Bowburn Hall Hotel really is a hidden gem. The hotel itself and grounds are stunning. I've always found the staff to be friendly and helpful. However the main draw for me personally is the food. Ever meal I've eaten here has always made me want to return and try something else of the menu, with the Sunday lunch being a particular highlight. More...

Could not fault the place one bit. I booked on booking.com the day before for £48, normally stay in luxury hotels but this was work who weren’t paying so just needed a bed for the night ||The welcome was excellent, the bar and restaurant quiet, but the team still chatty and attentive. ||I was upgraded and had a stunning room with a copper roll top bath ... yes for £48 ! Could not believe it. ||Didn’t have breakfast but the Duty Manager who checked me out was delightful, chatty and asked how my stay was and wished me a good journey.||I could not fault it, a lot of hotels could learn a lesson or two from the team here. Well done More...

i stayed here on business for one night after a long day worked we decided to go to the bar to unwind, a member of staff called Danielle made us feel especially welcome and had a great sence of humour she's definitely an asset and a very warming character

Bowburn hall was a lovely place to stay, staff were friendly and helpful. Only downside was we had to ring the bell twice after waiting at the reception to check in. ||Bath, shower and toilet were spotless. Overall a wonderful place to stay and I’d love to stay again. More...

Good night with good food music was a bit rubbish but it was ibiza night so that was probably why. The new decor was lovely a big improvement from the last time I was here. Staff were all pleasant and helpful. More...

We had our wedding at Bowburn Hall last month and we could not have asked for a more special day, from the day we booked it the staff have been fabulous to us and couldn’t have been more helpful. The venue on the day was perfect and the food was superb, many thanks to Charlie and his team in particular the wonderful Lucy who we are so proud to say was our master of ceremonies. This place will always be special to us and we can’t wait to keep returning. More...

Nice hotel but food is pub style and not hotel standard. Garden lodges are superb.

Lovely venue, very clean, drinks were a bit pricey at the function I was at but hotels are usually pricey, overheard one lady say she was charged just over £6 for a glass of wine then went to later get another of the same and was charged over £7, seems questionable to me.

We were looking for something a bit different with a feeling of indulgence, without the price tag and that is what we got! Loved the bathroom and copper bath, slept better that I have for weeks! Just a shame we were only there one night. More...

Visited with friends for afternoon tea one Sunday. We found the afternoon tea good value for the quantity of food provided. It would have been nice to have some additional savoury items but for the price it’s still good value and I would return again. More...

We stayed for a wedding and loved the vibe of the place and all the staff were lovely, polite and professional. Despite it being just another wedding to them but they really did go the extra mile. |The room was No20 which was on the second floor without a lift so be aware. It was very lovely decorated and the bathroom was nice and big. The only problem was the water pressure. The shower was very weak which we did report back to the assistant manager and she said she would "look into it" which I really hope they will. A water pump will solve the issues! More...

Staff warm friendly and helpful rooms are lovely and the food is prepared with passion and pride. The location is backing on to a housing estate but there isn’t any noise issues ideally situated for many of County Durham’s points of interest

Third time staying at Bowburn it’s so friendly and cosy with lovely surroundings and only minutes from the A1 M . Considering the excellent breakfast and the cost of a beautiful room for the night it can’t be beaten, highly recommended.

Bowburn Hall is a very convenient place to stay for a visit to Durham. It is a small hotel with friendly staff and good evening meals available in the pub/lounge. Despite being close to the A1 motorway there is no bothersome traffic noise. More...

We had a lovely stay at the Bowburn. The food is excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. Our room was slightly dated but was comfortable and clean, with plenty of facilities. We were woken up one night by the night porter moving tables in the function room but this issue was sorted by the lovely Receptionist once they were informed. Overall a great place and would gladly return. More...
