I dare say that this is the best apartment (at the time of stay) if you are looking for somewhere right smack in the city centre which is new, clean and with modern amenities. It is located right behind the Durham market place and has easy access to the market, castle, cathedral, the hill colleges, supermarkets, pubs, restaurants and shops. We loved that there is a secure sheltered parking lot just on the door step of the apartment.
The apartment was beautifully furnished and a lot of thought was put in by the host to ensure our comfort. James is a warm, friendly, thoughtful and helpful host. He personalised his welcome letter to us and included useful tips and information as well as a thoughtful gift for my son. The welcome hamper was huge and packed with bread, cereal, fruits, cheeses, butter, a selection of jams and spreads, spring water and milk. There was a bottle of Prosecco chilling in the fridge as well a platter of mince tarts, strawberries, grapes and cream. He always responded promptly to our queries. We certain recommend this apartment and hope to be back!
