Reviews - The Garden House Inn

4Self Classified Inn Ratings explained
Framwellgate Peth, , , Durham, DH1 4NQ
Home-cooked food is served in The Garden House Inn’s wooden-beamed, contemporary restaurant and a roaring open-fire features in the bar. Free private parking is provided at this bed and breakfast, which is less than a mile from Durham’s historic city centre, and only a 10-minute walk from the rail station. The DLI Museum and Durham Art Gallery can also be reached after a 5-minute walk. Scenic strolls can be enjoyed next to the River Wear, which is just a 10-minute walk away. Durham’s cathedral and castle are within 1 mile of The Garden House. Fish and chips are a popular choice in the restaurant and can be enjoyed in the main restaurant or in the modern conservatory. The bar has free WiFi, and drinks can be enjoyed in the pretty garden seating area. Each stylish en suite room features a flat-screen TV, tea/coffee making facilities and a hairdryer. Newcastle city centre can be reached in 15 minutes by train, and the picturesque North Pennines are a 30-minute drive from the building.

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.

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.

Good Grub, Made to Feel Welcome!
Tasty evening meal and quality Continental breakfast (no greasy English option!), Wasn't a problem, left happy with a full tum! Room was clean and presentable, overlooked a busy street(in rush hour) but noise not really an issue. Bathroom not quite up to the standard of the rest - clean but basic with a poor bathtap shower. Would stay again.

Lovely room
The pub itself is very nice, only stopped for one drink but seemed a nice place. The room was very clean and spacious with tea and coffee available. Only down point was in the summer months they don't do a fried breakfast, just toast really,

Excellent stay
Lovely stay. Hotel staff really accomodating and made an early breakfast for us as we were leaving early to get to the Great North Run
Wish we had had the time to look around Durham however we were pushed for time but the hotel was ideally situated for sight seeing
