If you are going to the historic town of Durham you should avoid the big hotels as they dont capture the city. Gadds Town House describes itself as a restuarant with rooms but this is misleading. It is a crackingly good hotel in a sympathetically converted Georgian Town House ( mid 1700s?) The rooms are full of atmosphere but with all modern amenities, my room had an excellent roomy modern shower. The restaurant & bar are really pleasant places to linger and the staff are excellent. Located on Old Elvet the hotel is handy for all sightseeing and restaurants and is just the right distance from the centre to not be troubled by those oh so over exuberant students who think it is so clever to shout at each other as they stagger down the street at 2am!
Highly recommend this place, you wont be disappointed. Only one word of caution, this is a historic property and therefore does not have a lift. If you cant manage stairs then it may not be for you. ( Staff will very happily carry your bags for you though)
