My husband and I stayed for one night at the Town House, having got quite a reasonable deal via Laterooms. In general we had a very pleasant stay but my impression was that this hotel falls just a shade short of fulfilling its promise. It has been quite luxuriously decorated and the ambience throughout was great, however looking closely a... More

I stayed here with my partner whilst at my works Christmas night out in Durham. The room was fantastic with a really comfortable bed. The breakfast the next morning was also top notch. Located within walking distance of all the good restaurants and bars. Well worth a visit.

Fantastic hotel....Fantastic staff....Fantastic location....exquisite food The decor of this hotel is so tasteful, and has a great ambiance. A nice touch was chocolates in the room, these little touches make all the difference. If you planning a trip to Durham, try the Town House.

We were greeted with a smile and shown to our table by professional and courteous staff. We were then treated to a sumptuous display of sandwiches and a cake stand of tempting scones, cakes and pastries, as well as unlimited... More

Had Sunday lunch with my family none of us had ever been but I can say none of us were disappointed. At £12.50 some may say it's pricey however don't judge until you've tried it. They have an early bird menu that seems like cracking value so that will be the next thing we try.

The glossy pictures are just that......... First impressions were promising.... However this hotel did not deliver. We stayed in the garden lodge. This is what greeted us....... Shabby, broken blinds at the doors and windows, a musty smell, grubby shag pile rug (god knows what was lurking underneath), cheap flat pillows on bed (in a hotel you expect a beautiful... More

Staff were pleasant and friendly. We only are breakfast at the hotel which was ample and service was very quick. Only downside was that parking is 50p per half... More

Quirky individual rooms with attention to detail and fab bathrooms with Moulton Brown products. Well located with views of Durham cathedral. Food excellent & friendly service. Lovely to stay somewhere different to the standard corporate type hotel. Would stay again
