About Hotel Indigo Durham

Your perfect city escape

Moments from the historic city centre, Hotel Indigo Durham is located in the former Old Shire Hall building on Old Elvet just 5 minutes from Durham railway station.

The hotel is perfectly located to experience all that this charming city has to offer, with the city’s magnificent trinity; the university, the castle and the world-renowned Durham Cathedral just a short stroll away.

From Hotel Indigo Durham, you’re just a short walk away from everything. Every walk here is a delight, whether it’s along the River West, through the university’s botanic gardens, or down narrow “vennels”, the tight alleyways that cut between city centre buildings.

Down these side streets you’ll find some wonderful places to eat and drink, including Vennels Cafe, a local institution famed for its homemade quiche and chocolate cake. No visit to Durham is complete without picking up some of the sensational range of fresh local produce available from the beautiful, 150-year-old covered market.

I stayed at Hotel Indigo Durham in opening week. Wow, what a stunning hotel! From arrival to check out, the guest experience was great. Can you recommend somewhere to go for a drink and eat? No problem, even recommended what to try! Maybe I'll have the squirrel next time!
