        The Garden House Inn is a lovely, friendly traditional pub and is a very popular eating place with the locals. We stayed there on a Tuesday and Wednesday night, and both nights the bar was full of diners, which is very unusual midweek these days. Our room was lovely and comfortable and spotlessly clean. The staff were out of this world, efficient and friendly, and just couldn't do enough for you. We ate in the hotel both nights of our stay and the food was lovely and fantastic value for money, with a set menu available at £10 for two courses or £13 for three. The hotel is just over 5 minutes walk from the centre of Durham. We are thinking of going back there later in the year and will most definitely stay at the Garden House Inn again,

        The hotel was small and friendly, the bar downstairs was very warm and there was a relaxed friendly atmosphere. The rooms were very nicely decorated and were very clean and comfortable as was the bathroom- it was spotless. (A little shelf added to put your toothbrush and cosmetics would be perfect) I would recommed this hotel to couples and for business reasons. Parking was easy and the evening meal we had was very good. Well cooked, home made and reasonably priced. Breakfast is continental style and this was presented well and you could help yourself to what ever you wanted with the host being on-hand for anything which might have been missing. I went to my meeting well fed and well rested.

        There wasn't anything really to dis-like. I was happy with my choice of accommodation.

        Fantastic hospitality, coupled with the superb food served at incredibly affordable prices. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff we met - everything was explained in advance eg how the heating worked, availability of fresh milk, directions to the city. We would be prepared to travel many a mile to sample the food again, and to drink in the very welcoming bar (with open fires and a good selection of real ales). We cannot recommend the Garden House Inn highly enough. The chef deserves a special mention for the range, variety and excellent quality of the food.

        good location, friendly helpful staff, good bar area, wide choice of beers, decent food, overall an excellent place to stay

        although advertised as providing breakfast there was no mention of it being continental only- i would have preferred a cooked english breakfast.

        Very Friendly staff , good food and pleasant rooms , reasonable city location with a short walk or bus trip into the city . Free parking at the Inn

        The rooms would benefit from a little more attention to detail . Small details like no shelf above the wash basin , no bin in the bathroom , slikgfhtly untidy corridor/stair access to the room from the Inn

        was a nice little place

        the staff were friendly, the room was well equipped and clean, the bed comfortable, the food was enjoyable for both supper and the continental breakfast good and nicely presented

        the deco of the bar/restaurant, not particularly relaxing, tables too small

      • Older travelers

        The location. It is a pleasant 15 minute walk into Durham centre and if you don't want to do this there are ample bus's stopping rigtht outside the premises

        It is simply over priced for what is basically a room over a pub. Durham is short of well priced hotel accommodation and the Garden appear to taking full advantage of this.

      • Family with children
        10.0

        The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The food was excellent, the atmosphere warm and relaxed and despite being a pub not noisy. It's location was very convenient for the city centre, less than 10 min walk, there was off road parking, if need to get trains the station was just before the city centre as you walked in and buses passed by very regularly. We would be more than happy to reccomend The Garden House as a B&B to stay at for anyone going to visit Durham and as our daughter has just started studying at the University, will be booking rooms there again in the future.

        We found nothing to complain or dislike about the The Garden House.
