Hotel Indigo opens in Durham

New hotel occupying Grade II-listed Old Shire Hall has 83 bedrooms and Marco Pierre White restaurant.

Hotel Indigo has opened in the centre of Durham, with 83 boutique bedrooms and a Marco Pierre White restaurant. 

A stone’s throw from the city’s cathedral and castle – which together make up the city’s famous UNESCO World Heritage Site – the hotel is also within easy walking distance from Durham train station.

Famous for its university, Durham is laden with historic pubs, listed buildings, cosy cafes and spellbinding churches, surrounded by rolling countryside and quiet villages. 

Occupying the Grade II-listed ‘Old Shire Hall’, the building was once a university building itself and acted as its administrative headquarters; it was office to the university’s Vice-Chancellor until 2012.

Guests can choose from a selection of fine wines or local craft beers at the hotel’s Rotunda bar or grab a coffee at Tinderbox Espresso Bar. For cocktails and dinner, the Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar & Grill offers guests English and French classics.

The Hotel Indigo brand is set to increase its portfolio in 2018 with upcoming openings also including Hotel Indigo London – 1 Leicester Square, Hotel Indigo London – Aldgate, Hotel Indigo Milan – Corso Monforte and Hotel Indigo Stratford-upon-Avon.
