"Nice stay on my way from Scotland back home to the airport"
Stayed for one night during my drive from Scotland to Manchester Airport. Good location for motorists close to the Durham South exit of the A1(M) and good bus locations to Durham town. Lovely couple with a dog - always good for a chat. I had a large triple room with en-suite bath, desk for working and TV. Good sleep, although people with strong ears should ask for one of the rooms not located at the street-side part of the house to avoid traffic noise in the mornings. Read less

Thank you Markus for your review. We are pleased you found our Guest house so appealing. The road noise is something we are aware of and are considering options. The room is already double glazed, Triple glazing may be an option.

"Superb place to stay either long or short term just outside Durham"
Was with John and Jackie for 30 nights due to house refurbishment so got to see them in action for quite a time. Always very pleasant, helpful and in fact there was nothing that was too much trouble. Breakfast was excellent, set you up for the day, again nothing too much trouble. Read less
Likes:
The location was ideal, just outside Durham and if you have no transport the buses literally stop just outside the house.
Dislikes:
Having to leave.... That said I arrived a stranger and have made good friends with the hosts which is a bonus as I am local but they were just as friendly with all their guests who came to stay.
Response from Hillrise Guest House:
Thank you Mary for such a glowing report, with such a long stay you had plenty of time to find faults and you didn't we are so pleased. Look forward to seeing you again soon.

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.
