Stayed here for one night mid August and it was perfect! The room was spotlessly clean, the beds were SO comfortable and the shower was great. The room was very modern with a homely feel to it and the bathroom was brand new! (Well it looked it as it was sparkling). As for the breakfast in the morning, well that...

Fantastic stay, Durham house has a great location in Beer. The room was spotless and very well maintained. I was a little worried about the showers from reading other reviews but there was lots of hot water and good pressure. This is obviously a well established and well run B&B with experienced owners. The breakfast was good - can reccomend...
