Good WIFI included in the price, delicious breakfast and easy access to the centre of town approximately five to ten minutes by foot. We will... More

Located in a quiet street, warm welcome was provided. We enjoyed the designer room and bathroom. The breakfast can easily been described as a royal breakfast! Only a few minutes walk from the centre. Would easily recommend this place.

We very much enjoyed our short stay at Andy and Jill's elegant town house in Durham. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated, and our en suite bedroom was roomy and warm. Easy walking from the Cathedral and railway station. Would gladly come back.

Friendly but unobtrusive welcome. Beautiful room- exemplary cleanliness. very comfortable. We could only stay a night- we would be happy to stay a week. Perfectly cooked breakfast. The cook is a master (mistress?) of the egg! Only 10 min walk from the Abbey. The best place to stay.

Had a lovely two night stay at The Victorian Town House over the weekend. Ideally located for the centre of Durham - especially for those arriving by train! Lovely room, excellent breakfast - with lots of choice - and very pleasant folk. Just what you want from a B&B!
