Reviews - The Bowes Incline Hotel

4Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
Bowes Incline Hotel, Northside Northside, Chester le Street, DH3 1RF
Welcome to the Bowes Incline Family Owned Country Pub and Hotel

The Hotel maintains the 18 en-suite rooms and warm, friendly welcome which have made it extremely popular with visitors to the region.

However, it is as an eating place that visitors will see the greatest changes to the Hotel. The property has been carefully redesigned to accommodate over 100 diners and yet maintain a relaxed atmosphere

The new design acknowledges the importance of the Bowes Incline in regional industrial history and uses it to produce an interesting, intimate and smoke-free setting in which you can enjoy dishes from a menu created to be both appealing and tempting.

A gem of a place
Wow what a little gem. Really impressed with everything - room, food and especially the staff who really make you feel welcome. I spend a lot of my working week in hotels and have paid a lot more money for a room/food which does not have the same quality as this hotel.

Great hotel
Really enjoyed our one night stay on our way to Northumberland. Wish we could have stayed longer. Lovely room . Very clean and quiet. Staff were brilliant. It was quiz night in the bar and we felt very welcome. The food in the restaurant was lovely and large portions. Breakfast was very tasty. Would defiantly stay again if possible and recommend to friends

This place is a hidden gem, it is off the main road but worth the trip. Staff very friendly and rooms were spotless. Great menu and welcoming pub atmosphere.

Comfortable accommodation with an excellent and various menu
A well-appointed hotel with unfailingly welcoming and helpful staff and comfortable, moderate-sized and well-equipped rooms in a single-storey annexe.
The restaurant has an astonishingly wide range of appetising meals, all well-presented, and promptly served.
For some visitors staying overnight in rooms facing onto the car-park there may be noise as guests leave, and the constant sound of the large dual-carriage-way just below the hotel is surprisingly pervasive. For all but the highly noise-conscious an excellent stop or base for exploring the area.

Pleasantly suprised
Booked this hotel for an overnight stay before son's graduation ceremony in Durham as all Durham hotels were booked up. Had absolutely no expectations and heart was sinking as drove down the lane but....what a lovely place to stay. The staff were welcoming, warm and friendly, very obliging in providing very early morning breakfast. The room was very comfortable with a lovely big shower. Although right next to the A1 we slept well and were not aware of any road noise.
Highly recommend if you need an overnight stay close to Newcastle or Durham or if travelling.North/South

Stayed here for 6 nights. Excellent location just of the A1. Only had main courses as portions are large. Excellent value for money. Staff are all very friendly. Would stay here again if in the area.
