well furnished and decorated very tastefully. Beautiful bed linen and all the little extras including cake for afternoon tea in the room. The breakfast in the morning is...
