Reviews - The Lambton Hounds Inn

3Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
62-64 Front Street, Pity Me, , Durham, DH1 5DE
A warm welcome awaits you from the owners of The Lambton Hounds Inn, Katy Wolsey & her brother James. We invite you to enjoy a relaxing drink in the cosy snug, sample one of the cask ales, or taste our great value steaks and homemade Sunday lunch in our restaurant. The Lambton Hounds Inn provides the ideal location for a weekend break in the heart of the North East. Situated in the village of Pity Me, less than 2 miles from the city of Durham, The Lambton Hounds is a 250-year-old, family run coaching inn on the Great North Road from York to Newcastle. With a congenial atmosphere and inviting fireplace, it is a popular local with a traditional British pub atmosphere. With a wide selection of both keg and cask-conditioned beers on offer, comfortable en-suite accommodation and delicious homemade food in our restaurant, The Lambton Hounds can provide an excellent base to explore the historic city of Durham. We currently have a choice of seven rooms for visitors to choose from and pride ourselves on the high standards maintained throughout this traditional B&B. All rooms have en-suite facilities with a choice of bath or shower. Rooms are equipped with the kind of facilities you would expect of a three star National Tourist Board approved bed and breakfast. In addition to our seven bedrooms we have a cosy snug, traditional bar with pool table, dartboard & jukebox, a relaxing beer garden and a lounge bar. An interesting feature of our lounge bar is that it has the original cocktail bar of the RMS Olympic, sister ship of the Titanic. The Lambton Hounds is conveniently placed with excellent park and ride facilities close by for easy access to the North East's most famous sights and tourist attractions including: The Durham Cathedral heritage site, historic Durham City, the Baltic Art gallery & Millennium Bridge, Beamish museum, the Angel of the North and the Riverside Stadium. We also have ample parking on site in our large car park situated at the rear of the pub.

over night stay
The room was very out dated and dirty! The walls were half stripped waiting to be decorated which should have been finished before the room was let. It was definetly not worth the money in which i payed for it.

my stay near Christmas 2012
The male manager?barman? was not very friendly when i arrived. The room was shabby and the bathroom a bit smelly. The bed was very uncomfortable and i did not feel safe as i was the only guest in the hotel on one of the nights. The lady manager?owner? was nice and assured me she lived next door, but i was still afraid as the back door to the hotel and leading to the rooms was not very secure. i hardly slept a wink. i would not feel safe staying here again.

One-night stay
Room was fine and cosy but the ensuite let it down a bit. There was mould round the bath. Food was second to none both in the evening and breakfast the next morning.

Enjoyed the stay, staff really friendly & all worked extremely hard
The only critism is the rooms are a bit dated but in having said that it was spotlessly clean

Nothing to shout about...
Stayed in a family room, 1 double and 2 singles with my elderly parents and my partener, Room was clean and tidy but all 3 of the beds were hard, the toilet kept making a noise every few minutes all night and we were all disapointed that the hotel didnt offer a cooked evening meal on a sunday night. This hotel is nothing to shout about, would not want to stay here for more than 1-2 nights.
