“Worth a trip”
Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Just back from a fantastic meal here, food good, portions good, taste excellent, value for money excellent, excellent service. Starters around £4, mains around £8, sides around £3 very good value for indians, pub prices for drinks. Overall a short drive out of durham for a very hearty meal with excellent service at a fair price.

Family weekend. Praveen's customer service is excellent. Rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent, local butchers sausage and bacon in the full English, cooked to order (have stayed in some pricier hotels with cheap ingredients where everything is cooked at 6:30am and kept under lamps!) Short drive to Durham and there is a kids playground / football pitch across the road, handy if you have children. Recommended.

Tried Penashs takeaway service last night for the first time, our meal was superb! A truly authentic experience totally superior to your average Indian takeaway. Would definitely recommend it and we will try the restaurant next.....

We were very happy to find the Croxdale Inn when we otherwise couldn't find a room in the Durham area recently. It's a very short and easy drive into town and includes ample parking, excellent rooms, and a great Indian restaurant. We also enjoyed the friendly bar with their big screen TV and selection of ciders, beers, and wines. The owner was most accommodating when we needed to change our reservation at the last minute and the restaurant/bar staff were also very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean, the beds comfortable, and the showers/bathrooms perfect. We'll definitely be back.:)

This is a good clean B and B, for a reasonable price. Staff are friendly and helpful too. I wouldn't eat in the restaurant though...it's had good reviews on this website but I found it pretty tasteless fare.

Had our first of several future experience to this restaurant. It's tucked away in a little village on the outskirts of Durham. Every dish was carefully and creatively prepared and presented. Mouth watering taste. Will be spreading the word and back again soon. Lovely staff.

Service was very friendly in hotel. Rooms a little expensive as they are a bit tired and need a revamp. Music from bar was a little loud although they turned down straight away when we mentioned. Indian restaurant delivered excellent food. The back car park needs a tidy up as it puts you off when you pull up and staff smoking out back not a great impression either. Overall stay was ok but the very attentive service.

Room Tip: away from bar cus of noise
