“Absolutley Fantastic”
Reviewed 17 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We booked this beautiful apartment for the weekend and we loved it!! It was so clean and had everything we needed and more. The only thing is we would have likes a chain on the door as our toddler kept trying to escape, other than that it was perfect. We will definately be returning, thank you Wendy.

Thank you ever so much for such positive feedback. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to seeing you again. The building is secured by an external door which is why we do not have a security chain fitted, however we appreciate your necessity for extra child friendly safety devices.

Many thanks
Chris and Wendy

“We will definitely return to this lovely apartment,”
Reviewed 8 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Our daughter is at the University so we have stayed previously in hotels in the area. We just wanted a bit of normality for our stay instead of a hotel experience. Staying in this apartment you can eat in if you wish, get a drink from the fridge, just relax altogether, instead of sitting in a foyer or on a bed at a hotel, ordering room service. it has a lovely sitting room with a view, and it just feels a bit more "normal".
We arrived and were greeted by Wendy and Chris who are friendly and made us feel very welcome. As soon as we arrived I thought what a great place this is for parents like us who cannot make the trip to Durham there and back in a day. The only problem is I don't want this apartment to become too popular, as I want it for myself as we will definitely return! The apartment is spotless, the towels are fluffy, the bedrooms are inviting and comfortable, fitted with quality bedding and there are robes if you wish to use. I really cannot fault it.....even the shower is powerful! The decor is modern and tasteful and went beyond my expectations from the photographs I saw when booking. There is parking in an underground car park which is accessed via a lift from within the block which is nice as parking can be difficult in Durham, so you can just forget about the car. The apartment is in a tranquil setting over looking the river with runners and rowers going by, yet step outside and go around the corner and you are in the town. This place is a credit to Chris and Wendy.

“Luxury and location in Durham !”
Reviewed 6 November 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was a great place to stay in Durham. The apartment is beautifully appointed and the outside decking overlooking the river a real bonus. The location is very convenient. Definitely recommended !

We all loved this apartment. Beautiful rooms, gorgeous terrace, and great location. The owners were very helpful, and the apartment provided all the 'bits' we needed but didn't want to pack. We've already recommended this apartment to people, and would happily stay here again. Thankyou, we loved staying here x

“Excellent rental in Durham”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The apartment is well placed by the river with easy access to Durham city. You can walk over the bridge to city centre , which has many restaurants and bars. The apartment is contemporary and has all mod cons, Nespresso machine is very useful and easy to use.
Chris and Wendy are very nice and helpful , changed the duvet and supplied a fan as we were hot at night. They are always happy to help if you have a problem.
