We went for a meal with friends, as soon as we walked in we were immediately greeted by a very cheerful waitress. We were treated like VIPs from that very moment. We were shown into the restaurant where the service was excellent. I had the steak burger which was perfectly cooked and i would recommend it to everybody. we greatly enjoyed our time here and would go back in a heartbeat!

We stayed at the Honest Lawyer on the 20th May 2011. From first contact to ending our stay, Julie, Chris and the rest of the Guys made us feel welcome and very special. The level of service, attention to detail and care was excellent. We felt like Kate and Wills. The room was in a boutique style, with airy and light accents throughout. Bathroom and shower were very clean and bright. With easy links to Durham, and room information to help with days out. The Honest Lawyer delivers, for a family break, business meeting or a romantic night away. We cant thank you Guys enough, thank you so much.

Best regards,

Barry Sanderson

We were staying with disabled parents, their room was everything they could wish for with first class facilities, ours was again first class. From booking to leaving we felt we were special to the hotel, all staff were smiling and helpful, food was excellent and "special requests" were catered for without a problem.
We could not fault with anything or anyone, reception, waitresses, kitchen, housekeeping, everyone went out of their way to make this one of the most pleasant hotel experiences we have ever had.
Thank you.
We will be back.

Room Tip: When booking just ask and they will try to oblige

We stayed on a Bank Hol weekend and couldn't fault a thing! Super friendly staff, very smart rooms, fab breakfast, convenient for Durham, all round a great stay! We loved parking the car at the door, great for unloading, and then a bus into town from the hotel and only £8 in a taxi home. Free glass of champers went down a treat! We loved the breakfast, especially made to order pastries, no waste on the buffet and warm to your plate! Bed linen superb and the bed really comfy-we heard no traffic, view out of window very pretty! We only live 20 miles away but worth staying here for a night out- great value!

we stay at many hotels and have been disappointed by many but this hotel left us delighted. on arrival we were a little disconcerted by the outside as it looked a little like a motel but it turned out to be great. we were able to park right outside the door to the room so no problems with luggage. the staff were helpful and friendly (the asst manager works very hard and nothing is too much trouble). the room was very clean and comfortable. just across the road was a bus stop to Durham City which offers a great day out or in the opposite direction you have Darlington. In the evening we enjoyed a lovely dinner in the restaurant at a very reasonable price. So an all round good experience so i would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here.
