Very polite and friendly staff on arrival. My room was outside in the courtyard. Room was clean but a bit dated, shower over the bath not ideal but ok. Comfortable stay good night sleep. Breakfast was ok. Would stay again.

It's quite a way but you can see where Kynryn takes place from the hotel on a lovely walk down the hill towards the castle and Bishop Auckland town centre. It's only as far as the entrance to Kynryn is on the far side.
