“great vantage point for taking in Durham, UK”

person found this review helpful

This was our second stay at the Grove, and we found the setting again idealic for taking in Durham, but without being bogged down in traffic or street noise. The location is really ideal should you like to walk a little in to town; and two very different paths take you there: along the river, or along the roads.

Property is exactly as stated, very clean, and most appliances/furnishings are new.

Liked best: quiet location
Liked least: nothing really

“Stylish and comfortable in a perfect location.”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This apartment is tucked away down a track in the Gilesgate area of Durham about 20 mins, hilly walk from the centre. It ihas the wow factor and is a beautifully designed interior in a traditional old college house. Beds are very comfortable and apart from some dusty drawers everything was spotlessly clean. The property is split into apartments so you will have neighbours, which isn't immediately clear from the description, but you will hardly hear them. There were a few tiny issues such as no salt or pepper in the pots, only one mug and the blind in the dining room was stuck in the down position which were all a bit annoying given the price, but I still wouldn't hesitate to go back if we returned to the area. You feel as though you are away from it all in the country, yet you are seconds away from the A roads to take you to Sunderland, Consett etc and only a short walk from the river and town centre.

“Well equipped, and great location for walkers.”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Two adults and two children very much enjoyed the location and amenities found in this apartment. Most appliances were brand new, and the kitchen was very well supplied - as were linens. We enjoyed the walk along the river into the city, rather than taking the car, and the immediate surroundings were quiet and relaxing. The management were very helpful with meeting us with the keys and answering questions when we had any. We will stay here again.

One item was there "shared yard" was not completed yet for our stay, but the management stated they will get it done.
