Stayed at The Honest Lawyer on Thursday and Friday night last week. Easy enough to find as it's just off the A167 and a very short drive (2 miles away) to the centre of Durham. Check-in was straight forward and efficient. We stayed both nights in a Courtyard Room that was both immaculately clean and comfortable. The rear view of our room looked out onto a field. The room had a comfortable bed and the en-suite bathroom was equipped with power shower. Good sized TV with Freeview and the DVD / CD player was a nice touch. There was a little noise from the nearby road but that dies down and wasn't really a problem. We had breakfast both mornings (available up to 9:00am on weekdays and 10:00am at weekends). There was a good selection of cereal and toasts plus a hot help-yourself buffet consisting of the 'full english'. The staff seemed happy enough and offered plentiful tea/coffee top ups. We didn't have lunch or dinner at the hotel but ate out instead. Special mention to the Zen (Chinese Restaurant) in Durham and The Rupali (Indian Restaurant) in Newcastle both Excellent !!! We went to the Carling/02 Academy in Newcastle on the Friday night (to see The Enemy) and that was a really good gig venue. I booked our stay via the hotel website www.honestlawyerhotel.com and, having previously signed up for their newsletter, got an email advising of a £10 Spring promotion discount. This more than paid for our taxi (£6.00) back from Durham one night. Bargain. I'd certainly be happy to stay again at The Honest Lawyer as it offers a more than decent standard for a reasonable price plus I'd like to sample the lunch / dinner menu which looked excellent !!!!
