8/10 Very good

Very good potential but disappointing
This is a lovely building the greeting was really good- staff were excellent throughout. The room we had was very large and spacious but would have benefited from some heating being on as it was quite cold when we arrived and very cold by bedtime. The bathroom was also large but the over-bath shower was very dated and should be replaced. This does not seem to be too high an expectation giving the cost of a one night stay. Dinner was not as good as expected- menu seems good but food presented just didn’t quite meet expectations. Maybe trying too hard, doing something a little simpler better would be better. We pre-ordered breakfast on arrival and it was delivered to our room at the agreed time- but was a little meagre- one slice of toast each and small serving of other items. With some minor changes this could be an excellent hotel.

lovely old building
Very charming, homey, and historical. We paid extra and got the "bridal suite" with the 4 poster bed. It had a HUGE bathroom. Not sure it was worth the extra cost but very nice.

A wonderful find
A wonderful find. Hospitality was superb and the food (dinner and breakfast) were of a very high standard. Very tasty and excellently presented. Durn House is tastefully decorated and our room was extremely well appointed. Only slight disappointment was the shower which was a little temperamental. That said we would have been happy to stay for longer as we were so well looked after.
