Classy apartment in superb location
My wife and I had a three night break in this beautiful apartment in July 21. The location is superb, just a few minutes walk from the centre of Durham with lovely views at the rear of the property over the river. The quality of the furnishings and fittings inside the property are excellent and the decor is very tasteful. There is a secure, underground parking space at the apartment which removes any issues with finding parking nearby. The hosts Chris & Wendy are extremely easy to deal with and go out of their way to ensure that you receive a warm welcome. Highly recommended.

Fabulous apartment, great location, wonderful hosts
We’ve had our second stay in this great apartment. The location is right in the heart of Durham, with all the facilities of the town on the doorstep, but in a very quiet location. The apartment itself is beautifully furnished, no expense spared. Plenty of room for 4 guests to relax, the living room having lovely large windows and french doors out to the decking overlooking the river. The hosts were very accomodating, collecting us from the station and then showing us around the apartment, leaving us fresh pastries, milk, butter, eggs, bread, jam, and a stocked nespresso machine ! And wine. A lovely stay and would definitely book again for our next trip to Durham.

Can’t be bettered
We loved our stay here so much, we booked another in the car on the way home. Space, location, amenities, comfort, and above all the hosts are top notch. Nothing was too much for Chris and Wendy - we couldn’t get there till two in the morning and they didn’t turn a hair. Looking forward to our return.

Spectacular in every way
Don’t walk, run to book this apartment. The finishings, size and location are top notch. Two stories with two large bedrooms and two very well designed and appointed bathrooms. Robes hanging in your bedroom upon arrival. Fresh eggs, bread, scones with butter, jam and clotted cream waiting at arrival. Milk and orange juice in the fridge. Oh yes, and a bottle of wine waiting to be consumed. The location in the centre of Durham is excellent and convenient to everything. The large veranda outside the living room ( reached by French doors)overlooks the river Weir and a wonderful place to start or finish the day. Watch the rowing skiffs go by or just enjoy the peace and quiet. The apartment also comes with a washing machine and dishwasher and fridge and freezer. Large flat screen TV with Netflix and radio. Our hosts Wendy & Chris and their daughter were excellent in every way. There is also complimentary secure covered parking. Like I said run don’t walk to this apartment. You will not be disappointed. And if it matters, there is a Starbucks on the corner! But with all the great bars, restaurants and coffee shops in Durham who needs Starbucks. Thanks Wendy & Chris for a fantastic stay.

Fantastic 5 Star Apartment
Stayed at Elvet Apartment for the weekend and it was perfect in every way – the apartment was beautifully presented and very comfortable in a quiet peaceful location overlooking the river yet within an easy 5 min stroll of the city centre. Little touches such as the basket of complementary extras was very much appreciated, and the owners couldn’t have been more helpful. Would unhesitatingly recommend the apartment to anyone thinking of staying in the area and the apartment fully deserves a 5-star rating. Can’t wait to make a return visit.

Luxury apartment in centre of Durham
This apartment is in an ideal location to visit Durham, its a five minute walk to the city centre. There was a nice selection of eating and drinking places near by. Parking was excellent as it was in a secured garage under the building. We met Chris the owner to let us in and he was very friendly and showed us everything we needed to know about the apartment. It was even better than the photos very well furnished etc there was everything you needed in the kitchen if you wanted to self cater but we ate out during our stay. Nice little touches like a welcome basket (wine, crisps, biscuits etc), milk & orange in the fridge also tea, coffee & sugar there too. Lovely toiletries in the bathrooms and robes etc. There is decking outside on the balcony and chairs & table to sit out and watch the boats go by. We would definitely recommend this apartment

Stunning in every respect
I chose this apartment because of the previous reviews and how accurate they proved to be. This is truly a stunning apartment though it has the feel of a house due to the stairs leading to the bedrooms, with excellent secure underground parking. It is an oasis of calm to come back to after a busy day out. The owners obviously care deeply about their guests, providing a personal service ensuring their every need is met. Would recommend without hesitation.

Divine Durham apartment.
The apartment was excellent in every respect. Clean, comfortable, with secure parking in the centre of the city. Durham is a very accessible city. A visit to Bell's Fish and Chips is a must. Beamish is also a fabulous day out. During our stay June 8 to 15 the Durham Regatta was brilliant over the 2 day weekend. The University Botanic Gardens are also well worth a visit.
