It is not so much the eccentric taste of the owners, and not even the joke of the shower which makes you choose between a trickle of scalding hot water or gushes of cold; the worst part was the owners' cantankerous attitude that was almost comic, especially in the context of the hospitality industry. At the end of our stay... More

Had a great stay here the other month. Accomodation was lovely and exactly what me and my partner were wanting for our stay in Durham. Would highly recommend it to anyone. We are looking to return as soon as possible!!

Four of us stayed here in May 2012. The owners were friendly and welcoming and the location was, as we had hoped, very well placed for the centre of the City. Our room was pretty clean and the beds were comfortable but, being at the front, we got the benefit of City background noise - not the owners' fault, but... More

The decorations are very individual to the owner but everywhere was clean and Bright. I was really surprised not to have a tea and coffee tray (it has been mentioned in most of the reviews and I would have thought it was essential these days) but when I explained I liked a cuppa last thing at night and before breakfast...

We stayed at this place in March 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Double room at the back of the building was large and was well appointed, lots of storage, great bed and sofa. View through the trees to the cathedral! Only thing missing from the room was tea/coffee making facilities. The owner clearly put a lot of effort into the... More

I found the accomodation itself quite nice and the location is very good. It is true there are no tea/coffee making facilities (which is unusual for a place of this claimed standard). Breakfast next door was nice enough, but I found the service a teeny bit brusque. Almost all of my interactions (e-mail/telephone/in person) with the proprietors were chaotic -... More

The Georgian Town House is conveniently situated in the city centre, close to the railway station in a pleasant street. The proprietors also run the attached cafe. I was only staying for one night and to be honest I was pleased at that. I found the accomodation not quite what I expected from the website, in fact quite different. It... More
