  • "We have stayed in these beautiful apartments before and they provide luxurious facilities however, this time we found that the compartment for milk on the fridge door had been broken off and not replaced and the bottle cooler didn't work, also the pillow protectors on the bed were stained."

    Hope this can be rectified for future guests! Would also like to add that the family above us were really noisy, kids running about and furniture been moved constantly until 11pm on a night. Maybe a sign could be displayed asking guests to be considerate to guests that are below. On the whole a lovely stay in a beautiful apartment

    Thank you for your feedback, admittedly we have had a recurring issue with guests overloading the compartments in the fridge door and this is something that we have replaced a few times. The latest break means that we now have to find a fridge door replacement, having only just replaced the fridge with a brand new unit this year. Upon electrical inspection and a recent PAT test in September, the wine cooler is working as it should so we can only apologise for what may have been an electrical glitch during your stay. Our sincere apologies for the stains on the pillow protectors, this is unacceptable and is something that we will bring up to our cleaners. We ask that any issues are reported to us upon arrival so we have the opportunity to resolve them. In this case we would have provided new pillow protectors. We are very sorry to hear about the noise disturbances, although this is highlighted in our guest information folder and also the housekeeping notice. We also ask that noise complaints are reported to us so that they can be dealt with accordingly. We're glad that you enjoyed your stay overall and hope to welcome you back in the future.

  • "Beautiful apartment, very stylish and comfortable."

    Would have liked a welcome pack and maybe a manual for appliances but a quick phone call to owners and our questions were answered. Would recommend to friends and family.

  • "An outstanding apartment, beautifully renovated and well equipped."

    Our cook loved the kitchen but suggested a large pot for cooking and a larger frypan would be good along with an extra tea towel. We would be delighted to stay here again if we come this way.

  • "The property was very clean and spacious and the beds comfortable and we enjoyed our stay."

    We had everything we needed. Minor improvements could be the addition of some coat hooks/a coat stand near the door or in the kitchen and a pizza wheel. Lovely apartment.

  • "It's lovely, comfortable apartment we enjoyed our stay there."

    Perhaps user guides for the washing machine & TV would be useful, although we did manage to figure it out. It would also be useful to have any recommendations for restaurants, pubs or take aways. We went to the Cross Keys in East gate & enjoyed the food we had, they do a gluten free menu.

    Everything was clean and in working order. It felt like a real treat to stay there. Stanhope is a friendly little place with some amazing walks around.

    The young girl that helped us could not have handled it any better. The appartment has been furnished to a high degree, will definitely go back next year.

  • "Beautiful high quality apartment right in centre of Stanhope."

    Very comfortable, lovely kitchen, bathrooms etc. Great TV with Netflix. Only minor negative would be a little more crockery as they needed washing every time they were used so the dishwasher became pointless.

    Reviewed by Dean4.1Sep 2022

  • "This is a swish apartment, convenient, well-appointed and beautifully cleaned and presented."

    We happened to bump into the property managers and mentioned a couple of issues: slow-draining shower, hooks needed for a kitchen towel and tea towel. They responded positively to our encouraging feedback. On paper, parking may be a problem (and may be in busier summer times) but we found a place right in the nearby side street, where the car stayed for the duration whilst we set off walking and using the bus. Marvellous.

    The instructions were all accurate. Someone has put thought into the small things. The shoe store in the hallway and the easy to adjust central heating were particularly useful features. We will definitely recommend it to others and will probably return ourselves.

    Such a nice place and kitchen is high quality and well equipped. Only slight criticism is some areas - e.g. headboard could do with a good dust.

  • "Apartment was clean, well equipped and comfortable."

    It was easy to park on the street nearby every day. A short walk from a CoOp and a good bakery. Little touches like Prosecco and chocolates on arrival, a selection of games and a gaming device and a DVD player in the bedroom were appreciated. As a family of 5 we use a lot of bowls and mugs, it would be helpful to have a few more than 6 of each so we don't have to put the dishwasher on quite so often, but not a big issue. Decor, towels, bed linen were all good and beds comfortable, if a bit soft. Thank you for a good break.

    The apartment was easy to find & access, beautifully done (everything was so shiny!) & very spacious. This was particularly good for us on this visit as the weather on one day was shocking & we had to spend more time inside than we expected. We were a group of 4 adults, a 4 yr old & a crawling baby and there was plenty of room for us all without feeling cramped (and for us to dry our clothes after a particularly wet walk). Highly recommended.

Queens Apartments

A stone-built, former public house dating back to the 1800s, The Queens Apartments have been converted into three stunning, self-catering apartments. These three tastefully-appointed apartments are ideally situated in the centre of the bustling village of Stanhope in Weardale. Exuding luxury throughout, each apartment has been individually styled to provide all the comforts you could possibly want from your Durham holiday. All have contemporary kitchens with granite worktops and high-gloss units, the beautifully-fitted bathrooms twinkle temptingly and the living areas all have sumptuous sofas to melt into after a delicious home-cooked meal. After a long day out walking or cycling, your lavishly furnished bedrooms await you with pillow soft beds, fresh linen and fluffy throws. The penthouse apartment has its own private balcony whilst all guests share a rear patio with furniture and a beautiful arched passageway. Wonderful walks can be enjoyed from these apartments, with the Weardale Way passing through the town, or why not take a wander along the high street to the stepping stones and cross the River Wear, from there a rather challenging incline will take you to the surrounding moorland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the second largest in England and Wales, boasting great scenery and wildlife? A short drive will take you to Barnard Castle, Durham, Corbridge, The Bowes Museum, High Force and Rokeby Hall, all easily reached for a day’s outing. With so much to see and do in the area, these apartments are the perfect place for friends and family to get together for a celebration or a countryside break.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.
