Reviewed 10 June 2014

Really enjoyed the lesure facility, evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant was good. Television was a bit dated and only 6 channels, décor was nice. The outside of the hotel could of been better there was a lot of long grass and the road was quite bumpy.

Myself and my wife spent four nights at Derwent Manor and thought it really was a lovely hotel. We picked the hotel as a base to visit Beamish Museum, Durham, and Hadrian’s Wall and I really don’t think we could have picked any better. The room was a good size and everything you could want. It was warm, clean, nicely decorated with a comfy bed and fantastic value. The breakfast was a very nice cooked breakfast, and of an evening there was a choice of either the bar or the restaurant with both having a good set of choices on the menu. As the bar was so nice we didn't visit the restaurant, but the bar food certainly didn't disappoint. If I was to raise one very small criticism, and as bizarre as this sounds, we did think it a little unusual that four Dr Who style stone statues seemed to move around the corridors and turn up in different places in the morning. Still, I'm sure there is a good explanation, and whatever the case they kept themselves to themselves and didn't cause any trouble. All in all , thoroughly recommended

Dear Reviewer,

Thank you for your review. I was delighted to read that you and your wife had such a great stay with us...

I will pass your comments to all of the staff. The statues were situated in our Grand Hall and as part of multi million pound refurbishment we are remodelling this room and as such the statues are looking for a new home... Pleased they didn't disturb you too much !!

Kindest regards
