Basic but good value

The only place near Durham I could find a triple room, making it by far the cheapest option.

The inn is old, the floor slopes and my bed creaked but we slept well. Breakfast was good and served quickly.

Over night

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The room was basic but pleasant. The light in the main light in the bathroom did not work but there was a smaller light which was proficient. The room was comfortable. The breakfast was ok maybe adding tomatoes to it would have made it better. Over all a pleasant experience.
