Set in former university offices at Old Shire Hall, office to the university’s Vice-Chancellor until 2012, Hotel Indigo Durham has 83 boutique bedrooms with ornate details to reflect the rich ties to the city’s famous trinity of cathedral, castle and university.

The hotel is managed by Interstate Europe, a third-party hotel management company, which has 72 properties in its portfolio across the UK.
