Our stay in Durham was at the Hotel Indigo.  When I was looking up hotels I was a little surprised at how few came up but lucky for us Hotel Indigo was one of them.  We paid £207 for two nights at the weekend for a decent sized double room.  It’s all quite jazzily decorated with microscopes, and scientific and astronomical pictures around the bedroom.  My one critique (of this hotel and every other I’ve stayed in) was that the pillows were super uncomfortable.

Around the rest of the hotel are more prints, as well as tiling, and stained glass.  The building used to university offices and that is apparent in the stained glass designs, as well as the coat hooks that were dotted around.  Our included breakfast was pretty decent, there was a continental buffet as well as a hot food menu.  We didn’t go for dinner in the hotel restaurant as it was a Marco Pierre White Steakhouse which I didn’t think would be great for veggies. But overall it was a great stay.
