Unfortunately, our trip only allowed us one night in Durham. Wish we could have stayed at least one more night at The Victorian Town House. Our room was spacious and elegant. EVERY amenity you would need is in your room....from ironing board and iron....to the high end toiletries in the bath room. Andy was helpful with our bags. Andy brought... More

Andy and Jill run an unusually good B & B. It is conveniently close to Durham centre allowing visitors to easily walk to and from the main sights. A warm welcome with hot tea and homemade cake greets you. Rooms are richly furnished with really large bath sheets. Breakfast deserves the gold award they have received. Andy was really helpful...

Andy couldn't have been more accommodating even prior to us visiting by helping us with directions and where to park. The room had everything and more; from quality soaps and tea making facilities to a wonderfully designed bathroom. The breakfast is quite simply one of the best I've ever had. Definitively superb! Thank you.

I whole heartedly agree with Dawn2908. We also stayed for 3 nights over the Easter weekend. A fabulous B&B, with easy access to Durham city centre. Our room (Flambard) was lovely and an ideal size for two. Breakfast was outstanding, with a good choice of fresh fruit, yoghurt, juice, cereals, croissants etc. The full English breakfast was superb, however the... More

We stayed over the Easter period for three nights, and would not hesitate to recommending the -Victorian Town House, situated on a quiet road but only five-ten minutes stroll into the city. The room (twin) on the ground floor was a good size, clean, tastefully decorated with comfortable beds. Tea and coffee making facilities (including fresh milk and bottles of... More

Very friendly & considerate and it was clear that great care was taken to ensure guests felt welcome and catered for, from the towels on the bed when you arrive, welcome cup of tea and cake, fresh milk for tea-making and toiletries/bath robes to...

I stayed one night in mid-March and have no hesitation recommending the Victorian Town House for longer breaks. The place is very well cared for and my room was nicely proportioned with a comfortable bed and good quality tea and coffee making facilities including fresh milk and bottles of water. It is well located for the railway station and all... More

Stayed for one night while our daughter attended a university open day and overnight stay. The rooms where very clean and tastefully decorated. After showing us to our room, Andy brought us pot of tea and homemade cake. Which was a lovely touch and much appreciated. There was a good choice for breakfast and cooked to order, and the homemade... More
