The breakfast was good and the staff was friendly and attentive.
The shower pressure and hot/cold mixer was inadequate. I understand that a burst water main had occurred a few months ago and that repairs were under way. But it didn't make the cold showers any warmer.
Noise from bar until about 11:30
Nice room and i fell at home
Room was lovely and cosy, very comfy bed. Food was nice. Quirky cosy pub!
Shower was very weak & could not always get correct temperature
Parking a it restricted
Good pub food
Staff is very nice The rooms are well decorated (but need new windows)
- Needs new windows for the street noise - Bathrooms would need serious renovations - Parking small but more room available when people leave the pub (quite late)
Room was very nice and comfortable, staff very friendly, very good location and the breakfast had plenty of choice, I would highly reccomend the garden house inn, we had a very enjoyable stay.
Very good food. Good continental breakfast. Good range of beers.
The location - just a short walk from centre of Durham. Bit of a hill coming back but no problem to us. Able to leave car on their carpark. Very tasty food in restaurant. Good continental breakfast.
The location was close to the town centre with good transport links however it was only a short stroll if you prefer to walk. The on site parking was a bonus and there was an attractive outside decking area to enjoy the good weather.the whole place was pleasantly presented but the rooms were a little tired and could do with a bit of attention especially the bathroom which was carpeted!!and the plumbing was noisy.
There wasn't really any thing to dislike but the inn is situated in between two main roads and traffic noise started early .there wasn't much staff presence during the day which made ordering at the bar difficult..but on the whole our stay was pleasant
Very clean, comfortable, very delicious cakes at breakfast
The shower, you can't control the tap from inside the shower room which is a bit weird; the road to city centre isn't very well lit at night
EVERYTHING WAS GREAT.
COULDN'T FAULT IT
Relaxed, quiet hotel. Staff were really friendly, good breakfast, room and bed were really comfortable.
ideal location, just a short walk in to town. Staff very friendly and attentive. Bedroom décor very nice, clean, crisp bedding and sheets. Evening meal very good.
pub didn't go quiet until 1am so did not have a very restful sleep. bathroom needs updating to match the bedroom, especially the shower. Not much space in the car park
Friendly staff..clean..& good food.
No fans or air conditioning in rooms so very hot...bed not the best quality
Warm welcome on arrival. Very nice room and very cosy. Ate in the restaurant on Saturday night, slow cooked lamb was to die for. Lovely food and wine. Very nice place to stay and explore Durham town. Will stay here again
We loved The Garden House Inn, Friendly staff,great continental breakfast and a short walk into Durham.
Everything. Lots of beautiful white towels each day. Food very good. Excellent location .
Breakfast could have been more interesting. Coffee pots very bad pourers. Coffee good .toast good. Me in host very good
Food was absolutely delicious, fresh produce and a spectacular starter of pickled cucumber in a light batter with a curried dip Beer and ale pie best I have ever eaten.......
Shower needed attention hot water failed to reach shower head
Very good in lots of ways. Really nice sheets!
Breakfast at 8am is a little late for someone here on business and considering it is continental, could it be made available earlier?
The pub/bar area is really nice - cosy, inviting and has a great atmosphere. Plus the bar food/snacks were good. The landlord was really friendly and helped ensure I was happy with parking my motorcycle from a security point of view. Five minute walk to the train station, 15 minutes to the cathedral - great!! Would definitely stay there again.
I felt the room rate for a pub B&B was high but it was Durham and graduation week so I reckon demand pushed the prices up the week I was there. Supply & demand at work!!
Friendly helpful staff. Comfortable room clean and nicely decorated. Food in resaurant excellent quality and taste. Continental breakfast with lots of choice and as much as you want.
Some traffic noise but not enough to disturb our sleep even with the window open.
