The room was spacious and our drinks arrived quickly while we browsed the menu which we were very varied but to our surprise provided...

Great food, great staff, had a pensioners special for lunch and it was delicious, plates hot food hot and all homemade, just couldn't fault it. The hotel itself is lovely, kind of shabby chic/boutique and has a very homely feel.

Stayed one night visiting Durham area. In daytime some noise comes through from pub downstairs as to be expected. Also some from neighbouring rooms. No problems later at night though.
