Very disappointing ......

On arrival at 11.15pm, pub was closed and nobody answering the phone.

I had to find another room in central Durham and got to bed an 1am Tuesday morning. I complained to Late Rooms, who were fantastic and managed to get in touch with someone at the pub by email as there was no answer on the phone. Pub rang me the following morning and after a brief discussion I decided to stay there for the remaining 3 nights. However, very disappointed as the single room I stayed in had a very strong damp musty smell, even on the clean bed linen, not the healthiest of environments to sleep in. On a positive note, the breakfast was very good.
