General Description

Restaurant and Rooms. The Seven Stars Inn, dating from 1724, is a traditional English country Inn located on the edge of picturesque Shincliffe village, only one and a half miles from the centre of Durham city and Durham University. We are ideally placed for that short or long break visiting the wonderful cathedral city of Durham and experiencing the sights and sounds of North East England, a region that is steeped in culture and history. Staying at the Seven Stars is all about relaxing and enjoying great freshly prepared food using the best seasonal local produce along with fine wines from our hand picked list or one of our real ales. The Inn offers 8 en-suite bedrooms all with TV, tea and coffee making facilities and free wireless internet access. Food is served daily from 12:00pm until 2:30pm and 6:00pm until 9:00pm (8:00pm on Sundays). Breakfast is served between 7:00am and 9:00am Monday to Saturday and 8:00am until 9:30am on Saturdays and Sundays. The bar is open until 11:00pm Monday to Saturday and until 10:30 on Sundays. Please note that we are unable to take bookings from guests wishing to attend late night functions requiring access to bedrooms after midnight. Guests arriving back in the small hours of the morning are not compatible with regular guests who value the Inn for its peaceful ambiance. Last check in time is 22:00. During the winter months the Inn closes between 15:00 and 17:30. If you intend to arrive during this time, please call ahead to ensure a member of staff is available to check you in. WI-FI is intended for e-mail and basic browsing use only. Daily usage limits apply. We do not guarantee service availability.

This hotel was warm and welcoming, with a nice bar. The bedroom and bathroom were very small but impressively clean. The food in the restaurant was first rate, but the service was a little slow. Breakfast was excellent

The staff were friendly and helpful, we had been recommended to eat there but the restaurant was fully booked (it was a Saturday evening) so we went elsewhere.The room was smaller than we would have hoped and not brilliantly sound proofed, though external road noise and noise from the pub itself was minimal. The en suite was noisy and quite small but adequate.

Pleasant location about 2 miles from Durham, pub has a good choice of hand pulled beer. I ate in pub, food was good quality but perhaps a touch expensive and a limited choice eg £9.95 for fish and chips, there was a restaurant with a wider choice but higher prices.There is free wireless but signal varied, the mobile phone signal was weak.Room was very good and had freeview tv.Would definately stay again, good value at £45.

The customer service was excellent and the food sublime. Only issue is the cooking smells from kitchen has well an truly entered my room for the whole stay and my clothes smelled like I was in the kitceh all day. I believe this is only for rooms down the end of the hotel above the restaurant. Apart fomr that though, really enjoyed the place.

A Very Enjoyable BreakOur stay at the Seven Stars was enjoyable from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent, previous comments from another review about not being gourmet just shows that you can not please some people, they would probably find fault with the Ritz! The locals are also friendly, the waiter suggested on our first night that we join in the pub quiz later that evening, we did and had great time. Bar snacks (chips, pork scratchings etc.) were brought out for those in the bar. The hotel is clean and comfortable. Parking on the street is not a problem, we arrived on a Bank Holiday and had no trouble finding a space for the car. We will definitely return to the Severn Stars again.

Good Accomodation, not late night policyThis is a nice place to stay and the food is excellent, although I didn't eat here this time.The only problem is that the pub closes at 11pm and so do the doors, so if you are going out in town you have to be back quite early. For this reason only I wouldn't stay here again.

Fantastic find! Superb quality food served with courteous attentive staff. Lovely quiet village location, although it doesnt have a car par there is ample on street car parking. Only problem is finding the place as Shincliffe isnt very well signposted. Hasnt been on Late Rooms site for long so more than happy to be first to feedback. Will definately visit again!

This is a really nice place to stay. The only thing missing was a hair dryer in the room, so if you're going, take your own.The dinner and breakfast were both excellent. I would definitely stay there again.

Very businesslike and yet friendly and welcoming. The food is very very good and the menu varied. Little touches like bringing drinks to your table in the bar were appreciated. Staff were friendly and 'smiley'. The room was spotless. Thanks a lot

Very good food, rooms were great and there was no real noise effects from the bar in the rooms. I'd recommend staying here to anyone needing to stay in the area.

The bathroom was the smallest bathroom we have ever seen, and the toilet mascerator went off during the night for no reason. But overall the room was worth what we paid for it. We would stay again.
