We had our wedding here and we could not have been more impressed! Everything was perfect, Charlie (the manager) and Callum (the assistant) are unflappable and are always In control, staff are personable, the venue is beautiful and the food amazing! I cannot speak more highly and we will definitely be returning soon!

I had Afternoon Tea at Bownburn Hall three times between Oct 2015 and Jan 2016 because it was great value. However, last Monday when I took another friend we were disappointed by the poor value. The price has increased but the portions have been reduced. The cakes are tiny compared to what was on offer previously and the trifle option... More

I believe most of the bedrooms have now been refurbed to a high standard so will put paid to earlier comments on bedrooms. Lovely décor with beautiful bathrooms and a great shower. We went for an early evening bite to eat, there was a good atmosphere in lovely surroundings, just outside Durham and just off the motorway - so handy... More

What a gem. Stayed for 1 night bed and breakfast. The service was very helpful and friendly, my room was very pleasant, spotlessly clean with good amenities and a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was delicious. I had a really pleasant and comfortable stay. Great value for money.

Spent three nights at this hotel. Delightful, friendly, professional staff create a relaxed atmosphere. Good food, very comfortable bed, clean room made for a pleasant break. A good deal of the food is locally sourced and cooked and presented with imagination. Do not be put off by the approach to the hotel, once inside I was pleasantly surprised. Good value.... More
