Gem of a place.
Had a lovely one night stay and accommodation was much better than expected after reading other reviews.
We had no issues whatsoever with water pressure in our room as stated previously. The breakfast now has the option to have a cooked breakfast along with the continental option. We ate in the pub the night we stayed and the food was exceptional and the staff could not have been any friendlier. Great value for money all around.
The Garden House Inn
The only downside to our stay was the shower........which was literally a trickle and not easy to get right temperature.
However, it was a lovely pub and accommodation, staff were very friendly and helpful.
Great little place just outside the city centre
Conveniently located about 15 minutes walk from the centre, close to the train station, with cosy, comfortable rooms and a great breakfast in a quaintly decorated conservatory room, friendly staff and car parking.
Will definitely consider when I'm in the area again.
Hotel did it's job for a flying visit.
Staff and breakfast excellent. Room large but getting tired. Carpets and walls marked. Shower over bath didn't work. Free parking a bonus.
Much better than your average pub hotel
We had a very pleasant, large room, with a clean and bright bathroom.
Staff were all helpful and friendly, and the dinner we had in the pub restaurant was extremely tasty, far better than I'd expect from a pub, or indeed many restaurants. Breakfast was substantial and good, except for the instant coffee. The location is very handy, being only a ten minute walk from the town centre, but in a quiet area, so your sleep isn't disturbed. I'd definitely choose to stay there again.
Busy but lovely little place with plenty of character.
Bit further out of centre than we anticipated but nothing a taxi didn't solve.
Pleasant staff. Excellent food.. Bath/shower water control needs attention.
A good three days in the Durham Dales
Initial impression was 'oh dear'.
Decor on staircase is tired, and also in the room. However, the room was spotlessly clean and tea and coffee facilities were more than adequate. Meals in the pub were well cooked and portions more than sufficient. Staff were welcoming, friendly and helpful - both behind the bar and at breakfast time - but we were surprised not to have been offered a cooked breakfast. We would happily recommend the Garden House Inn to anyone visiting Durham.
Very comfy bed
Spacious rooms and comfortable beds.
Very cold the first night - the heating was not turned on. Found it disconcerting that there were no staff in the building overnight but did not need to contact anyone. Food excellent and good value for money but cold buffet breakfast only, no option of cooked breakfast.
