“Better than a hotel!”

We had a lovely time in Durham, all enhanced by this great apartment. The living area was spacious and well equipped. The bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of storage space, and great to have 2 loos! We had our 8yr old and our 8mth old baby with us. Luckily the baby has not learnt to crawl yet - I would not recommend the space for a baby/toddler/young child who is mobile as there are lots and lots of lovely decorative items around the place.
It was very warm while we were there (unusually lucky for Durham!) and we were grateful the owners had provided a fan as the flat did hold the heat. Being so close to the city centre was great, but it was very noisy late nights/ early mornings with the windows wide open. This was no different to last year when we stayed in the Royal county hotel almost opposite, and we paid more for the hotel and had to share our room with the children!
The owners were particularly generous leaving breakfast, and loads of little essentials like toilet roll, dishwasher tablets and shower gel. It was also great to have secure parking in central Durham, with a lift to access the apartment.
We will be back again, but probably not for a few years as the baby has to get passed the 'breakable' stage!

This was a perfect location and the facilities were excellent with a very short walk to shops/restaurants & bars. Would definitely stay here again! My friends and I all loved the apartment, if felt very homely too :)... huge recommendation from myself. Ray also supplied croissants for breakfast which was a very kind gesture.

“perfect location”
Reviewed 30 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Stayed here with friends for one night on a weekend. We were meeting more friends in the centre of Durham during the day so this 1 or 2 minute walk to where we were meeting them (right in the middle of Durham shops/ restaurants) was perfect! Apartment was lovely, in fact we wish we has more time during the day to chill in the apartment. Lovely decoration and everything there that is needed, also the bath is also a must. Parking very secure, the lift can only take 2 people in at a time which was a little annoying but didn't cause any inconvenience.

“Quality and comfort in a convenient location”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We rented Moonlight and Oasis apartments together for a wedding party. Worked very well. Secure parking is a bonus in Durham. Facilities and location excellent for anyone wanting to visit the City. Owner was very helpful and communication was excellent.

Great apartment stylish and located ideally for centre of Durham. Definitely a good place to stay.

“we found a gem of a place.....no wonder it's called Oasis”
Reviewed 11 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Central location, well equipped throughout. Hot powerful shower but would help if the shower screen could be extended so that the floor does not get washed as well! It’s a shame the Jacuzzi did not work. Helpful list of places to eat as well as board games, guide books, leaflets, books, DVDs. This is a luxurious apartment for just 3 people and we loved coming back to it to chill out after each day’s activities. Basement parking meant we did not have to look for parking either and there is a lift from the basement to the apartment.

Thanks for your great review of Durham Oasis - sorry to hear the Jacuzzi was out of action, this was simply the safety trip which needed to be reset in the cupboard next to the entrance door. Maybe we can impress you with it in future!

My husband and I went to Durham for the Ashes this year. We had already been travelling for 3 months in Europe and England. Staying at the Durham Oasis apartment was a delight. The 2 bedroom apartment was one of the best..Neat, clean and comfortable .All arrangements made months in advance from Australia went exactly to plan. I would highly recommend this apartment and the lovely town. All the nice little touches of food in fridge for breakfast to the lovely bunch of fresh flowers on the dining table. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable.
