Stayed at this lovely B&B for a couple of nights whilst celebrating our silver anniversary. The owner, Martin, surprised us by decorating our room with silver balloons and a bottle of Cava and chocolate cake - a very nice touch. Room was spacious and would have been very quiet had it not been for the high winds rattling around the...

I am pleased you enjoyed your silver anniversary and trust the wild weather didn't spoil your enjoyment too much. As the name implies the house was originally on the edge of the moors, even though we are only a five minute drive from the city centre and hence the weather occasionally can be a little extreme, depending on the wind...

A lovely B&B. Really nice room ... Spacious, clean and peaceful. Comfy bed. Owner friendly and helpful. Breakfast really good. A lovely walk along the river into the city (even though first 10 minutes along a road it's worth it). If you don't want to walk a bus stop is over the road with services into Durham City every 10...

Thank you for your kind review and I am pleased you enjoyed your stay at Moor End Guest House. It is a lovely walk along the river into Durham although as you say there is also an excellent bus service, every 10 minutes during the day, or a five minute drive into the centre of Durham.

We had a wonderful weekend in Durham and stayed at this guest house where owner Martin made us feel very welcome. Our rooms were extremely comfortable and there was loads of choice of what to have for breakfast. If we ever return to Durham, we'll definitely stay here again

We stayed here for a weekend at the end of Feb/beginning of March so that we could visit our son who studies at the University. Martin was very welcoming, the room was clean and warm and surprisingly quiet even though we were at the front of the house overlooking the road. Parking was fine once we knew where to go....

We selected Moor End as a base to investigate Durham and the North East for 3 nights. Belmont is a small village 5 min drive,10 min on regular bus and 30 min walk into Durham. Parking in the City not great so recommend cheap bus or perhaps walk in and bus/ cab back.Its a steep uphill return from the City!...

Let's start with the positives. The bed was very comfortable. This b & b is also quite clean, and the owner responds positively to all reasonable requests. The building seems historic or at least quaint. Nonetheless, we didn't have such a happy experience. The b & b is quite a bit further from the center of Durham than we had...

Very friendly and helpful host. The twin room was practical and had lovely decor and was clean. All facilities provided. The en suite shower was cold as there was no heating in there and the shower was tepid. But we only stayed one night so not such a huge problem. Comfy beds.
