Beautiful house, stylishly and comfortably furnished. Like a home from home but better, just the treat a guest needs! Just a short walk from the coach/ train stations and with easy parking available. Hardly any distance to the cathedral, theatre and shops on foot either. Andy and Jill, what a lovely couple, perfect hosts who provided everything that we needed.... More

Stayed here last night while visiting family in the area and loved it. Andy and Jill are lovely and our room was beautiful. I woke up to an amazing view from the window of Durham and its magnificent cathedral which made me smile then we went down to breakfast which was legendary. There was a vast choice of food rarely...

This B and B, only 5 minutes walk from Durham Railway Station is an absolute gem. It has bags of character and from the minute you arrive the owners, Andy and Jill make you extremely welcome. I had a superb room on the ground floor which is kitted out eith everything that you could need from every kind of toiletry,... More

Stayed for 2 nights in November, in a very comfortable double room. We received a warm welcome on arrival with a pot of tea and cake. Breakfasts were excellent. Good wi fi. - on street parking courtesy of free timed discs. 10 minute walk to City Centre. Easy to see why this is rated No. 1 in Durham.

Despite having bit of trouble finding the place with our GPS being most unhelpful, we eventually arrived to a warm welcoming cup of tea and coffee having been shown our room which was truly lovely with a view over the garden and across the river. A beautifully appointed room which was very comfortable. We really appreciated the opportunity to be... More

The Victorian Town House is a lovely property, within easy walking distance of the railway station and the town center, Cathedral, etc. Since our train was arriving earlier that the standard check-in time, we asked if there were any luggage storage locations where we could put our bags so we wouldn't be encumbered as we toured the town. Jill graciously... More

I spent 3 nights in the Flambard room at this stylish B&B in a leafy and attractive part of Durham. The room was decorated to a very high standard, very clean and comfortable, with a comfy bed, lovely toiletries and a lovely view of the cathedral and the park opposite. Breakfast was served in a bright and attractive room and... More

We stayed for two nights at The Victorian Town House occupying a family room and my parents stayed in the double room. The accommodation was very comfortable, warm and attractive. It was spotlessly clean throughout. We had everything we needed, Jill and Andy were welcoming and attentive. We were spoilt with tea and cakes when we arrived which was lovely.... More

My wife and I stayed at this B&B a couple of weeks ago. Very welcoming hosts, Jill and Andy. Very knowledgeable of the Durham area. Room was big and stylish. The breakfast was amazing. I would Definitely recommend the Black Pudding stack. Free Wifi was useful and the TV had a built in DVD player. Can't wait to go back.

Felt rather processed than welcomed here. The Langley Room is quite compact and faces right on the car park. It has a very annoying automatic light in the window-less bathroom, guaranteed to wake up your single bed mate. Breakfast was good. Bit far from the city centre in my opinion but I don't know York that well. Would only return... More
