Riverside Retreat is a luxurious apartment a real hidden gem and we had a wonderful stay. We were warmly welcomed by James after a long drive from Epsom Surrey and shown to our allocated parking space in the gated development – such a major plus in any city centre! The apartment is luxurious; a great deal of thought has been put into Riverside Retreat from the toiletries in the bathroom to the selection of coffees on offer! The well-stocked hamper was a delight and had something for everyone, as was the surprise treat in the fridge! The purpose of our trip was to attend Durham University’s open day and James in his welcome letter had very kindly supplied us with a map of the university, which was a lovely touch and proved to be a very helpful gesture! Wonderful host, wonderful apartment would highly recommend.
