Response from Hillrise Guest House:
Thank you for your review, we will comment on the location. We are less than 15 minutes by bus to the city centre and for those visiting the University buildings on the south side of the city we are only 10 minutes away. For guests wishing to use the motorway we are only about 200 metres from Junction 61 of the A1(M). A lot of our guests appreciate the semi rural aspect of our location. It all depends on what you want and where you are going.

Helpful owner
Dislikes:
Yes the TVs are mounted high up. It is bad for the eyes and the screen is to small. Needs a modern TV on the counter level as the Travelodges have.
Response from Hillrise Guest House:
Thank you for your review, Though we think you are rather harsh, because of your preference for a quiet room we gave you a triple room ensuite though you only paid for a single standard. We are redecorating and upgrading the the TV's as quickly as we can. That room will be done as soon as time permits.

Response from Hillrise Guest House:
Thanks for your review and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Since moving here 10 months ago we have redecorated some of the rooms, unfortunately Vic the one you had was not one of them, it will be done as soon as we can but it is a bit of a vicious circle we can't rent out the room while it's being decorated and we need the income to pay for the decoration. The intention is to have recdecorated all the rooms by next year. Look forward to seeing you again.

"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.
