Welcome to The Town House

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.

Alongside the vibrant cocktail bar, The Town House Restaurant serves locally sourced food, specialising in steaks and seafood. Light lunches are also available and guests can enjoy a drink on the garden terrace.

"Hidden Gem!"


'My husband and I have just left after an overnight stay in this gorgeous little hotel. So easy to miss if you didn’t know it was there! I was in two minds whether to stay here because it is quite pricey but my god it’s worth the money. We stayed in the jardin room with our own hot tub. The room itself is beautiful and staff are so friendly and welcoming. We didn’t eat in the restaurant for dinner but breakfast was fantastic. We got the full English everything was so fresh and tasty. We asked the waitress where the black pudding was from
As it had such a lovely taste and she said it was from Scotland! As we left she gave us two pieces to take home with us!! Nice little touch! Will definitely be back to stay here again at some point!'


A favourite with savvy locals and refined travellers alike, the Town House is a delightful restaurant serving the most delicious steak and seafood, as well as our refreshing cocktails. Based on our customer’s review, the Town House can ensure you will enjoy a memorable night.
