Durham is a great city with historical buildings and fabulous restaurants.
The apartment was stunning and Ray couldn't have been more helpful.
Loved the secure basement parking.
Location is perfect and we found the apartment just as described. Loved the decor and the little touches that Ray had added - thanks for the wine! Even the weather was good. Do I want to share this review? Difficult - if everyone hears how good the place is, it might be difficult for me to book again in the future. Thanks, Ray. We will definitely visit your wonderful city again.
Stayed for just the one night - Friday 26th January '18.
Secure underground parking, SO useful in the centre of a city.
Nice balance of boutiquey decoration and practicality. . . . lovely "feel" :)
Helpful "meet and greet" with the owner who was very accommodating on our arrival and departure timing - thank you Ray :)
Flowers, wine, chocolate, pringle tortillas, croissants, orange juice, milk, butter, jams and marmalade, plenty of towels, comfy beds - nice touches.
Central location so noise, on a Friday, was always inevitable but the secondary double glazing on the period windows at the front of the building helped block out the evening stream of student revellers into the city. In fact people watching from the second floor was definitely a plus for our teenage daughters . . . a glimpse into University life! :D
Second time we have stayed here and standards as high as always. We had a lovely stay and will definitely be back!
We returned to this 2nd apartment owned by Ray, as we had previously stayed in the Oasis and were again very impressed, as the standard of accommodation is just as good. We enjoyed it so much that we asked to stay for a 4th night.
Sharon did the Meet and Greet this time, and was very friendly and helpful indeed. This apartment has a big kitchen if you want to rustle up something and eat in, but there are plenty of places to eat and drink if cooking is not your thing. There were utensils/ crockery etc in abundance.
The double bed was extremely comfortable and the bathrobes very cosy to lounge around in. Nice bathroom with lots of hot water and fluffy towels to enjoy a power shower or luxuriating bath. Lots of games, books, DVD's, Classical CD's to browse through if you fancy staying in and just chilling. We did not use the upstairs bedroom, but that was equally nice if there are more than 2 of you.
Nice touches as in the Oasis...wine, sherry, orange juice, snacks, Toblerone etc and even sellotape and sewing kit if needed.
We'll definitely return to one of these lovely apartments .... Really recommend to others!!
Simply outstanding !!!!!
Fabulous,stylish, super clean apartment a stones throw away from the heart of Durham centre.
Ray thankyou we will be back soon.
