I had looked at pictures before my visit but was still pleasantly surprised. My room was quite large and there is free WiFi. With the tea and coffee in the room there was also two twix fingers. A nice touch! Shower room needed a little TLC and probably a new shower mat otherwise I would have rated it 5. Great...

I stayed in the downstairs twin room, opposite the owner's living room. The B and B is run by a lovely elderly couple who can't do enough for you. I did find it a little strange when he sat with me at breakfast and ate his own and propped my door open after showing me the room however I'm happy...

I booked this B&B based on previous reviews, but they didn't reveal the reality of what my wife and I experienced. We don’t book the cheapest place, usually something around £60 a night. The older couple and their old blind Jack Russell, Charlie, were pleasant enough, but the accommodation was substandard & the décor, although recently updated, appears to have...

A welcoming, homely guest house. John, his wife Jacqui and Charlie (the dog) made my short business trip relaxing and friendly. Comfy rooms, good traditional English breakfast, and the very reasonable price, make this a much better choice than expensive, impersonal hotels; especially if you are travelling alone as I was.

I spent two nights at this lovely little guest house while attending at wedding in Durham. I was travelling alone but was given a huge ensuite room all to myself with a choice of three beds! Nothing was too much trouble for John and Jacqueline. They don't provide evening meals but are were happy to let me use their restaurant...

Stayed there on a lads football weekend and I was a little disappointed. The owner was very friendly but as for the guest house that's another story. It's very dated and needs sprucing up throughout. Slightly strange layout in the room I was in with the wash basin separate from the loo and shower. My bed creaked every time you...

This is an older Guest House but the price is right. Very friendly and helpful hosts and excellent breakfast. Needs some upgrades. Convenient location on a busy road so back rooms likely quieter. Off street parking a plus.

Myself, my partner and my father have just had a wonderful 4 night stay at The Hill Rise Guest House. From the moment we arrived John and Jacqui (not to mention their dog, Charlie!) made us feel welcome, a theme which continued throughout our stay. Although they only took over in May, and have been extremely busy, they are slowly...
