Five star private accommodation in a fantastic location. We were in Durham for my son's wedding and it was the absolute 'icing on the cake' to stay in such a beautiful flat. Everything and more was provided, from the hamper of food, the Prosecco and strawberries in the fridge …

Thank you for your very kind comments Jeffrey, we’re very pleased to read that you’d welcome us to others. Thank you as well for your advisory points, we’ll certainly review the written instructions we provide to make sure all bases are covered. There are however a couple of points we must come back on as I’m concerned they might give others the wrong impression Firstly it might help if I explain that the divide on the river you refer to is the weirs (and a salmon count) a famous Durham City historical landmark dating back to the 1600’s. Secondly and I mean you no offence but your comments about the ‘Riverwalk’ development are simply incorrect. I have personally spoken to the developers today and they have confirmed to me that it is on schedule to complete in August or September 2018, it is in its latter stages and local by-laws prohibits late night and weekend working. I would add that I’ve also spoken to several local residents today who are unaware of any late night noise from the site. I might be worth me adding that on completion Riverwalk will provide a fabulous array of terraced restaurants, boutique shops and fashionable retailers along the river, with a softly lit promenade to enjoy views of the Castle. I hope you don’t mind me adding balance to your own very constructive comments and we do look forward to you staying with us again at some point in future
