If you’ve been trawling the internet for a romantic place to rest your fashionable head for the night, look no further then Gadds Town House in Durham.
Perfect for that special occasion or night of indulgence, this Georgian Grade II listed Town House has 11 individually decorated and themed rooms that exude luxury and glamour.
Two of the rooms — Eden Lodge and Garden Lodge—are located in the secluded garden, and each has its own private outdoor hot tub. Swoon.
You can take a step back in time to the days of aristocratic elegance if you stay in The Cruise, and Edwardian Express. The Cruise is decorated like an officer’s cabin, with curved walls and portholes mirrors. The Edwardian Express is like a first Class Rail Carriage from the early 1900s.
If it’s more of a boudoir feel you’re looking for, Amethyst and Indigo are perfect. Both have a freestanding bath actually in the room, and are decorated in deep purple, red, black and gold.
Le Jardin, La Rouge, The Penthouse and The Bijoux Loft, all have a French feel. With a lighter décor of mostly Cream and Gold, these rooms are chic without being over-the-top.
Prices range from £99-£250, depending on which room you choose, and when you stay. If you work up an appetite while there, the hotel also is Durham’s only five star-rated restaurant with rooms, with a Lunch, Dinner, and Sunday Lunch menu.
So if elegance, style, and luxury are your thing, book into Gadds Town House for an unforgettable experience.
