I cannot express what a wonderful time we had at the Victoria Inn. It is tripping distance to the cathedral and well situated. The staff were all incredibly friendly. The interior is so beautiful and wonderful, I felt like we were staying in an exhibit in the Victoria and Albert Museum - just so so beautiful having won awards for...

Years ago I have had the odd drink here when I lived in the city. As we were visiting our remaining family and friends it was recommended to us to stop here overnight so we booked up for one night only. Nothing has changed, just the staff and locals are a tad older. This is very much a Victorian pub...

Stayed here two nights for the Christmas market in Durham. This is a conveniently-located, comfortable, very friendly and excellent pub if you want to explore Durham. It is a Victorian gem with character, coal fires, excellent beer and parking thrown in. The decor, pictures, furniture and collectables all give an authentic feel, but the real plus is how friendly the...

Having parked on this road for years when visiting Durham, I have missed an absolute hidden gem. The beer, gin, staff, room, fabulous. We felt so welcome by staff and locals. Will absolutely return when we find a reason. Great city too.

I have to admit to being a little unsure as we entered the bar area on arrival but we were warmly and efficiently welcomed and shown up to our room (lots of stairs so you need to be prepared to climb!). The room was delightful - clean, comfortable and well furnished. The breakfast was excellent - a lovely lady was...

From the moment we walked into The Victoria Inn till the moment we left we felt we were not paying guests but friends. Couldn't have been treated better(and the ale was great as well). No tv in pub, no games, no music, just good people and good talk. Room very comfortable. Location perfect (about a 6 minute walk to Cathedral,...

Our only mistake was not staying here longer as we only had a one-night stop-over in Durham. This would have been a great place to base ourselves. It is so perfectly located with everything within a gentle stroll away. Durham Cathedral is just over the footbridge next to the university student union building. Durham is so beautiful and compact, the...

Stayed one night Sep16 - Room was lovely - 4 poster, ensuite and had a great nights sleep. Breakfast was spot on - full works set us up for the day. What really makes the Victoria stand out is the people - both the staff, who could not have been more helpful, and the locals who had me and Tina...
