The Old Mill

Reviewed 30 July 2006

We had the pleasure of staying at the Old Mill twice this Spring, one of nine hotels we stayed in during our three weeks in northern England and Scotland. Our daughter was married at Eggleston Hall, Barnard Castle, and after the weekend festivities and our stay at Eggleston Hall ended, we wanted a convenient hotel to Durham. Obviously, we were very satisfied with the Old Mill to choose a second stay after looping through the Lake District and into Scotland. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the food and service were quite good. I agree with the previous poster that it is not easy to find the first time. The modern rooms were very clean and large by European standards, especially the lovely bathrooms.

After spending a few days in chintzy rooms in various hotel/Inns in Yorkshire dales it was a very pleasant change to arrive at the former paper mill. The rooms have only recently been converted from the nightclub part of the inn & are very modern in decor. Food in the bar/restaurant was also well worth it - plenty of choice and great helpings.It was a little hard to find but we got there. We were collecting a student from Durham university & it was exactly 9 miles to her accommodation at Gilesgate.
