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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My room was spacious yet cozy, with a fireplace and window seat, perfect for reading. The hosts are friendly and helpful but not the least intrusive. The only drawback is the location, about 2 miles from Durham city center, but it's easy to get back and forth by bus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Brilliant service - highly recommended"
Staff very friendly. Comfortable beds. Excellent breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great overnight stay. The room was good-sized and the bed was very comfortable. We had a room at the front of the B&B but were not troubled by road noise at all. 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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A brilliant experience!"
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!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A visit to Durham"
Excellent guest house. Comfortable and convenient. The only snag was standing to use the toilet with a sloped roof and seat that would not stay up.Genuine Expedia guest review
Friendly, clean B&B with good breakfasts. Well located for Durham, Beamish and other attractions in the North East.Genuine Expedia guest review
very good rooms and service, near to the bus stops for the city, and motorway just so easy for all that you could want. would deffinately use this guest house again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ideal for couples"
Nice, clean, quirky, quality. Only a stone throw (£5 taxi) from city centre. My wife loved the place and she's fussy.Genuine Expedia guest review
This is a place with character, and we enjoyed it.Genuine Expedia guest review
This B&B was located in an area that was not within walking distance of major attractions and eating establishments but was just a short drive to same.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stay Anywhere But Here!!"
Extremely rude owner. We checked in at 9:17pmGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"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.

Really enjoyed the room and all the attention to details in the decorating. A little further from the city center than expected but easily accessible by bus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lovely warm reception on a cold evening, spacious, beautifully decorated room, warm comfy bed. Perfect breakfast, anything you want is offered. The thing I liked most was that I didn't feel like I was staying in someone's spare room as is often the case in b&bs. I've stayed at the bannatyne hotel around the corner previously and would never go back […] as long as there is a room available here Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good position for catching bus."
Very good, friendly hosts, breakfast good, good position for catching bus. Just a mention, could do with a radiator in bathroom in No' 3 room, but apart from that, very good all round.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Easy to find"
Stayed here one Friday night. Really easy to find just off the A1. Room was a little small with electric flush on-suite but very adequate for a night. Not a lot nearby but had a nice meal at the Table Table (10 minute walk). Parking was good at the rear and breakfast was really nice. Host was very friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Home from home"
Lovely Hotel and staff. Comfortable and clean room and spotless bathroom. Great breakfast. Would book again if available and would highly recommend it.Genuine Expedia guest review

"A convenient overnight stay"
Everything clean, comfortable and efficient. Loved the stripped pine and bare wood decor, but spoiled by so much clutter of decorations and so many hearts; not a place to stay if single, male, or going through a bad time in a relationship! Very convenient for buses into centre.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Moor End Guest House Durham"

"Good family room"
This was a lovely place to stay.The owners where very helpful in organising taxis to take us to the Coldplay concert at the Staudium of Light.Comfy beds and good quality duvets were appreciated in the family room.Excellent breakfast too.Would highly recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Character combined with cleanliness."
Would recommend Moor End to anyone wishing to use this B & B as a base for visiting Durham with excellent connections to Newcastle and York. There is a bus stop across the road and £1.40 and 10 minutes will take you past Durham cathedral and into the city bus terminal. Martin and Debbie offer a wide selection of breakfast choices and are very helpful […] with suggestions of sights worth visiting and places to eat. . We found the B & B to be very clean and our room comfortable, our only complaint being that on the top floor with a sloping ceiling headroom was restricted in parts.

"Moor End B & B, Durham"
I really recommend this B & B - beautiful decor, friendly and helpful owners, very comfortable beds, tasty breakfast (choice of cereals, or porridge, fruit juice, choice of eggs for the cooked breakfast, yoghurt and fresh fruit salad..... The B & B is on a busy main road and parking is in the nearby pub's car park. It is not in the centre of Durham […] though so you will need to take a bus or car in to the centre.

