Dislikes:
None
Response from Hillrise Guest House:
Thank you for the review Jason, it is always good to have you stay. We would add that whille Bowburn its self is limited in facilities there is as well as the Chinese mentioned there is an Indian Restaurant, a Fish and Chip shop and a corner shop. There is also a good bus service running late into the evening taking only 10 to 15 minutes into Durham City centre We just don't want people thinking it is the middle of nowhere.

Likes:
The level of attention paid. From the steps up to the front door (which had a white line painted on the edges for safety) to the twix snacks in my room, really nice touches. Deep pile bedroom carpet
Dislikes:
There was not anything I didn't like about my stay at all but if I was going to be finicky at all I would say the breakfast was quite basic - but still very tasty.
Response from Hillrise Guest House:
Thank you for your review we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay, but sorry you thought Breakfast a little lacking, we have tried adding to the menu but find it is not touched and invariably thrown away. If you would like to suggest some ideas we could try them out. We are always happy go give things a go!

John and Jacqui are really friendly and the accommodation is excellent value. Near to Durham as well. We love the Italian Farmhouse in nearby Coxhoe for evening meals!

Nothing negative, it was all great.

Hillrise is a small friendly-run Guest House offering a very high standard of accommodation and home cooked food with a 3 star registration. There is a homely and intimate feel to the Guest Sitting Room with Living Flame Gas Fire, Colour Television with Freeview and DVD video player together with a selection of DVD's to watch.

Bowburn is well located for visiting the North East's attractions, particularly the historic city of Durham. Durham Cathedral is the greatest Norman building in England, perhaps even in Europe. It is cherished not only for its architecture but also for its incomparable setting. Slightly further afield is Beamish Museum, Britain's favourite open air museum, set in over 300 acres of beautiful countryside, vividly recreates life in the North of England in the early 1800s and 1900s.There is also The Bowes Museum at Barnard Castle, about 30 minutes drive South from the Guest House. A superb museum housed in a custom-made Italian style 19th. Century palazzo.
