Booked two nights to attend a concert in Durham cathedral. On arrival nobody there at the agreed time. No off street parking available as advertsi d on the web site and probably hadn't been available for some time. Had to find parking in residential area or on the main road. Breakfast adequate but not an extensive choice. Expensive for what...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I would respond that when guests book via online booking agencies and state an arrival time outside of my check in time it does not mean that it is an agreed check in time, quite the opposite. My check in policy is quite clearly stated as 'check in is between...

We (2 adults & 2 children aged 13&15) stayed here in August 2016. Fantastic place, great service. Nice pub literally a short stroll away. Room, Beds, Bathroom etc. all top notch. Highly recommend this place for local and price if you’re looking for good clean accommodation with a nice English breakfast to start your day. Thanks again!!!

Me and my partner stopped off here a couple of weeks ago (Sat 29th October), just for one nights stay.

I am pleased you enjoyed your stay and I am sorry you found the stairs up to the second floor a bit awkward. The stairs are a 'winding' staircase, not uncommon in Victorian houses, and not as wide as the main staircase up to the first floor. Whilst I have a double and two twin rooms on the first floor,...

Thank you for your kind review and your recommendation for Moor End Guest House. I am pleased everything was satisfactory for you. I would note that the three breakfasts were actually for you, your partner and your son. I believe it would be a struggle to eat all three breakfasts yourself, as lovely as they are.
