My wife and I stayed here on a two night "Ramblers Break" (no rambling need be done) in May 2012. We booked a two night DBB break with a bottle of wine included on the first night, one afternoon tea and one packed lunch and access to the leisure centre for a total cost of £170 which was good value. The food was very good and the staff were welcoming and friendly. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The hotel is a bit isolated on the border of Durham and Northumberland, but that's no problem. There are plenty of things to do in the area. The only minor niggle was the the television in the room was very old (a heavy crt model on a plinth on the floor so that it was not easy to watch it in bed) and although it received "freeview" channels the staff were unable to get subtitles to work - something of a necessity if you are hard of hearing as is my wife. It was ironic that the previous night we had stayed in a £29 a night Premier Inn which had a modern 40" television in the room. For a Best Western branded hotel we thought that this was surprising, but overall it didn't spoil a good value break.
