  • Victorian opulence: A popular hotel in Durham on Tripadvisor, this property is a quintessentially Victorian hotel, with a grandiose red brick facade and heritage interior decor: think brass etchings, marble tiles and stained glass windows. Formerly housing university offices, it's been beautifully converted into elegant guest rooms. 

  • Sophisticated dining: On the first floor you’ll find an incredible steakhouse boasting a fine selection of British classics to make you ravenous. For a truly indulgent treat, try the 35-day-aged steak paired with a glass of full-bodied red, sitting in a curved booth in the centre of the room for added privacy. 

  • Fine wines and craft brews: The hotel’s bar is housed under an impressive dome, with dark wood panels and plush indigo chairs lending an air of sophistication. Here, you can enjoy tapas and sharing plates over a classic cocktail or an impressive selection of craft beers and exclusive wines.


Please note that some dining and leisure facilities may be closed. Please call the hotel before you travel to find out if facilities have reopened.
