“Riverside Perfection”
Reviewed 21 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Great location for exploring the City and county of Durham.
Tranquil riverside location. The apartment is furnished and equipped to a high standard.
The owner met us on arrival and provided us with a very generous welcome package. He couldn't be more helpful.
Excellent secure parking with access by lift
Couldn't ask for anything more.
We will come again

“Fantastic apartment in the heart of Durham”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Great location right in the centre of Durham. The apartment was modern, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Owners provided a great hamper to help us settle in and cot and high chair for our 1 year old. Would highly recommend.

“Lovely apartment”
Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This apartment is perfect for a trip to Durham. Despite being only 5 mins from the city centre and cathedral it is really peaceful; the only noise being people rowing on the river which was lovely.
Attention to detail in the apartment was spot on so no need to buy washing up liquid,oil, salt and pepper, milk , tea, coffee etc. There was even a bottle of wine!
Pillows soft, comfy robes, expensive toiletries. It felt like home from home.
Highly recommended

“The perfect solution”
Reviewed 2 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is an outstanding apartment which really does define luxury. Beautifully furnished and decorated with every addition you would wish. The apartment was the perfect location for us. In the centre of Durham, over-looking the river and 5 mins walk from everywhere, it could not have been better. Wendy, Chris and their delightful daughter, Bethany, are also wonderful hosts who quite clearly care about their guests even down to the addition of a chilled bottle of prosecco in the fridge as we were enjoying a family celebration. We will definitely return and I would expect other previous guests will do so as well.

“Fantastic Apartment In A Peaceful Setting!”
Reviewed 29 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

This is a fantastic apartment, in the heart if Durham, but with a peaceful outlook over the River Wear. The deck is a perfect place to watch the world go by and see some great birdlife!. The apartment is very comfortable and everything has been thought of from the complimentary toiletries to the excellent bottle of wine and snacks which greet you on arrival. We were met by Chris and Wendy's daughter who was very helpful and explained everything to us and kept in touch during our stay. We will be coming back as soon as possible!

“A serene and central location in the heart of Durham”
Reviewed 22 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My wife and I chose this apartment for our first ever visit to Durham. We found it lived-up to all previous reviews that have rated it highly. The apartment is very well equipped and maintained. The outside terrace overlooking the river is very good for relaxing, while watching others working themselves hard in rowing boats on the river. For Durham city centre, leave the car in the secure parking beneath the building and walk/stroll around. However, it is also quick and easy to drive out of the city to explore the surrounding areas. The welcome pack is useful and generous, and the bottle of wine was very drinkable. The owners are totally helpful and give a good introduction the property.

“Perfect place to stay.”
Reviewed 22 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This was the second time I stayed at Kingsgate Bridge view and will be booking again. It's an excellent place to stay if visiting Durham, it's a beautiful apartment, decorated to a high standard and immaculately clean. In the city centre, but peaceful and quiet. Lovely sitting out on the decking watching the river and waving to the passing boats. The apartment has everything you could need for a comfortable stay and checking in and out is easy. Excellent secure parking too. The owners Chris and Wendy are lovely and nothing is a bother to them if you had a problem during your stay. Very highly recommended.
