Hotel Indigo - Durham, an IHG Hotel, hotel in Durham

Centrally located in the historic city of Durham, Hotel Indigo Durham occupies Old Shire Hall, on Old Elvet, just 5 minutes from Durham Railway station and 1312 feet from Durham Cathedral and Castle.

The room was fantastic, not just in terms of décor but also size and design: lots of plugs, right where they should be (except bathroom but that's a British thing), good towels, good lighting and mirrors, good iron, good desk, Nespresso, free water bottles and cookies...). However, the breakfast was awful, I'd signed up for three mornings and returned two. They do have a great coffee house on the ground floor though.

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.

    Fantastic location pub with restaurant right next door food was excellent, beer not so. Only a short walk to the Bus Stop into Durham. The cottage had everything you need to Cook with and the host left milk and Cookies on arrival along with Tea Sugar and Coffee. Shame the TV didn't work but we weren't there to watch it, we kept up with the news on our own devices.

    Durham is beautiful and the cathedral and castle are magical. The cathedral is truly one of the best building I’ve ever seen. It even looks beautiful in the rain. Best to walk up from the river to get the true experience, it’s steep but lots of seats to rest if needed.

    We stayed 2 nights in the area and that was about right to see the city as it is not very big. The cathedral is stunning in size and scale, and the Palace Green area is impressive. The castle was closed off during our visit, but it is university accommodation anyway. The riverside walk is well worth doing.

    Beautiful city with historic sites - castle and cathedral etc. Plenty of places to eat, drink and shop. It is all very clean - no litter, dog's mess or graffiti and the public spaces (parks etc) are all very well kept. We travelled by train and then went out for a couple day trips by bus. Bus station is very efficient.

    Beautiful and dog-friendly city. Easy to get around.

    Beautiful and dog-friendly city. Easy to get around. Would recommend using the park and ride. Did the Riverside walk, then up into the cathedral grounds. Then visited Crook Hall, a National Trust property five minutes (on foot) from city centre. Beautiful cottage gardens and very friendly staff.

    Knew not a lot about the City, The cathedral was awe inspiring well worth a visit.. The Castle was closed as University open days and the museum was also closed due to repairs. But it had lots of young and vibrant students around which made a great atmosphere Lots of place to eat and drink and suitable for all preferences.
