The Town House is an opulent Grade II-Listed Georgian town house located in Durham’s charming Old Elvet area. The 18th century town house has 11 bespoke bedrooms, each offering a very different experience, including three exclusive rooms in the garden with their own private hot tub. This really is the perfect indulgence in a romantic break right in the heart of the city, with Durham Cathedral and the 11th-century castle within 10 minutes’ walk, should you decide to leave the room.

 We offer a range of delicious options in our restaurant including our made-to-order Afternoon Teas with fresh sandwiches and pastries or truly indulge with our Champagne Afternoon tea with a glass of Jacquart Brut Mosaique Champagne; arrange a private dining experience for your next special occasion; or relax and unwind over breakfast after staying with us in one of our 11 bespoke bedrooms.

“Outstanding Hotel”

‘Just spent the evening with my boyfriend in the garden room. Well where do I start, from the warm welcome we received when we arrived from the manager Allen to the attentive service from waitress Jessica I cannot fault this place. Our room was spacious with all the luxuries you could want. Even better was the private hot tub. Nothing about our stay was disappointing. Thank you to all staff. This hotel is so special, 5 star. Cannot wait to return’ – ‘Bec111345’, TripAdvisor, April 2018
