Honest Lawyer Hotel
Good, dog friendly Hotel
We have stayed at The Honest Lawyer a few times now mainly because Mum can take her dogs with her. Our stay was pleasant enough. My room was very hot at night but the weather is something the hotel can't control. Our breakfast on the 1st morning was lovely and served to the table, the other 2 mornings it was a buffet self serve probably because the hotel was busy. My Mum found it difficult to use the bath or the shower as it was very slippery, there was no anti-slip bathmat provided until the last night. All in all a fine , dog-friendly hotel ideal for those visiting family in the area like us or to use as a base to explore the local area.

Very nice, good value hotel
Hotel was lovely and staff very pleasant and helpful. Motel style room at rear was very clean and had all we needed. No problem with traffic noise or noise from next rooms. Menu was nice but above average price but a 15% discount on food and drink given to us on arrival was very welcome. Some parts of meal could have been warmer which we mentioned to waitress at end of meal and she said she would report that to chef. Never heard any more though. We used public bus service from outside hotel into Durham City which worked well for us . Altogether a very good stay and would certainly recommend to others and use again if in area.

Good hotel. Great location for us (just off the dual carriageway). Restaurant food was amazing. Best I've had for the price. Deffo stay again.

All great, comfy bed. Only thing to be changed for better was that toilet seemed to be in a tiny space, wedged in between lovely large shower and wall.
