Liked:- Great food - generous quantities perfectly cooked . Convenient, quiet country location for Durham & Sunderland; Attractive gardens; peaceful view from bedroom ; free wi-fi that didn't need a special log-in; smart refurbished bathroom and - despite other reviews - pleasant and helpful staff.
Disliked - Cramped 2nd floor room on 1st visit 2 years ago, (so paid for larger 1st floor room this time) ; Scruffiness of some areas - dirty looking carpets in bedroom and dining room, torn window seat cushion,, threadbare bits of carpet on stairs. Odd mix of elderly furniture - other hotels can do antique/repro much better. Whimsical room servicing on arrival - very clean (except for carpet), but tea missing from hospitality tray, loo roll concealed in cupboard, luxurious thick winter duvet in mid summer. Drinks prices seemed a bit higher than comparable hotels, too.
We made a point of avoiding staying during a wedding or big conference, so the hotel was mostly very quiet. School 'proms' running whilst we were there had no impact on us.
Rooms may be unsuitable for anyone with mobility problems as all are on 1st or 2nd floor and we didn't notice a lift.
