We stayed in March at Gadds which we thought was lovely. The reception is quite dark but atmospheric. Reception staff and breakfast lady were very friendly and welcoming. We weren't blessed with good weather but still enjoyed Durham. We chose to stay in Ruby room which ad previously noted was quite dark but quite sumptuous. Because the bath was there we got in it but it did seem a bit quirky to be bathing at the end of the bed. Shower was gorgeous. Water and chocolates on arrival and water replaced on second day which was welcome. You must take a good supply of £1 coins as you have to feed the meter from 8am until 6 pm at £1 per hour. Beware the parking meter man he will get you if he can. We ate at Bells fish and chip place and the Lebanese restaurant (San Marco I think) which were both lovely.
Breakfast was cereal and juice to start, only order porridge if you are hungry as it was beautifully cooked and prepared but a large portion. Cooked ranged from full breakfast to eggs benedict and others all freshly cooked and nicely presented on lovely crockery.
