A warm welcome to the Honest Lawyer Hotel, near Durham University and an authentic and individual place to stay for leisure or business on the edge of Durham City, home to a World Heritage Site Cathedral in a county of contrasts.
Set close to the banks of the River Wear, our unique hotel offers a comfortable stay in rural surroundings with Durham’s history, arts, culture and shopping just minutes away.
We pride ourselves on our individuality, and our friendly staff, most of whom are from the local area, offer the kind of genuine welcome for which the North East is known.
All our 51 individual bedrooms are furnished in calm, contemporary style to provide a peaceful haven and a restful night's sleep.
Bedrooms are offered on a room only basis and our sumptuous full English and continental breakfast is served daily in Bailey's restaurant in the main hotel building
