“Dirtiest place ever stayed in!”
Reviewed 2 June 2013 via mobile

Me and my partner were in Durham on business, ended up booking b&b last minute on a Saturday evening. Queens head was one of the few that had a room available.
The sink in the room had hair and paper stuck in the plug hole, a mirror next to it had lot of toothpaste stains, the bin was full of empty strongbow cans, cobwebs hanging from a squint lampshade, no bulb in the side lamp, brown stains on the kettle, dirty carpet and curtains and inches of dust everywhere.
Breakfast what they called continental was a choice of 2 cereal types and bread with the toaster propped on a chair, hot water in the flask and sachets of coffee, tea and sugar all mixed up in an old ice cream tub. Worse than a hostel.
The whole place is in need of renovation but at the end of the day there is no excuse for dirty rooms.
We ended up having a meal in the same pub at night too and the steak was terrible. Indeed should stick to just being a pub

Should stick to being a pub and not a hotel! Rooms are the worst that I have ever seen! They are like prisons with only a horrible dirty sink in and dirty communal bathroom. White rug in the room which is actually black, a cabinet that has rotted! Do your self a favour and book a premier inn for a good stay!

The Queens Head is under new management as of 13/10/16 we are situated east of the center of Durham and have just undergone a slight refurbish downstairs in the bar and restaurant to a very high standard.

We are serving great quality Steaks, from the grill, a burger menu to rival anyone's our fish and chip shop menu, our sharer platters and much more, so there's something for everyone.
