This was the most astonishing place to spend several nights! The castle was amazing and our room with huge wooden trusses was brilliant! You have to be aware of stairs & make sure you can get your luggage up flights of stairs. It was just lovely and the porters were so friendly and shared great stories about the students and history of the castle. This was our favorite place we stayed by far! The breakfast is served i the great hall with huge portraits of the Deans of the College gracing the walls--Harry Potterish for me--making the experience even more fun. The Durham University library had a marvelous exhibit about the Magna Carta and Durham Cathedral is historically fascinating & worth the price of the tour! We were thrilled to be here!

for me it was an absolute privilege to have stayed in Durham Castle. From the second I put my foot over the threshold, the cheerful Gateman had a really cheerful greeting for me (even though I was early) The accommodation was spotless and breakfast time was wonderful. The girls serving breakfast were helpful and friendly. The food was perfect and the great hall was outstanding.
I still cannot believe the experience.
I was actually given a conducted tour free of charge. all that history. I met some very interesti g people. Thank you to everybody that helped make this holiday the best ever.

The hospitality - friendly - loving spirit encountered while being a guest in your magnificent City and University; based on the long history of the comradeship of the mining communities cannot be expressed in written scripts. Amazing room and service including the HEARTY breakfast. Many thanks from the heart. Shall be recommending your place to friends and comrades via spoken word and digital media. Please could your amazing-selves email if the same room is available during the summer recces. Would like to come again before the students return to resume their studies. Thanking all the staff from the depth of the soul-heart-mind. Attended the Sunday Service at the Cathedral and prayed for the well being for the peoples of Durham. ASANTE SANA (thanks in Swahili).
