“Very good low cost bed and breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

I was visiting Durham with my son to check out the university. We booked into St Chads, one of the colleges, for bed and breakfast. This is a lovely old building right in the centre of Durham. Our room was directly across the road from the cathedral, and in the morning I woke up to the sun glinting off the cathedral's stunning rose window. The room was very clean and newly refurbished. The bed was comfortable and I slept like a log! The en-suites were all already booked, so there was a basin in the room but bathrooms were shared. This was not really a problem though, and the facilities were new and clean. There is a good bar in the college open till quite late and breakfast was plentiful and buffet-style in the college dining hall, a beautiful room. There is also a lovely garden to walk around or sit in. There is no parking next to the college but we were able to drop our bags off and were given a pass and directions to free parking elsewhere, a short and very pleasant walk away across the river. For the price, this was an exceptional bed & breakfast experience.

Room Tip: Shared facilities are fine but we did have to wait a little while for the shower in the morning.

We stayed in the guest housing at St. Chad's College, one of the colleges that make up Durham University. St. Chad's is right across the street from the cathedral, so you get a quarterly dose of the bells. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and there is daily maid service. Our room shared a communal shower and toilet, but some smaller rooms are en suite. The location could not be better--a short walk to the market centre and scores of restaurants. There is a shuttle bus from the cathedral to the bus and train stations. Breakfast is in the college dining hall and offers the "English" breakfast menu plus continental alternatives. Bed & breakfast guests have reserved tables, so you don't have to jostle with the summer students for a seat. The college has a sort of lounge in its covered courtyard, complete with a bar and TV room. It is also the only place with wi-fi reception. The rooms have a hardwire connection. Both require opening an account with the college. The overall cost is a good value.
