The Honest Lawyer Hotel, a 51 bedroom, 3* hotel and AA rosette restaurant is a modern hotel offering a friendly welcome, comfortable accommodation and a variety of dining options, all ideally located less then 3 miles from Durham City Centre. The Honest Lawyer is an affordable alternative to city centre accommodation. 40 standard rooms are located on the courtyard ‘American motel style’ allowing you to park right outside of your door, along with 6 four-poster rooms located on the 1st floor of the main building.

The hotel’s renowned AA rosette awarded Baileys Restaurant and the Atrium Restaurant serve food all day, offering a quality combination of locally sourced food, a relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. Menus change seasonally, created by respected Executive Head Chef Harry Bailie, with inspired dishes and hearty classics. Bailey’s Bar offers a more relaxed dining option, where dishes such as the popular Home made classic steak burger, garnish, relish and stay crisp French fries are served, along with an extensive selection of beers, wines, spirits and speciality teas and coffees are available throughout the day, along with a lite-bite lunch menu.

The hotel is pet friendly, welcoming pets free of charge into our courtyard rooms and a number of 'pet friendly' tables are available in the Atrium Restaurant.

Bus routes to Durham and Newcastle stop directly outside of the hotel, as frequently as every 15 minutes.

The hotel is ideally located for exploring everything that Durham has to offer, including the famous Beamish Museum, as well as Durham Cathedral and Castle and the Bowes Museum. Discount is available to Beamish Museum for all hotel guests.
