“Fantastic Place in Durham”
Reviewed 9 September 2011 for a stay in July 2011

person found this review helpful

My colleague and I had work in Durham for the month of July and opted to stay in this apartment, rather than in a hotel. It was a great decision on our part. The apartment is well-appointed and spacious. The windows are nearly floor to ceiling and offer a good deal of light. All of the windows have light-blocking shades that do the trick for sleep. The appliances and utensils cover everything you would ever need. The housekeeping service comes by once a week and gives the place a going-over. Ray, the owner is consciencious and responsive to any request. For example, the flushing panel for the toilet was broken and he came the next day to fix it. The parking space downstairs is perfect and absolutely needed because street parking nearby is metered. The location is right in the middle of town, close to pubs, coffee shops, and restaurants. As other reviews have mentions, this apartment runs along a main street in Durham and does receive a fair amount of street noise. The downstairs bedroom was loud and I had to wear earplugs when the windows were open, but all the windows are double-paned, which reduces the disturbance considerably. There is also an upstairs finished attic that was quite comfortable. The windows are smaller, but that reduced the noise as well. We enjoyed our stay a great deal and would recommend this apartment to our friends!

“We stay and it was the same as home”
Reviewed 6 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

The owner must add an adaptor (for EU citizens) at the equipment of the house.

Thanks for the suggestion - we do have an adaptor which we would have been delighted to provide on request, but on reflection it's probably better to leave one in each Apartment which we have now done.

“An Ideal Oasis in Durham”
Reviewed 5 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We loved our apartment. It was comfortable and spacious and equipped for every need, from kitchen to living room to bathrooms and bedrooms to wifi. We were welcomed personally and felt absolutely at home. The apartments are very conveniently situated for the University, the Cathedral and for shopping. Marvellous! We would not stay anywhere else in Durham now.

“lovely short stay aoartment in centre of Durham”
Reviewed 26 May 2011 for a stay in April 2011

A 2 bedroom apartment with a well equipped kitchen and a spa bath with a mind of it's own. Most short stay accomodation provides the basics: bed, seats, table, but this apartment goes a lot further with comfortable and luxury furnishings. Might be a bit cluttered and eclectic for some peoples' taste ( art deco/art nouveau combined with South East Asia) but I liked it. A very convenient location within easy walking distance of the centre of Durham and the Castle and Cathedral. Can be difficult to find at first and no easy parking when you arrive by car, until you get the keys and can access the locked garage.

“Superb Apartment - great alternative to a hotel”

Private apartment, right in the center of Durham. Extremely private, quaint, stylish - an all-round winner. If you fancy somethin a little less private and more homely than a hotel room, this is for you.
