I used to live in Bishop Auckland, and was catching up on old times. The Manor House stood out as a good place to stay, even in Durham planning has not treated West Auckland well.
The Manor is a 600 year-old gem! And the present management has tried its hardest to reflect this. The bed was luxurious, the food and drink excellent for the price. The environment incomparable. And it was glorious to find an hotel that was not over-heated!!
On the down side, there are many small instances where the Manor is let down by lack of attention to detail. Our bath and shower had very mimited flow of hot water, matched by a semi-blocked shower drain. The tiling above the bath had been carried out by an amateur, and the curtain rail listed badly!
However, the Manor is such a glorious place, and SW Durham hospitality was so much as I wanted (and expected) it to be, that the stay was just great. Staff who were pleased to be serving customers made the experience complete.
