"Would not recommend this B&B!"
Terriable room..beds not even attached to the headboard so your head & pillow was in the gap...plus the pillows were so thin even using two did not help; we had a terrible night. Bathroom shower had mold around it. I really think the host should spend a night in the room we had to see just how unpleasant it is..now, I do have to say, the breakfast was delicous. We were assigned the breakfast arrival time at 8:45 am...however, the host was upset we arrived at that time as the other guests had not finished their breakfast's......strange sutuation. I hate to give A negative review but I must say after spending $138 US dollars, I expected not to have such issues.

"Clean, luxurious room, great welcome."
Arranged early drop-off of luggage before check-in. Host Martin was wonderful. Room was very clean with fantastic bed and amenities. Not in center of town but easy to get there. Very quiet, being next to a pub no problem at all, didn't hear a peep.

"Cozy B&B"
The hosts were very helpful, serving a hot and large breakfast. The room was cozy, a home away from home. One comment was the floor was very slippery, take car stepping out of the shower as there is a high ledge.

"Friendly comfortable place to stay"
Martin was an informative and helpful host. Breakfast was ample, coffee very good. Room clean. Hotel.com needs to provide clearer instructions and map to locate the B&B. Wifi was weak and only partially functional. Suitcase stand(s) would have been helpful.

"A decent option if staying in Durham"
Moor End is located in a residential/commercial neighborhood outside of Durham. The rooms are small but very clean and comfortable. Bathrooms so tiny that I can't stand up in them are never a great deal of fun so if you are tall, be warned! Breakfasts are very good, hosts are amenable, parking is very convenient. Besides the small, low-ceiling rooms the biggest drawback is that the property is not within walking distance of anything. Now, the drive to Durham is not difficult but parking is expensive in town and it would have been nice to stay somewhere that is was possible to have a few drinks at dinner then walk back to your room. Overall, this is a reasonably decent property.

"Good value . Homely. Worth the price we paid."
We wanted a place to stay near to Durham city centre. Moor End is just less than 2 miles from Durham . There was sufficient parking around the back of the house . Our car was safe there and we caught bus . Bus stops are very close to B&B . Just a 10 minute ride. We spent most of our time in the city.We only used MoorEnd to sleep for one night and have breakfast . Felt homely. Rooms very warm. Martin the proprietrer was helpful, friendly. We paid at lower price range compared to others but were not disappointed . Lovely breakfast . Would use again

We are non-drivers. We just needed somewhere to stay overnight on a Saturday in November, so that we could meet up in Durham city with our student godson. Our room was clean and comfortable, our host was friendly and helpful, and we had a good quality (ie good food well cooked - nothing cheapskate!), nicely presented breakfast in a relaxed atmosphere.

My partner and I spent three nights at Moor End. We were made welcome by Debbie and Martin and had a spacious room on the top floor with ensuite shower room and very comfortable bed. There was a wide choice at breakfast, and everything was of the highest quality and beautifully prepared. We will definitely go back to Moor End B&B on our next visit to Durham.

Great choice at breakfast, generous portions and beautifully booked. We received very helpful advice on where to eat on the Sunday evening and also on parking within Durham City Centre. We'd definitely stay here again when visited Durham. Thank you.

This was a perfect experience in every way. The room was incredibly comfortable, with a lovely bathroom and beautiful breakfast, and the location was very central with easy parking, and public transport nearby if required. We were treated to wonderful service, particularly because we had booked a night that our hosts had thought they had blocked out, and they STILL came back from their night out at the movies and looked after us!! Couldn't recommend this place more!!

"All round fantastic"
As soon as we walked it we received a very warm welcome and everything explained to us about where we could get food etc. I was impressed with the beautiful decor of the dining room and I was not disappointed with our room. It was the nicest room we have stayed in for a long time and the attention to detail was great. I was also impressed with the information folder in the room as it had a lot of places to see in, maps and all about the bed and breakfast which these days is a bonus. Very comfortable and clean. Our room was on the front on the road side but as in previous reviews of the road noise this is no longer the case as they have had new windows put in recently and you can have a very peaceful nights sleep. The breakfast in the morning was great and there were a number of choices. A great place to stay very close to Durham and a short walk to a restaurant for a lovely meal in the evening. Overall an excellent place to stay and the only thing wrong was that our stay there was not long enough but we are sure we will be going back soon to see Durham again and this will be our first choice of accommodation for certain.

"Excellence in every aspect of my stay!"
04/18/16 Isobel M Farnham, United Kingdom
The guest house was fantastic, lots of beautiful internal features in keeping with the property's age. The owner, Martin was an excellent and friendly host who was very keen to ensure that my stay at the Moor End was well catered for. The Room had lovely features, lots of nice touches, including a chocolate left on the bed, plenty refreshments and toiletries. The room was large and airy, the bed was very comfortable. I have a heart complaint and had come out of hospital the previous day, and had a long journey from Farnham up to Durham I was not only able to stay at this hotel stress free, I felt extremely rested. The breakfast was delicious and cooked to perfection - I opted for the vegetarian option. I have stayed in many hotels, some 4 star and to date this was the best cooked breakfast I have had, it arrived at the table piping hot - first for me! I would highly recommend this Guest House for your stay!

Lovely B and B, warm welcome from Martin on arrival and charming room, full of character on the top floor. Comfortable and very clean, my only criticism would be the early breakfasts! The latest we could book was 845, which is much too early in my opinion when you are on holiday!

It was easy to find - being on a main road next to a pub. Martin was welcoming from the off and was very helpful with anything we needed. Family room was right at the top of the house, plenty of space and roomy en-suite too. The single bed was on the other side of a wall partition which gave privacy for our teenager with out us having to have another room. Breakfast was lovely - really flexible menu and freshly cooked. Bus into Durham was easy and frequent (thanks Martin for the info). Parking - tho not available at Moorend was available in residential streets behind. Pub next door did great foor - steak night Tuesday - but be aware it's kitchen is not open Monday!

Fantastic breakfasts with good quality ingredients and plenty of choice! I stayed in a double en-suite room which was comfortable, very spacious and clean.

01/03/16 69Penny Melbourne, Australia
We stayed in the family room which was clean and relatively comfortable. Breakfast was as one would expect in a B and B. Service was welcoming. A point to note is that the heating does go off during the day until 3.30pm. This is fine but not when cold. All in all Moor End is a good base but offers nothing out of the ordinary. If you have difficulties with mobility, this is not for you.

This is a very nice B&B. Clean, spacious room, with a really outstanding breakfast: good ingredients and plenty of tea and coffee. Nothing too much trouble. There is parking adjoining the pub car park next door which, once you work it out, is fine. Nearby pub serves very good food. On a visit to our daughter at Durham University, this was what we needed. Wifi was razor sharp.
