Hotel in Durham

Dating from 1724, this traditional English country inn is located on the edge of picturesque Shincliffe village, 2.4 km from Durham and Durham University. This property was a little gem, a 300 year old pub just outside Durham. We stayed 3 nights loved it so much would have liked to stay longer. The meals were excellent, great breakfast, staff friendly, cute little bar to enjoy and relax in after a day of sightseeing. We would recommend this property to our family and friends.

Bowburn Hall Hotel 3 stars

Hotel in Durham

Approximately 6.5 km from Durham, this small country house hotel has easy access to the A1(M) and features 19 individually styled en suite bedrooms. This hotel was amazing! Despite being slightly out the way, it was well worth the confusion!! Wasn’t sure what to expect upon arrival as reception was tiny and random however the lovely lad that greeted us and checked us in was lovely and really helpful! Our room was amazing, we stayed in number 9, an executive room. I was absolutely gob smacked at how beautiful the room was and for the price we paid! Bed was huge, comfy and fresh. The hotel in general was very clean and staff were constantly on the clean. Breakfast was beautiful. Prices at the bar and restaurant were fantastic for the hotel standard. Could happily stay here for nights at a time with no need to leave the grounds. Only returned this morning and have already rebooked for 2 different occasions.

FAQs about hotels in Durham

Sacred English Heritage

Durham could definitely be one of those towns that appear in fairy tales and stories of kings and knights. Lying on a hilled peninsula formed by the Wear River, the striking cathedral overlooks from the hilltop, surrounded by the castle, palaces and historic buildings. Get transported back in time by the magic of this English jewel, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Though archaeological evidence suggests the area has been inhabited since 2000 BC, the present-day settlement was founded by monks from Lindisfarne in 995, choosing the area as the final resting place of Saint Cuthbert. Symeon of Durham stated once that ‘to see Durham is to see the English Zion, and by doing so one may save oneself a trip to Jerusalem’. Hotels and B&Bs in Durham’s historic centre are a popular choice to enjoy this historic legacy.

Its powerful religious position granted such great honour to the city, that the bishop still holds the rights to a seat in the House of Lords, and to accompany the sovereign at the coronation. During the 19th century and encompassing the industrial revolution, the university was founded, with Durham Castle becoming its first college.

Whether you’re searching for a cottage, a modern hotel, or a cheap hostel, Booking.com offers a wide range of accommodation in the area.