"Home from home"
We stay in many B&B's and hotels over the course of the year and we have to say this is one of the best we've been to. We stayed for 4 nights and the room was kept very clean and the whole house was beautifully decorated. Each night when we came back we really did feel as though we were coming home. Breakfast was superb. There was lots of choice and […] Martin was very friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Moor End House kan anbefales!"
Moor End House kan anbefales! Stort, koselig, velutstyrt rom, god frokost og hyggelig vertskap. Ulempe at hotellet ligger langt fra Durham sentrum. Det er ganske langt til nærmeste restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Oppholdet var greit nok, men stedet ligger langt fra Durham sentrum. I praksis endte vi opp med å bruke buss og taxi for å komme dit. Omgivelsene er lite hyggelige med mye trafikk. Vi oppdaget ikke noe oppholdsrom utenom egne rom hvor det var åpent og hyggeligå være.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely stay, warm welcome "
My boyfriend and I stayed her for 2 nights in August. We received a very warm welcome and were very pleased with the comfortable room. The breakfast was very nice too. The decor was nice, with pleasant touches. The pub next door has cheap deals too!

Very comfortable and relaxing overnight stay en route to Edinburgh. The house is delightful with lovely finishing touches. Delicious breakfast with the best poached eggs ever! The pub next door has obviously improved both the service and food. Martin was very welcoming and helpful.
"A little haven."
06/10/14 Helen K Coventry, United Kingdom
We needed somewhere to stay in Durham, and this turned out to be " a little gem". We were greeted by Debbie( looking like a film star) and shown our room by Martin. Lots of stairs but then very pleasantly surprised. Our lovely room was more like a bed sit. That is ,very comfortably furnished with comfy bed( plenty covers and pillows). There was a sofa and a chair( in the window which I liked). Television, tea and coffee facilities, en-suite with complimentary toiletries. Although at the top of the building, it was a spacious room and also had a full length mirror. A great breakfast with plenty of choice. Places to eat nearby and a pub next door( where you parked at the end on concrete hard standing). A bus stop across the road to go into Durham( if you don't want to drive). There are plenty of things to do in Durham and round about. Martin and Debbie a very hardworking, friendly couple who run a top notch Bed and Breakfast.
"Comfortable and homely..."
05/28/14 Rachel H Notts
Beds comfortable and the rooms homely furnished. Cole and Mason toiletries (no conditioner though), hair dryer in drawer. Tea/coffee facilities (fresh milk be nice, I didn't ask, more than likely available). Breakfast cooked by Martin is gorgeous and his poached eggs and mushrooms are a favourite of mine. Beauty salon down the road open late most evenings for those wishing to chill (book in advance, always busy). A pizza takeaway, chemist, chip shop, Pizza Hut, KFC, Indian and convenience store within walking distance. Ramside Hotel and Golf Club (1.5 miles and takes about 30 minutes to walk or 5 in the car) has a daily carvery for £9.50 (it's ok, but nothing special) and a Steakhouse, which although a bit expensive has more than satisfied my appetite for good food on more than one occasion. Great location for travelling in and around Durham, Newcastle, Teeside and the Shields. Be back soon.

Just home from a lovely couple of nights at Moor End. Large en-suite room with all facilities. Comfy beds with spotless linen. Ample freshly cooked to order breakfast, nothing too much trouble here! Would we recommend? You bet!! Would we go back? Oh YES!! A great location for visiting the North East. Newcastle only 20 minutes on the train and there is plenty to do within a very short distance.

We had a 5 day stay at moorend guest house in febuary. Debbie and Martin were very good hosts. It was our Anniversary while we were there and they gifted us champagne which I felt was a lovely personal touch. The breakfast was vey substantial and kept us going all day. The double room we had was spacious and warm would highly recommend if you are going to Durham area
"A Home from Home! "
I stayed for one evening whilst on a business trip and found Moor End House exceptional. The rooms are spacious, clean, warm and decorated to a high standard. There is a wide range of choice for breakfast which was delicious together fresh coffee. Martin and Debbie are an absolutely lovely couple and excellent 'hosts' with great local knowledge. I will be definitely staying over again soon, thank you for a lovely experience.
